Welcome! My goal is to do my very best to understand your situation and to provide a full and complete answer for you.
Good morning. They are responsible for the cost of you relocating. The landlord is in default by breaching the implied warranty
of habitability that comes with all rentals. As a result, you have the right to terminate and the landlord not only must reimburse your security deposit
, the landlord must also pay all damages
incurred, which includes the cost of relocating. In addition, it would include a reimbursement of a portion of past rent during the period you had to cope with this prior to termination due to being deprived of the full benefit of your rental bargain. If the landlord will not pay you voluntarily, file a claim against both the landlord and the property manager in small claims court. The landlord or the property manager do not get to make up the law to suit themselves. Once the suit is filed and a judgment awarded, you become a judgment creditor, and if the losing party doesn’t then pay the judgment, you can have the sheriff serve a summons on the losing party for a debtor examination. That forces the losing party to meet the judgment creditor in court and answer questions under oath about the losing party's assets. After that information is obtained, the judgment creditor has the power to \attach bank accounts, have the sheriff seize other personal property, and/or place liens on any non-homestead
property to satisfy the judgment.
