Landlord/tenant question. I signed a lease and the property

Customer Question

Landlord/tenant question. I signed a lease and the property was not move-in ready, i.e. cleaned or fumigated. Do I have to pay protated rate for the days the unit was not ready for me to move in, even though I have already signed the lease?

Hello and welcome! My name is ***** ***** I will try my level best to help with your situation or get you to someone who can.


Have you been put in actual possession of the dwelling as of the lease start date on your written contract?


Or did they delay possession so they could clean and fumigate?
