Hello. My name is***** am an attorney. I will review your question. I may need to clarify facts first. I will answer & we can discuss issues.
Usually a landlord would let this go because they would not want this to escalate. Certainly a person has a right to feel and BE safe in their apartment. And the fact that she moved out is proof of the unsafe conditions. What this is called is a "constructive eviction," meaning the landlord effectively evicted her due to the unsafe conditions called in violation of the warranty of habitability. We can discuss further if you would like to do so.
Hello: I have not heard back from you. I am following up to see if you still need further help. If so, please let me know.
