Customer Question

Hello Mam - I live in an apartment that I have lived in for a number of years. The apartment has had a series of plumbing issues and one sagging kitchen cabinet that though many times management came and look at but did not fix. I am concerned for the safety and decided to move. But I renenwed the lease of this apartment in September'2016 for a year. The management is asking for lease buy out of $3900. Do I have any options?
