That would be a defense if evicted for non payment. She can also do a rent withhold, but I am under the impression that you want to terminate the lease.

I am suggesting that, rather than wait for the landlord to sue, she sues now for breach of the lease.

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.

Wonderful service, prompt, efficient, and accurate. Couldn't have asked for more. I cannot thank you enough for your help.
