Dear Sir / Madam, I rented this apartment about a month ago and have been plaguing by the noise from the aircrafts – daily – due to the fact that the apartment is in close proximity to the Sky Harbor Airport Flight Path.

Breaking the lease

Tenant | Tuesday, August 18th, 2009 12:56 pm

I moved into my first apartment with my girlfriend a few months ago here in Dayton, Ohio. Since we’ve moved in, we have had nothing but problems. Our dishwasher did not work and we had to hand wash everything for nearly 3 months until they finally got us a new one. Mold has grown on […]

Invasion of Privacy?

Mary | Monday, August 3rd, 2009 2:53 pm

I have a large problem. My husband and I live on the ground floor, “garden level” of a brownstone. I work from home, and this summer my landlord has been out in the backyard every other day–no rhyme or reason to his madness (except to get away from the ball and chain, literally) and this […]

Landlord Breach?

glmo | Thursday, July 23rd, 2009 6:13 pm

I know it is hard to answer without seeing this particular lease, but any general advice would be a great help! My landlord gave a renewal notice less than 30 days prior to the termination of my lease.  In the letter, it stated we have to give 30 days notice if I was to vacate […]
