Has my landlord broken the lease?

By Scarecrow713

In my lease the landlord stated that they would provide internet service. They haven’t provided service in over a month and just sent me an email stating they would no longer be providing the service. Is this a violation on their part?

Yes, it is a violation on their part. Since your lease agreement tells you that there should be internet service then there should be one. It service is one of the things that you’re paying for in your rent anyway. So since that has not been provided, talk to you landlord and see if you could prorate the rent or mutually agree to annul the lease agreement. If the landlord refuses to cooperate, you can file a formal complaint against him. The RPA has a complaint center that you can use. Do try and check it out.
