Landlord Breach of Contract

By jennifer

I live in Dayton, OH in a fairly large apartment community corporately managed by a company that owns and manages 116 apartment communities across ten states.   My central air has been non functioning since July of last year.  


Corporate is now ‘offering’ to move me to a different apartment within the same community, but states they will only pay to move the following ‘large items': washer/dryer, beds, mattresses, dressers, chests, TV’s, couches, recliners, entertainments centers, desks, and tables and chairs.  All personal items would be my responsible to pack and move.


The past 4 or 5 times I have moved, I have hired movers. I hired movers to move me when I moved to this apartment.  I used Two Men and a Truck and can likely get printed records to document that I did pay movers to move me.  Since I now have to move, due to the landlord’s breach of contract, are they responsible to cover 100% of the cost of my move?  Could their costs also include charges incurred by me for something as simple as the need for a cable tech come out to re-set up my cable in the new apartment?


Any advice is greatly appreciated.
