Unsafe Rental

By Tenant

my husband got stationed in colorado, we have been renting a house for 7 months now. we have had sevral problem with our mangement company. They never come out and fix anything when called it takes 3 weekes for a responce. We when have had people messing with our garage door key pad and opening it when we would be sleeping. We call and asked how we go about changing the code on it. Plus there has been things stolen for our yard. Well last Sat our house was broke into and they used the key pad for the garage. I want to know if there is a law saying i can break my lease because i don’t feel safe living there we have 2 kids living in the home as well.

It seems that you can’t get a hold of your landlord. I’m unsure about such law but as far as any other leases go the safety of the tenants should be a priority. With that for any issues related to the rental should be forwarded to the landlord for fixing. You should file a complaint in that way your landlord can come out :) http://www.rentalprotectionagency.com/complaint_center.php.
