I have done that. But there is no way to find a number or anything to contact anyone. And the propery manager tells us that they will not be nice to us if we were to call them.

Is the property owned by a LLC, corporation, or individual? If it is one of the firs two, an LLC, or corporation, there are names of members or a registered agent. If it is an individual and you have address, there are many ways through google to find and do a reverse directory if you have a name and address.

when I look it up online at the recorder of deeds it states **** (there is a name there but don't want to put on a public forum) Partners. there is no LLC after. and when I google it there is no information at all. So I take it that I am needing to live with the living conditions until my lease is up no matter how bad it gets since I can not speak to anyone higher up than this leasing agent.

The problem you have is that I am assuming the lease indicates the management team is supposed to maintain property. Since they are not doing it, you have three options, get an attorney which costs money, live there until lease is out, or move. You could argue that they have constructively breached your lease by not maintaining the property, and if they keep your deposit, sue them in small claims court where you don't need an attorney. Hope this helps.

I have many things. Right now it's a situation of my heater being a hazard and code enforcement is due out this week. I have typed up a letter of all the situations from my heater, to an agressive dog that attack people and the owners not putting him on a leash, to no lights at night, to things being destroyed my the maintence crew and then it not being fixed, etc. I think maybe my letter and pictures will help me get out of the lease. thing is the apartment I found won't be ready until next week and my rent is due on the 1st. I can't afford to pay rent at both places. Do I give notice asking them to prorate my rent and let me out of the lease with out penalty or do I tell them I vacated the apartment and not pay the rent? I want to look good if I need to go to court.

It sounds like you documented everything. Try to get out of the lease, but don't be surprised when they say no. That way, like you said, you have been above board with them, notified them, and tried to work it out.

I have proof that they let another individual out of the lease for many of the same reasons that I will be providing to them. Thanks!

ok. any other ideas. the property sent out THIEIR contractor (who is relation to owner) and won't give permission to pick one out of phone book to come in. Their contractor says it's safe.
