I am in Affordable Income Housing and recently discovered that I have been illegally overcharged a small amount each month...

Asked over 1 year ago - Salt Lake City, UT

At the same time, due to a technicality in the lease, I am being forced to go to a month to month contract at least for one more month before they let me leave the community. Can they get in trouble for overcharging me and can I use that knowledge as leverage to get out of my lease?

    Providing this answer does not form an attorney-client relationship. Most legal questions are exceedingly fact-... more
