I moved in here and from the day I moved in I have listened to several dogs bark it's all day every day I have written emails explaining the dogs barking the response every time is I'm sorry we will serve them with a final notice 8 months later I'm still listening to dogs bark I also have called security on several occasions complaining nothing gets done what are my legal rights for breaking my lease and getting my deposit back ? Thanks Denise Bannick

Have you called animal control and/or the police? Who have you written the emails to? Have you kept a log of the barking (dates, times, etc)? Do you know whose dogs are barking? Have you talked to the dog's owners
I doubt that you will be able to break your lease and get your deposit back but it won't hurt to ask.
If we do not have a signed fee agreement I am not your attorney and this is not legal advice.

The other attorney gave you good advice. You might be able to break a lease if the landlord fails to provide "peace" but whether it is within the landlord's control is another issue. I have had similar cases in the past, and it was not easy to come up with a definite answer as to the tenant's rights.
The law is complicated and although the facts expressed may seem to be all that is relevant, there may be many other important facts to consider. Also, the law is constantly undergoing change, so what may be correct today, may not be accurate tomorrow. Only a full consultation with an attorney experienced or knowledgeable in the specific legal subject matter is likely to result in the optimal course of action. My practice has entailed more than a 30 year span of many real estate issues. Find out more about me at: FloridaPropertyLitigation.com.
