That is an excellent question, and it depends on the cause of action you sue them for. If you were injured as a result of their failure to maintain the unit in a habitable condition, then arguably yes, you'd be entitled to your attorney's fees. The attorney who reviews your case will have to make that determination.
A proper response would require a much more thorough and complete investigation into the history and facts set forth in your question. Any statements provided by me regarding your inquiry is nothing more than an opinion, and does not represent legal advice or create a client relationship.
