To cut a long story short, my apartment has an issue with the plumbing that caused sewage water to backup into the place, flooding the laundry room, kitchen, and one bedroom. The landlord is aware of the issue, claims he cannot afford to fix it, and admits the place may flood again until it is fixed. This is all in writing, mind you. He agreed to let us out of the lease and said we need to give him 14 days notice when we found a new place. We gave him 21 days notice, with the last day of occupancy being mid February; however, now he is threatening to file suit for the full amount of February's rent if it is not paid. There is nothing in our lease covering pro-ration one way or the other beyond how our first month was pro-rated. Is he completely nuts or should I pay the whole month?Oh yes! I should also add that I did all the cleanup from the original flooding myself. The water soaked through the plaster walls into another room but the landlord has done nothing about it.
