My landlord is actually leasing the whole house from another person and we are leasing from her (which has come to my attention that this may be illegal to begin with). To begin with she has already had a friend of hers play as her landlord and threatened my fiance and pushed him. (filed a report but didn't press charges)). We want OUT! She has constantly tried to control everything (not in the lease) and she has allowed her kids to come into our apartment. Our lease states she can enter at all and any reasonable times to inspect the dwelling, work on it, or show it to prospective tenants. I don't think she can change our thermostat by law but she has control now. We only pay a flat renting fee with utilities included. Please help.Also, we have the basement and automatically it is way colder then the upstairs. She had told us we have our own heating system but we come to find we don't. When our thermostat is placed on Auto, she has control. (She placed this on Auto tonight and this morning because it was cold I had changed it to fan so we can actually get heat). I want to know if we can break this lease in any way without being held accountable to pay our rent amount until when the lease is supposed to be up.
