I'm leasing a home in an expensive and quiet neighborhood and the home next door has recently been town down and a new home is under construction. It's a typically loud and disruptive construction site. I'm midway through the year-long lease term and would like to move. The construction hadn't begun when i signed the lease and the owner couldn't have reasonably known it was going to happen.
The leasing agency is treating our initial conversations as though we are trying to break the lease - that the owner must be made whole according to the terms of the lease, which is silent with regard to the quiet or peaceful enjoyment clause.
Am I right that the construction violates my right to quiet enjoyment and invalidates the lease agreement?
