I signed a one year lease with my current landlord for apartment rental in September 2019. I have paid all my monthly rents on time and fulfilled all the responsibilities expected of the tenant. It's written in the lease that
“Landlord hereby lets the following property to Tenant for the term of this Agreement: (a) the real property known as: ***(name of the street), Apartment ###(number of the unit) And (b) the following furniture and appliances on said property: Furniture and appliances in the living room and kitchen.”
The fact is my landlord has also been living in the apartment the entire time from before the start of the lease to now and sharing the living room and kitchen. I didn’t move in immediately when the lease began on September 1st 2019, and the landlord lived in the smaller bedroom of the apartment for the first week of that month without my written consent of any kind. He has then moved to live in the master bedroom of the apartment and directed me to live in the smaller bedroom ever since. In the meantime, the amount of the rent the landlord has charged me remained the same as specified in the lease.
What's the process for moving out ASAP and get my deposit back
To correct this will require an attorney. You need to contact an experienced tenant attorney to discuss your rights. It would unfortunately take all of the 4000 letters they give us to respond and then some to completely address each of the issues your question poses
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.
