We have been without warm water for 14 days now. Supposedly, it is in the process of getting fixed, but still is not. I am wanting to get out of my lease, and want to know if I can do so due to the landlords negligence towards problems.
We have also had mold in the bathroom for over six months, and the air conditioning and windows were (and still are) broken in my bedroom during the summer, so there was no conditioning or air flow. The landlord claims he was never made aware of these, and I do not have the proof from six months ago. However, I do have textual evidence of informing of him of these issues about 20 days ago and the problems have not been addressed, let alone fixed.
Do these situations give me reason enough to argue that the landlord broke the lease, thereby ending it and allowing me to get out?
For a specific answer to a specific situation, you will need to consult an attorney directly.
Nebraska Legal Aid has a handbook regarding landlord/tenant issues that offers some general information that may be a good place for you to start. The link:
Although I am an attorney practicing law in Nebraska, the answer I provide is for general purposes only and does not establish an attorney-client relationship. If you need legal advice, you should contact an attorney who will discuss with you the specific facts of your case.
