Your landlord may not have a legal obligation to provide you with a copy of the lease, however her statement that "legally she can't give you a copy" is just plain wrong. There is NO law stating that a landlord is prohibited from giving a copy of the lease to the tenant.



thank you


You can ask an attorney to request a copy for you. Aside from filing a lawsuit, I don't know of another way to compel her to provide you with a copy.
