In September of 2018 I signed a new lease agreement with a increase in rent due to the new property owner stating they were giving me new black appliances: refrigerator, stove, and dishwasher. New black granite counter tops and shampoo the carpet. This is written in the lease. They have done none of this. Can they be held liable for not holding up to their agreement.
Maybe, it would start with a visit to an attorney to read the lease and see how binding and enforceable the promise is, according to the lease language. You may also have a tort action for fraud in the inducement. Your damages may not be high enough to merit litigation. One measure of damages would be for breach of contract (lease) is benefit of the bargain. Another measure would be the amount of rent increase that you paid. What are we talking $100-200/mo for this past few months? A demand letter will help and believe it or not a bad review honestly given on the internet is very impactful.
