My landlord went through my things in my storage bin and I had a cabinet collapsed on me didn't ask if I was OK but said I needed to pay for it and he promised carpet because a guy downstairs was scaring my autistic son for jumping by banging and yelling at my son he is 4 but now he wants me to pay for the carpet can I break my lease? He also threatened me with job and family about calling my case worker but I don't go through job and family I don't know what he is talking about so I gave him a 30 day notice I have everything on text messages he said to me but with all of this can I break my lease?
No, you can't just break your lease, but it may be a good idea to talk to the landlord about how this isn't working well and you should part ways. Most legitimate landlords are confident that they will not have trouble renting their place to another tenant. Yes, a landlord can look through your storage--it's his house and he can check on things. To charge you for the broken cabinet, the landlord would have to prove you broke it. A landlord is not required to have carpeting, and if you are the one who wants it to be there, he can charge you to put it there.
