please help me ladies i know this is tottally o/t but i really need opinions piog
Ok heres the story! We moved into this apartment when we first got married 2 almost 3 years ago. We have had nothing but trouble since. They take forever to fix stuff if at all! We were young and dumb and first time renters and we didnt know about documenting reports and putting rent in an escrow account so we never did. When it came time to renew our lease we didnt want to but couldnt find anywhere else suitable for rent,.We tried to buy a house but didnt qualify. So we renewed our lease for another year. its gone from bad too worse they fired the old handyman but the new ones just as bad. they have done numerous horrible things includeing spraying bleach treatment on my kitchen floor with out me home and failing to tell me they were doing so i have 2 dog and 2 kids one of them being a young toddler!!! kids have keyed our car theres police here every other day our neighboris a drug dealer who beats up his girlfriend! its not a safe enviroment for my kids anymore. So we finally qualified for a house. We gave them verbal conformation that we were moving twice neither time did they say they needed a written notice or that we would be on the hook for the left over money for the remainder of our lease (7 months). The day before we are moving they call and tell us if we move we will be liable for the rest of the money and that we needed to give them written notice! seriously! they decide to tell us this the day before. So ladies what do I do? i mean I know I have to move I already paid all the closing costs on my house and everything. Staying put is not an option. Do you guys think i have a chance in court even though things are un documented and i dont have money in an escrow? with all the problems we have had? Im not sure since I never sent a certified letter or anything. what do you guys think I should do? do you think I could get off or at least money off in court? Does anyone have any knowledge in this area they are willing to share ?because I dont know anything. Please? Help!
