Can I refuse to pay my rent if my apartment complex wont fix the mailboxes?
2 Answers from Attorneys
There's not much information here. Start by asking the complex to make repairs in writing. Send it by certified mail, return receipt requested, so you have proof of your request. If you don't pay rent, you may be evicted. The following website has good information on Florida landlord-tenant law with links to the Florida statutes. Read the section on "Who is Responsible" before taking action. http://www.800helpfla.com/landlord_text.html
If they refuse to fix the mail boxes after the notification, I suggest you read the landlord/tenant rights as stated by Ms. Longa. You might also contact the post office and let them be aware of whatever the problem is.
