Legal Question

Asked on: 7/31/13, 12:18 pm

My landlord didnt change my locks before I moved into my home. I had approx $1600 in electronics stolen from my home. The back door had a wooden bar nailed to it when I viewed the home and when I asked the landlord why it was there, he said it was just something the last tenant did. I have now found out that the back door was broken into when the last tenant lived there as well however when the cops came to investigate my home after my robbery, they noted it was no forced entry and by means of key. The landlord hasn't responded to my call or emails for a week when I asked had they taken measures to change my locks before leasing to me. At this point, I just want out of my lease and my question is... Do I have a case against my landlord to get the cost of my belongings?
