Urgent Advice Needed - Roach-Filled Rental Apt !
Our first day at the apartment,we were greeted with live and dead roaches. Our lease agreement is based on a month-to-month and so far we've pre-paid for the month of Dec.2002 and also included a security deposit.Due to a fear of possible roach-transmitted diseases, we've decided to vacate the place ASAP.And with a 18-month old baby,we cannot afford to compromise his health. However,I understand we've already signed a lease agreement and I need to know if I've the right to demand for the return of my pre-paid rent w/security deposit base on grounds of ''un-tenable or unhabitable conditions'' ?? And should we leave the dead roaches as they are as evidence? Please advise ASAP so we know what to do now.Thank you very much!
