I want out of this lease

13 01 2010

That’s right, it’s time for apartment updates!

Ugh.  Where do I start? A few days ago we tried to run our dishwasher.  It made a horrible squealy noise before dumping water onto the floor.  Awesome.  Someone came out today and looked at it.  The water line has been chewed through.  By a mouse.  This would be the same mouse problem that we’ve been bitching about for 2 YEARS.  Seriously.

In fact, the mouse/mice have suddenly caused a HUGE problem.  In the entire building.  Out of 8 units, they’re replacing 3 dishwashers, 2 refrigerators, and a water line.  NOW they’re finally sending out an inspector.  Gosh.  Also, they still haven’t fixed the leak in the roof/attic that causes rain in our stairwell during every storm.

So yeah, I want out of this damn lease.  They don’t fix anything in a timely manner, if they manage to fix it at all, and our water bill has doubled (and according to a maintenance guy today, next month will be worse due to a water main bursting on the property last Saturday).  Anyone familiar with TX tenant rights?  Want to help me get out of this lease without buying it out?
