Can I sue my landlord for raccoons?

You may sue for whatever you wish. You would need to prove to a court that raccoons n the attic makes the rental unit "uninhabitable". The landlord would have to show they have made a reasonable effort to remove these. Note the focus is on "reasonable".

How can I get out of my lease because of noise?

Record the noise if it's clearly audible from your apartment. Report the excessive noise to the landlord immediately and keep a record of your contact with the landlord in your journal as well. Call the local authorities to report major instances of noise violations according to your local ordinance.

How do I report a noise ordinance violation?

Call the cops
The LAPD suggests that noise complaints, from loud TVs to awful parties, are best dealt with by your local police station. Call them at (877) ASK-LAPD (275-5273). Do not call 911. If your neighbor complaint is more of the barking dog variety, try the city's Animal Care and Control Department.

What can landlords tell new landlords?

Rest assured there are no privacy laws limiting what a landlord can or can't disclose about a previous tenant. You can say anything you wish. However, our advice is to stick to the facts and only give information that you can support with written proof so that your former tenants won't accuse you of slander.

Can a landlord look in my bedroom?

It depends. Landlords usually can only justify looking into areas which are easily accessible to others who might be allowed to enter with your permission. So closets, cabinets and refrigerators are OK. They cannot, however, enter locked spaces for which they have no key if your lease with them is current.

Can my landlord kick me out for no reason?

Answer. Although you say that your landlord “evicted you” for no apparent reason, chances are you're talking about receiving a termination notice, telling you to move within a certain number of days or face an eviction lawsuit. Only the court can order an eviction, and only a designated officer can carry it out.

Can you sue landlord for emotional distress?

Even if the lease says you're taking the property as is and the landlord has no obligation to make repairs, those terms are invalid. A lease cannot override the law. If the landlord doesn't maintain a livable a rental, you have grounds to sue. It's probably easier to sue over habitability than emotional distress.

Can a landlord force you to stay?

In most states, landlords are not allowed to hold the tenant to the terms of the lease while the unit sits vacant. In these states, even though the tenant has breached the lease by leaving early, the landlord must try to re-rent the place—even if during inconvenient times, like the middle of winter.
