Is My Landlord Trying To Evict Me For Smoking?

I received a letter from the management company stating that they had received an “official complaint” that smoke originating in my unit has continually permeated into surrounding units.

Smoky The Guest

The neighbor’s boyfriend smokes and drinks all day. My apartment stinks even though I keep the windows closed. What can I do?

Are Broken Elevators Against The Law?

The elevator at my building has been out of order for more than a month, and we have no indication that repairs will take place anytime soon.

Smoked Out

Our lease prohibits smoking in all apartments in the entire building. Recently, we have been smoked out of our apartment by new neighbors across the hall.

A Cave By Any Other Name

The implied warranty of habitability–the landlord’s guarantee that he will provide you a unit with more amenities than a cave or a cardboard box.
