Answer by  technogeek (6640)

If the property is suddenly deemed unlivable by the Department of Housing, then you could get out of your lease.

Well there are a lot of reasons when a tenant is a allowed to break their lease with their landlord. One reason is when the tenant has any problems with rodents and the landlord refuses to take care of the problem, then they are entitled to break their least agreement.

1. The residence is physically dangerous. For example, gas leaks and lack of heat in the winter that create a physical danger to the occupants. 2. The residence is not habitable. If it is flooded, burned down, or has huge holes in the roof as to no longer provide shelter.

One reason could be if the landlord doesn't provide a safe living environment for the tenant. For example, if there is no heat in the house and the landlord failed to provide this after you spoke with him, this is valid. Or if the landlord refused to negotiate your rent payments after you experienced a financial setback, that's another reason.

Read your lease carefully and see if the landlord is violating terms. Also, if the landlord is breaking any laws or the house is not safe, you can get out.
