All the best,

Brock

The repair clause is pretty common in our area but usually comes with a cap/deductible which is normally $100. If anything needs replacement that should be the Landlord's cost (per our standard lease agreement), but anything the two parties mutually agree to just needs to be put in writing. ... more

My heart breaks for you and I wish I had a solution. However, I would think that you could start with a housing assistance program. Or perhaps there is some fabulous Landlord that will read this and bless you with a better place to live. Best of luck. ... more
