You state you have been in this home for at least the last 7 month period. If you have a 12 month lease, then your term may be over soon. I would start to search for a new place to live now so you will have a place to go when your lease expires. Be sure to give your landlord plenty of notice of your intent to move. If you are staying then you may need to discuss your issues with a real estate attorney who can help you. We are not attorney's and can't give legal advice.
All the best,
