I paid 1st month's rent and security deposit. At move in the house was a mess. What recourse do I have?

There were doors off the hinges with holes in them, exposed outlets, carpets were filthy and stained, rodent feces in the kitchen under the sink.

Have you discussed this with the landlord?
If so....what did he or she say?

Too late now, but you should have done a walk-thru with the landlord before moving in.

At this point, if the landlord won't agree to pay for the repairs - you might have to pay for them and seek reimbursement.

For any legal answers - you need to ask an attorney.

Best wishes.......
