I was told by a bldg inspector that my apartment is not up to code. I've been deprived access to the thermostat which controls the heating/cooling system for my apartment that has been converted into two small studios. Once the inspector came to see this & it was known to the landlord and owner, is the landlord responsible for correcting this situation?

Moving me into an equal or better unit? I currently have utilities included in my rent and they said they were moving me into a unit that does not have utilities included and would require deposits that I do not have. Is there any way to be compensated for living in what the county considers substandard?

You can either take their offer to move into the apartment where the utilities aren't provided or you can move to another place entirely and demand your deposit back. They may not give you the deposit, you'd have to sue them for that, but you seem to have a good case if it goes that way as not being able to control the temperature could be argued that the rental is uninhabitable.

I would expect you'd be able to terminate your lease and get your deposit back without penalty, but I don't see why you'd be able to be compensated for "living in a substandard unit". Nobody forced you live there.
