Someone suggested to me that some states have a "Quiet Enjoyment" clause in all apartment leases. Does anyone know if New Mexico is such a state? I don't have a copy of my lease anymore, and beings its 8pm I thought maybe someone out there knew the answer and could stop me from tossing and turning until I can get a new copy and see for myself.
Apparently, the clause allows one to break their lease if they are not being given the right to "quiet and enjoyment" of their apartment living.
No website I found was of any help at all.
Thanks! And cheers to quiet and enjoyment. Or...lack-there-of!

This might be a help:
Landlord & Tenant Hotline

New Mexico Tenant Landlord Law

These people work in the UNM area:
The Source for Renter's Rights

The first step would be to alert the landlord of the issue -- they need notification if you have not already done so.
