We have been dealing with rats, cockroaches, and other critters since the day we moved into our unit 1.5 years ago. Our landlord put in writing that she would take care of this issue when we moved in....and has not. Now it is time to pay the rent again. We are planning on moving out of here within the next few weeks. Don't we have some tenant rights to NOT pay her the remaining portion owed?! Please help!

Don't pay your rent. Before rent day call the police and tell then you need to speak to the sheriff concerning this matter. Only the courts can evict you and in some instances the eviction process can take as much as 3 months.

Call the health department. If you don't pay and get evicted you will have a hard time renting. I don't think that is the way to go. Are you on a lease or month to month?
