Over the time since my move in I have multiple issues with my apartment.

1. A lot of fixes were verbally promised to me before move in that never happened (My fault for not getting it in writing)

2. I don't have all the keys for my apartment. I have 2 locks on my front door, a regular lock and a deadbolt and I have never received the deadbolt key. Even after months of multiple verbal and written requests.

3. Maintenance is non existent. I was without hot water for 5 days in September. But as soon as they got a higher bill the sent a plumber that day without notice, stating an emergency.

Now I have given my notice to move as soon as my lease is up and they are showing prospective people through the apartment. Not concerned about that at all but it is written in the lease that I require 24 hours notice and I received 23 hours notice, now it is a petty thing but I am sick of there ways.

Also I am nigh on convinced they don't have a key for the deadbolt (otherwise why wouldn't they give me copy?). I will be home during the scheduled showing time but probably asleep. Am I within my rights to not answer the door if the landlord can't enter due to not having the key?

Is there any actions I can take against my landlord, or more specifically the Managment company?

With proper notice, you are required to allow the landlord to enter. If you lock him out, he is within his legal rights to call a locksmith and bill you for the service.


What type of "action" are you talking about?

They are not locks I put on the house though. Shouldn't they have keys to all locks? Shouldn't I have keys also?

I am thinking about going to the local borough or something to see if it is okay to withhold keys. Also as I mentioned they didn't give proper notice as per our lease agreement.
