I was wondering if anyone has had experience or knows anyone who has asked to break an apartment lease?
I moved into my place here a little over a month and half ago. I live on the bottom floor of a very large apartment complex.
It is a partially furnished and is geared towards undergraduates. Again, I live on the bottom floor, and there are two floors above me.
Right outside my door is a walk way and then a little bit of grass and then a hill that doesn't seem to be owned by the complex.
I have had constant trouble with the people above me throwing many things over their balconies, which land on my area (the cement in front of my window) and the grass right in front of that. I take Arthur out there to potty. While it's a small patch of grass it's still enough to walk around. Of note, this apartment area is in the back of the complex.
I have found the following items in the grass:
1. Potatoes (more than 5)
2. Beer cans (numerous)
3. cigarettes (numerous)
4. Human hair
5. A sock
6. A ummm....how do I say this....ummm, something from the Trojan brand (if you know what I mean.) And I think it was used.
I have discussed this with the property management and I have received the following responses:
1. Trash is a problem
2. Ewww gross (to the trojan)
3. We could fine people, but need to know who exactly. (Which I saw them throw beer cans once. I took this knowledge to the property people, maybe they were fined, or maybe not. Who knows?)
I am very unhappy with this apartment complex and would like to get out of the lease. I don't believe they picked up the Trojan, but I do believe that the it was shredded some with a mower, even though I emailed about it being disposed of. I have had beer on me, which I couldn't tell if that was from kicking the beer can off my cement area or from another can being throw right over my head. The people above me didn't know I was there.
Any suggestions about attempting to break a lease. Would I even have grounds to do something?
Sorry it's so long.
