If The Landlord Won't Make Repairs And I Want To Move, What Should I Do?

Give your landlord written notice of the problems and warn him if the problems are not repaired in 14 days or within a reasonable time, you will move. If the landlord still does not repair, you can move and will no longer owe him any further rent. He is still required to return your security deposit if there are no reasons to hold it.
