Damage in my home floor and wondered if I can break the lease?
Our kitchen floor has been destroyed for about 30 days now, because of a flood from the snow on the roof. The landlord has been notified twice but has not fixed it yet and never checked for mold. The floor is swollen and there are cracked loose tiles everywhere. Can we hold back rent or break the lease?

Yes, you are not held to a lease if according to the law it is unsafe to occupy. Just get it documented with the Health Dept. or Fire Dept. back it up with photo's, no court will hold you to that lease. I once got out of a lease because the noise in my building was so excessive that I couldn't get a good nights sleep... More

Yes you can, If you feel that the home you are currently living is damaged and your landlord is not repairing it then you can send him/her notice to repair, or otherwise move to other home.
