Anniston, AL asked in Landlord - Tenant for Alabama

Q: Can I move without giving a notice?

I have been trying for two years to get my landlord to fix my leaky roof (among other serious issues). She finally hired some *cheap* people to replace it. One of the guys fell through the roof and now there is a GIANT hole in our ceiling. Her response was very unconcerned and just said, "well it's an old roof and it was an accident." I have no idea when or if she plans on fixing the hole on the inside of the house. I want to move and get away from this terrible landlord.

A: No you must give notice to vacate. But take lots of pictures and put everything in writing. Good luck.
