Henderson, KY asked in Contracts, Personal Injury and Landlord - Tenant for Kentucky

Q: Can I break my lease because of intimidation and feeling unsafe?

I wanted to get a very large drain fixed in front of my parking spot because I’ve fallen into it and my car is damaged because of it and I called the city, they came to look at it and the maintenance people kicked them off the property and came to my apartment and yelled at me for trying to get it fixed. Claiming it was private property but the when I called the office they told me to go through the city cause they couldn’t do anything. Recently I was followed to my apartment by an unknown person and there is no lighting in our common area, I’ve tried to call the office and get their notes on the incident for 2 weeks and they haven’t gotten back to me. What should I do?

A: No. Those are not grounds to break your lease.
