Q: Can my apt manager keep the pool and playground closed,at the same time increase my rent?

The pool has been open a total of apprx. 2 1/2 mo. Since my 4 children and I moved in April 6th 2019. The pool man comes like clockwork every week to maintain the pool.The playground has been taped off since the beginning of the pandemic. There are no plans of reopening. My rent has gone up 3 xs. Shouldn't my rent be reduced if these amenities aren't available?

A: It depends on what your lease says about the amenities. Typically, amenities are not included in the lease and would have no bearing on your rent. You can ask your landlord about this and see what their position is.
