Yes, you can. Tenants in Indiana are required to pay regardless of whether or not the landlord is fulfilling obligations. What you can do, however, is sue the landlord for a breach of the lease agreement, and ask the court to award you back rent.
They were supposed to send me paperwork by email however they never did they took the time to meet my dog so they knew I was staying there as well as it had a pet but the money for my deposit on the dog and for adding me to the lease just sat untouched in the account my roommate and I are not...

If you have proof that they agreed to add you to the lease (e.g. e-mails stating this, or something along those lines) you may be able to prove in court that you had an agreement and should be able to stay.
If she was your girlfriend (and not your wife), then in theory she has no right to stay there beyond your permission, and she must leave when you notify her. However, in practice, a court may find that because she has lived there for a long time and established a residence, she may be under a...Read more »
My kids left door open and dog has gotten loose multiple times. When landlord confronted my husband he cussed them out. They also said we play music too loud even though the sheriff said it wasnt too loud when he was called
This would largely depend on what is stated in your lease. It is possible that your lease could contain "nuisance" provisions, which would prohibit things like letting pets out, playing loud music, disturbing neighbors, etc. If so then it is possible your landlord could try to evict on...Read more »
This is confusing. A tenant pays rent to a landlord. If you are the tenant, the first question is whether you have a lease? If no lease, what proof do you have that a.) you paid $657 and b.) there was an agreement that this covered 6 months of rent. I am not aware of any place that someone can...Read more »

My tenant died in the middle of a 12 month lease. I went to clean up the apartment and his daughter was there and stated that she’s taking over her father’s lease and she doesn’t have to leave. She went on to say that I can’t evict her due to the COVID-19 pandemic and because there’s an... Read more »

You should do everything possible to work out a temporary arrangement with the current landlord. If that is not possible and you are forced to stay in the unit, that is known as "holding over," and the landlord will have to initiate eviction proceedings in order to have you removed.
i have reasons to believe that i was sold an apartment with bedbugs. i was told by pest control (witch i payed for) that when you see black spots in the corner of the ceiling you might have bed bugs. go back a year when i got the apartment ive taken and sent pictures of black spots before i moved...

A landlord has an obligation to provide you, as the tenant, with a safe, clean, habitable home. If they fail to do that, you can bring an action against them to terminate the lease and seek damages. Whether or not you can build a case from the facts you've given is a separate issue, and it is...Read more »

Hello. I have a rental property and have tenants that’s been living there for almost 3 years. Every year I have to call them several times and contact 5 different people to get them to send over the new lease agreement. Every other month I’m getting letters from waste management threatening to... Read more »
If your tenant is on a month-to-month lease then yes, you can terminate that lease by sending them a 30-day notice of termination. I would recommend sending it to them certified mail so that you have proof of acceptance. Once the 30 day period has passed their lease is terminated. However, you...Read more »
charged a penalty of $1000/month for us living here. Sounds like they have an issue with the mortgage company (maybe they weren’t allowed to rent the property) and haven’t offered anything more than return our deposit the day we vacate. We were supposed to be gone by today and have been unable... Read more »
In Indiana, your landlord cannot remove you from the property without a court order in the form of an eviction. It sounds like your landlord might not actually be the owner of the property, but either a tenant themselves who is subleasing this property to you or they may not have been authorized to...Read more »
The landlord sent a letter to me stating she was terminating the lease and that this letter served as her 30 day notice. I objected but she said she had the right to terminate the lease with the 30 day notice. I did tell her I would need some kind of compensation. She said no to that.
There are a very narrow set of circumstances where a landlord could unilaterally terminate the lease, usually owing to destruction of the property due to a natural disaster or fire. If you had a six month lease though, then that is how long the landlord is liable to rent the property to you: six...Read more »
If your lease agreement does not allow for sub-tenants and the tenants are in violation of your lease agreement you can evict them for being in breach of the lease. It would be best to notify them first in writing that they are violating the terms of the lease agreement and give them their 10 day...Read more »
