Landlords must keep the place fit to live in and in good repair. If something in your apartment needs to be fixed, tell your landlord in writing.
- Landlords must keep the areas everyone uses clean and safe.
- Landlords cannot treat you differently because of your race, color, religion, national origin, sex, disability, or because you have children.
- Landlords can never change the locks, set your things out, or shut off the water, lights, or gas to make you move out, even if you are behind on rent or broke the lease. Your landlord has to get a Court’s permission before they can make you move out.
