My landlord is crazy, she has shown up at my home and verbally attacked me. calling me a #@!&$ and worse in front of my children over repairs I need done. What can I do about this?

I signed a lease on Sept. 4th the landlord asked for a checklist of property. I asked for 3 repairs out of the long list. Electical outlets to be fixed, insects treated, and stairwell banister secured. She has come to my home several times demanding money in cash and calling me names in a rant like I have never seen before. Can I void the lease and get my money back?

Wow... She almost sounds like the lady we have been buying our house from... lol... Your landlord does not have to fix anything that doesn't affect the livability of the home. But, if you are already having this kind of issues with her this soon after leasing the place, I can surely pretty much guarantee you that it will only get worse... I so much feel for you...

electrical problems are a hazard and indeed affect the livability of a home, you should get in touch with the board of health to find out what exactly they require her to fix. I'm sure your landlord will calm down when she finds out the board of health has visited!

Follow the above link and read this document thoroughly. youa re legally protected from this type of abuse. Your landlord is WAY out of line & and sort of threats can be grounds for you to be released from your lease. You may also be entitled to be refunded for the time paid for as well as any damage or security deposit you made. There is also. It is specifically TENNESSEE CODE ANNOTATED
TITLE 66 PROPERTY CHAPTER 28 UNIFORM RESIDENTIAL LANDLORD AND TENANT ACT. I would find another place and start packing. No one has to endure such behavior! I would be livid! Know your rights & if she even attempts to take you to court, which will cost her hundreds, she would likely be found liable herself. Just be sure to document everything really well! And don't threaten her or punch her in the nose! lol Hope this helps!
