Start Your Complaint to Landlord

Answer a few questions. We'll take care of the rest.


If your landlord does not respond to your complaint in 24-48 hours, you should formally submit another complaint by certified mail. This way, in the worst-case scenario that your landlord is still unresponsive, you can take legal action against him or her. If the problem is severe enough, you may need to move out, or arrange for the repairs yourself (you can deduct the cost of repairs from your rent payment). Constructive eviction is the legal concept that allows you to leave a property that is uninhabitable.

To start resolving problems with your rental property today, use Rocket Lawyer to create your Complaint to Landlord. You can also use Rocket Lawyer to Find a Lawyer for any landlord-tenant disputes.
