Breaking your lease due to Domestic Violence
What is the name of your state (Nevada)? Nevada
My sister is a recent victim to Domestic Violence and just this past Sunday night the assailant had entered here place of residence with another gentlemen and stole all of her furniture. Also the maintenance men viewed the two men entering her home and did nothing. I am aware of other state laws from searching on the internet, but not to keen on Nevada. She is trying to get out her lease and move here to Texas for her safety. She contacted her rental office, provided them proof from the District Attorneys Office and they told her that was not a good enough reason to break her lease.
My question is is there some law stating that she can break her lease due to Domestic Violence? I thought a landlord had to provide a safe home under the Safe Home Act.What is the name of your state (only U.S. law)?
