What is the name of your state?Nh
After I told my landlord I was withholding the rent for multiple problems with the apartment including leaking roof, stairs to cellar are all broken and some stairs don't even have 6" wide to them, broken windows that have been here since I moved in 2 years ago that he promised he would fix, he never insulated the old laundry chute so cold wind comes up through, and he changed the lock on the back door where we come in and didn't even tell us. He gave me a notice to quit and a demand for rent plus he wrote that I have to remove my belongings in 7 days from the cellar if the stairs are dangerous and everything out of my hall in 7 days, none of which are within the walking area or blocking any exits. He stated the cellar and the hall both of which are only belonging to my apartment are common areas. What are the laws for this?
