I have been renting a duplex for the last 4 years. The first two years of living there the plumbing was horrible, heater did not work and the electrical connections were (still not up to code). I had to open a Code Enforcement Case (back in 2017) because the the landlord (slum lord) would make remarks like "If you don't like it give me your 30 day notice" whenever I complained about anything. Some of the repairs were taken care of during Code Enforcement but electrical still a safety hazard because of the wiring. A couple of weeks ago I asked him to fix an issue with the plumbing and his response was " now your just nit picking, why don't you just give me your 30 day notice" a week later I got a 60 day notice in mail to quit. I realize that by renting month to month we are at risk tenants but do I have any options at this point? Mind you I have always paid my rent even when I was living in those conditions.

What is the name of your state?

Do you believe your landlord retaliated against you for reporting code violations - and that is the reason you are wondering if the 60 day notice was legal?
