Hi, my name is Nic McGrue from Polymath Legal located in Los Angeles, California. Today, I'm going to tell you how to deal with a landlord that won't enforce your lease. The first thing you should do if you have a landlord that won't enforce your lease is simply talk with them. Most problems can be resolved simply by using communication. If talking with your landlord doesn't work, you should try writing them a letter. In your letter, include your name, your unit number and specific instances of the problems that you're having with your landlord and tell the landlord what you'd like them to do about those problems. If writing a letter hasn't compelled your landlord to enforce the lease, or talking with them hasn't compelled them to enforce the lease, at this point you may need to seek legal advice. Different jurisdictions have different remedies that are available to you and an attorney will be able to advise you on your specific situation. Once again, my name is Nic and this is how to deal with a landlord that won't enforce your lease.
