What to do if owner doesnt clean apartment before moving in?
I live in Jersey. I had a look at apartment around 15 days before I moved in and it was absolutely not cleaned. Owner promised me she will clean it before handover. So I signed a one year lease and made the necessary payments. But when I moved in with my luggage it was just cleaned. Floor was dirty (infact its very old), apartment had roaches, closets were absolutely dirty. Still floor (wooden) has dark spots on several places. Now its almost 6 months I am living with that. I keep everything clean as much as possible. Infact I spend $300 when I moved in. But because of old and rashes on floor, it never looks clean.
I kept complaining my owner. I pay my rent on time (Infact I have to mail her on time). How to deal this situation? I am new in this country, is there anything like consumer rights? I am really frustated by owner, I told I would like to vacate but she says you went get your security back.
