My question involves landlord-tenant law in the State of: VT
My child has rescently been tested and yielded a result of 5 at our doctors office. Any lead level is not okay. The landlord has been disrespectful to us and told us in writing upon moving in that there was no lead paint that he was aware because he purchased it and it was not disclosed. Also he stated he painted over everything 3 or 4 times. He did not annualy give us an EMP (Lead paint disclosure certificate from the EPA). His house is much older than 1977. Is this legally possible to break the lease ? We got an EPA recognized test kit for the house, tested and the tests were positive. We just want to move out , break the lease and get our rent deposit back and go seperate ways to get our son out of the situation and into a new home. How do we legally break the lease?
