My question involves landlord-tenant law in the State of: California
Long story short my landlord doesn't want to make some repairs to water damage by the legal route I.e.: unlicensed contractors handling asbestos abatement without an asbestos licensed contractor and without the proper protocol for asbestos abatement. She is going to "make repairs" but I am concerned for my kids and my overall safety and health with them not being handled properly. Also the place is a slum.
During the time I discussed repairs with her and my concern for proper handling, she gave me an unsolicited offer to end the lease without penalty and with a 30 day notice. I've been considering her offer and asked today if it was still on the table, could I please have it in writing. Now she comes back with only 14 days for her offer. I'm concerned with finding another place in that amount of time and also how legal that is considering everything seems to relate to 30 or 60 days.
Can you guys please help clarify what my rights are according to the law. Thanks. I'm not trying to press the issue to hard since she is offering to terminate without penalty.
