My question involves landlord-tenant law in the State of: Iowa
So I have a female staying with me. She is middle-aged, homeless, with mild to major disabling conditions, such as major depression, Borderline personality-non violent except during her divorce with her ex... She was high on pot and alcohol. She also has a heart murmurs condition. She got charged with pot possession domestic abuse, in the last 2 years. Also 3 evictions, 1 as recently as 5 years ago. Also other charges in past all misdemeanors.
She is only working part-time at a $9.00 hr job about 12 hours weekly. I am violating my lease with federal public housing apartment rental. by letting her stay with me until she gets enough money to move out on her own with a good enough job. The one public shelter is full of about 15 sex offenders, drug addicts, and alcohol abusers and untreated mentally ill. She has been raped twice in the past and does not want to go there. They are overcrowded also.
Are there grounds for a legal argument that I am following The Good Samartin Principle of trying to save someone's life Housing someone homeless and there should not be a judgment against me for this due to the homelessness epidemic? I am breaking my lease with public housing apartment rental. Live in US,, IA
