My question involves landlord-tenant law in the State of: michigan
I recently rented a house in a not so great neighborhood. I havent even moved in yet and the neighbor, who is a 65 year old woman, is harassing us. She flatly told us not to move in. We returned today to move some items into the house and there was a junk vehicle in our driveway, garbage all over the fromt yard, and a couch that had been thrown over the fence from the neighbors property into our backyard.
I contacted my rental company and they are saying to call the police etc, but im sure they will do nothing, even if they talk to the woman im sure the situation will just escalate to slashes tires or worse.
My rental company hasnt said weather they will let us out of the lease.
My understanding is that harassment/safety concerns is grounds to break a lease.
What are my options? I have told the rental company they can keep my deposit and first months rent and that we just want to leave.
