    Need to get out of my current lease. What's the deal with breaking a lease in Edgewater? My place is a dump and my landlord is more like a slumlord. Any tips or tricks for getting out of my current lease.

      I too have had to break a lease before for the same reason. I think the best thing to do is tell your landlord that you need him to fix the issues or you will have to report him. In many cases your apartment might not be safe. Tell your landlord that you want to have the fire department to conduct a safety inspection. I can assure you that your landlord would not want this, and will allow you to leave.
