Q: I live in a rental property and my landlord has ignored my requests to fix dangerous problems on the property. How can I fight to protect myself?
A: You can fight in a number of ways. In Ohio, we have a Landlord Tenant Act, which provides that the landlord is to keep all rental property in repair and free from nuisance. If the landlord doesn’t keep common areas in repair, he or she is liable in damages for that.
