I'm in Los Angeles. I moved into this building 3 months ago with a lease. It turned out to be very noisy with the neighbor's voices, door slamming, foot steps, etc. I could complain it to the landlord but the problem seems to be the building being a cheap quality with thin walls and ceilings. Is there any law that protects me if I break the lease because I'm not happy with the neighbors and the quality of the apartment building?
In the future, when I rent an apartment, is there any law that entitles me to spend some time in the apartment before signing a lease? How about a cool-off period? Or being entitled to month-to-month instead of a lease? It seems that renting an apartment should be treated the same as buying something, that you can return it, or like buying a car, you can test drive it to make sure you like it. I would appreciate some advise.
