No one likes to admit it, but roaches are a common thing and part of living in an apartment. Did you sign a lease or are you month to month? Check your lease.

Give LL a letter sent certified, return receipt or Fed Ex (I trust Fed Ex more, signature upon receipt) and if after 10 days there's no fix to the situation, then you could possibly claim a breach of contract on the LL's part and use this to get out of your lease. You can give written 30 day notice before leaving for good after that.

: I just rented an apartment outside the city and it was delivered in an uninhabitable form. In other words, it had roaches. Do I have a right to vacate my lease on the grounds that the apartment was not delivered to me in a habitable form? To be honest, I would prefer to get out rather than deal with the LL trying to exterminate.
