: Recently the oil heater in my building had a "puffback" which released a lot of dust into the atmosphere of the apartment. My girlfriend and I, who live together in the apartment, have been experiencing respiratory problems which we think were been caused by the malfunctioning heater, even before the "puffback" occurred. Now suddenly my girlfriend has been diagnosed with asthma and doctors say it was probably caused by conditions in the apartment. However, from a legal point of view, can I simply break the lease on doctors' advice? Can I say that these conditions are dangerous to our health even though the heat furnace has been repaired? What kind of proof is required?
Get the doctor to put in writing that the after effects of the event is causing new respiratory problems.
