"I've been living in a apartment for 8 months now, in Metairie LA, 7 of the 8 months I've had to deal with roaches. Can I get out of my lease without having to pay the early move out fee of $1,200.
Probably not. You'll likely lose your deposit and be sued for it because breaking your lease is not the usual legal remedy for roaches. And even if it was, you just don't up and leave without proper notice of the defect and giving the LL the opportunity to cure.
The Louisiana landlord tenant statute is very brief and starts with RS 9:3201 at:
They do have an exterminator, he's been in my apartment about 5 times now and nothing seems to work. This has been such a burden to me and has been taking a toll on me and my pets.
I suggest you find a do-it-yourself pest control store and buy the professional chemicals and a 1 gallon sprayer and do your own spraying.
You'll have a lot more success that way rather than risking a lawsuit and having to defend yourself in court.
