Is my landlord required to replace my front door?

Asked by michelletanner (4points) November 1st, 2010

I’m living on the top floor of a house in a small town. The woman we’re renting from seems to act like we’re all old friends and she frustrates the crap out of me. That aside, our front door has a giant panel of plexiglass in it that can be popped out in a second and anyone could get in. My mother actually came over and knocked on the door and it fell out. She went and yelled at our landlord and told her she needs to replace it and her response was asking if there was a law saying she had to.

So that’s why I’m here. Is there a law where I could show her concrete evidence that yes, she does have to replace it, or am I just stuck with this? I’m in Ohio, by the way.

On top of that, she never replaced the storm door or blinds, which she said she would before we moved in, and there isn’t one fire alarm in this place. It’s frustrating because we can’t afford to fix all this for her and we have a baby on the way.
Sorry this is so long! Thank you for reading.
