We broke our lease for our current rental property due to my health and my son's health. My son never had a severe sleep disorder until we moved in to our current rental 12 months ago. He use to sleep from 7pm to 7am. We are in a new home and not trying to be racist but we have New Zealanders all around us which have turned their garage in to another lounge room with tv's and the works etc. They play music 24/7 with very loud bass. Police have been called but they have never done anything. I have had my next door neighbours friends just walk in to my house. and alot of the time they are all either fighting or smashing something when they are not having parties. My Son's Dr and Childrens Health Nurse have seen my son since he was born and know what his sleep pattern use to be like. They both have said it is the neighbour-hood. We have been away and stayed at family members homes which isn't too far from us and our son has never woken up once and slept through the night.
I lost my job since living at this property due to my always being exhausted all the time due to my son never being about to get any sleep. My Mental Health Nurse ( for my self) has noticed a decline in my health and well being. And she recommeded for our family to move as in the end it will get worse. I gave my real estate agent all the letters that my health nurse, dr and childrens health wrote to them and they dont seem to care. I told them im more then happy to find someone for the property and that im happy to pay for them listing the property online and in the paper. But im not willing to pay rent until they find someone. Im willing to pay for 8 weeks but nothing over that as we wont be able to afford 2 rents plus looking after my children with every day living expenses. There is currently 2 houses for sale in my street and 2 rentals for rent including mine. The other house that is currently for rent has been up for rent for nearly 6 months and we forsure cant afford to pay for that long..
Should i tell the realestate that im willing to pay up 8 weeks as that is a reasonable amount of time to be able to find someone considering i will also be opening the home in my spare time to people that have contacted me?
We would have been happy to stay longer but in the end i have to put my own health and safety aswell as my childrens in front of a lease.
Also we have only 6 Months left on the lease as the real estate locked us in to 18 months lease in the first place!
Any help would be great thanks
