If I am being denied access to amenities I have under my lease, what can I do to rectify this situation?

When I signed my lease we had access to a resort because my Landlord said and advertised that we had access to the resort’s amenities. Now the HOA has come up with new regulations that you have to have a wrist band to use their amenities. In my lease I have to abide by the HOA rules even though our apartment complex is not under HOA, I found out. What are my right’s and how I can rectify this situation?

I would have a talk with your landlord with respect to the representations he made about the unit you rented having amenities which the unit does not. In essence you are not getting what you thought you were getting when you entered into the lease.

As a result the landlord should make some downward adjustments with respect to the monthly rent that you are paying if he or she cannot make good on the representations that you get use of the amentities at the resort by simply being a tenant of the unit you are renting.
