There are a couple options available to you, and yes once the building inspector deems your house “unsafe” you can take the proper steps (legally) to withhold rent. But first thing’s first, find that copy of your lease agreement, go through it section-by-section to try to understand the rights/terms you agreed to in the contract, and use that. It’s more powerful than an home inspection notice, cheaper and any legal proceedings will base their judgements on the lease agreement anyway.
If you would like to go through it with somebody please feel free to contact me,
Best of luck!
