If a person is frightened of one of their roommates, can a lease in the state of Michigan be broken or voided in some way to avoid penalization?
The current rule in the lease is that a 45 day notice of move out must be made and two months rent provided. The office states that even if a single person on a lease leaves, and no longer lives at the residence, they are still required to pay rent on said unit.
The situation is that The Leaver found a nice, inexpensive place and asked The Roommate and the The roommates Boyfriend if they would still like to break the lease and go their separate ways. Both parties agreed to leave by the end of the month (less than 25 days away).
After finding out the total cost to break the lease (around $2500) The Boyfriend has a mental blowup and said he was going to kick the ass of The Leaver as well as kill The Leaver. The Boyfriend owns a gun and is known to have an irrational, violent, temper.
Once confronted as having said this, The Boyfriend responded as having been joking about what had been said. The Leaver did not take the death threat well and is in the process of moving her stuff out.
The Leaver contacted the office to let them know she was, in fact, leaving and they told her even though she was not or could not live in the apartment that she was still contracted to pay the rent. AND if the other parties left the unit she would be liable for any fees if the full rent was not paid on time.
Now, the main question. If The Leaver is too afraid for her personal safety to live or even to enter her own unit due to the words and actions of a roommate is she allowed to be released from the rental agreement without substantial fees?

Safety is a critical aspect to any fluid power system, not just from the basic level of keeping components plumbed properly, but also in overall levels of machine safeguarding. It is critical to evaluate the entire system, including the electrical portion, to minimize exposure to unnecessary risk. Systems are rated based on the weakest link in the control chain. Several standards define the control system as including not only input, sensing, and interlock devices but also output devices such as pneumatic and hydraulic valves. The function of a fluid control valve mimics that of an electrical-control relay and, therefore, is subject to the same rules for classifying safety integrity. Providing control reliability with fluid power is not quite the same as with electrical controls, however. For instance, plain redundancy in a safety circuit requires the equivalent function of four valve elements, not just two. Two of the four valve elements handle the inlet function while the other two elements handle the stop function. Many self-designed systems risk having hidden, potential flaws, which can lead to unsafe conditions because they are unseen, unexpected and, therefore, excluded from design and safety reviews. The use of double valves remained relatively unheard of for many years except in a few select industries, such as stamping presses, which first initiated control reliability requirements. Double valves provide dual internal functions (for redundancy) so that an …
A recent incident in New York with inflatables going airborne sparked some questions about inflatable safety and what measures can be done to increases awareness of such bounce houses. Patrick Healy of NBC Los Angeles visited Sam Bagumyan at Magic Jump Inc. to talk about bounce house safety and what can be done to avoid such incidents. Bagumyan talks about bounce house safety measures taken by Magic Jump Inc. and what consumers can do to help avoid such incidents. Bagumyan recommends operators to read the owners manuals provided by all inflatables manufactured by Magic Jump and for consumers to follow the safety rules that are located near the entrance of every inflatable ride. Bagumyan also recommends that more outside oversight and regulation for the inflatable rental industry can be beneficial to all parties, and is seeing to it to urge legislators and state officials to take initiative.

How are amusement park rides tested for safety? And is it true some are held together by only a few bolts?
I’ve always liked Amusement park rides like the Orbiter and Extasy and so on. But I always wondered how they were tested for safety. I also overheard some people talking at my state fair about how some rides are only held together by just a few bolts. Is anyone else ever scared of going on one because of the fact it can just fall apart? Just wondering and what are your opinions…
