I am renting a trailer on a private lot, it was a total disaster and took me a year to clean the yard and trailer up. I am on Social Security and can’t afford to just pick up and move. I should not have to I have never been late paying my rent and have been here for a year and a half.
The roof has major leaks and so far nothing has been fixed he says next year–its here 2013. I don’t want to start a war with this man I just want a place thats not mold infested which this is already because he won’t fix the roof. The only reason I’m here is because I have dogs and he knew this an agreed to this when I got here from Florida. I’m clean and have only improved his property.
Now he is movine junk items on my property that I’m renting, his yard is literally a junk yard and I can’t live like that and should not have to, I pay for this trailer and the lot it sits on, I maintain it, mow it.
In the back of my lot is two big old dump trucks full of garbage rotted garbage and junk and I have seen rats coming and going out of it.
I’ve asked him to remove them from my yard and he just ignores me, I don’t want to get thrown out either. What are my rights here I just want to live in peace and have a clean yard not full of the landlords junk. He snuck over here at 5 am this morning and snuck in my yard and dropped off a roof of a gazeebo.
Whats next, please advise me of my rights I just want to be left in peace and like i said my issue is not about not paying my rent its about this man using my yard as a dump off site.
I have no steps to go out the back door of this trailer and the porch on the front is all rotten and I’m scared I’m going to fall through them at some point. I don’t have the money to rebuild this mans property when I brought up the roof in writing a few times it got back to me he was going to evict me. This is just wrong, I should have some protection of being evicted because this landlord is a slum lord. I should not be made to move but he should be made to fix this dump. He knows I’m clean and I take care of the place. I even put a $700.00 fence up in the front yard so my dogs could have some freedom. I have around $1,500.00 into this place and even had to buy a new fridge that cost me $700.00 this is plus the 1500.00 . I just want to live in peace and not have to deal with all this.

No Responses to “Landlord Rules”
My land lord requires that if you want to move something out of the apartment you book a freight elevator. I sold a sofa and tried to book the elevator. My landlord has refused to grant permission unless I come up with a notarized letter saying I am will be responsible for the rent for the remainder of the lease. Now I have never once failed to pay my rent or even paid it late! And all I am disposing of is a couch. My landlord rules seem very unfair. Is this legal, can a landlord prevent you from getting rid of something you own or require you to get a legal note before you can do it? This sounds utterly ridiculous to me.

Actually what is happening here is very common for landlords that have failed to get tenants to sign all paperwork. Most likely when you signed the lease agreement the landlord or lease agent forgot to have you sign a specific addedum, such as the form mentioned in your blog question.

Man! That landlord of your sounds like a weasel. I’d file a complaint with the RPA just to prove a point. I had a landlord like this that was extremely hostile towards me. At first I was scared to file a formal landlord complaint, but then after I did– its like I’m renter from a completely different guy. He is very nice and we have an understanding with each other.

I’d just take the thing down the non-freight elevator. Your landlord is not working with him, so take it down the regular elevator. What a slumlord!
