I am sorry to hear this. Your landlord must pay you back the $150 and must pay you if you are paying for the motel and should pay for some of the food and return some of the rent.And he will have insurance to cover this and so there is no excuse.I suggest you go into your local legal aid clinic and ask for some help. You can get help for free because you are on disability benefits.
