Ask a Landlord-Tenant Question, Get an Answer ASAP!
What I am asking is what to do if I cannot get a good ex landlord rental reference, though I have been a good tenant.
I have been worried of being evicted and am consulting a lawyer.
I want you advice as to how to over come the reference letter problem.
Thank you for your clarification.I would think that based on the way that they have treated you that it has perhaps been retaliatory and that you might negotiate with them---you will agree to leave and not to sue them for Harassment and retaliation of they agree to give you a good reference in writing and agree that if ever contacted that they will not malign you as a tenant.The further in time you move from the actual time that they harassed and retaliated against you, the more difficult it will become to reach an agreement with them to classify you as a good tenant. So that needs to be done as soon as possible.If you choose to instead try to stay there, you will almost certainly lose the leverage you have to demand a good reference letter and if they eventually are able to get you out, or you voluntarily leave, you can expect that they will take it out on you and refuse to provide a reference that will assist you in getting another rental in the area.You may reply back to me using the Reply link and I will be happy to continue to assist you until I am able to address your concerns, to your satisfaction.Kindly, remember to rate my service to you.
