I need an attorney to help me. My husband and I were evicted

Customer Question

I need an attorney to help me. My husband and I were evicted from our home on Sept. 15th. When we moved into this house we were under the impression that we were going to buy the house. The owner told us to fix the house up anyway we wanted. Then after he saw all the work we had done on the place he decided he didnt want to sell the place. Then on August the 26th my husband had a massive heart attack and we only had 500.00 of the 850 for the rent. The landlord told me that he couldnt accepr the 500.00. So we found another place to liv. I akso got very sick in July and had to go to the hospital with breathing problems dur to black mold in the house. I called the landlord and told him there was black mold in the house and he said "No there isnt.".So I looked up my renters rights on the internet and found out a lot of things I didnt know. I need an attorney to help me counter sue this man. Can you help me please.

Hello, my name is ***** ***** I will try to help you. Please remember I just report or interpret the law, so the outcome may not be what you hoped for.

No one on this site can represent you. We only provide information. You would want a landlord tenant attorney. The existence of mold in the house would be a basis for not paying rent or at least reducing the rent during the period the landlord took care of the mold remediation. You can locate a landlord-tenant attorney by going to or They list attorneys by specialty and geographic area. You would want to speak to two or three about your situation to get a feel for how they would approach it. Select the one with which you feel comfortable.
