Ask a Lawyer and Get Answers to Your Legal Questions
Hello, Thanks for choosing Justanswer.com! I look forward to helping you with legal information today.
Do you have a security deposit that you placed with him?
Okay, thank you. There is a way you can take him to court to ask for the portion of the electric bill back after the trailer come onto the property. There may also be a way to get money back for electricity used for the business he was operating, especially since you did not know about it. The judge will probably not give you any money for the electric heaters that both of you were using. You are probably going to have to sue him anyway because I am sure he is just going to keep anything you didn't pay him out of your deposit. I would wait until you're out of there to sue.
I would go ahead and report the trailer. You can't threaten him with doing it in order to obtain something of value--that is blackmail and extortion. Please just let me know if you have any more questions. If not, please don't forget to click on the green accept button in the answer box so that I can receive credit for helping you.

Happy to keep helping you. Yes, you would report it to code enforcement or the planning and zoning board in your town. Also, as far as the harassment, I would just call the cops if you are feeling threatened. You can also go down to your local court house and file for a restraining order.
