Have Legal Questions? Ask a Lawyer Now.
well not me evict myself rather have my mother (owner landlord of me with lease have been living here 10 years and person just moved in on april 15, 2013). and here is what the person whom i have let rent a room from me has written as action she is referring :
I did not have a personal issue with CC or any of the residents however, this talk of eviction is ridiculous and will only lead to prolonged court visits and extreme financial burden on the owners. I do have an issue now because the sneaky, manipulative and underhanded behavior has taken its toll. I have waited patiently for resolve only to be ignored by CC. This seems to be the case: I am legally considered a resident. A repeatedly requested document has not been presented. In order to remove a resident, there has to be a cause...that in which proof of payment has been made and notarized, court filings, mailings, a hearing, mediation then a return of property. Therefore, we are potentially looking at at a 3-4 month period of non-payment which would end in September, only one month prior to our agreed move-out date. Ultimately resulting in a cross suit because I gave up my apt and living situation only to be duped by the consequential Landlord.
The above is part of what was sent in response to the 3 day pay or quit
so handing it to her is ok? she keeps saying i need to mail it to her? which she said will prove she is a resident etc. also the non payment is not only issue - she also tried splicing the building 's cable whic=h failed and in result had cable company at my door reporting entire building cable out of service - they came in and checked the wires and sure enough they said the wiring was tampered with... should this be included as reason for evicting, or not needed. Because if yes can have cable company write a follow up report regarding incident and have a witness who saw her do this and verbally told him about her actions after cable company left.
In the interim do i need to provide her with a mail box key, and how can i assure she will return the building main door key which opens all entries of the condo building. Need to get back or i could be financially responsible?
