Dear Customer, I am sorry to learn about your situation. While the issues you have stated are not grounds to sue your landlord, as you do live in HUD housing, you can file a complaint with the US Dept. of Housing to have them investigate this situation and the abusive behavior.

You can file a complaint here: http://portal.hud.gov/hudportal/HUD?src=/complaints_home

You can also try mediating the dispute with your landlord (remember, ultimately it is the landlord that is responsible for the actions of their manager, if the manager needs to be replaced, the landlord should be made aware of their actions). Contact your local bar association and ask for referrals to local landlord/tenant mediators and initiate a mediation session with the landlord.
