what is the legal term to say when the landlord management knows very well that the rents are paid by the fact that I live in my apartment for 20 years, and even though I pay from 30 to 60 days late it is always paid....BUT they keep giving me 3 day notices and making me go to civil court, about 7 times already to make a stipulation to pay the rent, and i always pay it. It is beginning to feel like harrassment,do I have a case against them and what is the legal term to say in court that they know something is true but behave and take legal actions as if they do to not know?
great, do you understand my question, I have to be in court tomorrow AGAIN, to pay late rent, and I always pay it but they keep making it legal.
YES ! thank you! Is there anything else I should know?
Like How to I say this to the judge, do I say , I would like to make a "motion"? what is the phrase?
I have to be my own lawyer
and I am not guilty , even tho my rent is always paid, it is just late, correct?
They have 4 civil judgements against me, and shot my credit report
THANK YOU SO MUCH , AWESOME!!!
so what if they still say it is illegal to be late paying?
and they want to charge me $3500 in legal fees
This time they returned my checks because it was not the full rent, but when I go to court tomorrow I have a certified check for May rent, and I do not have June yet, but I will together with July by end of the month...can I still say all of what you said?
yes, but the payment will be paid, and they know that, I am just late....so here we are
so if I do not have all the rent tomorrow in court I can be asked to move out, after 20 years?
ok thanks....so then I should not say "fraud on the court"?
This was Very informative and thank you very much , it is most helpful. I give you 4 stars!!!!
got it, thanks.
ok, they do not want me to be late anymore and that is why they made it legal....thanks ...you were incredibly helpful. :)
