Hello, I have a serious problem I need help with. I am a single women In Tampa Fl. I have been renting a house from a man who has given me a lot of problems, and its fairly complicated. I guess he is what you would call a slum lord with nice properties. Is there anyone who could help me if I tell you exactly what he is doing?? I would be very grateful for the help, as I have no one really to turn to. Thanks very much, Lori xxxxx
No there was no written increase of rent. The last written "anything" from him was back in 2010
