Hi Roger. I am inexperienced with real estate law. Lease appears to be between landlord and them. I had lease which expired in the summer and am month-to-month. Their lease actually has no dates whatsoever. I am hoping to move as soon as my landlord has newly-constructed home inspected. I want to keep things low-key with landlord because I want to sign another lease.However, as a veteran with PTSD, I cannot tolerate the bullying. They obviously want to provoke me.
Thank you. I don't think landlord will do that. She apparently offered them a lease once I move. She does not appear to know anything landlord-tenant law. She is a foreigner who works hard and has been building homes with her family and also runs a full-time business. I don't want her to think I'm somehow responsible and want to be sure she gives me a new lease. I am disappointed to hear that I may have no legal recourse. I would think that it is not legal to bully someone. I know they are responsible for their dogs and the dog would be put down if there was another attack. I have been trying to hang in until the new property is ready and it is becoming very difficult.
Thank you for your advice. I am planning to board my cats and move out temporarily and sue them later on. I cannot put my pets at further risk.
