Customer Question
can i get a restraining...
can i get a restraining order against my landlords for creating a hostile living environment by putting pad locks on the side door, u-locks on the refrigerator,intercepting my mail and not giving it to me,stealing money out of my room and from my guess,telling my visitors im not home,making threats about burning down the house,threatening me with with violence and lies to get me to leave,making false statements to the authorizes. Recently my room caught on fire and the owner refused to call the fire department. There are no smoke detectors anywhere on the property or in the house. Only I suffered property damage and they will not provide me with the home owners insurance information. they are using strong arm tactics to remove me from the property.They have made no attempt to make repairs to my room even after many offers to replace the windows and paint at no cost to them. The list continues on but my main concern is my safety until I can acquire and secure another place to live. They have enlisted others to assist them in their efforts to terrorize,harass and threaten me to leave.

Anne was extremely helpful. Her information put me in the right direction for action that kept me legal, possible saving me a ton of money in the future. Thank you again, Anne!!

ElaineAtlanta, GA

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.

Wonderful service, prompt, efficient, and accurate. Couldn't have asked for more. I cannot thank you enough for your help.
