Ask a landlord-tenant lawyer and get answers ASAP
Hi! My name is Richard & I will be helping you today! It will take me a few minutes to type a response to your question. Thanks for your patience!
Good morning. You really need take no action. The landlord cannot take any action against you without actually filing a petition with the court and you would get a notice of this hearing and would be able to attend that hearing. At that hearing, you would contest these allegations and the landlord's petition would then be dismissed and that would be the end of it. If you want to be proactive, which I might suggest just so it's on the record, I would respond in writing or email to the landlord contesting each and every allegation and let the landlord know that unless the landlord ceases and desists in any further pursuit of this, you will not only contest any action the landlord takes, but also file your own claim against the landlord for defamation.
