Thank you for your question. I look forward to working with you to provide you the information you are seeking for educational purposes only. Please feel free to ignore any phone service request, the expert does not send those unless asked by customer and they are sent by the site automatically.

You need to call Adult Protection Services first and foremost http://www.michigan.gov/mdhhs/0,5885,7-339-73971_7119_50647---,00.html and complain about abuse of the disabled, since her conduct coming into your premises that you lease without an invitation is a breach of lease and also abusing you because you cannot defend yourself.

Also, you can file a complaint with MI Fair Housing as well: http://www.michigan.gov/mshda/0,4641,7-141-5515_53192---,00.html

Neither of those cost you anything and provide assistance to the disabled in your situation.

If you cannot get them to resolve the issues, then you need to file a lawsuit by going to your local legal aid office (or Adult Protection can assist in directing you to legal aid) and suing the landlord for breach of the lease.

Please do not forget to leave positive feedback by clicking on the 5 stars at the top of your page, as the experts are not employees of the site and get no credit for spending time with customers unless they leave positive feedback. Thank you.

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.

TonyApopka, FL

Not only did he answer my Michigan divorce question but was also able to help me out with it, too. I have since won my legal case on this matter and thank you so much for it.
