Hello! I am a licensed attorney, admitted to practice in state and federal court. I have a nearly 100% satisfaction rating so all that means is that you can count on me to help today. I'm very sorry to hear about your situation. As a renter myself, I can only imagine what it must be like to be on a list that says that you should not be rented two. Landlords are across your region or going to be very skeptical simply because of what is on the list. My recommendation would be to take action right away if this is fasle.

You may want to consider just writing a cease and desist letter stating that what they are doing is defaming you publicly. Defamation is basically a false and defamatory statement, published to a third party, that causes harm (usually a lessened reputation in the community, lost business opportunity, or other harms as the facts dictate.). in this case, it seems to me that the damage to you is the fact that no one would rent to you as a result Of their actions. Lawyers use letters like these on the regular basis to enforce their client’s rights. There’s a site that I’ve used in the past where you can find a good template for a demand letter (click here). It only costs $10 and it is way cheaper than litigation.

Although I provided an initial answer, it’s important that you are 100% satisfied. If you feel I have done so, please rate me 5 stars and let me know if you have any follow up questions. As a side note, you can also click here in the future to request me individually.

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.
