Q: We sent a notice to our landlord stating that we needed certain things repaired by him, now he is trying to evict
We go to court Thursday, I have documentation, photos of huge leak in cellar, all gutters torn off of house caused by storms and new carpet put in by us because the carpet that was in here was so old it was wearing big holes in it for which I have pictures.
A: What is your question? Landlords are restricted from retaliatory eviction. Having clear documentation of the issues with easy to understand pictures that tell the whole story and communications between you and the landlord are necessary to have in a situation like this in court.
