A: By harassing you, Thr LL is engaging in unjustified normal behaviors which is known as a violation of the Covenant of peace and Quiet Enjoyment of your rental unit. Please write him a letter with all the things he is doing against you and ask him to stop immediately. If he does not, then call a lawyer and ask the lawyer to write a letter for you. Best of luck.
