Q: Landlord owes us around 10k in repair credits, is dodging the subject, we owe him 6500 (2.5 months arrearages) severely

Harassing us,threatening, & bullying us. He breeched the lease in several areas, was supposed to supply electric to outbuilding, has not, refusing to pay credits when He either refused to do the work or sent his maintenance guy out here to start projects last May, & never returned. When we went to exercise our right to purchase he violated executive order 106 by saying that because we’re behind in rent he will not entertain a purchase price until we catch up. Then when I said I was going to run the electric myself he responded by three project walks & nothing still, & told me in email that I should be spending my money on keeping rent current not projects mind you these are project he’s failed to do & are part of the lease. Is in breech for no CO ontained verified with Upper Pittsgrove Twp, has caused me medical documented severe emotional distress & now is filing evection yet he owes us more this is a 3-400k case can I get pro Bono?
