A: You need the help of an experienced real estate lawyer. The issues you raised go beyond a simple unlawful detainer matter. I suggest you contact a good real estate lawyer with experience litigating cases such as yours where your efforts made the property more valuable than at the time you commenced your tenancy.

Do not delay, or you may lose your rights.
