Q: I feel like my landlord is engaged in Harassment and Stalking

Last summer, I was homeless. I started working for a guy that started renting a house to me. I worked 7 days a week nearly 14 hours a day. I took a day off and let him know beforehand. He would call asking where I was and I would remind him I was taking a day off. He would then start calling me every hour or so, and I eventually stopped answering his calls. He would then start calling my family. He comes to the house several times a week. When he comes to the house he pulls in to the yard toward bedroom windows and lays on the horn. He then gets out and starts walking around outside looking in and knocking on the windows. It got to the point I installed surveillance cameras, and he requested to have access to them so he could view them whenever. His behavior has progressed to the point that when he continually calls and I don't answer he will show up at the house, and involve the local police department to do a "well-being check". This behavior has to be stopped.

A: You didn’t ask a legal question. A reasonable next step would be to hire a local attorney to write a letter to your landlord.
