My landlord said taxes are going up and he said rent will go up. However, we have no lease and we have been paying $800 for a long time now. Is it legal he can increase it without any lease?
Yes, but he must give you one full month's written notice (commonly called a 30 day notice).See question

I started renting an apartment with a 1 yr lease. I'm 3 months into this lease and am considering moving back to live with my parents, as it would put me in a much better financial position. I've read my lease multiple times and see no clause ...
Without seeing the lease it is impossible to tell. That said, the manager's statement is probably legally accurate except, perhaps, the forfeiting the deposit part. Tenants are generally responsible for rent for the whole term of the lease, plus reasonable marketing expenses, minus any rent paid by a new tenant during the term of the original lease.See question

You should select an Indiana city for your location to attract the attention of lawyers there. I am almost positive Indiana has caps on damages. Clearly you should hire an attorney to represent you - medical malpractice cases are among the most complicated of cases to litigate.See question

Legally, the written agreement will bind the parties.
People are not allowed to throw out other people's mail, it is likely both a civil claim and a crime.
That said, running to court on family issues is usually not worth it - you probably need to find yourself a landlord you aren't related to.See question

If the apartment is in Chicago and not in an owner occupied building of 6 units or less, it is highly likely that your landlord is in violation of our local ordinance called the Residential Landlord and Tenant Ordinance.
If your landlord has violated the ordinance, you will be entitled to a penalty of 2x your deposit, plus return of your deposit, plus attorney fees and case costs.
Most firms that handle these matters, including mine, offer free initial consultations.

There are cameras in place to see, so the landlord can tell who broke it, and see me as a person on the elevator..
It's hard to say without seeing your lease, but generally if people misuse facilities they are going to be responsible for harm they cause. Most leases make tenants responsible for the conduct of their guests. It's typically difficult to overload an elevator without doing something completely unreasonable - so I would question what was going on and whether that was the actual cause of the malfunction.
Elevator repairs can be very expensive, so you may need to hire a lawyer to help you resolve the situation.See question
