    There has to be a breach of the lease for your father to be evicted. If it is true that you are on the lease, there is no breach. Are you sure that you are?

    Steven’s Answer

    See an attorney. He/she can tell you what's so about the late fees. Also 1500 + 775 rent at move in was probably illegal.

    Steven’s Answer

    Under the Landlord-Tenant Act, you can give a five day written notice saying that you will terminate the lease if not fixed in that time. If you terminate, you will not be responsible for future months and you should get your deposit back. (Of course, the landlord may fight.) Not much else you can do under the Act.

    Steven’s Answer

    A number of potential options are open to you. He may be retaliating against you for calling the city, which may subject him to substantial damages. He cannot evict barring a failure to pay rent or a breach of the lease. There is also a means for getting out of the lease without having to pay penalties. Get a legal consultation.
