    Answered . No, that is not grounds to evict you for cause, so long as your description is accurate and there are no other facts.

    Lawyer agrees

    Answered . No matter the underlying circumstances, your landlord must give you proper and legal notice of their intent to terminate your tenancy. You should consult an attorney to review any notices you received to determine if they are proper and on what grounds they are bring brought. What you are describing could be a retaliatory eviction although it doesn't necessarily involve exercising your rights with respect the property you are renting. Review of the facts by a landlord/tenant attorney would probably be a help to you..

    Lawyer agrees

    Answered . You should review your lease agreement with an attorney. It sounds as though this could be retaliation. Also an attorney will review whether or not your landlord has given you proper legal notices etc.
