My landlord has been harassing me very bad. I need a lawyer asap!

Asked 10 months ago - Zephyrhills, FL

My landlord has been harassing me very bad. She has shut off my power illegally, she has called the cops numerous times, she has ripped stuff off my trailer in front of one of the cops she called, she has threatened me numerous times, she slanders me to the entire park VERY often (almost daily), and she has now left a paper on my door because I stayed 1 night out, stating that I have abandoned my trailer and need to call her within 4 days or they will take it from me. I am at my wits end and I know everything she has been doing is illegal but I wanted to work it out with her. I cant even speak with her without her threatening or slandering. I need a lawyer asap!

    Answered . The Lease will govern the relationship between the landlord and tenant. Generally, landlords are not allowed to perform self-help evictions by shutting off utilities or removing doors. I recommend you talk with an attorney about your situation.
