In this situation, my landlord is technically my mother, I've been paying rent now for 18 months, every month and it is well documented. Over the course of paying rent, nothing has changed, I'm still constantly disrespected and continuously dealing with mind games and lack of privacy (i.e. she opens almost all of my mail, goes through all of my stuff when I leave, she removed the door to the room) Whenever I have guests over, she causes a scene and embarrasses me. Also, shortly after I started paying month she let a man move in she barely knew and it was even worse, from March til August of last year. Now, she's threatening to evict me for doing nothing, she gave me the notice. Is there any way I can get my rent back for what I've had to deal with? It'd be helpful in finding a new place.
I am sorry about your situation. It would appear that the best advice I can give you is to move out as quickly as possible.
Regarding receiving some form of refund for the rent that you paid over the last 18 months, I believe that would be very difficult if not impossible to recover.
