My landlord states that because the bill is in his name, it is his electricity, so he can turn it off if he wishes, can he do that even with a two year old in the house? I also have a month to month lease and he gave me a 30 day notice to leave, but if i keep paying my rent as normal, can he still force me to leave? I had a small issue with being scammed last month and i received help from my town with rent and so as of 8/1/10 i am responsible for the rent payments, now all of a sudden my landlord wishes me to vacate in 30 days which is impossible in todays economy as it will take at least that long to find somewhere to go, also my husband, a mechanic, has been working on the landlord's dump truck free of charge, and the landlord is not willing to negotiate with us. I need help fast!!!!
