I've lived in my apt. since 1-03; annual rent increases=$25 thru 1-12; this yr. LL cites $65 COLA; my neighbor says he rec'd $10 increase 4 '13. LL running special 13 mo. lease; HDTV and cash card; newbies rent=$975; my current rent is same, but would rise to $1040; Case worker said it's within guidelines, but I'll tap out in a yr, and invade SS corpus. I said 2 her: you're free 2 spend state's $$, but you'll affect my ability 2 remain put; medical issues cause severe $$ hardship=poor credit; no $$ 4 security or mover. Is this a violation of the equal protection clause of US Const? ability to contract fairly? Legal aid is only option...but they do what's expedient...always underfunded, overworked. Should I use them, or go solo in Land/Ten. Ct? or Chancery Div.?
