In 2005 I moved into my place. The landlord didn't mind that I stored my dads belongings in the basement. The house has been sold twice. The current landlordbought the house as is, yet trying to hold me accountable for damages that the previouse landlords said was ok.. This last June 1st the landlord gave me notice, "this is your 30 day eviction notice, if you are not out by July 1st, rent will increase to $500.00" then sighned & dated it. July is almost over & I asked to stay threw August. The landlord lives in Washington state & my daughter & I live in another state. She has been sending me text messages saying that if I,"don't remove your dads stuff from the entire house, I will call the police & have them evict you". So I removed my dads belongings.. This seems like blackmail.
The police do not evict, absent a court order, an "eviction." This involves filing, notice, and an opportunity to be heard. So, while the daughter is in error, it may not be something a judge would take great notice of. If the belongings are out, perhaps the issue is over. So maybe it's time to move on.
We do not have a client/attorney relationship until you make an appointment, we discuss your case face to face, I accept a retainer, and we explictly agree to enter into representation.
Its not blackmail--its BS.
LL's do not have power to evict. ONLY a court does.
LL is trying to scare you out. Don't believe it. Pay what you owe for rent, on time, and stay as long as your lease agreement allows you possession..
