My landlord received a phone call from someone asking to confirm whether or not I lived at his house and used his internet. My landlord said yes.
I have since been receiving a number of harassing phone calls, emails, mail spam, etc. And now my landlord is getting additional harassing phone calls from a friend of the person who originally called him. He has now received two harassing phone calls, the original call and now one from the original caller's friend. Both callers are making up lies about me (that I'm "harassing" them, challenging people to come to my house and fight me online, etc.)
Now my landlord is threatening to evict me if he receives another phone call. I told him it was his fault for disclosing my personal information to some random person who called him. He says that my online activities are breaching his rental agreement... I told him that the callers are lying to him.
What are my rights in this situation? Is my landlord able to give out my personal information to people who are harassing me and then evict me after getting harassing phone calls from the people he gave my information to?
What personal information of you are you alleging the landlord to have given out? All you wrote is that the landlord confirmed where you lived. Where you live is not personal and the landlord has no legal duty to protect that information.
If your tenancy is month to month, the landlord does not need any reason to end the tenancy. Unless your city has a just cause ordinance like Seattle's, you and your landlord can end the tenancy at any time. No reason needs to be given by either party. The landlord is prohibited by law from committing unlawful discrimination.
So, even if lies are being told about you, the landlord can still end your tenancy.
You can go to court to get court orders to prohibit the persons calling you from calling you.
