i`ve been paying rent for 16 yr`s. (no lease agreement), and my landlord will not make repairs to the unit. in 16 yr`s, he has only made 5 or less feable attempts to fix anything. more recently i have been subjected to harassment from some of the neighbors for falsely accusing me of turning them into welfare. they continue to harass me and i have asked the landlord repeatedly to evict them because i just turned 68 and cannot take the stress. he won`t do anything. he is well off, yet say`s he can`t afford it. the situation is becoming pretty dangerous here, but no landlord help. i can see several ways in which he should be made to pay for his failures as the landlord. i want to recover only a little, the lawyer can keep all the rest. he should not be a landlord.
