Landlord Shenanigans

Sorry to hear about your troubles. I quite enjoy Crimson Dark, and it updates little enough as it is. However, I would like to comment a bit on this landlord situation you have.

I don't know where you live, so I don't know your local laws, (nor am I a lawyer) but I'm quite confident that what your landlord has done here is illegal in California. It's probably illegal in any developed nation. Even if you didn't get "the understanding that we'd still be able to live here after the work was done" in writing, it still constitutes an oral contract, and if all the tenants had that understanding you would have plenty of witnesses. I think you should talk to a lawyer. It would be big pain, but you should probably be able to get the last 6 months of rent out of the jerk. (You could probably also get the right not to be kicked out, but since you now know the landlord in unscrupulous, you probably don't want to live there anymore.)

Landlords suck.

I owed some late fees one time, and told the landlord that Id get paid on such and so day. so I got home with my shiny
paycheck in hand to give to him, and he evicted me ( posted on apt door )despite our oral agreement that he would NOT evict me if I had the money that day. so I went over to see him, and said something to the effect of : WTF?!! you said you wouldnt evict me if I have the money today and he said : Nah I dont like you. so Im evicting you anyway. and oh wheres my money?

needless to say that I found another place to live, and that @%^#@$%& didnt get so much as one single penny out of me!

pardon the rage induced cursing. that guy still ticks me off.

some landlords can be nice. Ive heard about this, but never really experienced it.
