Q & A

Do any of you rent rather than own the home you live in? Does anyon here know anything about what your rights are as a tenant? If your landlord got drunk and was banging on your door yelling and going off at 1:oo in the morning, what would you do? Calling the cops isn’t an option. They‘re all friends with her. Plus tonight I’m receiving ridiculous texts from her husband and it’s after 1o pm here. WTH? Any words of wisdom here or DE-stressing advice would be awesome. I used to love it here. Now I’m nt sure I want to stay. They jvst had their after bar-party having friends move in downstairs too. GREAT. NOT!

    • I think- But I am not sure.
      you can go online and look up your local or state information regarding Tenant Laws.
      Even tho the police are her friends it seems to me that you still have rights.
      I just googled this. I hope it helps

    • Is it possible that they actually WANT you to move out for some unknown and unrelated instance? Maybe they want to rent to another friend or something.
      Or maybe they are wanting to BE your friend.

      I think I would have to call her up in the daytime and just ask whats going on.

    • I would definitely save all the unwelcomed text’s you’ve received from him and any cell call’s. (Noting the times.  They should be contacting you during “normal business hours“).

       I too would call her during the day and ask
      her what’s the deal.  Plus, I think I’d have to move.  I couldn’t deal with the  noise.  I have never ever just dropped in the people renting my house or called them.  They call me when there is a problem and we take care of it and that’s that.  

      I know moving is a hassle but I think it would be worth it rather than staying and dealing with that.

    • Hi there..
      I have wondered myself if they want this place to become some sort of party house or something. The landlord certainly participates. The entire vibe around here has changed and is causing me, Jess and Chris alot of unusual stress that I don’t think I’ve ever seen anyone deal with. We feel like we have to tip toe up here while they‘re having parties til 4 a.m. I didn’t call the cops because of the repercussions i’d have to deal with later. Maybe I should have.
      This is all wierd.
      We feel like we have to whisper in our own house. PLuS, the landlord actually asked me to use my BACK staircase instead of the front one because the guy downstairs sleeps late. HE DOES NOT EVEN WORK!! WHATEVER. Tell him to go buy a house then!!! I’m pretty mad.

    • I would pack up and get the hell out of there as soon as I could.  Im wondering why she was banging on your door?? Drunk or not....she must have wanted you for something.  What kind of texts is he sending you??? Asking you to leave, to party, or what??  Just very odd behavior.  

      Good luck to you Jenz.  I know it’s hard being in that position but you shouldnt have to put up with that crap ...especially for no reason.  

      xoxo

    • It’s all so bizarre.
      She was texting me Saturday night while she was wasted, knowing I was @ work AND pounding on the door here. Nothing was even going on. The neighbors were having a party in the back yard but other than that, nothing up here. I don’t get it.

    • I do have a not-so-great feeling about this but I’m not sure why or what it means exactly yet. Only what I’ve seen. I have known the L.L. for some time now but it seems like there might be trouble- I can’t make sense out of the feeling..

    • Jenz, I had an experience many years ago when we lived in Florida..our landlords were in their 60’s at the time and in the beginning seemed like nice people...my hub was in the service at that time and would be away...the husband was pleasant when his wife was around, but when she was not around he would come over to our apartment and bang on my door and demand money that he claimed was overdue and would linger around my door sometimes for a while..I was only a young girl and felt very leery but could not show evidence of anything...he did try to get into my apartment one evening when my hub was gone and at that point when my hub returned I told him we are out of there..luckily we were moving back to the Northeast so it worked out..that is what I mean, trust your gut feeling about the situation.

    • I had a situation in my previous apartment where I felt I was being harassed. I was a good tenant...paid my rent, very clean and quiet. The bldg. was sold and the new landlord raised the rent $100 as soon as my lease was up and then another $50 the following year. He then started questioning who my visitors were and if they lived there then yelled at me for reporting him to the city for the unkempt lawn which I had nothing to do with. The bldg. was in a business district and in the village where we lived they require you to keep you lawn up or you are fined. I’m sure he knew that. I just figured he just wanted me to leave and because he didn’t have any real reason to evict me then I guess he decided he would harass me until I left. I asked him if he would break my lease so I could move and he was more than happy to oblige. That told me alot right there.
