Ans.and new question

Posted by ppijn on May 19, 2000 at 10:10:05:

I previously asked for help re: landlord eviction
and the lack of services,to wit: holes in floors
bath-room bath-tub clogged all the time,sink
unusable,tiles off the walls,floor sinking becaus of constant water flow from up-stairs pipes,no
oven,not to mention heat and hot water problems
for all of the years.Yes, I complained,inspectors
came and some times they repaired the kitchen
wall that fell down,and put in a new toilet when
we couldn't use it,as it over-flowed if you used
it.I stopped paying rent,thinking that this would
force him to take me to court.Well it is over I
guess 10 years,8 or 15 take a guess,With what he
says,I say, and what I can research.The DRCR took
him to court.He says I wouldn't let him in, and I
owe all this rent.They now are forcing him to
make repairs.My follow up question, from the
last time I asked is >He never gave me a new
lease he refused many years ago.Also like a
jerk I spent the money and proceeded to get
into deep financial trouble. I want to know if
after all these years of taking his crap,and
living in hell,can he now tell a court he
refuses to take my rent, and throw me out?
also would the court give him all the back
rent?I filed a rent reduction request back in
94 have all the violations for my apt.Which
total 99.and can possibly get some some rent
for about 5 months.Is he not supposed to have
given me a lease?Doesn't that count.I am very
tired of fighting with him,and want to just
pay the rent, and live in peace.Is this
posible?I do not have money to move,It will
be money I max out a credit card with,if I
have to pay back rent.
