NO here YOU go still dont get it......

The landlord WILL harass you from NOW till he dies......because you are paying $400 a month rent......and if he does it this way by NOT threating you, then its legal..... and YOU will have to keep taking him to court to get things fixed.

DID you get a lease in your name for $400 a month or did the judge just dismiss the case?.....The landlord might try again to evict you if it was just dismissed.

EG..DO NOT EVER PAY YOUR EXTREMLY LOW RENT LATE........or he will try and evict you again!

BUT ALSO the Landlord is RIGHT.......if you really want things fixed AND you want to repair the damage caused by this lawsuit AND you want the landlord to stop harassing you....

Then AGREE to pay for ALL the repairs at the LEGAL increase of 1/40 of the cost per month.

If he does $4000 worth of repairs your rent will go up $100 per month forever.

This is a case of common sense.....agree to pay extra rent for no more harassment from the both will be far better off then to sue and make it even worse!


Hi. Here we go again.

: My fiance and I had a case of succession rights with our landlord's representative agent. To make a long story short, the case was thrown out of court in our favor. Our rent is $400 because that is what her aunt use to pay (who passed on).

: Now, even after the court ordered him to do repairs, he still won't do it because he wants us to pay more money. What can we do? We started n HPD action against him. The court said that he has a certain time to do it. Now he passed those times. When does this become criminal? The court has started fines against him. However, how do we know if he has to pay or not? Can he get arrested for this? Should we retain our Real Estate lawyer again or is there a different type of lawyer we need? Please help!
