My new landlord will not return my phone calls, hand delivered letters
or FAXs. This has been going on since June 22, and the other tenants say
that is what the landlord does. I recently documented this fact with the
following certified letter:
"July 7th I called you for the 6th time on the telephone, sent a fax,
and delivered a copy of the fax to 513 Branard at 6:30 PM. This is all
documented with Kinko’s receipts and fax confirmations. Your lack of
disputing these facts confirms your acceptance of them as fact. Your
lack of denying receipt of the FAX confirms the fact it did arrive and
that FAX transmissions are an acceptable means of communication. Your
lack of leaving telephone messages confirms the fact that you intend not
to return my telephone calls.
Your refusal to provide the most basic customer service, communicating
with your customer, confirms the fact you do not intend to uphold your
lease obligations in good faith."
Contracts must be executed in good faith--correct!? Can I terminate the
lease for lack of communication? Can I withhold rent at the end of the
lease to recoup my deposit? How well will the documentation like the above
help my cause in court should this get out of hand?
Who can I contact for further information in Houston, TX.
