: : Hmm..what sort of things do you suggest to drop?
: I truly HAVE to admit that the temptation to write a "shopping list" is ever so great right now. But I won't.
: You see, including such things on a forum like this might get into the wrong monitors and I'm sure there are "some" who would simply use info of this manner strictly for self-fulfilling reasons.
: All I will say is; if you feel you have truly been abused by a landlord and you've completely exhausted all reasonable and sane measures to remedy a poor situation, the powers of imagination can be quite interesting.

Regarding your previous suggestions:

If the tenant damages the apartment, the LL can claim real damages. If they've exahausted the security (by using it for the last month's rent), the LL can sue for the damages. This may well not be worth the LL's while, but the chances go up with the amount of the damage, and the ease of proof.

As far as calling the IRS, that esteemed government agency has some nasty habits of its own, like investigating the people who give it tips, as well as the subject of the tip. And they may not take an anonymous tip seriously.
