Disabled Woman Desperately Needs Help

Postby jazznjana » Sat Mar 24, 2007 4:53 pm

I am so grateful for finding this forum and hope someone can help me or steer me in the right direction. I am feeling desperate, alone and scared.

-I have rented my house (in California) for 10 years from the same landlord; no late rents or complaints.
-I am 56, disabled and have no money or family
-My income is Social Security
-I have Section 8 (for 7 years)
-In 1/07 the house I rent did not pass HUD inspection but repairs were made by the landlord (or the landlord gets no rent).
-Shortly after that I was served with a 90 day eviction notice to leave by 4/30/07. No reason given. I have requested three times that the landlord give me a reason or a letter of referrel..they ignore my requests.
-I believe they will re-rent to someone without Sec 8 so they don't have to do repairs.
-The landlord comes into my property and harrasses me with vulgar language and he has vandalized my property. I have no proof of this, however.
-On 3/21 I was served with a Unlawful Detainer Notice for non-payment of rent which I had paid on 3/6 through my bank's auto bill pay.
-I called the bank and found out they didn't issue the check until 3/21 and they will not tell me why. (There has been fraudulent activity on my checking account which I closed on 3/11 assuming my auto bills were paid), which they were, but just paid late
-The landlord received the rent check but returned it to me with a note saying to contact her attorney.
-I called the attorney twice, left messages but no return call.
-I also got 4 notices from the local Superior Court that a Unlawful Detainer Action was filed and I must vacate in 5 days.
-The Unlawful Detainer contains false information (which I can prove)
It also states it was filed and I was served on 3/15/2007. I was not served until 3/21.

I have MS and am very limited in my mental & physical capabilities. I was a business manager for 32 years prior to becoming ill. This is so humiliating and I don't deserve this happening to me.

I thank you in advance for your help.
