Considering that everyone is Yelling at richard, maybe I could give you some advice... Do you have recipts for the equipment and supplies you purchased for this job? Do you have any documentation that work was being done by you? Like Permits and orders.
I assume this landlord can't evict you if you present a business relationship reflecting your verbal agreement instead of a lanlord/tenant relationship to a housing court judge. Every state is different, but if you were making improvements to the house and the apartment, because of this verbal agreement the judge may see it your way.
It is a long shot, but anything is worth nothing.
Of course stop everything your doing and take everything that you have a receipt for.
