I have a question about my former Landlord harassing me. I don't know what type of category I fall under (rent controlled, stabilized?). From September to this past May I rented a house in Wayding River, NY. To make a long story short, the house was in poor condition when i moved in (it took me and a friend 2 days to clean up the filth). I was running out of housing options, and it needed some fixing up, so I decided to rent it with another person until May. The Landlord told us that we can get 2 other roommates to help defer the cost of rent. We didn't have a lease, we had a verbal agreement. She never gave us a lease. One of the roommates turned out to be a real slob. Upon moving out, I informed my Landlord that I was moving out, and 2 other people would be moving out on May 31st. It turns out the slob moved out on May 31st and she left the house real messy. Now I'm receiving harassing phone calls from my ex-Landlord about taking me to court about the house. He's also making other allegations about me which are totally untrue (i.e., I held parties every single weekend. I never had a party at that house EVER!). Can anyone tell me what my rights are? her phone calls are getting real annoying, and I don't want to end up on Judge Judy :-).
