Slumlord- I have no lease

Posted by Victoria on July 24, 2001 at 09:28:22:

I have been livng in a house in Brooklyn for the past 5 years without a lease. The landlord refuses to give us one. Basically, he is a slumlord- we had no heat all last winter(he then raised the rent to pay for the new heating unit) Recently, we had a flood in the basement, which took him almost 6 weeks for him to clean out. He now wants to charge us for the hauling of our damaged stuff.

I feel the situation is very unstable. The household feels as though we have no rights and we do not want to turn him in for violations for the fear of eviction or the raising of the rent-if he wants he can evict us at any given moment.

If he decided to evict our household how long it would take?
Wuuld we have to go to court? Can I sue him for my property that was stored in the basement and got ruined? Can he enter the property as he pleases?

Can yo email me with answers.. someone.. anyone?

Also, If some kind soul knows knows of a studio or one bedroom, please help.

A BIG thank you to all in advance.

Victoria
