: Keep up your rent strike. If he threatens to sue, threaten to rat him out to the city.

Single tenant rent strikes can backfire, especially when the tenant's legitimacy of occupancy are already in question. It's better to go into court and show the judge that you're willing and able to live up to your side of the contract. Your attorney can set up an escrow account for this purpose.
