Last week myself and my landlord signed a new lease. Today I recieved
an eviction notice in the mail. Confused? So am I.My Landlord sent me
two pre-signed copies of my new lease. I signed them both and sent one
back to him a check for the first month's rent. The eviction notice which
I just recieved talks about terminating our month by month aggreemt and
asks that I remove myself from my home by Nov.7. It says nothing about the
new lease. When I called my landlord he claims not to have recieved my
check and signed copy of the lease. He declined to comment on his reasons
for the eviction notice and hung up the phone on me.
Between these two events (lease and eviction) something else occoured. I
had a conversation concerning repairs to the appartment. There are holes
floors, Plaster is coming away from the walls and ceiling, the stove doesnt
work, the windows frames are broken, the wiring is faulty. My landlord has
been promising to fix these things for two years but never has. I have
a copy of and answerphone tape of him promising to fix these things as a
precondition for my signing a new lease. Last week we spoke of these
promises, he started skirking again and we had a heated discussion. Next
thing I know I have this eviction notice.
My Landlord is refusing to recognise my lease. However I have a copy of this
lease signed by him and by me. That counts for something doesn't it?
Does this eviction notice mean anything at all?
If you can answer my questions, please do. I will be very grateful. Thank
