Please help, being sued and locks being changed

Posted by Christine W. on January 19, 1998 at 21:53:06:

I moved into a private residence in Nov and paid 1st month plus security
by check. My landlord requested I pay Dec rent in cash because he had
trouble cashing the check at his bank, Foolishly, I guess, I did this
and never received a receipt. I informed him that due to work I would
be relocating and needed to move out but not until Feb 4. I infomed him
that I would use the security to pay Jan rent and settle Feb 1-4 before
I move. He has now gotten nasty and said if I dont pay for all of Feb.
that I have to be out by Jan 31 so he can re-rent(this is private res).
He said If I dont pay Feb in advance he would change the locks on Feb 1
and take me to small claims court for not paying Dec and Jan rent.HELP!!!
