: My roomate and i are in a bit of a bind with our former landlord. What happened was we signed a lease with the worse landlord in town and once we found out that they were getting sued by the county for renovations ($250,000)we wanted to get out of the lease. They high pressured us into singing the lease saying we better sign it now or we will lose the apartment. Our campus lawyer then sent a letter to the landlord saying we wouldn't be living there because of this misinformation. Now one year later we have been sued and have to go to small claims court.
1. WWW = WORLD Wide Web: how can people help if you don't say where in the World you are?
2. Did you read the small claims information on TenantNet? It's under NYC Housing Court on the main page (To: TenantNet: perhaps you could change that title, make it more general...) the Guide to Small Claims is written for NYC, but most should apply out there in Wisconsin. Read also the Nolo section. Nolo.com has more Small Claims help.
3. Small Claims is designed to NOT need lawyers, however, can your campus attorney help point you to the laws involved, e.g.?
