Hand the rent check in a day late, its refused and I get a nasty form threatening eviction if I do not pay by bank draft or money order within 2 weeks.

7 years, never caused any problems and this is how I get treated.

Considering the apartment down the hall got torched last week and the guy before was running a house of prostitution, you would think they would be happy to have a tenant like me.

I had planned to tough it out here for 2 more years until my son was out of high school so I had more flexibility in where I live, but I think I need to get out of here.

Jerks!!

That really sucks, not much you can do about it other than move. I would hand in the money order/bank draft on the 13th day and be sure to get a hand written receipt from him with it stating the month the money was for, just to cover your butt.

Thanks Ken. I am inclined to leave at the end of the month since they already have the last month. Technically I need to give 60 days notice so I guess I need to consult a lawyer on the situation. Sigh...

Bruno. The people that run the building are really nice and are upset that they may lose a good tenant. If I decide to tough it out, I do have a rather long list of things that I will demand they repair and will be more than happy to call the health department the first time they let the dumpster overflow, as has happened in the past.

I think you are right. If I have to stay beyond the end of the month, I will defintaly make sure any payment is properly docmented.

It sucks when years of good behavior are rewarded by a total lack of faith.

Now, just for the sake of interest, I'm betting a heat gun around the corners and ceiling does a good job of making it look like the apartment is well overdue for a paint job without looking like tenant damage. He/she will lose a week's rent or so as they repaint. I'm not recommending this, just speaking imaginatively...

I dunno, Fred. That kind of convenience is really hard to find.

Seriously though, if the parking lot of your bldg is where your car was violated last fall, and there's other criminal activity going on there, you probably should leave anyway.

You say the owners are nice. Is it a mgmt. co. that's being the a-hole here? Does your province have any real tenants' rights laws? I'd check it out.

I used such laws to repeatedly screw a shithead landlord. Every time he'd send a rent increase, it didn't come certified mail, like it's supposed to. I got him on that twice in housing court.

And, in cases like this, I think you should have blanket permission to spell out 'fuck,' even in the subject line.

Agreed?


Always call the place you live a house. When you're old, everyone else will call it a home.
