    I stopped by a friends house to use her computer, because I wanted to let everyone know the reason I have been away. A few weeks ago I found out my landlord was stealing my utilities to run his computer buisness. I called and turned him in to the gas and electric company. They came down and investigated and informed my landlord it was against the law to be using my utilities to run his buisness. I relationation he had my internet turned off and served me with an eviction. I will be back as soon as I get everything straigtened out...

      He cannot do that legally.  I hope you are getting a lawyer or someone to help.

          Then a tenant-landlord association or legal aid, arbitration, etc.  He cannot evict her legally....  But I'd move out, anyway, what an unethical jerk.

    Yikes! I know how it feels -- sometimes we seem to be in a "kick me" phase of life. Sending out good karma to you!

    Lita's right. Check the internet for landlord/tenant laws in your city. There is undoubtedly a Fair Housing Agency where you live. Contact them. See if they have had previous complaints about your landlord.
    Yes, a lawyer can be expensive BUT -- you might be able to scare your utilities-stealing landlord with a strongly worded letter. I did that with a former landlord and they backed right off. They don't want to be hauled into court!
    But you will want to talk to someone about your rights (and double, triple check your lease!) to make sure you get your security deposit back. Chances are if this scumbag is out for retaliation he will stiff you and trump up "good" reasons for doing so!
    Meanwhile, it's good to know there are places like your friend's and libraries and coffee shop hotspots where you can log in to HP and keep us apprised!

    We are rooting for you to heal and repair! MM

    I don't know how it is in your state, but if your state has free legal services there's a good chance they cover people faced with eviction notices.

    OH!!! Dont be sorry. Take care of yourself, hope you get rest soon. I am so happy it is this reason instead of what I was worried about......look into the free legal aid, but you prolly dont really want him as a landlord anyway? Maybe you can sue him for tons of money cuz of emotional distress!!!!

    For a minute there I thought you said he was stealing your 'undies', not sure if that would be better or worse than your utilities.

    Best of luck getting it all sorted. smile
