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.
appologize will be accepted with a cup of coffee
We were missing you
Landlords suck in general, I know this. Good luck sorting it out.
Wishing you the best. I hope you find a better place to live for less rent.
Yes I'm going to contact a lawyer tommaro. It's always something with me. I got rearended a couple days ago too. What could be next. LOL maybe I can find a lawyer who will work probono or something
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
That sucks! I hope you do get everyting right and sue the landlord. that is uncool! Miss you chica and hope you return soon.
Good luck! Go kick some ass & get out of that place! Try Legal Aid.
Sorry to hear about your troubles, K. I agree with Jane. Go and kick some proverbial ass!
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.

Hey everyone, I snuck on the computer at work. Just wanted to keep you updated. I looked at a home yesterday to buy for 12,000 its a fixer uppper. My house payment would be 130 a month but i gotta come up with 3,000 down so I am going to be at work everyday till I make it. I hope this whole situation was for a reason. Gotta talk to my bank after work today. Everyone please pray for me that everything works out for the best. Lately it seems that something is always going wrong...
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.

To complete my run of bad luck, last night my house was struck by lightning. It fried my computer as well as my modem. I'm using a borrowed 'net stick which keeps giving me errors half the time and based on the service my ISP gives me, I doubt I'll be getting 'net back for awhile (yes, I wrote a...

My dearest bud CC Riter aka Ralwus has not been on because of a very tragic death in his family. I am posting this thread to let everyone know he is okay, not to worry. Although his heart is broken. I am sure that those of us who care for him as much as I do will want to send him our dearest...

I have just been told that my main source of income will end next month so I need to find a new one and fast. I think I am going to have to figure out how to make regular money here as well which I still haven't been successful at.

To make a long story short, I bought a house because my landlords were stealing my utilities, then evicted me when I reported them. The new house is great, it cost 14,000 and my payment is only $132 a month. I guess things happen for a reason.

Well this may be my last post here for awhile. I have been fighting foreclosure since November of 2009, and today we finally ran out of options. So, as much as I love HP and the people here, other priorities are going to take the front seat. I may drop in from time to time, but I don't see me as...

My Shihtsu Georgie, died Sept 14, suddenly of pancreatitis. He was never sick a day in his life. He was 15, but even the E.R. vet said he couldnt believe this, said he would probably be ok after some fluids and antibiotics. He had vomiting and diarrea for about 12 hours which became severe in the...
