Long story short - Our apartment is attached to her home with a door that has no lock. That door goes into shared laundry room. Her charges start in 1994 and go all the way through a charge she is out on bail for. Some examples of her charges Burglary first degree, forgery, grand larceny, DUI 3 times, Fraudulent checks, and a current charge of wrongful death that doesn't go back to court until next year. Would you wait for lease to run out or break lease?

We just came out of months of being homeless. Moving is going to be hard to do since we aren't fully reestablished yet, but it looks like we are going to have to figure out how. Buying lock tomorrow, but she isn't going to be happy when she finds it.
Christin is absolutely right about putting in a lock. This woman can't stop you from locking YOUR side of a door that leads to YOUR apt. Why does she need access to your apt to get to the laundry room? You have a legal right to protect your stuff
The roof leak wasn't in your original question. That is definitely a Code violation and can be reported if she doesn't fix that.
MizBejabbers, would Fair housing be helpful and legal Aid?
I'm not sure about what all Fair Housing covers, try it. Legal aid might be willing to help you, but in my state, legal aid goes to bat only if the party files a lawsuit. If that is the case, they might still give you some advice on how to avoid one.
Set up a page on GoFundMe and I'll contribute. Blessings, peace and safety to you and your family!!!
Of course, she's VERY KIND.....Never met a con-artist/Scammer in my life that didn't play a number of "roles" extremely well. Before you can get close enough to do someone damage...U need to get them to LIKE and trust U. OLD game...same M.O.
Thank you express, but I didn't post this to get anything other than opinions and emotional support! I greatly appreciate the thought! Yes fpherj I agree!
The "wrongful DEATH charge keeps bothering me.My gut tells me U need to move swiftly. It's possible that 84 yr.old man could turn up dead in the near future.Stay as clear of her as possible! U say she has a husband? Did you run a check on HIM??
They just married in November, and he seems to have a clean criminal back ground other than a couple of tickets (at least in surrounding counties). Makes me nervous to, but there is no information I can find with details.
Local housing codes are usually online. Please look up and read them. Ours say a landlord can't enter when the occupant is absent without permission or in case of an emergency. The mouse bait could be installed when you are home. It's an excuse.
I agree miz, but I do know that if the lease states they can enter anytime for maintenance then they can. Lease has a special section that states anytime between 9 and 5 for maintenance.
Not good. The lease my tenants sign with me say "with permission or for an emergency". I wouldn't sign a lease that says anytime between 9 and 5 unless it said "with permission". I signed one like that one time as a tenant and he used it to spy on me
She VIOLATED the law w/ that clause in your lease.State law mandates tenants have full right to "privacy.".She may NOT "ask"you to permit access 24/7 4 maintenence! U & hubby need to fine tooth comb apt for any electronic devices!...cameras, wir
Finally got into it with her. Yesterday she knew we were gone for the day and sent me a text telling me she was going into my apt w/ a roofer (on 4th) I told her not possible because of lock, she told me I couldn't, ended heated with me home. Ridicul
peeples...Pls don't leave us hanging in utter suspense & concern. Start a new thread or write a hub about this situation, so readers will know how this tenant/landlord situation worked out. This is informative in terms of "rights" of renters.
Stuck here until I get my grant refunds from college next month or early sept. Roof leaked again after she supposedly had it fixed yet again on 4th of July. BS. This has become my place to vent since she is on my FB I can't vent there. Sorry all!
Her being on FB is exactly why you SHOULD vent there! Let her know ur on to her & not afraid to expose her. Way too many red flags, peeples. U need to inform housing authorities. Protect future innocent tenants from her "tricks."
Yes, landlords may "go into your apt," for maintenance....BUT only at your request or permission and must give you notice. No way can she go in & out at will.....especially when you are not at home!! This woman is simply up to NO GOOD. RED FLAG
I was thinking the same but moving is costly. Thinking of suing her for the roof leak she keeps half way fixing until the next rain when it leaks again.
Maybe you can find a loophole in your lease or a subletter with the landlord's approval? I've also seen people successfully air dirty laundry like this on local news stations and get what they were seeking. I sure hope you get out + peace of mind.
Agreed, Sha....As a matter of fact, peeples...I HOPE ur making phone calls right now. This gets much more sinister as we interact. I believe the law will back U w/ all her VIOLATIONS. What do the other tenants say?
I only really interact with one set of them, the others do not speak English well, the ones I do interact with are weirded out also but are older and on one SSI check per month. They have no options. I called and left message with housing authority.
It doesn't appear so, but certainly concerning!
I really think you have the best answer to Peeples problem. I think some people are urging her to act hastily and in a way she may come to regret either emotionally or legally.
Don't worry Miz, I know most of the laws and don't plan on doing anything hastily other than getting the lock installed.
Weird vibes is what made me look. I checked state public online records. I'm up to 24 charges in 3 counties, not even done looking yet. It seems they were all unrelated to this apartment that she just got 2 years ago. Frustrating!
and it only gets more curious..100% sure the person in the records is HER & not someone w/ the same name? I would wonder how she could acquire a property w/ all her legal issues & expenses? Can u casually speak to neighbors? I would. Keep di
She's owner financing the home through an old man (84). Definitely her, same middle name, same birthday, and in one I was able to pull her mug shot. I know her dad is well off, but don't know extent.
Oh My...an 84 yr old man? Do we see scam # 12 before our eyes? Her wealthy Dad knows better than to give/lend her money.. Not a good sign. If moving is a financial strain, at least begin DOCUMENTING any thing you feel needs tracking.Now. "in case"
