    Does anyone have any experience dealing with the mentally unbalanced?

    I deposited 60 cash for an apartment on the 199th of last month, have the receipt. I gave the balance of 1st month and security via check on the 1st of this month. I called the next morning to complain that the place was still pretty dirty, and that a security deposit was to insure that I left it as I found it. I was not rude.
    He called me back that morning and went a little nuts, you know, on the offensive, but we left it that I was going to have the number for the land lady (his sister in law) and the rest of the keys by Monday morning. I worked all weekend on the place, cleaning and washing windows, hanging curtains, hauling stuff up there, a washer and dryer...

    Tonight he calls me, wakes me out of a sound sleep, to scream at me over the phone that I have to get my "shit out" or he'll throw it out of the window.

    So I went there tonight and called the police, the officer said he would testify that I do indeed have a key, all my stuff was there, and that I need to call civil courts or some such in the morning. My boss is calling her father, a lawyer, to help me. I have to work tonight, all my stuff is there, and if he changes the locks I'm SO screwed.

    I got the number for his sister who informed me that the check wasn't cashed and she doesn't think it'll work out. I told her that I worked all weekend getting stuff straight in there, that what she was trying to do is not legal, her agent's behavior was not normal, and that I'm contacting the authorities. I have video of the place, the key turning the lock, the officers testimony, and the receipt. How do I deal with this nightmare???:eusa_eh:

    Bummer! Take as many pictures as you can of EVERYTHING. All of your stuff, the condition of the apartment...everything. That way he cant say you damaged anything...and if he damages any of your things you have photo prof.

    I am not sure what to do in a situation like this. Im sorry i cant help.

    hugs

    Regardless of how this works out..i think you might want to find somewhere else anyway. I wouldn't want them as landlords. You would never know when they would go psycho again.

    Damn, Barb.

    You've got your bases covered with the photo/video evidence and the po-po testimony. At least you found out right away that the landlord is crazy. Although you could take them to court and get a verdict in your favor, I think it would be best if you got out of that situation completely. I know you did a lot of work to move in, but moving out and finding a new place would probably be less stressful and headache-inducing than having to deal with this assdouche as your landlord.

    We post here, right? :razz:

    Barb, I am so terribly sorry. How wretchedly stressful, to find your things held hostage and your moving plans in the mixmaster blender. Get with your lawyer ASAP and follow his advice...meanwhile, you need a new place to live. Eventually you may be able to recoop all these unnecessary charges, but that's not today's issue. Open the classifieds.

    Photogragh, photogragh, photogragh....and try to avoid going back there without a police escort. At a minimum, don't go alone. If you find the locks have been changed you might be able to legally break in...ask your lawyer.

    Don't listen to that idiot Madeline.

    You started trouble with the landlord on the first day. He was very smart to not cash your check. You are signaling that you are trouble.

    Pack your bags and get out. You are a thief. You never paid for shit if your check was not cashed. Your belongings have not been there long enough to establish any sort of legal residency.

    next time learn to STFU or better yet, stop being such a control freak with other people's property

    I like the blue font and the larger size, its easier to read. Get a life and stop whining...if it bothers you put her on ignore.
