Update on Jerk Landlord

Apparently he just texted my daughter while she is at work that we suddenly need to pay the gas & electric immediately or he will shut it off....

as per California Tenant Law (and other sites I have read) http://www.caltenantlaw.com/Eviction.htm if he does that he owes me money.

THANKS Shadeshaman for the links

He has my daughter in a panic - I am sooo done with this jack ass. Our dogs are going away tomorrow, we have boxes stacked over our heads. Little Boy is going away Monday, not to return till we are moved in to new place. Daughter & I do have places to stay if we wanted to be gone and not here -- that isn't the fucking point.

"E & K you need to pay the SDGE bill of $159.38 or it will be turned off. We do not have any deposit & you have not repaired plumbing problems send check to PO BOX immediately to avoid turn off."

Nice, eh???

Yes I am texting him a reply tonight when she gets home from work, stating the code & reminding him that I have until the 5th to vacate premises, that he cannot shutoff utilities, change locks, move my belongings or threaten us without monetary fines -- then if he does it anyway I will file with the court & get my money, thank you dumbshit

it's $100 day for no utilities, and $2000 for each time my daughter or I feel threatened by him...

I'm honestly speechless. What a terrible person. I mean, some of us act all casual about the winter holiday.... everyone has different ideas about the importance (or non) of Christmas ... but what kind of person evicts and threatens a CHILD at this time of year?

Huge good moving wishes to you. Evil eye to him.

On Saturday when I was away moving dogs & daughter was at work, dickwad landlord posted a 3 day quit in the middle of our 30 days, which he can't but whatever

so much fucking drama and stupidity

What did he post? Sorry, I don't know the stateside lingo...

If he literally posted some notice on the house, maybe you should post a copy of the rental laws right next to it? I probably would. Since you are moving out and just want to protect the property during the hours you are moving stuff.

The whole thing is horrible. I'm so sorry.

we have just not been home so we can't be "served" & then he slipped it under our door -- lame ass

Yes, the Mr wants me to file a police report about the threats etc & has said to me that even if I chose not to engage in the landlord's behaviour doesn't mean he shouldn't be held accountable at some point, and since we will know where he lives etc etc

the daughter & I are here tomorrow to complete the packing & hopefully arrange a moving date & be done with here, but I will not be telling the ass we are out early...hell no

Bee - a 3 day quit notice is funny really because it is actually more of a 5 day or more to act notice and with weekends and holidays *shrugs* whatever -- if we are still here in the 6th THEN he can begin the true eviction process at his cost & by going to court to get a notice, not this silly piece of paper...

it's just too much stupidity & drama

so grateful we all have places to be & that mine is full of so much Love & Peace right now
