I rented a trailer for 2 years, month to month, no lease no paperwork, nothing. told the landlord I was moving out at the beginning of July. The electricity was in his name, not mine. Rent was paid up til the 1st of August. I got an eviction notice at the end of July, called the landlord and he said it was a mistake!? I then moved out two weeks later.
Now he has filed a small claim trying to sue me for back rent. The thing is, sometimes I gave him a check, sometimes I gave him cash. I do have a handwritten note he gave me stating I owed 350.00 in rent and also electric, but the electric is in his name, not mine! He now says it is 900.00 in back rent! BS!
There was never an agreement in writing and I never got a receipt. I know how stupid this sounds but I am 23 and this was my first rental.
I decided to move when he offered to take the rent out in trade.
Does he have a case?
