Harassment by Landlord
Approximately 16 months ago I agreed to rent a mobile home that was owned by a co-worker, whom I supervise. The agreement was verbal and I was never provided a written lease agreement nor was there any arrangements made with regard to the lease/purchase option. In August of this year, I gave notice that I would be moving, yet agreed to pay rent through October 31, 2003 & vacated August 27, 2003. Today I received an email at my work email address in which they have threatened to file an eviction notice & and mail details regarding my conduct as a tenant to the Mayor and City Council. The details include, NSF checks,damages to the property,late payments,property neglect & a claim that I have harassed her husband, my employee, on the job.She has also threatened to forward specifics about the ”harassment” her husband has come under to the Mayor and City Council.What can I do and are their laws to protect the Tenant from Landlord harassment, as well as the possibility of slanderous remarks made public due to open records and or her decision to forward to the Mayor and City Council?
