We have always paid our rent on time. We havelived here for almost 2 years. Yesterday the maint man comes by to see if anyoe still lives here. I called the office to find out what was going on I was threatened with the ast mgr going to file a eviction because we have never paid a water bill. We have never recieved any water bills or notices from the mgmt office about it. Our lease does not have an water addendums attached to it. Last page does not have checked that it is included, so unless its forged they do not have one in the office either. I asked them to show me the notices or forms, they have refused to give me a total balance of what they claim is owed, will not show me any forms from our file. A 3 day notice has not been issued to us. Not to mention why would they have renewed us if we owed such a balance last May? When I went in the office yesterday he then changed it from what he said on the phone water...to rent. He said we had not paid Dec rent. I then provided them with a copy of the processed check that their company had cashed on 12/06/06.
This was all yesterday the 27th. He said that after I show him proof of payment he would forget about going to file an eviction. I took the copy back into the office bu the was gone so I had to leave it with the leasing agent.
tonight we recieved the eviction citation from the constable. They filed an eviction back on Dec 21, 2006 for non [ayment of December rent. Like I said I have copies of the actual check and the back stamped deposited by their company and cleared by the bank.
Isnt all of this illegal? Cant we sue them for the false eviction?
We plan to go to the office tomorrow to confront them with this. Surely if this was taken to court they would lose. We have proof of payment. But Im concened they will change it back to a water bill issue...then what? please help.
