Possible landlord retaliation??
Sorry this has nothing to do with the service.
I'm a bit freaked out. Ok so the building manager sends me a text this morning telling me that the out of state landlord wants to do an inspection of the property, with the building manager coming along too. She said they are also inspecting next door as I live in a duplex.
This is VERY shady, as this has never been done before and I've been living here almost 9 years. I have never even met the landlord, nor have I even met the current building manager. I pay my rent to the management company always on time since they took over in 2016 and have had no missed payments nor any complaints.
I've actually not signed a lease with them in the past 3 years because they've never sent me a new one. Goes to show how much they care about their properties.
But what happened was I reported to my local code enforcement back in November or December last year about the front porch and roof needing serious repairs and that the management company wasn't doing anything about it. I complained back in 2018 and 2019 about it to management and nothing was done. It was really that bad. After they were cited, the building manager told my neighbor and I (its a duplex) to stay off the porch and that it wasn't safe. Great.
It eventually got fixed but now I'm thinking that this landlord is trying to look for a reason to either evict us because I'm sure it cost a lot of money to get that porch fixed.
So.....my big problem with this are the 6 feral cats that live outside and I don't know if they'll use that as a reason. I'm already taking my other 2 cats to my parents to hide them. They mostly just hang out on my back porch.
My older cat is already grandfathered in before the new management took over and I think it said no pets in that new lease, but obviously I'm not getting rid of my pet because of a simple error in communication. This landlord has deposits from my brother and roommate for dogs and previous cats that lived here.
If he ends up evicting us, I believe it would be a clear sign of retaliation because of the roof. I'm already looking at a lawyer if this happens.
Gee....and the eviction ban ends July 31st. How convenient.
