Perfect example of a slumlord and bad landlord residing in Englewood, Fl.

Dedicating this website to exposing him for the scoundrel that he is. You'll want to consider avoiding business interactions with him, or suffer the consequences due to his dishonesty and greed. No one stepped up to the plate for me,
after contacting all possible government agencies. In question, is the Florida Landlord Tenant Law. Is it really law, or just a smokescreen that these degenerate, uncooperative slumlords scoff at, ignore, or even hide behind?
Just who is protected, and is this law fully comprehensive? According to at least one television investigative news team in Florida, the most common complaint involves bad landlords like this one. Within this website is
supportive photographic evidence clearly showing the damage to the rental property in question, 5009 Jody Ave in North Port, and a letter I wrote to the attorney general
which amounted to nothing, and I couldn't afford a private attorney at $325 an hour on social security alone.
My life was completely disrupted, my right to live in peace compromised by this inexcusable situation, and it was a two-headed monster.
Adding to my misery was my clinically depressed wife of 10 years with a history of irrational behavior, on meds, who stayed behind in NC. She got the ball rolling by waiting until after I secured the rental
before betraying me with a separation, deserting and stranding me without our vehicle, the rent amount only affordable based on our combined income. None of this made any difference to this slumlord, who refused to return my money,
first month, an additional month, last month, and security deposit, once informing him of the separation. To add insult to injury and further putting my health at risk, was this individual's poor excuse for not making necessary repairs and
removing mold prior to me moving in, that "this is why I offer cheap rents". The rent amount was still a rip off, and for a location next to a busy street besides. He had even raised it shortly before the previous tenant vacated.
What made matters even worse, is my vision failing due to multiple sclerosis triggered by all of the stress. I had moving expenses all over again just 3 months later because of the trouble this SLUMLORD put me through leading up to
and after moving in.
Legal Aid of Bay Area Legal Service stated that any background provided by the previous tenant (refer to Letter to Florida Attorney General) whom
I didn't meet until AFTER I moved in unfortunately, was merely "gossip". Gossip? Seeing is believing, this house may even be condemnable, and same landlord had blatantly demonstrated his unwillingness to cooperate and make repairs that should
have been rendered prior to moving in (Landlord and Tenant/Civil Practice and Procedure/Florida Statute 83.51). If he even agreed to remedy the mold problem and made the necessary repairs, he would've inconvenienced me
and done so on my time to make them. Also according to the Florida Landlord Tenant Law (Landlord and Tenant/Civil Practice and Procedure/Florida Statute 83.201), I could've abandoned the premises due to the DISREPAIR the house is in, and not be held
to ANY LEASE. Legal Aid in a subsequent letter stated that "there may be a statute of limitations that applies to your case which could cut off your rights if you fail to take legal action before a certain date", while at the same time advising
that they couldn't represent me. What a complete waste of time! Which begged the question, JUST WHOSE SIDE WERE THEY ON???
All responses welcome before losing my vision completely to MS by going to the contact page, if you too are a victim of a dishonest landlord with a similar story to tell.
(Can it be as dreadful as mine was?)
