What a CHEAPSKATE LOW LIFE, and this slumlord is wealthy! I know what you're thinking, that's how he became wealthy. He has also been associated with three companies formed over a 55 year period with two of the companies still active.
Cosmetics and the film industry, and he wants to rob me of my money too? He will probably try to keep my security deposit, then I'll have the moving expenses all over again a mere three months later, while losing my vision
from MS triggered by all of this undue stress. 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, is merely "gossip". Gossip? Seeing is believing, this house may even be condemnable, and same landlord has blatantly demonstrated his unwillingness to cooperate
((Landlord and Tenant/Civil Practice and Procedure/Florida Statute 83.51). Also according to the Florida Landlord Tenant Law (Landlord and Tenant/Civil Practice and Procedure/Florida Statute 83.201), I can abandon the premises due to the DISREPAIR
this house is in, and not be held to ANY LEASE. Legal Aid in a subsequent letter states 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 they can't represent me. Which begs the question, JUST WHOSE SIDE ARE THEY ON??? And my social security won't pay for a private attorney at $325 an hour!
