Landlord Harassment

Landlord Harassment


 This post is a follow up to Final Days of My Demise.

The landlord is pissing me off now.  Back on June 1st I offered him the current month's rent due for June and in doing so told him that I am in a position that if I paid this to him that I would not have money to move out and asked if he would delay the eviction so long as I was paying the currently due rent plus whatever I could afford on top of that to go towards the arrears.  He flat out refused and told me to "just move out".

 Since then, I paid $300 to my overdue and pending shut off internet service, which I need to do my work, as well as for communication, etc.  I then paid $100 each on my gas and electric and also went into Boston to get a copy of my birth certificate and pay a reinstatement fee to reinstate my right to operate within Massachusetts.  This came out to $140.   I also had to pay domain renewals and that come out to $80, then an additional $70 for the dedicated server my network runs on.  Of the remaining $210 I still have $110 of it, the rest already spent on bullshit like toothpaste, shampoo, laundry, bus fair and other miscellaneous expenses.

The landlord has called me and left voice mail messages NINE TIMES since the date I received the summons. I simply refused to answer as I have no answers for him.  Well, today he showed up at my door and asked when I am moving out.  My response was "you served me summons to appear for eviction, so, you'll get an answer then".   He got irate and said "just move out".  I reminded him that I offered to pay June's rent and that he refused.  He played stupid trying to deny it and then stated, so, where's the money now.  I told him I paid utilities and other expenses and no longer have it and now the landlord flips out stating "that's bullshit, you didn't spend $5000 on utilities".  Perhaps he should calm the fuck down and clean the shit out of his ears, because I clearly was talking about the $1000 I had on June 1st, yet the guy wants to screw around with this bullshit.  He got irate and screamed "GET THE FUCK OUT".   I responded back, "You filed a complaint in court for eviction, so, no, I will not move out unless I received it in writing from your attorney that the complaint will not be pursued if I move out before the entry date on the summons.  His response was "fuck you, give me the fucking keys", so, I guess going to court is the only option remaining.

 I would LIKE to move out and save the landlord the time and trouble of going to court, and also so that he can get it rented out as fast as possible so he is earning income on the unit, some of which he would of had, had he not refused my payment on June 1st.  Problem is, I have NOWHERE to go, nor am I able to just move out and be on the streets without at least a storage bin for the stuff we need and intend on keeping.

Of course going to court on July 5 knowing I will lose and only be allowed a maximum of 10 days to vacate, I have only 25 days remaining before my family and I will be officially homeless, yet I have hardly any income coming in, although I do know I have $275 coming some time next week, and MAYBE an additional $200 around the 10th of July.  There's also $50 sitting in my Paypal from donations received, so, at least I know I should be able to get some sort of storage bin, BUT, I also know that if I go to court and lose, I will have an eviction for non payment on my record and it will make it impossible to find a new apartment, so, I really wish I could just move out, because prior to all this bullshit, the landlord stated that he would not pursue the matter in court if I just moved out, yet he refuses to give me that in writing, so, what the fuck am I supposed to do, pull monkeys out of my ass.

 As if owing rent is bad enough, there's still the legal fees I was court ordered to pay, so, I still have to pay off $480 by Sept 10, and then there's the driver's license reinstatement fee to be paid in New Hampshire and hopefully I will be able to renew the registration on my motorcycle so that I at least have transportation, but without a home address, being homeless, how the hell do I register my bike.. and then there's the remaining unpaid balance on the utilities which is another $500+, and then on July 11 I get wacked with an annual invoice due on my business, which if is not paid leaves me completely fucked as my entire network of domains and internet properties will go offline, so, I am FREAKING THE FUCK OUT as usual, because now I am stressed out over the fact that the landlord showed up today to pressure me into leaving without going to court.

Again I made phone calls to local charitable organizations and again I get the run around that they're out of funds or do not have funds available... WHAT THE FUCK!!!!

I am running out of time, am overwhelmed and am having difficulty staying positive as things at this point do not look good.   I have posted here as well as YouTube, etc asking for donations and in total thus far received $330, $270 of it received prior to June 1st which was part of the $1000 mentioned earlier in this post, the other $50 of it still in Paypal as mentioned.   I keep hoping and praying that I can pull out of this mess with the help of others willing to donate, so, if you can, please use the button below.  Thank you.
Please donate to help.

Overall, I need to come up with at least $3500 by my court date of July 5th in order to move into another apartment, so, I am hoping people will help. There's other related posts discussing this issue and my pending homelessness and as I reach out and plea with others for help, it seems hopeless, although six people did donate, I need more as I'm not confident I'm able to pull through this alone.
