  • Living a Nightmare NEED HELP!!!!

    I know this will sound unbelievable, but you cannot make this stuff up. I have renting a single family home in FLA. through a Real Estate Agent. We had an agreement through e-mail to pay rent late in Jan. 08. Before the date of the rent was due I was visited by her and a bodygaurd/WCW Wrestler (This is true it was verified) and we were threatened either pay up or get out. There visit that night to our home turned into a nightmare on elm street. The police came out and wrote a report against them, The agent/Wrestler basically assaulted us verbally and with body motions, insulted my wife & daughter using vulgar language, Gave false statements to the police, and she has not accepted any responsibility she says go sue the landlord. Can I withhold rent? I sent a 7 day notice to withhold because she violated the county Ordinances. Harrassment, retaliation, disturbing the peace. and many other violations. The Landlord also did not want to accept any responsibility, they said thats between you & the agent. I do not know if I have any rights! Can anyone HELP US!!
    Thank you.....Desperate Family in FLA

    FLA = Florida?
    This is a UK-only website, so we cannot answer USA-legal questions; sorry!
    Similar questions often arise here, but the legal position is almost certainly different.

        No, unfortunately. At least UK members realise that we're not paranoid: Landlord/Tenant disputes happen all over the world!
        And obviously no website anywhere is as great as LandlordZONE.

          Now there's another difference between us and our American cousins. Here we get mean looking bailiffs. Over there you get someone to powerslam your ass followed by a tombstone piledriver. Yeehah!

            I'm surprised that you are even asking, it's obviously some kind of scam.

          • Burglary Damage - Who Pays?
            Pb21
            Our rented flat was broken into, in the process the Yale lock was broken and cost £100 to repair. The landlord is refusing to pay this on the basis we didn’t also lock the door with the mortice lock. We didn’t use the mortice lock as it wasn’t working although the landlord did not know this....

            Following on from my last post, had the tenant not informed the police and landlord at the time, they would have failed in their duty. I therefore would expect the tenant to foot the bill at the end of the tenancy or sooner.

            Criminal damage not connected with the tenant occurred during the tenancy and was reported as such at the time. It is not the case that the tenant caused or was responsible for loss of value beyond wear and tear.

            I'm just stating my view which appears to be backed up from sources other...

            If the tenancy ended and the lock was broken, it would be a loss in value beyond fair wear and tear and I'd expect the tenant to compensate the landlord for it.
            Same as any other damage.

            What's different about it during the tenancy?

            Yes, they have a duty of care but not the same responsibilities as a lease/freeholder.

            If I was the tenant, I'd refuse to pay. This is assuming I hadn't been grossly negligent and had reported the damage at the earliest opportunity to both the police and the landlord. I would expect a TDS...
