So, in addition to the whole sewer gas (aka the "Poop Pit" under our back porch) fiasco, the drainage issue and the flooding/sump issue we are having additional problems with the "partner" of our landlord. It started by him changing the due date from the 15th to the 1st and threatened eviction if it wasn't to him by the 1st. Our original contract is with our landlord and not the partner; unfortunately, our copy of the contract does not have the due date on it (but it was verbally agreed to by us and the landlord). Additionally, we are to have a 10-day grace period in which to get the payment to them, before they can pursue other methods of getting payment (eviction and suing us). We have been late (but within the 10 days) twice since we moved in (so the payment was there by the 25th) and it was never a problem until the partner took over the billing...now if it's one day past he threatens eviction. To add to all of this, the landlord sent Do3K a text that says, "You have to reimburse me _________ by June 1st for your utilities!" WE paid the bill last week, so we're not sure where this is coming from, unless *he* is keeping tabs on us through the utility dept (which I am not sure if it's legal for him to do or not, but I'm giving him the benefit of the doubt here). Additionally, I would think that he would call us and say, "Hey, I noticed your bill hasn't been paid this month. Are you needing some help? You can just reimburse me at the beginning of the month, when your rent is due." It was ignorant on his part to pay the bill without checking with us and for that reason I just want to say, "SCREW YOU! You paid it without checking, if you want your money go to the utility department!"

Do3K is a little afraid to stand up to the guy, because he's afraid he can evict us over any little thing. I've told him before he can't unless we are behind on our rent and even then he has to pursue legal methods of eviction (ie he can't just send a text saying, "If I don't have a payment next week you're gone!"). Which leads me to another point of irritation...as a landlord, I would think he would have more professional methods of communication than a text. I know it gives him "written documentation" of things, but it's called a letter and he should utilize it. Do3K doesn't text him when something is wrong with the house, he calls (which really doesn't matter since he lets things go anyway...like the flooded basement/sump issue, the drainage issue, and the poo pit/sewer gas issue)

I guess my question here is what is our recourse? I feel like he is bullying us when there is no reason to. I could understand if we were thousands of dollars behind and were just living here without paying, but we aren't. Our rent is paid up, our utilities are paid up, our gas bill isn't due until next Wed. Moving is not an option right now, even though I would *LOVE* to get away from him. In all honesty, what church you belong to is a huge thing where we live...if you're not of denomination XYZ, some people think they can treat you like crap. He belongs to denomination XYZ and we don't...I think he is using his "status" to be a bully I hate ignorant people.

Do you have a local housing authority you can contact? As a renter, you do have certain rights.

OK...you probably aren't going to like this, but...

You TWO need to sit down with the landlord and his partner and iron this out. There shouldn't be a good cop/bad cop dynamic going on. You two are in this together, right?

I find it incredibly hard to understand why your due date isn't listed on your lease.

TYPICALLY, rent/mortgage are due on the 1st of each month. There can be grace periods given, but the due date doesn't change. If there was something else agreed to, you should have had that in writing.

Landlords who hold mortgages on the property typically have a due date of the 1st on their mortgage. Every day that you go past that date in paying them, it adversely affects them as well, so he is completely within his right to get his money when due.

Leases should also have language regarding the steps to eviction. Check what yours says.

As to the utilities, who is responsible for them and whose name are they in? Your post is unclear on that, and to that end, don't expect any one to whom you owe money to ask you if they can help you. If they're in your name, they're your responsibility. Period.

ETA: As to communication in setting up the meeting, send a certified letter to the landlord requesting it, and I would list all the other issues with the property as well. That then becomes YOUR documentation.

I won't comment on the whole church thing, because that is something I've just not been able to understand from day one.

Bottom line here - set up a meeting and get these issues ironed out or start looking for other places if it's intolerable.

Do3K and I both thought it was listed in the lease, so it very well could be in the lease they have (ours was a copy without the blanks filled in and we filled them in the day that we took occupancy). At any rate, I don't care if they change the date; the problem is that he demanded the money on the 1st, without us being able to say, "When we first moved in R agreed to a 15th due date, but if it needs to be changed we can do that from June out" (it would have given us 1 1/2 months instead of two weeks to come up with two payments within two weeks of each other). The utilities are in *our* name and I've never expected him to pay them; he took it upon himself to do it without checking with us first. Like I said, we paid it last week, when I got paid. What I don't understand is why go in there and pay it for us...it's in our name, it's our bill, talk to us before you do anything. It's a little big brother-ish that he knew our bill had not been paid this month (which was due only a few days before he paid it). As far as the eviction process, it says they have to give us 30-days...again, his threats of evicting us within a week are more of a bully tactic than something that would hold up in court.

We never had a problem with the actual landlord...he was great, was always clear with communication if something needed to be changed, would call first if he needed to stop by for some reason, never made me feel like he was monitoring my every move. I will definitely request that *HE* also be at any meetings with his partner. His name is on the mortgage, not the partner.

In other words,

1) Check with your locality for their landlord-tenant legislation, if any

2) I'd suggest calling your landlord to set up a meeting between you, your H, the ll, and his partner to iron things out. Go the registered letter route if your phone call doesn't get the meeting.

3) Look around for a lawyer who works for tenants in your area.

4) How is texting a legal way to communicate contractual issues? It's insecure, and there's no fool-proof way of tracking the conversations.

5) You're right about eviction - it's a process that needs a court order.

6) It sounds like this guy is trying to get you out of the place - is he trying to sell it for redevelopment or to redevelop it himself?

7) What kind of document do you have? What does it say about each side's rights and responsibilities?

Good luck.

Sorry...seriously, I'm trying to understand here...

You signed a blank lease? I'm not getting how your copy says one thing and theirs another.

The utilities are in *our* name and I've never expected him to pay them; he took it upon himself to do it without checking with us first.

They're in your name and he paid them and apparently has access to them?

Makes. Absolutely. No. Sense.

sisoon, We didn't have any problem with him until we started bringing up the problems with the house. Now it's costing them around $5,000 to fix the current problems. There's no way they could do a redevelopment to this house...it's in a residential area on the main road through town.

I have tried very hard to be nice in the situation and lived with a sewer gas smell for over a year before Do3K finally smelled it. We are so stuck it's ridiculous...there are literally no houses or apartments for rent in our town and when something comes available it's either a 1-bed or very small. At this point, we'd move into a bigger 2-bed and make due just to get out of here

As far as rights, I need to look through our agreement again. All of our communication (from our end) has been done through phone calls. So, the closest thing I would have to show documentation would be old cell records showing the dates we called them to inform of the various problems.

http://www.in.gov/legislative/ic/2010/title32/ar31/

Here's what you need to look over first and for most.

just some tidbits....

Rent; refusal or neglect to pay
Sec. 6. If a tenant refuses or neglects to pay rent when due, a landlord may terminate the lease with not less than ten (10) days notice to the tenant unless:
(1) the parties otherwise agreed; or
(2) the tenant pays the rent in full before the notice period expires.
As added by P.L.2-2002, SEC.16.

This is where the 10 'grace' kicks in...but that has nothing to do with the fact that he can charge you whatever fees he wants until you pay.

IC 32-31-8-5
Landlord obligations
Sec. 5. A landlord shall do the following:
(1) Deliver the rental premises to a tenant in compliance with the rental agreement, and in a safe, clean, and habitable condition.
(2) Comply with all health and housing codes applicable to the rental premises.
(3) Make all reasonable efforts to keep common areas of a rental premises in a clean and proper condition.
(4) Provide and maintain the following items in a rental premises in good and safe working condition, if provided on the premises at the time the rental agreement is entered into:
(A) Electrical systems.
(B) Plumbing systems sufficient to accommodate a reasonable supply of hot and cold running water at all times.
(C) Sanitary systems.

Yeah....the landlord needs to look into this before he starts legal battles.

IC 32-31-8-6
Tenant's cause of action to enforce landlord obligations
Sec. 6. (a) A tenant may bring an action in a court with jurisdiction to enforce an obligation of a landlord under this chapter.
(b) A tenant may not bring an action under this chapter unless the following conditions are met:
(1) The tenant gives the landlord notice of the landlord's noncompliance with a provision of this chapter.
(2) The landlord has been given a reasonable amount of time to make repairs or provide a remedy of the condition described in the tenant's notice. The tenant may not prevent the landlord from having access to the rental premises to make repairs or provide a remedy to the condition described in the tenant's notice.
(3) The landlord fails or refuses to repair or remedy the condition described in the tenant's notice.
(c) This section may not be construed to limit a tenant's rights under IC 32-31-3, IC 32-31-5, or IC 32-31-6.
(d) If the tenant is the prevailing party in an action under this section, the tenant may obtain any of the following, if appropriate under the circumstances:
(1) Recovery of the following:
(A) Actual damages and consequential damages.
(B) Attorney's fees and court costs.
(2) Injunctive relief.
(3) Any other remedy appropriate under the circumstances.
(e) A landlord's liability for damages under subsection (d) begins when:
(1) the landlord has notice or actual knowledge of noncompliance; and
(2) the landlord has:
(A) refused to remedy the noncompliance; or
(B) failed to remedy the noncompliance within a reasonable amount of time following the notice or actual knowledge;
whichever occurs first.
As added by P.L.92-2002, SEC.2.

Here is what you can do as well.

This came from my connection at the Law School

Eviction Suit

If your landlord decides to try to evict you, he or she must go to court and file a "complaint for eviction." This is usually filed in small claims court. You will be served with a copy of the complaint. It may be sent by certified mail or the sheriff may deliver it to you or leave it at your residence. The complaint will state the reasons eviction is being sought and the amount of money claimed, and will set a date for you to appear in court. You should get at least five days notice before the hearing. If you do not, you may ask the court for a continuance. Often, the suit will be dismissed if the rent owed, together with any late fees due and court costs, is paid before the court hearing. Be sure to go to court at the scheduled time! This is your opportunity to present any defenses to the landlord's claim. If at all possible, consult SLS as soon as you receive the court papers. Even better, consult SLS before receiving papers if you think they're going to be filed.

Eviction trials are often conducted in two parts. The first hearing, called the eviction hearing, is simply to determine whether you should be ordered to leave the apartment. A second hearing, to determine whether you owe the landlord money, and if so, the amount, is usually held at a later date. If you have already moved out of the apartment by the date of the eviction hearing, however, the judge may go ahead and hear evidence on the issue of money.

owed ("damages" in legal jargon) at that time. At the eviction hearing, the landlord will first present evidence about your alleged breach of the lease. You or your attorney will have a chance to question the landlord about his or her case. Next, you will be given the opportunity to present evidence as to why you should not be evicted. If you have documents, photos, or any other information that shows that you did not violate the lease or, if you did, that the violation was minor, be sure to bring it with you to the hearing. You can also bring witnesses. If a witness is reluctant to come to the hearing, but you think he or she has important information, the clerk's office can help you subpoena the witness. If the judge orders that you should be evicted, you will probably be given a few days in which to move. Because you won't have much time to find a new place, begin looking for one the moment you think eviction is a possibility. Even if you are evicted, you can still minimize the amount of money you are required to pay the landlord by cleaning the rental unit and following the joint exit inspection procedure described earlier in this pamphlet. Document the condition of the apartment with photographs or have a disinterested party look at it, to avoid being hit with excessive cleaning or repair charges at the damages hearing.


ETA:

The trailer that we moved from tried to pull the 'pay this bill' crap with us too. Apparently they changed the name back into their name before we ever moved out, and then tried to charge us for it.

We told them that since they took it upon themselves to take back the utilities, then we saw that as a Gift and gifts do not need to be repaid.

Same applies here. If the utilites are IN YOUR NAME, and he choose to pay them for you....that is a gift, and gifts do not get repaid.

You signed a blank lease? I'm not getting how your copy says one thing and theirs another.

They had their copy that they kept and had a copy for us. We filled in the lease as we were talking about each section (due date, pet deposit, initial here that you agree to these terms, etc). I am guessing that Do3K just didn't put the due date on ours, as we were discussing a due date...literally, it the sentence says, "Rent will be due on ______ of the month." There is an actual _____ that is to be filled in.

The utilities are in *our* name and I've never expected him to pay them; he took it upon himself to do it without checking with us first.
They're in your name and he paid them and apparently has access to them?

Makes. Absolutely. No. Sense.

EXACTLY! I feel like he has tabs on us somehow. Do3K has tried to reach the partner with no return call or text. I am going to be calling the utility department to see if they can tell me anything. If I find out they "shared" our information, I will have to do additional searching to see if that's even legal.

Let's see...
(1) Deliver the rental premises to a tenant in compliance with the rental agreement, and in a safe, clean, and habitable condition.-Broke this by not taking care of the sewer smell 12 months ago, by not fixing the flooding basement problem, and by not fixing the drainage (ILLEGAL) drainage problem.

(2) Comply with all health and housing codes applicable to the rental premises.-Again, broken in relation to the poop pit.

(3) Make all reasonable efforts to keep common areas of a rental premises in a clean and proper condition.-See above

(4) Provide and maintain the following items in a rental premises in good and safe working condition, if provided on the premises at the time the rental agreement is entered into:
(A) Electrical systems.-Yep, the DID do this when their electrical system blew out the computer of my old stove AND the landlord replaced my stove too. They get one point...
(B) Plumbing systems sufficient to accommodate a reasonable supply of hot and cold running water at all times.-No problems with supply of hot and cold water. They get one more point.
(C) Sanitary systems.-Yeah, again, see above. Poop pit resulted from sewage problems.

(2) The landlord has been given a reasonable amount of time to make repairs or provide a remedy of the condition described in the tenant's notice. The tenant may not prevent the landlord from having access to the rental premises to make repairs or provide a remedy to the condition described in the tenant's notice.-Is over a year reasonable amount of time? Also, they have access to our house 24/7, so yeah...

(3) The landlord fails or refuses to repair or remedy the condition described in the tenant's notice.-Again, they did not remedy or repair in a reasonable amount of time.

If the utilites are IN YOUR NAME, and he choose to pay them for you....that is a gift, and gifts do not get repaid.

You know, I don't even have a problem paying him back if the utility department credits our bill for the amount and we don't have to pay next month. I'm not unreasonable...I'll work with him on it, but I hope it serves as a lesson for him.

Edited to change this to next

Thanks for the info. The guy may think he won't have to fix the house if he can get you out. I hope you can get the guy you dealt with and his partner to see a sensible way to work this out.

Wellll, they will end up fixing all of it one way or another. If they don't fix it correctly within the next two weeks *I* am turning the "illegal" problem, that should have been fixed over the winter, into the State Highway Dept. The poop pit is currently under construction and my entire back porch is unusable. The basement flooding problem is the only thing I could not do something about, but if our actual landlord is involved it will get done correctly.

Also, thank you everyone for your help! It is very appreciated! Do3K is giving the partner an hour to call or text...if we hear nothing, we are going to be calling big landlord. I feel like big landlord is the Daddy that is going to make "us kids" get along

Mama.. I'd look into that bill thing. I know here my husband has to be listed on the account if it's in my name or they won't tell him anything at all. He could go in and make a payment but they wouldn't even be able find out what the balance was without my consent.
I've worked for utility companies. At least here, it's covered by privacy laws and I was NOT allowed to give anyone info unless they were specifically authorized on the account. So someone dropped the ball there.

Mama, I've had my share of "do nothing landlords so I can empathize with your sitch. We had one who was more interested in what color the walls were than if the place was up to code (it wasn't). What repairs were done were half-assed if not downright hazards (one place's fuse box was so jury-rigged it was a fire hazard. Power HAD to be shut off).

On the other end of the spectrum, the last landlord we had before the current one was the best one we had in over 20 years. We had a problem, it was fixed ASAP. First problem I had was a plumbing problem - the toilet kept overflowing - landlord had it fixed in less than a week. Next major one was the furnace. Blowers wouldn't kick on. He looked at it, couldn't fix it so he had it replaced (it was a 35 year old Delco furnace). In the mesntime, he lent me a space heater. He even fixed little stuff, more irritant than problem. Like my mailbox. It kept falling of the exterior wall. I mentioned it to him and found him fixing it when I came home from work. *That* really impressed me. Too bad this partner of your landlotd isn't like that, huh?

Our landlord is much like your current landlord, Clarrissa. Unfortunately, he fell ill over the winter and things have been difficult since (when we started dealing with the partner).

After reading through the series of text messages, we think we know what is going on. We *think* the landlord has a "back-up" on all of his rentals to be informed when someone is behind (even if it's a few days). The partner went in to turn electricity on at a place and found out that ours was behind (again, I don't know for sure that this system of "being in the know" is even legal, but I digress). I think his, "You owe me money!" was a scare tactic to get us to pay it because AFTER Do3K said that we had paid it last week his tone changed (said, "Okay, let me know what day you paid it for sure.") Do3K sent him the text with the amount and we've not heard from him since. I called the utility dept and he has NOT paid on our account b/c it's not showing a credit on our account (and it would be if he paid it, because our next month's bill has not been processed yet). I am not happy and we are going to be setting a time to meet with them.
