Oh yea, I forgot to add that as soon as they find out they are evicted, I am getting a protective order against Chris. So if they do try something, he will just end up going back to jail.

I don't think we are going to move anymore, unless, after the 1st, they start something.

I'm so glad the landlord is doing something about this! Hope everything works out, and I think it's a great idea to get the restraining order.

I agree. I'd get a restraining order just to be on the safe side. That way, if something does happen, you will have already had the order in effect.
I guess I'm just paranoid about things like that though. Hopefully things will resolve themselves peacefully!

According to Canadian law, once a tenant has threatened to assault the landlord or another tenant they only have to give 24-hr notice that they must leave the premises permanently... otherwise they'd be able to stay at least 14 days from the notice of eviction.

You might want to bring that up with your landlord.

Wow thanks. I wish I would have known that when it happened. That was a week ago. I wonder if it would still count?

I would call your local prosecutor's office (called District Attorney, in our area) and ask their advice. This is the sort of thing that makes all of us law-abiding citizens so angry
You have a right to peace & clean air in your home!!! People like that make me mad

Well, I talked to my mom tonight and she thinks that even though those people are getting evicted, we should still move.

I really don't want to give this place up. It's in a good location, right beside a big park and schools, where I can walk my dog (well not for much longer unfortunately) and I can afford the rent and bills.

She just said that she was worried about the backlash. To be honest, the people upstairs are really unpredictable so I don't know how they'll react. I don't know if they'll blame us or what.

I was scared enough to move a week ago, but I think I'm rationalizing not moving to myself. I don't know what to do at this point.

If you feel in danger than perhaps even if they get evicted your best option is to move. I've gone through a similar situation involving of all people my own family. We had a disagreement they got verbally abusive and threatening.....went so far as to stalk my house since we lived nearby and make a false social services report on us.

Before they made the report they threatened it...so we had already begun plans to move. When social services showed as (we had expected they would even though we weren't told they had been called, if that makes sense)....we told them we had plans in the works to move due to being afraid of (of all people) my own family.

They didn't have a problem with it so here we are. We have since (and I'm talking in the last week), picked up and moved straight out of town, no, make that the whole state....we just moved....because it was the right thing to do for the safety of our family (and my sanity which is still on the rocks cause of the whole situation).

You want to be safe and if you feel as though your life or well being is in danger then the best thing you could do for yourself and your little darlings I see there in your siggy, is to get the heck out of dodge.

Well I have updates for you all on my situation.

The neighbors got their eviction notice a couple days ago and so far nothing has happened. In fact, they haven't done anything bad at all, including that they stopped smoking inside. I guess they just needed to find out they can't get away with stuff like they think they can.

They also have not said a word to me or anyone else and I don't think they blame us at all, which is great. I think they think that Heather(landlord) has wanted to evict them for a while, so it's been coming.

On the bad side, we got a new tenant agreement and I cannot have dogs anymore. So this past weekend, we took Gracie to DH's parents farm for her to run around on. She misses us, but she is a lot happier with free roam of that big yard. My son misses his "lil sister" It's hard, but this way atleast we can visit her a lot.

i dont know where your at but im not sure if theyy can do that if they have let u have animals in the past. like i said im not sure but might want to check into it.
post #42 of 44
Yes, that seems weird that they change the rules about dogs when you already have a dog..I would check to see if that is legal. I wouldn't get rid of my pets no matter what.

Your original lease should be binding as long as you stay there. They can prohibit you from getting new pets, but cannot make you get rid of the old ones.

Even if they sold the place, your original lease is what you go by, so No, they are not allowed to make you get rid of your dog if it was actually allowed in the first place. I do hope you didn't sign anything on this new tenant's agreement, because if you didn't they can't make you do anything about it.

Unfortunately they can. They only have to give written notice.They can issue whatever rules the want, but they have to give us a time period to adjust.

I didn't get rid of my dog, we just took her out to Kyle's parents house and she's coming to visit this weekend. They're going to keep her out there till I'm done school and then when we own our own house, she'll come back to living with us.

I don't have income, so I cannot be considered the main renter in the agreement. Dh is and she came and got him to sign it while I wasn't here. The part about pets states : No dogs; all other animals must have written consent from landlord.

If they go all commando and say no animals, that is a deal breaker and I'll move. I mean, if I wanted that, I could have stayed in the apartment with way cheaper rent and less bills.
