I really did not want to have to go the legal route, but after numerous attempts to get this straightened out with both the landlord and the owners, I have been left with no other choice. My wife and daughter don't deserve to be victims of this stupidity and ridiculousness, and I refuse to stand by while he attempts to put us out on the street.
I don't know if it's the same over there as it is here in the UK but for a landlord to actually be able to evict somebody, you have to default on the rent or show intentional damage/destruction of the property. With my limited knowledge, it seems like you have a very good legal case and the burden of proof is on the landlord to demonstrate that you have been in breach of any tenancy agreement. Hopefully, this'll be a warning to the landlord that you're not a fool and don't suffer fools gladly.
This thread is bringing back memories of my riding days a long time ago!
