      what if the landlord lost the rent money and penelize you late fees and non-payment. What can I do?

    2. AldrichLegal Says:

      Did the landlord provide you with a receipt upon payment of the rent? If they did then your obligation theoretically ends there. If they did not then it becomes an issue if the landlord claims they never received it. A Defense to an eviction is upon the turning over of your rent to the landlord you have fulfilled your obligation. If the landlord loses the rent that you gave them, the loss or replacement is on their shoulders.

      My landlord never signed the lease, but gave us the only copy. She is trying to get us to pay for utilities which is 750. She is trying to combine the water bill from another house and make us pay for it. The rent is 450, but the water bill from another house is 300, which explains why there is 750 to pay each month. Now that I am disputing the case, she is trying to blame the house damages on me. The lease says that I am not liable for fixing the damages.
