I am due to go to an eviction hearing due to non payment of rent. This I had done as the Landlord would not repair and sort out major issues on the property which has resulted in excessively high utilities bills and furthermore damage to household electronics on an ongoing basis. the stopping of rent was what i hopped would get them to repair since every time I paid nothing would get done. there was a sort of negotiation brought forward where I had done improvements on the property that they said they would offset but now they are proceeding with eviction. I submitted slips and bank statements to their lawyer which is more than the value of rent owing and in this time have also found myself without work. I’m due in court on Wednesday and need urgent advice or help please.
