Okay, I hate to do this, and I really hate sending out this email to
everyone like this but we are really screwed here.
We are currently staying in a one bedroom apartment that we found
through the grace of the Gods and have been here for the last several
years. Unknown to us, our landlord was purchasing it from another. Our
landlord defaulted on the payments and now we are being served eviction
papers. We JUST PAID RENT and he’s turning off the utilities come the
first of October. He refuses to refund the money we paid him for rent
since we have had a friend and her dogs living with us for the last two
months (four people, two dogs and one cat in a one bedroom apartment due
to necessity and circumstance).
So we are really screwed here. We just talked to the owner and he
agreed to give us the mandated 30 days written notice of eviction, but
the power and water and cable are going to be turned off this Saturday.
We are down to little cash due to having paid all the bills with the
expectation of being able to stay here another two weeks.
Legal options are not an option, no funds and the dates are way to short
for this. So here it is….
I’m begging for ANYTHING you can give us. I’m hoping that if I can
raise enough money I can give the owner a lump sum and have him allow us
to stay as long as we pay rent to him. But he’s asking $800 a month for
the next six months with no utilities then he will let us reduce the
payments to $500 a month after that. But we have to pay the association
fees and so on.
Basically unless we get a shitload of money FAST we are massive messed
over. Once again we trusted someone to take care of it and he didn’t
and that is what precipitated this. We trusted the landlord to deal
with this and to talk to the owner and fix this, but apparently not.
Please, my paypal account is linked to this address ( daven (at)
davensjournal.com ) and if you want to call us we are at [removed]. Just be ready for Mary to answer since she’s working and on
the clock. Since I also don’t know what you sound like, please tell us
who you are… (bit of levity there…)
This couldn’t have come at a worse time for us.
