I will try to make this brief. I called a lawyer, he told me to send the manager a letter 'request for more time, reasonable accomodation.' I did it. She ignored it. I ran around like crazy hiring people to get the boxes out and place cleaned up. The lawyer said 30 days was 'reasonable accomodation' in his experience and that granted by the court. That is what I asked for and did not get.
Manager did not respond, so the lawyer said send another copy. I did, by email. This time, 2 days before the time limit was up (I am sure this awful woman knew I had called a lawyer) she wrote back 'how much more time do you need?' I didn't even get it til the 7 days was up, I was too busy trying to get the boxes out and place cleaned up, which I did, having to hire a crew and spend a small fortune. When I called the manager, she claimed she had answered my first request and claimed she had proof (BS). She liked how the apartment looked and said all was fine. However, the 7 day notice included a section that should I violate the lease again within 6 months, she could throw me out without giving me a chance to fix it as she did this time.
As I posted in the NDN problems, I hired a mover to help me who told me she'd done even worse to another tenant, threw her out after a month and called the police and Fire Marshall on her while she was moving, apparently trying to get her in trouble. As the mover told me, the MANAGER was cited by the Fire Marshall for wasting their time (I forget the official wording.)
I told the manager I would get sick if she made me do all this so fast and I did. I got pneumonia, about which I am VERY upset now. Really, a landlord should not have the right to kill a tenant for any reason.
When I was well enough/had time to get my mail, I found a letter from the City stating someone (I wonder who) filed a 'Trash and Weeds' complaint on me and please clean it up. I called the City and they said that usually goes to the manager of a complex, not an apartment dweller and they had no idea why it was sent to my apartment and that no, my rosebushes etc on my balcony were not considered 'trash and weeds.' They said I could come to the City Clerk's office to see who filed the complaint and I will when better and have time. My guess is the manager was T'd off I called a lawyer and did this in retaliation. So on top of being a Nazi b*tch, she is a put down artist too. Since when are rose bushes 'a blight' and 'weeds.'
Before I moved in here, I did ask the tenants how they liked it, as I normally do and thought it strange they all said 'it's OK.' But no one said anything bad, so I figured 'ok' was good enough. I later read the lease (to find out what I did that was grounds for eviction in not unpacking fast enough) and it is in the lease the 'badmouthing' the complex is grounds for eviction. Had I had more time/seen that to start with, I never would have moved in here. I do not think it is legal to do that (violates First Amendment - free speech) and further, anyone who has nothing to hide would not put that in there. Too late now. I was working on getting a condo and had been pre-approved when some other nasty person messed up the deal. I was still working on that, sick or not (making phone calls) when I got a letter from CA to come to an open house this Friday (2 days from now) from a wait list I have been on. I plan to go, but since I am so sick, am not looking forward to it as I normally would. All this is wearing me down. I did have hopes of getting the CA apartment at first, but now am so sick and harassed, can barely think straight.
NM has the #1 crime and poverty rate in the country and is tops in nearly everything bad. Some people love it here; I would strongly discourage anyone from ever moving to this state. They don't call it 'Land of Entrapment' for nothing. I have wanted to leave after being here 6 months and it has been near 10 years now.
That is where things are now.
