  •  In my fight, no, I did not end up paying rent. (1+ / 0-)

    The landlord ended up owing me money because I counter-sued for rent abatement, back to when the code violations began.

    Idiot landlord should have stayed out of court, and just done his duty as a landlord, and I would have paid rent up to date and in full.

    •  Idiot landlord wrote me a letter claiming (0+ / 0-)

      victory along with the check he had to send me.

      What kind of idiot claims victory when they sue you for (a lot of) money but end up owing you money?

      A: a professional slumlord.

      Takes time and effort to form a good strong Tenant's Union, and to get laws passed, but it's worth it.
