PLEASE TAKE NOTICE of Federal and “Case Law” not known to the average person which prevents eviction of “Disabled-Tenants” who request “reasonable accommodation” in eviction when their Landlord is evicting them because of their “Disability.” This rule of law applies to all Disabilities whether Physical or Mental such as Major Depressive Disorder (Depression, Bi-Polar), PTSD, and Anxiety Disorder, etc.Of course the Tenant’s rent must be up-to-date, or if not up-to-date “Lawfully Withheld” from the Landlord for the Landlord’s failure to comply with Local or State Housing Codes such as not repairing or providing heat, or not repairing broken doors and plumbing for example. Read the “Landlord’s Obligations” under the Landlord and Tenant Act in Your home State.
This Federal or Case Law applies to both Private and Public Housing providers. However, it may not apply to Housing Providers with less than 5 Units such as someone renting you a room in their home or when you rent an apartment in a duplex or triplex.
Disabled Veterans who cannot afford an Attorney should contact their nearest Legal Aid Office or other Non-Profit Legal Organizations in their area for Free Legal Advice and Representation in Court, and to file in Federal or State Court for a “Court Order” temporarily or permanently stopping the eviction.
