Ok so I've never seen this happen before... (I was a property manager for 10 years seen over 150 evictions ( I hated that part!!! Which is why I know what they're doing!)... but I see today as a victory. Well first off I held myself together up until about 2,3 pm given the hearing was at 4. In all 10 years, I've also never seen an attorney talk to tenants the way this man did (he was the kind out to purposely be a dick) My therapist - my amazing therapist was there as a witness of him telling me he "gave" those two weeks when the case was continued. Umm, no there was a family emergency and the continuance motion mentions it. He told me that because of that, and that I hadn't moved (I told him I had no where to go or trust me I would've) that he was going to "make sure to get the writ today so I'd have to be out Monday or Tuesday) Nice guy. Basically trying to bully me - that's what my therapist said he was doing. I told him no thanks that I wanted to go before a judge. Had to tell him twice.... You all would've been so proud!! lol! So I won't go into everything but one big thing was that the Property Manager who signs and delivers the 3 day notices wasn't there. The maintenance guy was instead. Usually the Property Manager or management HAS to be with the attorney because they testify the delivery of the 3 day notice. I asked where the property manager was since she was the one who had given me the 3 day notice - they said that she had resigned Monday. This is key because the property manager had been the one who had told me she had accepted the emergency rent voucher from another tenant just in March. But didn't accept my voucher - because she couldn't testify. Well thank GOD I had the letter from Jobs and Family Services showing that the property had refused - and it was entered into evidence. (This is very rare - usually an eviction is wham bam, 3 questions asked, you're out) I explained to the judge that they had a history of accepting rent late in the past, they were offered the rent and they refused, my son was ran over in one of their parking lots so I think that has a LOT to do with this) that they knew of his previous disabilities, and they knew of mine - they PTSD, the credit card fraud that left me unable to pay the rent, and that they had a history of taking someone else's voucher in the recent past. I think that I obviously had some good defenses (these were ones that the legal aid lawyer gave me) because this NEVERRRRRRR happens in eviction court. Very very rare. So now I will find out what the decision is by mail. Guessing it could me mid week. If a Magistrate saw something fishy in all this, the Judge might too. I'm praying that God goes before us in the coming week. It's a good thing I hadn't committed myself or finished it all because either something I did, or God did, the apartment but it worked out in my favor instead. At least I'll have some peace this weekend. Thank you all for your prayers! They must be working There could be light here.
