I almost never get involved in tenant issues, but I have a great tenant that does a LOT around her apt house. She has some chronic health problems that will not be going away. She has no income because not being able to work, Not eligible for unemployment and on the section 8 list but that takes years to get here.
So she says she has been trying to get disability,,,(I would say that if anyone deserves it, she does) She has sold almost everything she owns to pay her rent..
So she says that she has a lawyer that required her to sign a contract that she can't be released from this contract involving her case. Well its been years with out any results. She keeps saying that there is nothing she can do. I can't believe she is trapped in this situation w/o any tool to release her from this situation. She doesn't have the resources to hire another lawyer to combat the 1st one.
I told her to contact our state senator, The state attorney general and the state Bar Association as something to try, But she seems to think , because what her lawyer has said that the contract is iron clad and he won't let her out and that her case is in a final appeal.
I do want to help her but I can't sustain her living their for long with out rent. .(this is NOT anything I would extend to any other tenant, and again, I couldn't do it for long) I think she is about the end of her rope of selling her belongings. Any ideas? Have you ever heard of a lawyer having a contract that you can't leave him no mater how he seems incompetent or takes an excessive amount of time etc?
