We are having a serious problem with the neighbors where we rent. Property management is dragging their feet. They have issues a 7 day notice for them to get out but they can stay until the eviction process is complete -- essentially for months. To make a long story short the police have been here twice Restraining orders are filed and the fire department came over a serious issue. It is not a good situation.
Since property management is dragging their feet, we are considering legal action against property management since our personal property as been destroyed and we are constantly being harassed.
Western Mass Legal Aid - a free legal service is booked for months on end before they will even hear our issues and do the legal work. We cannot afford a lawyer.
How dowe find a sliding scale or pro bono lawyer outside of the volunteer community law centers that are overbooked?
We are good tenants, we pay rent on time, we keep to ourselves, keep the property clean and are quiet. Unfortunately our lease is up June 2013.
