'Take 1.5 month's rent from me? Lose a year's rent!': Landlord tries to evict tenant to turn his apartment into an office, tenant uncovers scheme

However, every so often in a landlord-tenant dispute, the tenant comes out on top, and it's usually because of two reasons. The first is that the tenant was admirably relentless in their pursuit of at least some semblance of justice. The second is that the landlord was clumsy and incompetent. This tenant was kicked out of their apartment wrongfully because the landlord's wife wanted to use that…

Lawyer manipulates greedy commercial landlord into voiding his own contract: 'I know you were behind this'

Lawyers taking on landlords sounds like it's one of those franchise spinoff film in which two villains from different franchises take on each other to see who is the biggest and baddest baddie out there. You're not even really sure why they're feuding, but that's really beside the point of these types of films. You know, something along the lines of Alien vs. Predator, Freddy vs. Jason, or Godzilla vs. Kong , there's certainly a precedent for these kinds of crossovers and Landlord vs. Lawyer de…
