Can a landlord verbally threaten to evict you based on a disagreement of your not wanting to pay for the removal of storm shutters on the property?
Question Details: For example, the tenant does not want to pay for removal of storm shutters but the landlord says that it's the tenant's responsibility. The tenant disagrees and says it's the landlord's responsibility as the owner. The landlord then said please submit your notice to vacate.
You cannot be evicted for something that is not a breach of the lease. If evicted for something that is not a breach of the lease,this is retaliatory eviction for which you can sue the landlord.
If the lease says nothing about a tenant paying for removal of storm shutters, you have a good argument for retaliatory eviction.
