I rented an apartment in March when I moved in I discovered the house was leaking water all over the places according to landlord he said more than 30 places but I think it was around 10 places.

We agreed he will refund me house rent and agreement and I left immediately in April.

This is 4 months he has rented the house still refused to refund me.

Every time from one story to another he has more than 6 shops he has 2 story building yet he said no money business is not moving.

Get evidence of your payment via transfer . If na cash you pay, him go deny if him no give you receipt. Meet human right police , Dem go detain am and charge to court if him no wan pay you. Other option , report to God or call ur village oracle.

Iddiot girl. Why insert the "we are both Igbos"? Was this thread created to bash Igbos further?

check if someone else has taken the apartment, if yes

bring soldier or police

he's meant to pay you from the new rent not from his business or personal pocket

A friend of mine had reason to leave his rented lagos apartment after 2 month into 12-month rent, immediate someone else packed in he refunded his porated rent


Didn't u read what he wrote up there ? Some of u can be terribly annoying

Move and arrest the landlord or if your state has Rent Tribunal, locate it.

We are both igbos is the reason the country is backward. If the landlord was from another tribe, i am sure you would have found a solution before coming to NL. You better report the issue to appropriate authority and forget the tribe of a thing.

Re: How To Handle A Wicked Landlord please help by galantjoe(m): 7:53pm On Aug 22, 2023
Forget that money to save your life. Many landlords are wicked and they can do anything to harm you in order not to eat.

Save your life.

You did not exercise due care before paying for the house. The legal maxim "Caveat emptor" had exonerated the landlord from any liability. By evicting yourself, you have relinquish your right of possession

Cmanforall:


Owning a property does not make one wicked.

This tenant would have negotiated with the landlord.
He would have suggested that the landlord should repair the leaking areas with specified duration. And one or 2 month rent (depending on the costs) for next year will be deducted

OP...
How much is the rent?

You said my thought

That tenant did not exercise due care and this that legal maxim caveat emptor exonerate the landlord

Go-to office of public defender in surulere and report him. If it's not within their jurisdiction they will refer you to citizen mediation centre yaba to take up the case.


I did that to my mad landlord last year and he respected himself
