My Fight With My Landlord by specialofficer: 11:33pm On Sep 20, 2023
I have been having some issues in my room, I live with my mum and sister , it's a 3 bedroom flat, we pay 1.4m yearly and we've paid 3 times, last payment was in may.

My landlord increased the pressure point of our water in the compound and now water gas been leaking, pipes got burst in the wall and water has been coming out from walls and pop, I started complaining last month but they didn't do anything about it, it got to a point when the water was too much in my room, I wanted to get my landlords attention so I had to spoil our pumping machine and I brought out all the dirts in our dustbin, I acknowledge my mistakes but it was out of anger.

My landlord confronts me and we got into an argument and we insulted each other, I know i was wrong but if I didn't spoil that pumping machine, the landlord wouldn't have called plumber to repair the issues I was having in my room, I even discovered that i wasn't the only one experiencing such thing, my neighbors too were also having that same issues.

According to my landlord, he said he's not the one collecting money from us, we paid money to agent and if we have any issues we should contact the agent, this particular agent is his elder brother but this my landlord is living in our compound with us, though he has numerous houses.

Now my landlord said he doesn't want to see me again in his compound and has threatened my mum with quit notice, he said it's either I leave the house or my family would leave , he instructed the gateman not to open gate for me again or else he'll sack him. My fellow nairalanders I really need your help, how will I go about this?

Modified; The landlord threatened to call police if he ever sees me in his compound, he said he'll win me in court and it's malicious damage to his property, mind you, there's no evidence that I committed the offence, our gateman was the only eye witness.

Two wrongs don't make a right...
You shouldn't have damaged the pumping machine...
No matter what, always involve the services of the Police...
As regard your banning from entering the house, your landlord has no right to restrict your movement..
Infact he has no right chase u out of the house..
If you are in lagos, you are entitled to "Six(6) months quit notice" after your rent expires or he refund your remaining rent and still give you the quit notice...
Or you carry police arrest am..

I can't arrest the man,he has money, he has more than 5 houses and you know how Nigeria is, na person wey get money dey win case, if we're to leave the compound by quit notice, yeah he'll give us 6 months to leave but the problem now is the house is really good, big parlour, new house, security and all those stuffs, we won't be able to see a house with that standard and price, that's why my people are scared of the quit notice, now another problem is because they're women, it would have been another thing if they were men, they wouldn't be scared.


I know I made a mistake by spoiling the machine, it was just because of anger, but I'm sure the landlord's threat was an empty one but my mum and sis are just scared, the man can't afford to lose 6 months rent, that's over 700k

What make's you think the landlord'll not give you quit notice, and are you happy been chase away like a kid.
Bro you'd done the mistake and the best way is to amend it but from writeup this said landlord is so determined to deal with you.. Imagine chasing you out of house you're renting is not quite funny to me and since you don't want to challenge him and don't want to leave the house then your mother is there involve 1 or 2 people plus ur mother and make peace with him and repair what you spoiled.

So from all indications, you aren't the one who rented the house, because if you were the one they rented it to, the landlord wouldn't have done such.

But there again, i advise you seek counsel from your lawyer, just get a lawyer involved.

I don't get. Why did you do such a mean thing? You destroyed his pumping machine and also desecrated his compound. He is right to eject you cos you are a ticking time bomb. Your excuse Is anger but you didn't think that you could have also fixed the anomaly and deduct your expense from the next rent? Or better still reach out to the agent when he wasn't forthcoming? I fear you.

The landlord is right to eject you and if i am thr landlord I won’t take any form of begging. It is very obvious from your write up that you are a gen Z that is just opportuned to carry dreadlocks and and iPhone thinking you can destroy someone’s properties and get away with it because your fellow genZ told you not to act calm. You are a ticking time bomb and i see you murdering someone in the nearest future. I applaud the landlord for keeping his calm and ejecting you respectfully. You see these youngsters coming up now stay away from them if you like your peace.

Loool, he's even nice to tell you alone to leave and didn't get you arrested immediately for damage to property and immediate refund for a new pump.


Some tenants will just frustrate you ehn. You spoilt a whole pumping machine, even insulted him on top of it.

He will get you arrested for damage to property if you show up.

Category of tenants from hell, just imagine what a landlord had to deal with.
