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.

Just get someone close to him in uoir area to make peace between both of you

Wetin dey vex the landlord no be the pump u spoil, na the insult u give am. Imagine heaping insults on ur landlord In front of the gateman and other neighbors when you are not the one paying for the rent. 99percent of landlords won't forgive easily.
Go with ur mom to the eld bro and start begging from there, maybe the eld bro might help to beg the landlord who is his jnr. Who told u he can't forgo 700k😂. There are people that can bear the loss of a million naira but can't bear insults thrown at them.

There is nothing like free 6months anywhere, if he is having 10months left, the landlord gives 6months notice, he will only get a refund for 4months and must pack out at the 6th month end, if he wants to live immediately, he is entitled to the 10months rent, if he uses a day plus with the 6months after he has gotten a refund, he must pay the landlord for the extra day.
@op, you are not the tenant from your narrative, the man is right to send you out of his premises for damage to his property, thank God he no carry you go station, you for learn the hard way.
Btw, go with an elderly person and your mum to apologize to him, he knows you are the son of his tenant and sincerely knows it's not entirely possible to banished you from seeing your family in his premises, so it's something that can be sorted.

I am sure you are not a Lawyer. Please stop advising on what you don't know about.

The Length of Notice a Tenant is entitled to is dependent on the Terms of the Tenancy Agreement but where the Tenancy Agreement doesn't provide for the Length of Notice, then the Law provides for 6 Months Notice (in the Ops case).

Note that the Quite Notice can be issued when the Tenancy is still running and even if it is issued after the tenancy have expired, it is not free and the Landlord can still recover it if he wishes.

First thing first, you shouldn't have tampered with the pumping machine. Since you did tamper with the pumping machine and the gate man saw you, then this isn't good for you.

Who did he rent the apartment to? Since he's saying he doesn't want to see you in his house, it looks like it's your mum. All the same, if you're a dependant, you should get a lawyer also and be ready to slug it out with him.

It is his house doesn't mean he has the right to say who he wants in your house and who he doesn't want. Just be ready to tackle him and be ready to take up the matter in court and also report to the Police.

Re: My Fight With My Landlord by TheBillyonaire: 2:40pm On Sep 21, 2023
Your landlord installed a pressure pump for water to flow better, the pressure was excessive hence the pipe blow out.

You have right to live in a house your parent have paid for. Your rent has not expired so he can not quit you until the expiration. Even if he goes to court, you can deny all the charges.

Apologize to him and if he does not allow you into the compound, simply proceed with legal action. Do not go to police, because it is a civil case. Get a lawyer to file a court action with just 1000 naira and get him to magistrate court. He will calm down.

He is denying you access to enjoying the privileges that your mother has paid for thereby exposing you to danger by denying you of your legitimate to lay your head.

The man is not going to lose a dime. Your QUIT NOTICE started counting as your RENT is going on.

You are a trouble maker. Bible says give honour to whom honour is due to. The Landlord lives in the house and you have the gut to damage the pumping machine and still confront the man . A man who is wealthier and far better than you and your family. You are a big threat to him and you don't have option rather than to leave the house. If that man is a military man or a senior police officer can you do such? This is how many of you die young. Imagine what you said, a very good house with good facilities and cheap within your neighborhood for the price. Maintain peace till you will completely pack out. There is no amount the man can not spend on your head to deal with you. Go and sort yourself out!
