Legal Question

Asked on: 7/05/13, 6:26 pm

In 2007 I moved into my mothers house due to ill health. She still owned it but lost it to foreclosure in Nov 2007 and rented it from the new owner. We comingled funds in my bank account and between both of us paid the rent-I signed all the checks. The roof began to leak so we alerted the landlord but he told us it would have to wait until the following summer-this went on until her death in 2013. Six long wet moldy years. The landlord then wanted to evict me because I could not pay all the rent three days after her death. The bank account had been frozen for 45 days. He served me a ud and as the process went on I requested a jury trial so that I could show a jury the house damage from the water and mold. The landlords attorney received a partial summary judgement, What can I do. One of the leaking rooms was my bedroom and i had to sleep on the floor in the only dry area there was- a corner. Do I have any recourse or does the landlord get away with charging a huge amount of money for a rental that a large area of which we were forced to deal with tons of water and mold. Can I stop my eviction in court. Alameda county, ca
