Landlord filed suit against me unpaid rent, July 2012-may 2013. Landlord did not follow terms of our signed rental agreement, utilities were to be included mid-stream landlord decided she could not do that and stopped paying util. Left them for me with no change in rental cost. Can't afford lawyer, 1St day in court scheduled (pre-trial) Aug 16. Will have to represent self. Need advice on how to proceed.
