Missouri Landlord Terminates Lease Off What Neighbors Are Saying?

Question by : Missouri Landlord terminates lease off what neighbors are saying?
am a single mother of a 3 year old son. I have lived in my apartment for over a year and a half. I received a letter from the office stating that I had unauthorized occupants residing in my apartment and I had 48 hours to remove everyone. I have never had anyone living with me. I immediately went up to the office to talk with my landlord. She tells me that she knows because the neighbors have told her so. I offered her to come and check out my apartment. She declined. She wouldn’t listen to anything I had to say and ended up shutting the office door in my face. A couple days later I receive another letter this time from a law office stating that I have to be out by October 31, 2011. How can it be legal for her to evict me off of what other people are saying? I have been cooperative and was open for her to come see for herself. I looked at my lease and no where does it state the # of days a guest can stay before notifying the landlord. The letter states that I violated section 23 of my lease. I looked over my lease and it states my lease will be terminated if I am using illegal drugs. Abuse alcohol. Involved in criminal activity etc. I have never brought any problems to the complex. I keep a clean home. I am very quiet. Never had the police to my apartment. I live here with just my son and I take pride in my home. I feel that I have no way violated my lease. I feel that the landlord has. It says that the landlord promises to keep facilities in safe condition, Make necessary repairs with reasonable promptness. I am living in an unsafe living environment and I have contacted the office since I first moved in about the problems in my home. I live on the bottom level and my ceiling leaks every time it rains. The paint off the ceiling was falling off and it is ruining my furniture and carpet. I have black mold in my apartment. My bathroom leaks water from the tub. Many of my electrical outlets do not work. My exterior lighting does not work. The office lost the set of their keys to my apartment and it took months for them to change my locks and notify me that someone may have my keys. I am in fear to go outside because of the people that stay around me. The police are constantly here. There is so much drug activity going on in this complex its ridiculous. I am in fear to have my friends and family come over. I have no job and no car. I have a 3 year old son. I have nowhere to go. I cannot and should not have to move! I need some advice I am not sure where to start! I have ten days to set up a meeting with the landlord. Thanks~!

If you have no lease, they can ask you to vacate with 30 days notice and they don’t need a reason. When did your lease expire?

If you feel they have no proof of their accusation, go to court and fight it.
