I got a notice yesterday that I am being sued by my former landlord over my mother's estate. And they want me in court this week. No time to prepare, no time to really do anything. They are trying to force me to pay for the lot rent on the mobile home for the months I have NOT been living here, even though I gave them more than thirty days written notice that I was moving out. I don't own it and I'm not in charge of my mother's estate. They just want to pin the lot rent on someone since the property has been vacant since the end of March. I'm going in with no legal representation. My lawyer said it's a waste of money for him to go. He said to just bring the copy of the letter I sent giving notice I moved and the receipt I have from the movers. And I can prove they were paid up until I moved out. What scares me is, I'm going in there with CFIDS. My judgment is SEVERELY impaired from this disease. I get audio processing disorder. If I don't understand a question or I have to ask them to repeat a question, I don't want them to think I'm trying to be in contempt of court. I really have a problem with people speaking to me. I am so scared of what will happen. If they win this judgment, it's like saying a landlord can force anyone to continue paying rent after they move for the rest of their lives. If I lose, they will put on my credit report that I didn't pay rent, thereby destroying any future chance I have of ever living anywhere else. And they can enforce the judgment and pull money out of my account if I don't file for bankruptcy in time. My lawyer seems confident we will file before then, but I am scared. So, it's not like I'm going in to court alone, I'm going in with CFIDS eating away at my brain and no one will care in that courtroom. And they can't see how sick I am. I hope I can even make it over there that day.
