I lived with my 13 & 14 year old children, and due to recent budget cuts to HUD I was forced to down-size from a 3 bdrm to a 2 bdrm, unless I could pay the rent increase which was to go from $144. to $741. per month. Being on a fixed monthly income of 1000., I knew I would not be able to pay the rent, so I was given a 30 day notice to terminate my tenancy. During my move, I informed the landlord that I had no more room in my 20x20 storage space for my property, but that I would return for the remainder of my things.
