Retaliation/harassment

Ted

My landlord continues to use the bottom floor of our apartment, illegally converted into a separate unit, as a party space. They are drunk and loud and have ruined our garden in the back yard. They forget to pay the electricity on a regular basis. We have already had our power shut off once because of this, and on several times only avoided a shut off because one of us happened to be home. Whenever we call them on their unprofessional and lax behavior, they become vicious and threatening.
