Private Landlord -- No Rent Control

I have rented for over 20 yrs. New property mngrs for the last 8. They have been trying to get me out all 8 yrs. First giving me three day notice that rent wasn't received. I always pay rent on time. They charged me $35 more than even the best units were paying for 2 yrs.I had lived there the longest. When I asked them why? answer was It's what the market can handle or it's all the upgrades then put me on hold then would hang up. Never got upgrades or an answer. I started paying them the same rent as same units were paying, $35 dollars less, and received another 3 day notice. I called and again asked why my rent was more. rep. was rude and said, "I don't have time for this!" I paid up. They made hole in Bath room ceiling to fix upstairs plumbing and did not repair. Made hole under kitchen sink> I ended up repairing because RATS got in. Many other occurrences. Now that I am moving out they are making this unpleasant also. They say my deposit is not what I know it is. They say they will deduct repair,cleaning etc. etc. I was told by one of the many property mngrs that they wanted to gut my place and now is their chance. The refrige that came with apt. was manufactured in 1996!
