Not finding any place that will accept dogs, even

spam deleted. Thanks! 'here's to your health!'

service ones. Blatantly say on phone that no dogs allowed,even when say,not a pet. Illegal. Can go to human rights but don't have time for that when looking, unless. They can make them give me the apt. Don't take section 8 or person with disabilities either as state working people. Others want 3 months rent up front, rent,security,last month.

Don't have that  kind of money. I just keep looking daily but it looks bleak.

Housing update..

spam deleted. Thanks! 'here's to your health!'

So despite all my trying to get my apt. up to snuff(friend from MA. made 4 trips to storage, took me to do 2 loads of wash, I patd neighbor $100. to clean for 10 hours!), it didn't pass HATAS'(homeless and traveler's aid) inspection. No specifics on what need to do to pass. They commented on kitchen table and items on it and below it. I said, have no shelving or closet to put them on or in. they didn't want to hear my 'excuses' and will not help move me as said should have been bagged up(all) not most of things. not what was told.  Had cat and no pets in lease. Am going to get doctor note need her. Also they won't ask Judd to stop eviction but are leaving me hanging but will pay subsidy while housed. Did my best and can do more when friend Bill comes next month on 6/4 before house inspection again by building dept. on the 9th. trying. legal aide takes my case on 5/14. My worker tells me landlord can do as pleases as his place. Not so if paid up and have another year on lease as I do! Tenants have rights too. Sad an agency like HATAS, that is designed to protect the poor, downtrodden, vulnerable, doesn't.

Their mission: to prevent homelessness, 'HATAS employs a holistic wrap-around approach in caring for our neighbors in need and we serve all persons with the dignity and respect that they deserve.'

Public defender's office wants me to plead..

Spam deleted. Thanks!

guilty so felony will be reduced to misdemeanor and no jail time but fine of $2500 and probation and record expunged after 6 months. I am not guilty as yes did buy stuff but thought was paying for it not accuser whose card used to buy his glasses last year. Amazon kept his info on file and when I didn't have enough to cover balance of purchase.,they billed other card on file,his. Not like tole his card and used it but am screwed royally. No money for fine and am only guilty oi buying stuff and not checking emails to see he was billed on his VISA.

Lawyer given works with judge Miller of Cairo often and knows how he thinks.  Feels that if goes to trial if plead 'not guilty' might lose and could do real prison time  like a year and pay fine too. Many take the plea apparently out of fear. What should I do? ugh. Wish tony fallon had just come to me about this last year as knew nothing about this,as a friend instead of ratting me out to cops.

Arrested Thursday for...

No spamming as deleted. Thanks!

for alleged  grand larceny. I am not guilty first off. Is a matter of a mistake and accident. Here's what happened. I had ordered and purchased eye glasses for then friend Tony Fallon in Cairo who owns hardware store and djs for WGXC radio station,handson radio through eyebuydirect.com, a vendor on Amazon,with my Amazon account and used my email address but his credit info. (after he tried to buy glasses himself from Pearle vision and was told would cost him $360 so he said forget it! I tried to be nice and help a friend but should remember no good deed goes unpunished. ingrate.)I forgot to delete his info.,an honest mistake,slight,not intentional or malicious,after and he was billed for anything I bought from then on unbeknownst to me as forgot to delete it and it didn't ask for my credit info again so just clicked through to place and ship order. Even read emails quickly to see when shipped but not that visa his card not mine paid for it! ugh. what a mess is all can say.
. Now are you getting the picture? No one notified me of my error and he didn't as guess was angry,confused and it was uncomfortable for him to talk to me about it. Instead he tells an aquaintence of mine, Mohammed, who owns the Getty station in Cairo,NY when he was gettting gas,who then tells me,very immature and sneaky,back then last year in the summer that I stole his credit card. I denied it and contacted the police then about it that I was being accused of this and got no call back. I am willing to pay back the $400 accidentally charged to his account to his bank as he was credited already am sure as is credit card protection. Can give 200 next month and 200 the following month and hope to settle out of court before have to appear there in late July. Funny how I figured wht happened in one day but it has taken the police a year to let me know about it. Crazy! I am no criminal,no previous record. Give me a break!Also shame on you Tony. We were friends. Is this how you treat a friend? Think the worst. Guilty til proven innocent. Feel how am being treated by police as they say to me you did it all points to you. Yeh I bought the stuff on his card but thought I paid for it Ok!? an innocent mistake. I am guilty of being careless and not keeping better track of my finances if anything,not criminal behavior. Always thought if lived honestly and didn't do anything wrong,justice would prevail but the jails are full of innocent people so am fearful may be my fate as well!Keep me in your prayers please all! thanks.

Her mo is is to fix it rent it and then once in does nothing.Know as lived there. avoid it is all can say.

(Cairo,NY) Slumlords galore here in good ol' Cairo. town does nothing to stop them. know as usedto live here. If poor,need housing that is cheap and there's the rub and doesn't exist. All find is rundown dumps as area was touristy and is no more and alot of these places abound and area is poor as little work so people aRE DESPERATE AND TAKE THEM. TOWN LOOKS Other way as in officials as think not their problem but is as depreciartes property values. even with new library and hannaford being built is still full of welfare and people don't buy so doesn't attract new business. knoqw as have one and hard to sell bread here. other slumlords here or just plain illegal ones are:perry holst and his unweatherized properties by the park,morgan krause and his eyesores on grove st.,john cassaluchi on route 84 by oneill's a dump,eva's farm,new owners still a dump,lake elissa,a dump and she makes a side business keeping your security deposits.

Case dismissed...

While I appreciate your comments to my posts, I would ask firstly that they pertain to topic and are not spam in nature. Thanks!
So then husband of Akama,maNGER OF PROPERTY SAYS 'can't we get her out for not paying October rent?' Judge said can't advise them and suggested they get an attorney! hahah. I got a free one through legal aide. I knew enough to do that and I'm on disability and am supposed to have a head injury Their normal allegedly.I'm supposed to pay for having to move,put my things in storage,look for new housing constantly,have sheriffs,her,others drop by all hours and call to throw me out?! I have not enjoyed the place in atleast a year and even then not really as place was always a dump,unweatherized,char5ged top market price though,not mowed regularly,vermin in it and in walls,roof,water damage to walls,mold,making me sick,sinus infections constantly,no storm windows,wet leaves on lawn,unraked,unbagged,fell on,no smoke detectors,carbon monoxide detectors,had to have put in myself and so on..Landlord is a real slumlord and absentee like many here which depreciates property values and the neighborhood as they don't keep up the places. I will offer some money for rent to avoid eviction on grounds didn't pay rent but am asking for a rent reduction due to damages unrepaired yet landlord knows of them. She claims she needs to reseiaze her property to fix them. I guess everyone moves out when their roof needs fixing,window replacement,insulation,rodents killed,mold right?! A tenant does have some rights and since I have exercised them is the real reason for my eviction as I don't kiss butt and agree with her and let her run me like all else does. Why should I pay top rent to live like this? I have to also as no place takes the pets I have and not giving them away,sorry. Also many landlords don't take section 8 or peole on disabiltiy with no full time job. Rather discriminatory no?

Super is Installing My Hot Water Heater as I Speak..


While I appreciate your comments to my posts, I would ask firstly that they pertain to topic and are not spam in nature. Thanks!

finally..Yes I am getting a smaller,brand new heater. Should be more cost efficient as well. Yesterday was pretty ugly as landlord came over demanding the rent but I told him he would not get it until he did repairs and only then would he get it minus deductions from days we went inconvenienced. This angered him causing me to call authorities on him. Don't think we will be seein him again at my door anytime soon,lol..Interim the rent money is safely tucked away in the bank and the note to the landlord from the bank is taped to my door,. He removed the last one I had for him stating that I would be deducting for days went without and he should have received the letter from the courts stating he has a court date with me regarding a rent reduction due to place being below the accessed value due to repairs not being made in a timely manner. I think in this case and all cases it is significant to establish a paper trail and to contact the proper authorities like the sheriff,town officials,code enforcement,social services and so forth to show good faith in that I tried to get things fixed and was willing to pay rent after so I don't appear in the wrong and a deadbeat tenant. This will all help my case, :).

Still no hot Water so am going to sue landlord for rent reduction in Small Claims..

While I appreciate your comments to my posts, I would ask firstly that they pertain to topic and are not spam in nature. Thanks!

court. Super came by today to measure hot water heater and said we would maybe have a new one Thursday, while I was pouring hot water I heated on the stove over the dishes in the sink. I am totally disgusted and sickened literally by this situation. I think it is inexcusable to expent rent when one doesn't supply the bare essentials of habitability to their tenants. what do you think? I have been looking but it is hard to find anything affordable and adequate.

I am officially out of my last home as of today...


I am glad to be gone. The sheriff department came out Monday to make sure I took whatever was left in the cottage out. He said if I didn't remove my damaged property from the front lawn, that I would be arrested. How nuts! Can they do that? I don't know. I need to consult with my attorney that has been helping me with my case from Legal Aid. Who should be arrested is my previous landlord who rents a property taht is but a summer cabin, year-round. How is that right?! Anyway, I was kind enough to sweep through the place ane my friend cleane the oven and I wiped down and emptied the frig. but was he happy/ No! Perry Holst, the slumlord and landlord "you call that clean? you are such a fuckin slob!" He said this right in front of the sheriff who said nothing but warned me when I was obnoxious to the landlord as I dropped his keys on the ground in front of him instead of hand them to him as I wanted no contact or to show him any respect. Another slumlord alert link is here in Albany. Another one is on craiglist for middletown,NY. Another article on Slumlords can be found here, but in this case it is from the landlord,stating why he and his wife plan on becoming slumlords after being kind landlords who rented to people or tenants who in their opinion took advantage of them including one they couldn't even evict after 6 months of trying. I'd just like to say that this sounds odd and extreme as 3 months is the maximum time allowed to evict someone.
NYC slumlord info is here. Article called 'My brother the slumlord' is here which offers another interesting slant on this issue.
Lots of info on slumlords here on the Golden Cockroach page. ha..Another post on slumlords is on Slumlord Interactive.

For more on tenant rights and evictions, read here. More info here on proper procedure for eviction. New landlord told me to remove anything by the front door as I was moving it in. He said the town would fine him. Is common to have things outside the door when moving it in on my planet which is earth. It is all removed now though. Happy house hunting and renting all!

Hall of..Shame...



winter snow in park in Cairo, NY


Landlords who keep your security deposit are also low lifes...

I looked at a cottage at the 'Lake Elissa' camp grounds or rather it used to be a camp site..Now 'Lisha' rents the cottages out year round. She also asks for pet insurance,pet security of $ 200. and does a credit check..She also has Welfare clients in there so not sure how they are there as people on Welfare notoriously have bad credit! Wack! She kept our security deposit we put down on the place,claiming it wss nonrefundable because she could have rented it out but was holding it for us for 2 days. Two days made all the difference?! She couldn't have taken their names and addresses and phone numbers and called them back as soon as we said we weren't taking it? Our credit sucks as we are poor and disabled and also my dog is hard to insure because she is a pitbull. Lisha you suck! My friend Bill plans to sue her for the $ 100. in small claims court. he is a Vietname Vet. Shame on you Lisha. How low can you get? Very, obviously and you are hard up too! This behavior will bit e her in the proverbial butt as it is not the first time she has done this probably nor the last but hopefully justice will be served as i think many make a side business doeing jus this. my friend and i have lost out on atleast 3 security deposits in the past. Grrr..
