I lived in California and then ended up moving out before my lease ended, the landlord then kicked us out ( with no serving of evictiom papers) and locked us out and stole my electronics plasma tv's blue ray dvd's i took her to court after the detective investigated the case and found the TVs in one of her employees home using it, i won the case now she just emailed me saying she wants to sue me for unpaid rent because i sued her for stolen property this is 6 months after i have left the property can she do that? And can i countersue her telling the court i already won a case against her for stolen property and locking me out?

I would let it play put. She's probably drunk. I mean, wouldn't she have counter sued at the original hearing? And did you pay rent before she locked you out?

she can take you to court for the rent. keep the e mail & if you do end up back in court then mention to the judge that she waited until after to counter sue

No. she is just pissed that she got caught. She didn't even evict you properly. She is in a mess of trouble if she even tries to sue you for unpaid rent. To properly evict someone, it has to go thru the courts.

Landlord tennant rights! look them up! usually they have to give you a letter within 30 days (or something like that) explaining your fees and deposit refund information (if any). If they don't do it in a certain amount of time they forfeit that money... but look it up, it could be different in other states...

You are right and it is nationwide. They all have 30 days to refund your money or charge you with an explination of expenses.

Ignore this b***h.



Don't let anyone intimidate you with the threat of legal action. That's what people do when they are little b***hes.



If she was going to sue you or had grounds, she wouldn't be telling you she's GOING to do it, she'd have done it and would be laughing in your face, like you did when you got your shit back.



Block every means of communication from this woman.

A judge would laugh at her.



Ignore her. Not worth your stress.



You did nothing wrong, not your problem.
