I don't know where to begin. I just moved to Statesville and I've been told that some of the apartments are low income. I was also told that I don't qualify to live in some of these apartments because I make too much.

How much is too much for these low income families?

Why is it that they quote you one price and then raise it when you add another adult to the equation?

What are the rules and rights do new tenants have?

Where can I go for answers to such questions?

Need some help please...I think my landlord is trying to kick me out. I must've ticked someone off.

Read your lease thoroughly. Statesville is a very small town. They can pretty much do what they want. (the police/attorneys will not do anything for you if you are not a native)

See if you can rent a house. Many homes are cheap to rent in Statesville. Good Luck!

"...Statesville is a very small town. They can pretty much do what they want. (the police/attorneys will not do anything for you if you are not a native)...." How silly!

If you told your landlord that you alone were moving in, and you then had another adult, s/he is well within rights to amend the terms and even ask you to vacate - you violated the lease! Social Services can help with Section 8, but not everyone accepts this. Good luck to you - Statesville is a great town - I'm NOT a native and have been here for ~30 years.

Thanks for the feedback. Can I lose my deposit if they state that I violated my lease? I like Statesville and hope we could stay.

Yes, if you violated your lease you can lose your deposit - I would imagine this is everywhere as a lease is a legal contract. I'm in CT and thats how it is here. They may even be able to hold you liable for the cost on the remainder of your lease.
