I have never even considered asking for help this way but this is an absolute dire emergency. My fiance Darryl, myself and our 11 year old son have been renting an apartment from a family member for the past year. We’ve always had problems getting anything fixed or done, we spent this past winter with no heat because he would keep making excuses as to why he couldnt come fix it each day. The refrigerator freezes everything in it and that was told to us when we moved in, something else that was promised to get fixed right away.
About 2 months ago we fell into a hardship and had to pay rent a little late for the first time. Everything was fine at the time because he said that he understood and that we are family. Well, we still owe $150 of the rent but have been working hard to get it caught up.
This morning, out of nowhere, he very quietly placed a 5 day eviction notice on our door this morning with extremely vague reasons for the eviction. He will not return my calls so I am going to take action against him because of the way this was done. I have messages stating everything was ok. There was nothing that indicated a coming eviction. So my family and I are reaching out for the first time ever using anything like this in hopes that someone can help us get an apartment within 5 days. Something small is fine, a roof over our heads is all we need. Our son is enrolled in school here so we need to stay in this town and there are not very many choices as far as rentals go. The one that i found is a 2 br 1ba apartment, fully furnished with a garage and they are asking $700 per month and $700 deposit. So that is why i set the goal for $2000.00, to factor in moving there also. Any help is greatly appreciated and we are able to pay this back if that helps. Its just difficult coming up with that much money on such short notice. Darryl works full time and i work part time so we would be more than happy ro repay. Thank you for taking your time to read this. Thank you so much!
