My name is Adrian Ruiz. I am 50years old and live by my self with my 3 cats that I’ve had for over 10 years. We live in Miami, Florida in a trailer home that I have been renting for 5 years, This week on Monday November the 13th 2023 I received eviction papers placed on my door. I rented the trailer home from a lady in 2018. After a month of moving in I had found out the lady had passed away from colon cancer. The trailer was then given to her son in his 30’s which I was paying him the rent from then on out. He lives with his wife in a different location. About less than 3 months ago he texted me that I needed to move out because he wanted the trailer back, to sell it. Here in Miami the rents all over the city has skyrocketed since after covid hit. My rent was $750 a month which now landlords are asking anywhere from $1000 to $1300 a month for a trailer home Almost double than what I was paying. Also landlords now are asking for First, Last and security which before it used to be First and security. The trailer I’m about to get evicted from over the years has gotten in bad shape. The roof has several leaks in multiple locations when it rains I have to put pots all over the place to catch the leaks, There is even one right over my bed. When it rains which is fairly often here in Miami it becomes a nightnare in the trailer. The floors are caving in in some areas too due to the water coming in and alot of the tiles are broken cause of this. The windows too leak sometimes making it worse. The appliances have stopped working since they are old and gotten water leaked too so I cant cook in the kitchen. The only thing still working is the fridge. The lights flicker on and off and sometimes they go out. I have to reset the breaker switches which are very old a few times a month. This has developed over the 5 years I’ve been here. In the beginning everything was fine. I mentioned all of this several time to the landlord but he kept stringing me along that he would fix things. He never did anything about it. He even got mad at me for saying this to him so many times to please fix all of this. Then all of the sudden that’s when I got a text to move out. I am in a real tough situation because I don’t have the money to move. I tried to talk to him to please give me more time to find a new place and come up with some money but the situation in Miami with costs are way above my means. He did not care and told me to leave or he would evict me. So he did. c I haven’t found a place since I just don’t have the money landlords want to move in. I guess since this trailer home was given to him he doesn’t care about it and that’s fine I guess but putting me in this situation is uncalled for. So I am asking for help with money to move out before I end up in the streets. Not to mention my cats which I love them alot and have been giving them a good life all this time. They are my companions and my best friends. They are indoor cats and have never been outside. I do Uber for a living but with the rise of rents and costs of moving I cant do it on my own. I can pay rent after I move in but I just cant come up with thousands of dollars in a short time. I don’t have anyone else to ask for help so this is a first for me and its a little embarrassing. If anyone out there can please help me with the moving costs which I’ve done some math I’m begging for $4000 to $5000 to get me out of this huge problem this guy has put me in. I’m not sure how long I have left before the sheriff comes and kicks us out but its not to much time it’s a dire situation for me. I came across this website browsing on youtube today and immediately started writing this on the Nov. 17th 2023 and I’m hoping it can work for me. Thank You for taking your time to read this and hopefully help me out. Again Thank You.
