    Get your landlord's permission first.

    Gee, I guess I'll have to ask myself permission before I make one What a
    silly thing to go to court about! People hang hideous things on their front
    doors all the time. I'm talking about some of the door-wreaths I've seen
    True, the HOA here might have a problem with peeps hanging on my front door
    (if anyone even noticed) but I sure wouldn't go to court over it; I'd just
    take it down.

    Waay beyond silly. Downright stupid.

    They shoulda all ....from the judge on down to the guy mopping the
    hallway.... been confined to Holiday Inn conference room and sentenced
    to watching non-stop Jerry Springer reruns for a period of no less
    than 90 days. No doubt half the people sentenced would gladly welcome
    such a sentence, but, mercifully, would be beaten to death by the
    other half within the first month. The remaining ppl would gradually
    lose their minds and expire within the second month, the last one
    gladly ramming his skull through the tv screen, in a bloody exploding
    screaming death.

    **********************
    I read the article. The landlord complained she was evicted because she
    wasn't paying her rent. She claimed she stopped paying rent "in protest"
    when they complained about the Peeps. I don't care who you are, no one
    leasing an apartment is entitled to live rent-free. So obviously there was
    more to it. Still, take down the damn diorama if the landlord objects. I
    rented apartments and houses for many, many years. The defendant claimed
    there was nothing specific in the lease about "decorating". Excuse me?
    I've never read a lease that mentioned decorating. Altering the property
    (like painting), sure. But IMHO hanging something on the front door doesn't
    consitute "decorating". It was a lame excuse, and certainly not a legal
    one. I'm surprised she was surprised. I'm surprised she found a lawyer to
    take the case!

    Forty years ago, four of use rented a house. During the Winter, the
    roof leaked so bad, water was coming in at the rate of 1 qt every 5
    mins. The entire kitchen was flooded and unusable. Destroyed a lot
    of our stuff and landlord refused to deal with it until we stopped
    paying rent and forced the issue into court. We won.

    And I can certainly appreciate that scenario. One house I rented, the lease
    specifically stated if there were problems with the appliances, etc. I'd
    have to have them repaired myself then submit the bill to him for
    reimbursement. I thought that was a terrible way to do business but that's
    the way it was. He did take care of the few minor issues (after the fact)
    but I only lived there for a year. Your guy just sounds like a jackass. I
    hope he had to pay the court costs!

    I'm pretty sure she wanted to break the lease - this was one way to do
    it and get free rent too.

    I'm not; but I am surprised the judge didn't throw it out of court as
    a frivolous lawsuit and make her pay the court costs.

    She's not the one who brought the suit; the landlord did. So why should she
    have to pay the court costs?

    There are lots of legal ways for a tenant to break a lease. If the lease
    promises the landlord will maintain appliances in working condition and the
    landlord doesn't do it, there's an out. But you still have to give notice.
    The whole thing was handled badly and turned into a case about Peeps! LOL

    I read it wrong then. I thought she brought the suit.

    I haven't read the lease agreement in question, but I've read a lot of
    papers for loans and leases. They always have a clause that says that
    if you don't pay and the person you were supposed to pay has legal
    expenses, you have to pay those.

    The tenant can't complain *too* much. She was only ordered to pay half.
