Update: I want to say a heartfelt thanks to all my friends and supporters, who are helping me now in my unfortunate situation! Your response is overwhelming. It means very much to me!
Update 2: I made a new friend recently, Anne. She was very kind to post an article about me on her blog. There are many more details about me, my home and my situation.
normally I don't come out if something is wrong. I am that kind of person who deals with their problems on their own. But this time I really need help otherwise I will not make it. So that's why I am reaching out to you.
Learn about my Story
Since a few years I live and work in a house together with a few other people in a living community. Now the landlord wants to get rid of us and filed a lawsuit. It's not that we have done anything wrong, we always paid the rent and kept the house in order. Maybe just not the way the owner has imagined? Now found a flaw in the lease contract and uses it in court. He claims that he hasn't given permission to sublease the rooms and unfortunately the lease contract doesn't say otherwise. But sublease was the base of the agreement and the common practice from the beginning: I am the main tenant and all other housemates are subtenants. Why would I rent a big house with 8 rooms for me alone? But the law says I need a written permission and the landlord never handed one over. Though there is proof enough that the owner agreed on sublease I lost the lawsuit in the first instance. If I don't appeal to the next higher authority I am about to lose my home, my workplace (my office is at home), my whole existence in the next weeks and I have to pay all cost for the lawsuit and the involved lawyers because I am the only person in charge.
