okay this is the problem can a landlord kick you out for making a complaint on someone no matter how many times you have before. and is another tenent allowed to come over to your apartment and almost kick youre door in and cuss and scream at you. do i have any rights against that. and the neighbors keep making complaints on us and we are not doing anything. i have a 3 year old and the landlord says that hes not allowed to make noise. and the landlord says that one more complaint on either one of us and we are kicked out so can he kick both of us out even if one is being to loud and we make a complaint can he kick us out for makint a complaint. the landlord got mad cause when the neighbor almost kicked out door in we called him it was around 130 and we wasnt doing anything but watching a movie and we wasnt even being loud and he said that he is not going to lose sleep over it so is that right i live in west virginia we live in quadroplexs

\okay and does the other tenent have the right to come bang on my door and cuss and screamm

DO you have a lease? If NOT then you'd better start packin.......cause the LL will give you a 30 day notice to vacate!

If you do have a lease the landlord cannot throw you out cut off your utilites NOTHING!

But a landlord can always try and evict you in COURT, and you will have a chance to defend yourselves,

And ONLY if the landlord WINS in court can you actually be thrown out by a Marshall or a Sheriff.

DJ1 is somewhat correct, but is also crude and inconsiderate himself in replying to peoples questions. A landlord CANNOT demand absolute silence as a condition of tenancy UNLESS there is a clause in the lease regarding no children. If the building allows children, they have to expect a reasonable level of noise during the daytime. Most municipalities regard EXCESSIVE noise after 10PM as misdemeanor or ticketable offenses. DJ1 is right about your lease situation though, if you are month to month, either party can terminate the agreement with 30 days notice. There is no such thing as no lease, you are either month to month, or you have another agreement be it verbal or written (always get it in writing!) and with that, you almost always have the right to a 30day notice (unless you are using your residence for criminal activities). A note to Dj1 if you read this-- try a little tact. Your lude behavior and disrespect for humanity in general is quite disturbing.

You ARE the Weakest Link....Goodbye

You have obviously done something to the other residents/tenants and landlord can eliminate many problems by removing you. If events as you describe them are happening, you need to call the police and document them with incident reports. Since others are complaining about you, the landlord's course of least resistance is to remove you if you are attracting/causing the disturbances. People don't harrass you 'for no reason'. Somewhere/somehow you have majorly PO'd someone.
