No - a landlord can not evict you for a yelp review, if it's all true you are bulletproof, if not liable, slander and small claims court may be some terms you want to Google. This seems a bad idea,... more
Somehow I can't imagine that giving a tenant an email address is a requirement for a landlord. If she wants to communicate by phone that's her perogative.

Security deposits are the number one cause for small claims court battles between tenants and owners. For properties I manage I always document move-in / move-out with a check list and pictures. It makes the whole process much more amicable and business like.... more
