We are clearly only seeing the tip of the iceberg.
You must make yourself aware, sensitive to, accountable for, the RISK at which you are placing others. If you take a confrontational posture...it will bey your wife who will pay the price.
Take a step back.
Cut a generous piece of humble pie.
Work out the issue with the land lord.
If you TRULY have concern for your wife and kids, practice these 12 magical words:
"I am sorry"
"I was wrong"
"Please forgive me"
"I love you." (use proper words for landlord)
Had you known the power of these words, and called up the REAL courage required to use them, you would have avoided much of the trauma of your life.
Right or wrong is NOT the issue here.
Protect your children and your wife.
Do what you must and keep the right spirit within you.
