I do know it is no longer on the market to rent, because I actually rented and am living here but I would love to have the details, as it had a great description of the rental.

I'm not an attorney, so this isn't legal advice, but I wouldn't think so.

He's already evicted you, your credit has already taken the hit of eviction. He can "try" to charge you whatever he likes, but since you've been evicted, I don't see how he can force you to pay. It's up to him to mitigate his damages by finding a new tenant.

If you're concerned, it might be worth a phone consultation with a real estate attorney.

In Ohio your property manager has to be a licensed agent it is not mandatory for them to be a REALTOR®. You are doing the right thing in pursuing legal help. The best thing to do is to is to focus on getting one property at a time up to standards and get it rented to help with cash flow. Investigate if your manager was licensed as the state has been laying some heavy fines on unlicensed management activities. ... more
