The landlord has the right to collect past rent from you and continue to evict you and/or not renew your lease. This has created a troubled rental history for you and this history will follow you in your efforts to rent another property - this landlord may share your history to other landlords because it will be on you cerdit history. You are now in a position that you must find a landlord (independent of a management company, most likely) who will consider your circumstances. He may charge a higher rental fee and ask for higher deposits to qualify you at a higher risk. There are landlords who are more forgiving and will work with tenants that are higher risks - you just need to search. You may want to ask a Realtor to help you search for a property or look in your local print medias for property leads.
