    can you be evicted after 5 days for a petty reason?

    My landlord was suppose to move his fridge to the garage so we could use ours. My husband put he screws in a baggie. When the landlord returned with his son they could not find the screws to the handles of the fridge. He stated if we could not take of the screws how could we take care of this house and he wants us out. we signed a 3 year lease. He said he would give us our deposit but not our first month rent. Can he do this??

    Your lease agreement is the controlling document here. I would argue that you have not violated the terms of your lease. If he is planning on pressing the issue, he will have to file an eviction proceeding and make his case in front of a judge. If you have been current on the rent and have not otherwise violated the lease, chances are that the judge would side with you.
