    You can sue for anything you like. Whether or not you would prevail would depend on your evidence and the case you present.

    So, what were these *major* things the landlord ignored? Was he notified in writing about them? Why did you get booted? Was it for non payment of rent? If so, expect a countersuit from him! LOL

    You can try to sue, but you will be wasting your time and money. You will not win.

    The mildew in the bathroom - you should have cleaned it with bleach to kill the mildew. What does "other spots smoke" mean? cO2 detector? Do you really mean smoke detector? Did you change the batteries in it?

    If you were on a month to month agreement, the landlord only needs to give you a 30 day notice to move. If you were on a lease, he just needed to tell you he was not renewing your lease.

    No, you didn't pay the rent.
