Can i get evicted because my living room looks like a studio?
My problem is one of bad timing among other things.I live in a senior community.I'm 59 years old.I have been a music collector since 5 years old.I've transferred my music to cdr and I have both audio cd's and movie dvd's stacked neatly in a corner of my living room and all kinds of electronic stuff about ,but all placed nicely.Recently it became time for HUD to do their annual inspection of each unit.The management went to all the apartments to do prechecking so as to do any needed repairs before the state does their inspection.The manager looked over the apartment and told me my boxes had to go.The boxes contain all my audio video stuff and 3 of them have my dad's property that he'll be getting back when he returns home next month.He's currently in a nursing home due to a stroke.He and my mother live in the apt beside me. The manager told me that I have a lot of cleaning to do,to consider it a spring cleaning and told me she'd come back in a week to reinspect.I didn't see the kind of dirt that she obviously saw,but ,not wanting to face eviction, I spent 5 days breaking my back to scrub floors and kitchen appliances ,etc..She also said i had to get rid of all my boxes that they're a fire hazard...she wants 'no' boxes around claiming they're fire hazards.I mean be serious..I don't know ANYONE who lives in an apartment and doesn't have boxes somewhere around inside.She came back today to reinspect and commented, "well..it looks better..you still have a lot to do". i'm fed up with this nonsense.It turns out she was mostly refering to my stuff as being the mess,not dirt.I have one corner of the room completely taken up with stacked cd's and dvd's but they're stacked neatly.I have several electronic units on my entertainment center a rack full of DVD's and a sofa and a small coffee table.I have a fairly small living room but it's all placed neatly and organised.I also have to sleep in the dining area because the bedroom is right off a busy road that has traffic daily and nightly.My air matteress is complete with sheet and plush blanket and stays in the dining area which is beside the living room.It's not messy AT ALL.I realised today,what she's unhappy about is how all this stuff lessens the availbale recreational space in the rooms./there's plenty of space to walk to each room but (for example)kids wouldn't be able to play with toys ,etc.it's compact but not messy or in disarray . it's all organised but it still makes her unhappy..can she really believe i'm going to get rid of my music and electronic equipment just because it renders less walking space in the living and dining room???and obviously she doesn't like the air mattress taking up room in the den.To make matters worse ,bad timing was involved.My dog woke me up today to tell me he went potty.I normally leave pee pads for him on the bathroom floor.Last night while i was doing some of that spring cleaning i was told to do, I forgot to put the pee pads back down.So after my dog woke me up,i had just gotten my pants on, and the manager comes banging on the door to do the reinspection.i wasn't aware that my doggy had layed one on the bathroom floor (just minutes before i got up,) where i normally put the pads.The manager became aware of it immediately after i let her in..Firstly upon entering,she stated that "it looks better".secondly,she went in to the bathroom,i heard "oh my god" and she immediately stormed out of the apartment.So i don't know what to expect now.I was told by a neighbor i might think about contacting legal aid because he sees an eviction in the forecast. Somebody else told me that's probably not the case,that the manager is merely trying to please the state inspectors at this point but that i shouldn't worry about being evicted.I've lived here for almost 4 years.I moved here for the peace and quiet ..I'm bipolar and have dspd and i figured that i'd get peace and rest in a senior community,whereas family communities weren't quiet enough with people going to and from all hours of the day & night and i sleep days.It's stressful here in this complex which i didn't expect in a senior community. When mentioning to the manager, my hearing a neighbor's music(loud bass),i was told that i'm to expect that, living in an apartment.They don't enforce much of anything regarding loud noise here.I was told by someone else that most senior communities are run much tighter than this one and that the owners of this complex aren't concerned about things like curfew or loud music on the property, from cars or other apartments,etc..Anyway i'm sitting here tonight wondering if i'm facing an eviction anytime soon.Can i get evicted for having too much stuff if it's not in disarray or causing risk of injury? The windows aren't blocked.Plenty of room to escape a fire.Also my sleeping in the living room is for my own health.Bipolars can go into severe fits of mania when losing as much as just one night of sleep.. Routine ,daily sleep is essential regarding this illness..not an option./I mentioned this to the manager who was working here when i first moved in (which was in 2010) and explained that it was the reason i was moving into(what i thought at the time)was a quieter and more peaceful complex..i soon found that ,like so many people i've known in the past,she didn't take my illness seriously because i'm so physically healthy.i don't know what to do at this point because if i'm facing an eviction ,i'd have no place to go and what's worse,my mother would also have to move as she's 89 and has sleep apnea.she moved in next door to me a year ago.when my father returns home i'll be helping her with him.my dining room and living room are adjoined and together they look like a small music studio or something due to the equipment and all.no mess,no disarray it's all organized and very neat. I can't afford to be moving right now but i also am not tossing my music,movies and stereo equipment in the trash and i can't afford a larger apartment.am i in a dilemma or am i worrying unnecesarily?(btw,i DID toss the dog log as soon as i discovered it)
