@O.My.Heart:  I’m sorry that your neighbor is such an ass! I would try not to worry yourself about your husband’s reputation on this. I think a lot of people can tell a crazy person who is trying to slander a good person. People are often more intuitive than we give credit for. I don’t know that there is anything that your landlord can do per se as it doesn’t affect your residence itself. I have no legal knowledge so someone jump in here if they do- could you talk to a lawyer if you’re concerned that these slanderous remarks will have professional ramifications?

I would look into getting a lawyer for defamation or harassment. But, you might have to have proof that it is your neighbor that is doing/posting those things. Without proof there isn’t much you, a lawyer, or your landlord could do.

I hope you get things figured things out soon! I’m sure this has to be so stressful for you both!

FI has to be able to show that he has experienced some loss because of what he has said if you want to win a court case for libel or slander. If FI got hired after this guy started bad mouthing him, it will be hard to prove any loss.

Unfortunately, what the tenant says at work, has nothing to do with the landlord. Only if he is bothering you at home, does it bcome an issue for the landlord.
