I've been searching on the site for a similar situation as to not irritate anyone with a possible 'duplicate' post, but came up empty...here goes.
Back in January 2008, I signed a 1-year lease for a studio apartment in Taipei. January 2009 came and went, without any new contract. I kept paying monthly, and all was fine. The apartment began having issues (backed up pipes causing my bathroom to flood, broken washing machine, etc) which the landlord(s)--a couple--were unwilling to handle. I had to resort to withholding rent before he finally responded. We mutually decided to be rid of each other in March 2010; I had begun looking for a new place, and they had asked a friend to request me to move (they spoke no English, and although my Chinese is fine, they just wouldn't contact me directly). Long story short, they claimed I didn't notify them of my intent to move, and they took my keys when I was only about 50% moved out.
We met 4 months later to try to negotiate a settlement; she had found out where I worked out and brought police to the gym. They just sat there on the curb and eventually left. I know the old tricks, and my friend smoothed things over. During the next meeting, she refused to comp me for the items I forfeited. I paid her an initial sum, but nothing afterwards. She's been calling my friend nonstop and is now threatening legal action. They have a copy of my old passport, but I now have a new one.
I left the country in May 2011 for Hong Kong. I won't be living or working in Taiwan again, but my fiancee is Taiwanese and we DO plan on visiting our friends there. What can she actually DO (she IS a bit unbalanced) and will it affect my being able to visit Taiwan for short weekends? She simply refuses to communicate with me directly, and my friend, a Taiwanese woman, has had enough with her but also thinks I should settle somehow. I disagree, but I'm sure what acting this loony can actually take. Any advice would be extremely helpful, as we were hoping to visit in late September.
