Did You Get a Landlord Eviction Notice?

in Legal Issues on by

You mean that lovely orange sticker on your door isn’t a friendly note from your landlord? Read closer… it’s an eviction notice. You may think that things like this only happen to rowdy college students, but think again, because it can happen to you. The best protection from this harsh punishment is reading your lease completely – especially that fine print. Leases are riddled with all kinds of rules and regulations as well as consequences, so knowing where you stand from the beginning will prevent you from being kicked out into the cold. It’s also helpful to understand the eviction process so if you are served with an eviction notice, you’ll know how to proceed, and what your rights are. Here are a few things to keep in mind about the eviction process.

Violations

Do you get bitter stares in the parking lot of your apartment complex? You only had a few people over… how loud could it have possibly been? And your rent was only a week late – for the past 3 months. But other than that, you’re a model tenant. Either of these problems can result in violations. You’ll likely receive written violations from your landlord, asking you to mend your irresponsible ways. Sure, you’ll probably get a few warnings, but violations inevitably lead to one thing: eviction.

Although eviction notices vary by state, they typically fall into three categories: pay rent or quit notices, cure or quit notices, and unconditional quit notices. The first category is for those with past due rent. The notice will allow a tenant to pay the amount within a certain time period or vacate the apartment. The second deals with lease violations, such as breaking pet regulations, and asks the tenant to fix the problem or get out. The third simply tells the tenant that there are no second chances, and it’s time to start looking for another crash pad. This usually happens when there have been many previous violations. You can also be evicted for abandonment of your apartment, which is defined by abandoning the rental unit (even if you’re paying rent!) for more than half of the rental period without notifying the landlord. So, if you’re headed on a European road trip for 2 weeks this summer, both as a courtesy and a matter of legal necessity, you should notify your landlord by mail that you will be gone.

The Next Step

So you’re going to be a rebel, huh? If you don’t pay your past due rent or correct your lease violation within the allotted time period, your landlord will serve you with a summons and complaint for eviction. If you’re still standing strong, chances are you’ll be taking a trip to the courthouse. Your landlord can’t just evict you, or “terminate your tenancy.” If they try to kick you to the curb without getting a court order, contact an attorney and fight for your humble abode! First, they must get a court judgment in order to proceed with terminating your tenancy. The landlord should file a complaint with the county court, describing their problems with the tenant. You would then receive a notice asking you to appear for a hearing. Once you have received notice of your hearing, gathering together evidence of your landlord’s poor management of the property, or insufficient notices of your violations can be a good defense. Unfortunately, violations of the Landlord-Tenant Act work both ways. Chances are, if you’re being hauled into court, your landlord has some severe problems with your behavior as well, so make sure the violations you bring to light are strong arguments against your landlord. And even if your grievances don’t sway the judge, don’t panic, your landlord can’t just kick you out as soon as the judge bangs the gavel – and you can always appeal the decision. The court will give your landlord permission to end the tenancy, and after this, it really is time to start looking for another place. A local law enforcement officer is usually given authority over the case, and in a few days, he or she will come to your *hopefully* vacant apartment to escort you off the premises. Let’s just hope they don’t have to use handcuffs.

    If a landlord puts a notice in my apt is it valid? Does he have a right to enter without giving me notice even if i am in violation?

    I live in a building with many pets in many sizes. My 25lb dog barks at other dogs while on a leash if we pass another dog who also lives in the building while entering the lobby or riding in the elevator. My dog never bites but her bark is loud. She’s easy for me to control bc she’s so small and she is always on a leash because of her barking. Does such rude barking behavior constitute a breach of Pet Regulations if other Tenant’s complain?

    I had an unlawful detainer in 2002 due to unpaid rent. They won by default because I didn’t know my rights. I was judgment proof but the apartment complex was awarded a money judgment. It’s on my credit report, but I don’t think evictions go on your credit report otherwise. I haven’t attempted to rent an apartment since then. It’s been terrible. I’ve had to rely on renting rooms at private residences. You may also find yourself blacklisted by credit screening agencies like UD Registry and Saferent. Almost every apt. complex uses some credit agency to screen potential tenants. Even if it’s not on your credit report, evictions are public records. Even just being named as a defendant in an eviction suit can land you on one of these unscrupulous registries. In my case, any apartment complex who checks my credit will see the judgment until it comes off, usually after 7 years.

    You’re not out of luck as far as renting an apartment. There are many complexes that will work with someone who’s been evicted. You might check with an apartment renting agency as to which ones in your area. Still, other apt. complexes will automatically deny anyone who’s had an eviction. I hope this doesn’t depress you more. The reality is that once you have an eviction on your record, it’s a long hard road back. You may never get to just walk into a leasing office and rent an apartment like a “normal” person again. Hang in there and good luck.

    Last week I received a “Notice to perform covenant or to quit the premisses”. The problem is that I have a cat. The little kitty did not move in with us when we rented the apartment. We found her dying on the street and have been taking care of her since. But the lease says: “No pets allowed”. Is there any way to keep my kitty while staying in this apartment?

    My boyfriend just got an eviction notice. It e else, however, and seldid not state a specific reason, just that he and “all others” need to leave. He does not live with anyone, but his friends spend the night. When asking her (the landlord) why he was being kicked out, she said “we just want our unit back” but then apparently mentioned something about someone else’s mail being sent to his place which was against the rules. It was my mail. I had asked the bank to send my bills to his place, but then realized it was against the rules so I cancelled it. BUT they sent it to his address anyway. Is there any way out of this so he can get his place back? Compromises..money offers…anything??? Please help. C

    She lives in a condo, and we bought a new puppy. shes a pug.
    She’s absolutly an amazing little girl, no harm, no barking, she’s an angel. About 4 months or so after we got her, we got a “friendly reminder” in the mail saying they dont allow any pets in the condo’s. we will never give away our puppy. we got a lawyer, but he didnt help. And we own the condo, were not renting, so they cant evict us from it. What else can we do?

    Apparently it is, because this just happened to my daughter. She rented a college apartment with “friends” and the last month of their lease, 2 of them moved out and refused to pay their share. My daughter sent her rent check, but it was returned, saying the landlord was taking everyone on the lease to court. We did not know it was an “eviction” because everyone moved out on time. We thought it was just to get their money. We did not go to court, because we were led to believe we didn’t need to. The landlord would win by default and everyone would be ordered to pay and that was that. We got a notice that the case had gone to court and we were waiting for a bill or something. Nothing came. A year later my daughter got a job in another state. She could not find anyone to rent to her because she has an “eviction” on her record. She even called the landlord and settled with them and paid what they wanted. They sent her a letter for her to give to the manager of the apartment she wanted to rent. The letter said she had settled and was no longer financially liable to the previous landlord. But because the eviction is on her record (and will be for 7 years), they still won’t rent to her.They won’t even accecpt a cosigner. She is currently living in a hotel, in spite of having a good-paying job with a major corporation. I’ve seen criminals get off easier than this. She made one mistake as a college student and will pay for it for the next 7 years?

    I have a question. Well, me and my grandmother is trying to rent apt/or house, But we are unable to rent from neone cause she has an eviction on her record. Here’s the story….She had an in home care provider who lived with her. My grandmother ended up goin to a nursing facility, and the provider that was takin care of her stopped paying the rent and bills so my grandma got evicted. I was wandering if there is neway she can contest the eviction on her record, since it wasn’t her fault that she got evicted. She has proof that she wasn’t living in the house for 3 months prior to the eviction. So if neone can tell me if theres away she can contest the eviction e-mail me at PTBAOTWTC@aol.com….thanks…Andrew

    Seven months ago my so-called best friend agreed to buy a home for me to be his renter. Being we were close friends, there was no lease agreement signed between us. He acted like he was going to be living in it with me and my boyfriend. A few months ago I started having major problems in my life causing me to lose my job. I’ve been searching for work and was denied unemployment. I don’t have anymore monies to pay the rent. Today, my friend, who owns this house, taped a 30 day Notice to quit or pay on my front door. Again, there is no lease agreement signed. I am going to leave before the 30 days expires, but can this ruin my credit still with no lease agreement signed? Can an eviction go on my credit still w/out any supporting documentation signed by me? Please let me know asap and give me some advice on what I should do.

    Only for emergencies such as flooding or anything else causing property damage; they can also check for occupancy if your rent is past due to make sure you haven’t skipped out. But when doing so most property companies require the individual to leave a notice in a “non-conspicous” area in your apt letting you know that they have entered.

    your a tenant at will. with no lease it is easier to evict. a 30 day notice is all he has to serve you. then a court date 7 days proir to that date . he gets judgment and you have another 3 days or so to get out. if you don’t you can be arrested for trespassing.

    this is so true, if the landlord comes unanounced and demands entry this is a violation of the renters rights. In AZ they require 48 hours written notice to enter the premisis. If they don’t provide written notice 48 hours prior then deny them entry as they don’t have the right to be there unless it is an emergency. if they enter without your permission and it isn’t an emergency you have every right to terminate your lease as they have violated the lease agreement by entering without your permission. i just did the same thing at my last residency, the guy would show up every week and demand entry or just walk in the residence unanounced. I researched the renters rights and took his ass to court terminated the lease. it cost about the same amount as 1 months rent in fee’s. ogh and watch your credit after the process is ended, as the landlord may attatch junk to your credit that you have to contest to get off. If they persistantly do that then you have deffimation of character lawsuit and you can sue the punk.. luckily in my case he only attached one thing to my credit and it cleared as soon as i contested it.

    I don’t know if you’ve had any luck yet, but one thing that you can do is a Chapter 7 bankruptcy filing. It immediatly halts all collection activity, including eviction. You can go to your federal courthouse and file the “emergency filing packet”,which basically is 3 pages. You can file for them to waive the filing fees also. Make sure that you name your landlord as a creditor, and the “automatic stay” takes effect- he can’t proceed with the eviction, or he faces major penalties. He can, though, file for “relief of stay”. They are sometimes granted, but not always. It would at least buy you a month or so to find a new place.

    Next, talk to an attorney that specializes in FED cases. Tell him that you have just filed for BK. He or She will confer with the other parties attorney and draft a settlement agreement. Landlords hate BK’s because they won’t get any of their money. If your settlement includes that you will pay starting next month until such and such date, they will generally accept it. It’s better than getting no money and you tying them up in the legal system with your BK for 4 months or so.

    Good Luck!

    Okay, so I have a slightly odd situation. A year ago I rented an apartment with another girl. To make a long story short she was crazy, didnt pay anything, keyed my car, stole from me and left.. (still leaving half of her things at the apartment). My parents wanted me to move back home with them because I was stuck paying the rent on my own for a couple months when I could hardly afford to be living on my own in the first place. I decided to try and stick it out for as long as I could because I didnt want my credit to be ruined. Sooo the time came where I couldnt do it anymore. BUT at the last minute I had a friend of mine step up and took over as my roommate. By this time it was too late for me and I had to move home (but still continued paying half the rent for my roommate). NOW the end of our lease is coming. Evidently we were supposed to give 60 days notice, and we thought it was 30. We gave 30, but now they are saying we will have to stay the extra month. We looked over the lease and it does say 60, but at one time it HAD said 30, but they crossed it out and wrote in 60. He is planning on moving back home also. Even before the lease is up. My question is, if we skip out on last month would they even consider it an eviction?? Obviously they will keep my deposit but how can it go on my record as an eviction if we are already moved out and not living there? We both live in differnt states, and im 1,000 miles away from this place. My OLD roommate who went crazy lives in the same town and is still on the lease. I would think they would go after her rather than crossing state lines to go after us… Everyone is telling me to skip out, and I really want to. My other rommie doesnt want it going against his credit (and neither do I) But its such a minnor amount of money at that point, do you think it will be worth their trouble? If they rent it out to somone else for that month they would be making more than if we paid that last month! It doesnt make sense for either of us! Any help at all would be awesome!!

    We rented a house for six months and recieved 1 notice to pay the rent or get out. We paid the rent, and paid every time after that on time. We had a baby at the beginning of january, we paid the rent but failed to give a written 30 day notice. Our lease was up January 31, 2007. We did call them and tell them we had the notice and would drop it off and also told them that we were not going to continue renting, they did not indicate that there was a problem with this. We applied for an apartment and they denied us stating that we were being evicted from the place we were currently living. We never recieved a notice of eviction when we called landlord they said they were evicting us for failing to give a written 30 notice and since we are moving and the lease was up they said there was no need to give us one. We are now living in a hotel with a one month old baby. Can they do this? Do we have any recourse? What can we do to rent another place?

    I’ve had problems with the management at my apartment from the moment I moved in. I should have paid attention to the bad attitudes they had before I signed the lease. Well it’s been about 5 months since I moved in and I’ve paid my rent late once. We got into a huge battle over nothing and we haven’t gotten along since. A few days ago I received a letter from the management office of my apartment accusing me of having someone else living in my place. They listed my boyfriend’s name on the notice which was very odd to me. The only way they must have gotten his name is off the key list they have in the management office. The management office allows tenants to list two people that the office can give a key to if you’re not home. They gave the key to my boyfriend once so that’s how they probably identified him. Anyway, my boyfriend comes over my house everyday especially since my car has been at the mechanic for over about two months now. He picks me up for work and brings me home everyday. He spends the night alot so that he won’t have to drive back and forth from his house to mine. I don’t understand the fine line between having guests over and having someone live with you. The lease just says that I cannot sublease or allow others to occupy all or part of the apartment without management’s consent. What the heck does that mean???? I really believe that this accusation is retalitory because of our arguments and disagreements in the past. Can they evict me because my boyfriend comes over everyday?

    You might already know this by now, but if you go to court and you agree to leave the unit they usually give you a week or so to vacate the premises…honestly whatever you do don’t get an eviction on your record…you will never find a place. So if you agree to vacate make sure you vacate and stick to the terms you agreed to in court, cause if you do the eviction doesn’t go on your record.

    If you just have the eviction notice and you go to court and you agree to vacate the premises and you agree to the terms that you make in court and you leave when you are suppose to the eviction does not go on your record. It will just show dismissed. You shouldn’t have a problem in finding a new apartment. I have found people that own property and rent it out and they don’t do a credit check or anything…good luck.

    I just got evicted because my boyfriends dog barked at a lady on Saturday night and she complained. she fabricated a story to make herself look like a victim. This apartment manager has been looking for a reason to evict my roomate and I because last month there were SERVERAl maintenance issues that she did not take care of nor was she professional about any of it. She entered our apartment without consent at the end of last month to leave a letter on the floor asking us to pay a pet deposit for two dogs that did not belong to us. We had a visitor in January that brought two harmless dogs over and the maintenance man came unannounced to find them in the apartment. Now, she claims she can evict us even though we don’t OWN a pet. There is not anything in the lease agreement about visitors pet’s. Everybody in the apartment community has a dog so I didn’t see any problems since we are very good tenants that always pay our rent on time and have lived there for two years now. This manager is new and I feel like she is being unethical by abusing her power as a manager due to a personal problem she has against us. She has also made up lies in the past to cover up her mistakes, my roomate called her out on these lies and the manager still did nothing to help us when our power went out FOUR times in Jan. due the the outside broken braker that she refused to have REPLACED. I have really had it with this lady and I don’t feel like an eviction is appropriate. What should I do, call their corporate office or fight the eviction?

    I have been in this situation and was paid in full they wanted me out for the noise complaints. He gave me one week and I need two. He was not going to “evict” in terms of going to court. Well I had to take him to court and got a “Settlement”. This gave me my extra week…problem was I then got a “Settlement” on my record and new landlords treat it the same as and eviction…its bad…they figure you had a problem with the landlord…then call. If you have not caused problems or been late on rent then you can maybe go to court. If you can get out…get out.

    No, the landlord has to give at least a 24-48 hr notice. You have a right to your privacy and they can’t just show up at any given time without advance notice.

    Hello. My husband and I moved into an apartment, and sent our landlord a typed, witnessed and signed statement of “condition of apartment at move in” since the form they gave us did not leave room for specifics. Landlords freaked out and screamed at me over the phone, saying they wish we’d never chosen them.
    I explained it was just a formality for our protection on move-out, and we have no problems with them or the apartment. We CHOSE to live here. (duh!)
    Since then, we have found footprints in the snow coming up to our windows, and twice now have returned home to minor, but definite, differences that made us aware someone had been in our home. We believe it was our landlord.
    The second time was just today, and whomever was in here locked the second lock on our door when they left (we never do), which means they had a key. On top of that, my house smells HORRIBLY of cigarette smoke and we’re not smokers. The manager – Michelle – is a smoker, as is the maintanance man. We have not asked for any maintanance help, and have paid our rent early from the time we moved in. (Jan)My Question:
    Is it legal for a landlord to come into the home when we’re gone – unannounced? If it were thieves or robbers, stuff would be moved or stolen.
    Why, then, is this woman coming in here, and what can I do about it? I know this isn’t about eviction, but is she looking for reasons to evict us, and is this legal? Someone please help.

    Hi, I am a owner of a 4plex apartment. I have a tenant who have been living in one of our units for more than 7 months now. Their lease ended on March 2007. They wanted to renew their lease for another 6 months. I gave them their new lease agreement before their first lease is about to end. It’s May 7 now and still haven’t received the lease i gave them in March. Now, We’ve decided to evict them because ever since they move in our apartment they have been late every month, at least 2 weeks late. The tenant is asking for an Eviction Notice although we’ve never received the lease agreement. Do we have to give them Eviction Notice even though they are basically renting on a month to month basis?Please help..

    I have a sticky situation and any advice will be helpful. We have 2 children in the house – a newborn and a 2 year old. The tenant below us has complianed of excessive noise because of the two year old. Landlord served us a first notice We tried to quiet it down – but how much can you tell a child who is 2 to be quiet. She does not fully comprehend. Then after a month and a half we received a 2nd notice form the landlord again from the tenants down below compaining this time giving us a warning stating that a third notice can lead to an eviction process. We are extremely stressed out and living on our toes. We went and spoke with the tenant down below and even gave her our phone numbers whenever she hears any noise and we will try and do something. We are extremely worried being with a family and through no fault of our own we will be evicted. We are trying to control her as much as we can, but what if the girl downstairs decides to not call us and complain to the manager -then we will be thrown out and this will be on our record and with a family of 4 who will rent to us because of this?
    We have been good tenants paying our bills on time, trying to comply with all the rules, but this we feel is very reasonable as it is not in our control to stop a 2 year old from screaming if she wants to.
    We are trying to speak with the landlord for an early termination? What are our other options? Can we break the lease if she doesn’t agree?

    Hi. I am in a pickle. About 2 years ago I was living in an apartment complex for almost 4 years(2001-2005). I moved out in 2005 due to a lay off and had no other choice. I was under the imppressions that I broken my lease and I owed the apartment complex money. WELL, about 3 weeks ago, I pulled my rental history online because I wanted to see how much they were saying that I owed the complex and noticed that it WASN’T listed as a broken lease it was put on there as an EVICTION!! Now I am looking for another apartment but in the process I want to contest this eviction. I NEVER received an eviction notice in writing from a constable or in the mail (I had a forwarding address). It seems to me that I did not even get a chance to state my claim on this issue with the courts like my rights state that I have. Something is not right with this im thinking. But in the meantime…I need a decent apartment for a single woman to be living in. Can you tell me what my options are with 2 of these issues??

    1. How can I and what do I need to do to contest this eviction?
    2. While in the process of contesting, I need an apartment. Can you tell me what I can expect having this info on my rental history? And what my options may be on getting an apartment or a website that will tell me about specific apartments that will work with me even if I have to pay alot of money. (which I am prepared for). Thank you for yout time

    You owe money only until the date you completely vacated the apartment.
    You have to pay for the pro-rated days, and CAN NOT be charged for more.
    However, you will probably be responsible for rent until the landlord finds another tenant.
    The landlord HAS to try to mitigate (or minimize) their damages, within reasonable time, andmake noticeable effort. If they dont, you’re off the hook, but if they do, you have to pay for the time between you leaving, and the new tenant vacating.
    DO NOT TAKE AN EVICTION!
    You can break a lease ANYTIME, despite what the landlord tells you, by giving a 30 days notice, but you will be responsible for monetary damages caused to the landlord by leaving early.
    I just went trhough this, so I know.
    I got off with only owe-ing 400 dollars, but I put in the foot work and found another tenant.
    I am in California, so your state may be different, but there’s free legal advice in every state.

    My neighbor is upset.

    Today the apartment manager came to his apartment with pest control and a maintence man, but wouldn’t state why they were there. My neighbor asked 2x before he received an answer. The apartment manager, than became instantly defensive and told my neighbor they could come into the apartment anytime they felt like it. Now they were there for maintence and pest control. The Pest people did what they had to do, but her and maintence just stood there like they were trying to find something. My neighbor than instructed everyone out of the unit. She then started to yell and scream at my neighbor, he said he was not going to argue with her and to just get out (he called her 1 profane name). He immediately contacted the corporate office to report the incident (this happened at 9am). Corporate advised that the manager was in the wrong and he had nothing to worry about. This lady served a termination of lease notice at the end of the business day, stating that my neighbor used profanity and that is not allowed on the premises and that he had unlawful tenants in his unit (his cousin is visiting from another state). Now the lease agreement states nothing about “profanity on the premises”. What can he do? When I signed my lease I was told that I would be given 24hr notice before anyone entered the premises. The lease does state they can come in at anytime. He just wanted to know why they picked 2day to do a drop by when any other time the issue notice.

But anyways, he has been lying to the landlord about how many people are staying with me in my household, and saying i keep up all kinds of noise… well he also served me an eviction notice from the landlord, but the landlords signature is not in ink, it looks like a stamp or colored pencil or something , and the landlord says he was out of town so he had the man put it on my door…. Well it says I have a 30 day notice to move, but, only the notice is dated aug 13 and says i have til aug 31 to get out…. and it says i have too many complaints on noise, and i have spoken with all of my neighbors and noone has complained about me…. its the landlord taking the other guys word for it….

    My lease states two weeks without notice. However, I have been gone as long as four months from my apartment, and it was never discovered. Just find a friend you can pay for removing fliers from your door, turn on a few light timers, and have a friend move your car a few times while you’re gone. And make sure the office has your cell phone number.

    Amazing! I am a landlord, so you know know my bias. Tenants shouldn’t be so shocked that they are being evicted…

    I find it humorous when tenants are shocked that their behavior is making the landlord irritated. How easy is it to:
    1) Pay on time (if you don’t pay your car payment, they repo it.)
    2) Respect your neighbors
    3) Not Bringing pets in that pee on the carpet and scratch up the walls
    4) Keep the drugs out.

    Thats pretty much it and you will never come close to eviction. You are not a victim of “the man” hating on you, you just need to grow up and act responsibly.

    one tip. If you know that eviction is coming, offer to move out early for part of your deposit, so the landlord doesn’t have to file legal. Saves everybody time and money and will keep the eviction off of your record.

    yes it will go on your credit, which will make it difficult to find the next apartment. If the total charges ad up past a thousand or so, they may take you to small claims court and put a judgment out against you. Which yes will affect your credit again, making it more difficult to purchase a car, house, get credit cards, checking accounts etc…

    I suggest you find a way to pay your rent or move out before it gos legal.

    I have lived in my apartment with my roomate for about 3 months now…never have had parties or had anyone over but we got a notice on our door saying our music was too loud one day. It also said that if we got another complaint within 10 days we would have to vacate. Went and talked to the apartment manager about it and she said that it was probably where we had our radio in the living room and that we should move it…so we did. And then she also said maybe we should talk to our neighbors and exchange phone numbers in case it got too loud again. So we did that to. So it has been almost a month now since we received that notice. We had planned on having some people over this saturday and so we went and talked to our neighbors and made sure it was ok and they all said it was. Party ended up happening and the next day we got a call from the apartment manager and she said she was going to have a sheriff come over and give us an eviction notice and we would have to be out of our apartment in 24 hours. She was very rude to me and my roomate on the phone saying we have no respect for anyone and that this will go on our records and noone will ever rent to us again. I have perfect rental history for the last 6 or so years that I have lived on my own and don’t want this to go on my rental history. I really need help with this. Can they really have us out on the street in 24 hours? Or are they just trying to scare us?

IF THEY DECIDE TO GO THAT ROUTE, THEN THEY HAVE TO HAND SERVE YOU WITH A CERTIFIED DOCUMENT. THEN IF YOU AREN’T OUT BY THEN, THEY HAVE TO HAVE EITHER A COURT OFFICER OR PROCESS SERVER HAND DELIVER A COURT SUMMONS SO YOU BOTH CAN TALK TO A JUDGE ABOUT IT. CHECK YOUR CITY HALL FOR HELP AND ADVICE FOR YOUR LANDLORD/TENANT RIGHTS QUESTIONS AND ISSUES. GOOD LUCK! THEY CAN’T GET AWAY WITH JUST TELLING YOU TO GET OUT BY THE WEEKEND! YOU HAVE RIGHTS. IF THEY THREATEN TO CALL AUTHORITIES, LET THEM, THEY WON’T BE ABLE TO DO A THING TO YOU, IF YOU OBVIOUSLY LIVE THERE. JUST HOPE OR KNOW YOU HAVE NO WARRANTS.

    But what if you just got a notice to quit because your downstairs neighbor complains that your 1 year old son plays, walks, etc. to loud but you pay your rent on time and nothing else is wrong. Why should you be asked to move? And have negative information put on your credit report (without even having gone to court), making it extra difficult to get a new apartment. That doesn’t seem fair. That does seem like the “man” hating on you. Especially when your being asked by others, “why do you live here when most of the people living here are of Russian and/or Hispanic descent? That’s hateful and discriminatory!!

    They’re just trying to scare you. First they need to serve you an eviction notice. Then you have to go to court within the next couple of days (it will say the date and time on the eviction notice). after you go to court you’ll have 7 days to vacate the primacies or they can throw your stuff out on the curb after the 7 days. I hate land lords, money grubbing a_ _ holes! We got screwed over by one. Our upstairs bathtub was about to come threw the floor into our living room at this one place we lived at. We complained and complained but nothing was done about it. I guess we complained to much because the first time we were a day late w/our rent they evicted us!

    yeah maybe your right……. but maybe your bitterness and ignorance (or lack of understanding) and especially your seemingly quick to judge and compare other people…. when thinking about them as tenants of course…. is one of the reasons we have so many people living under bridges (since i cant relate to this directly i do wonder why many of these homeless people prefer living under a bridge? ………… is it possible that maybe its because they would rather that then deal with unrealistic nagging land lords like you that probably act this way because they get bored and lonely and feel some kind of relief (again this is something i do not completly understand) sick and sadistic relief (through my eyes) from causing grief and/or pain in other peoples lives!!!!!!! yes i completely agree with myself…….. that is sick and sadistic….. kinda makes me feel sorry for those type individuals. well i truely hope the next time you decide to judge another you catch yourself long enough to realize (and accept—- if you dont have any kind of acceptance its quite possible that you might want to do some soul searching!!!!!!) that person your about to judge or label or ‘discriminate’ is a human being such as yourself…. and is just as unique and unlike any other as yourself……… and is far from perfect as yourself…….. and has feelings just as you do!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! well maybe then you will be able to find common ground with your tennants!

    Wouldn’t you love that. I understand that sometimes people are not responsible or that some rather buy other things than pay there rent on time or even at all, but not everyone is like that some are really going through tough times and not everyone is fortunate enough to be able to own a place. You even have landlords that evict tenants because they have other plans for their building or house like selling. So they try to provoke you into anything. Hopefully your notjerk(and I’m being nice) and you can at least find out the reason before ruining someones chance. Don’t get me wrong some landlords have reason but some are just heartless.

    ok I have lived in my apartment for 8 years. me , my husband and our young children. Its rent controlled and in california. Our agreemen states we can pay late if w e pa y a late fee. we told the owner we would be 2 weeks late. we paid it exactly 2 weeks late. We recieved a notice in themail saying a complaint had been filed. Our manager comes back and says that the owner wants us to pay an additional 400 if we want him to forget the eviction. I went to the court house and got a copy of the complaint. I filled out the answer with legal aid. but have not paid to file it yet. I have NEVER been served and havent gotten a summons yet. My question is should i wait to be formally served. I read that i have to be served and if i am not served correctly or not served at all then i can get it thrown out… any advice.

    To the arrogant “Landlord”, The remarks you’ve made about people being evicted are very ignorant! Coming from a landlord, I’m NOT “amazed”. People go through things in life that are sometimes out of their control. Life happens! It has nothing to do with people needing to “grow up and act responsible”. You would find it “humorous” that people (with families) are being evicted because you have a place to lay your head at night. I know it may be hard for “you” to comprehend, but some people actually have a hard enough time just putting food on the table. You shouldn’t judge a book by it’s cover because it’s not always “what you see – is what you get”. You are no different from anyone else who’s been evicted, so you are not immune to life’s circumstances. I understand landlords have to do what they have to do, but until you’ve walked in someone else’s shoes, don’t judge. The economy is bad for everyone that’s why there are so many forclosures, which is a form of an eviction, but by you being a “landlord” you wouldn’t understand that. Bad things happen to good people, don’t think it can’t/won’t happen to you. So get off your ‘high horse’ and stop putting other people down for their situations. A person’s circumstances does not define who they are!!!!!!!!

    Hi I was wondering about my situation.

    I was living in my first apartment and moved out before my lease was up, I payed rent and all was well. I don’t recall if I gave proper written notice(I was young at the time, I didn’t know better) but I informed the manager handling my lease that I was going to move out at the end of my lease.

    I have since lived at two different apartment complexes and am trying to get into a new apartment complex when come to find out that I have an eviction record. I then asked the previous places about this which they denied having seen an eviction(go figure, if I did they certainly wouldn’t rent to me) and come to find out it was filled in march of the same year I moved out. The place I’m currently living at didn’t see it on my record when they screened me in July of the same year however it showed up on a record 2 months shy of a full year? What should I do about this? I’m currently in touch with the issuers of the rent and the new owners of my first apartment(also go figure that the new management started around the same time of my eviction) does anyone have an Idea?

    Oh, and btw obviously I was never served the eviction in the first place and they had my phone number. I also gave the keys with my last months rent which they collected.

    I completely agree with you. I am in the process of eviction right now, with a young child and a fiance, He cannot not work and I have been trying to keep up with the “high rent” that seems to be coming our way now, and for the month of May I unfortunately got sick, could not work, no form of payment, but my child tax, thinking that MAYBE my landlord or owner of the building would understand my situation and even ALLOW for 1 month a payment plan, would not happen, so now I am without a home, pushed the eviction date, waiting to go to the Tribunal, so that I can have a bit longer with a roof over my head and hoping I am given even a bit more time so I do no have to be on the street. They act like they are the richest most perfect people there are and do not understand circumstances that come up in life either. Like it has never or will never happen to them. And sorry, MOST landlords, don’t pay what we pay they actual get a discount. So they do not know or feel what we are going through. Thinking maybe rent can be late so maybe I can eat..They don’t know and it is true they need to not judge before they know how it actual feels!

    I do know and I did fight it, that you cannot not be discriminated against if you have children. A 2 year old is going to make noise and there is nothing they can do about it. I felt so bad I actually took away any loud toys that I knew my 10 month old could play with. I then decided this is not fair at all, I checked with the landlord and tenant act and seen that you cannot be discriminated against with children, so them giving you an eviction over noise is a no. Something I would look into. You also have the right usually with courts with a city to make noise between certain times. Look into that also.

Now do I still need to go to the Tribunal if I am out before the day? And if I go, what are they going to do about the rent owing? When I do not have a home? And how long do they usually give you when the Tribunal votes against you? Please help, young and lost here…Thank you

    Believe this, my landlord lives with stepping stones of me. When she leaves notes on our doors,it’s all we can do to not throw stones. We hold our tounges. But this has gone to far. Not only are our children..under the age of 8 NOT allowed to play in our front yard grassy area, sidewalks and court yards, anything ANYTHING found in the porches, flower pot handing on steps or otherwise will be considered abandoned and taken. I have taken them to the Town twice already…won the first case which was how much they were trying to raise our rent for the rent controlled apartments…and THEN trying to tell us that due to the new windows installed we would not be permitted to put in our air conditioners. Mind you, these apartments do not have central air OR FANS. So I took them to the town again and within 24 hours we had them installing our air conditioners. BUT, not in the front windows…where the bedrooms and living rooms are…hense I am in the back room by the air conditioning reading all of this…trying to learn our rights. Most of the people in my neighborhood are afraid to speak up…in fact, yesterday she parked illegally and I yelled out the window if she didn’t move her car I would call the police. She is insane. The WHOLE block went and bought swimming supplies and played on the grass today…temp 95…we were so BEGGING her to come say something, my italian temper mixed with the columbians, it would have been a hot mess! So, I am taking them to court to see if they can really tell our children to stay inside and not play in the grass of their own fron yard? we have a park close by, but when we get home from work and cooking dinner, they are to young to go on their own…advise?

    My landlord is asking for 2 months rent for me being late in June 08′. I received the court summons and it said to pay 848.26 (rent, late fee, and court fee) before the court date, which was paid in full. My landlord is asking for the full amount of 1556.26 (this amount includes June’s rent). Went to court but actually showed up late and the judge gave the landlord possession of the premesis, I wasn’t there to defend myself but I am going to appeal for another hearing. Can anyone tell me if the landlord can ask for two months rent once eviction papers have been filed and the month that was late was paid in full. This is the first time I have ever been late before. My landlord says that the court papers or the summons don’t matter because they can ask for whatever they want???

    Back in June, I had a car accident and my husband broke his ankle. We were served with papers a few weeks later because we had fallen behind on our “weekly” rent. Once we received the papers, I called the landlord and set up a time to talk to him. Once I explained the situation to him, he agreed to put us on a budget. Meaning, put the PDB on the left side of the page and bringing us totally current. With the understanding that I would pay SOMETHING on the PDB…I never agreed to an amount, only to pay something on it. We shook hands and I thought it was a done deal…NOPE!!!! Yesterday while I was at work, my husband calls to inform me that a NC Sherriff had just left our home with a WRIT and we had to be out by Wednesday..THIS WEDNESDAY! My question is…If he is accepting rent from us and although we arent paying a large amount on the PDB, but paying something, can he evict us??

    I’m not sure what your state legalities are, but in AZ your property manager can actually ask for rent up to the end of your original lease or until she can re rent the unit, whichever comes first. This is inconvenient for you, but you have to look at it from the manager’s aspect too. They now have to clean the unit, bring it up to par with any maintenance or cosmetic issues that may need to be fixed and market the unit all at the expense of the property management company. They aren’t taking in an income on the unit until it is rented where as if you had abided by your lease, there would be income and minor expenses for maintenance. Good luck with everything.

    Thank you for your comments. My mother and I are being evicted because we couldn’t pay July’s rent because I was out of town and my car broke down. I couldn’t just stay where I was so she sent me the money to have it fixed. When we did get the rent(which was toward the end of July), the manager refused it and said that she was sending us for eviction. Then August rolled in and we asked what to do about August rent and she said it was too late, she’d already sent it to their attorney. What gets me is that she REFUSED rent BEFORE it was ever sent for eviction, then filed it. So for those people like the arrogant landlord, one financial crisis and change everything. Now, although my mom can afford ANY apartment in this area, we can’t get one because of the eviction.

    I rented an apt and was unable to relocate. A friend of mine agreed to take over the apt and pay the rent until I could make the final move. The friend does drink a lot and often gets into verbal confrontations – this happened once. I was verbally told he could not be on the property because he as a threat to the neighbors. He did not leave because the notice I received of violation did not say he had to leave. The manager told the other neighbors he was not allowed on the property. He was turned in again for being on the property and the same night – he fell asleep with the stove on. The smoke alarm came on and the security guard was called to the apartment. Another lease violation was filed for endangering the apt and neighbors. Today I was told an eviction notice was being sent to me at the apt. What are my responsibilities. Lease is in my name.

    Thank you so much for standing up for people who at times don’t have a voice. I am a single mother of two and I have always paid my rent. Recently I have lost my job and an eviction is in my near future. Not only am I dealing with job loss also my car just broke down! One thing after another. I am so embarrassed and have never been in this situation at least there are people out there who understand.

    I moved into my appartment almost five months ago, I am now being evicted. My landlord for the past five months has been asked by me to give me a lease to sign. he has failed to do so. I have not been served with any pappers stateing that I have any noise omplaints, or pet violations, but he has called me twice for noise violations, we were not being loud. I have a medicle issue that makes it difficult for me to sleep at night due to severe slep apneia where I cant breath and I snore, but I stop breathing at night so I stay up through out the night because I cant sleep. The rent has always been paid, in an agrement with the landlord we have been alowed to pay my rent in two payments through out the month. But last monthe I was unable to pay the second half of the rent, due to loosing my job due to cut backs due to the fuel price in my trucking company I worked for. When I finally got the money, I tried to give it to him and he said he didn’t want it anymore. He told us to put it towards another appartment and to get out of his. My landlord enters my appartment when were not home without notice, and we were up early in the am around 3 in the morning because I was having a tough night of not breathing and I had turned purple a couple of times while asleep, so I decided to stay up with my fiance and watch tv, and they called the cops saying we were being too loud. After that next morning the landlord told me that he didnt want the next months rent to just get out. Is there anything i can do?

    Our landlord served us with a 60 day notice of termination of tenancy. (We are in California and have lived in the same place for over 12 years.) We have until December 30 to vacate. We found another place and will be out of here by the Dec 30 deadline. However, with the extra and unancipated costs of getting a new place, we didn’t have the money to cover the entire amount of rent for December. (We made a partial payment.) Now the landlord is threatening to serve us with a 3 day Notice to Quit.

    Can the landlord serve us with a 3-day Notice to Quit after he’s already served a Notice of Termination of Tenancy?

    Too bad its normally the landlords that don’t respect the neighbors.
    They are the ones always sneaking into the tenants apartments stealing from them.

    I’ve had 3 different landlords now steal everything from food to money to Drugs to porno movies from me.

    I always change the locks!

    If your land lord says the fire department needs a copy of the key tell them to fuck off because thats a Lie.
    The fire department could care less about a lock on your door thats what they have a pry bar for!

    Could you imagine the fire man fiddling with keys to open your door LOL

    We were given a 3 day notice…then an hour later, another.

    They read the same except that the first had a date of Feb. 19, 2009 and the second had a date of Jan. 19th, 2009.

    Do we have legal ground to use the first one and get it caught up within the days prior to the Feb. 19th notice??

    Also, the second one doesn’t even have a box checked how it was delivered.

    I moved out of my apt nov 1st because i felt my life was in danger living where i was because of one of my roommates. i gave my roommates a 30 day notice on oct like 26th, and even paid for nov even tho i wasnt living there. i had been trying to get my name off the lease all of november and even in october but my roommates werent doing their part to get my name off. then in december they didnt pay rent so got evicted. but since my name is on the lease, my name also went with the eviction even tho i wasnt living there. i have documents proving i wasnt there at the time of the eviction and had every intention of going to court to keep it from my record but the notice i had received never had a court date and then shortly after i received another notice saying i was to vacate premises (again dont live there). what am i supposed to do now to fight it from being on my record? please help!

    well, i do see the side of the landlords, some times renters really do suck and are scummy people. but in most cases, this is not true. if it was true, people wouldn’t rent to other people. soe times people do fall on hard times, like what happened to me. i was attacked by a psych patient a work and did some damage to my right shoulder and thorasic spine. i can’t work and the comp carier has been contesting the case so no income for a few months. fortunately for me i am actually in aland contract so he needs to forclose, not evict, but i do feel your pain because he has been trying to evict. i still have time, but i do have to admit, even if i didn’t, it’s rather cold and icy under the bridges where i live. troll might notmind the cold under the bridges, but i do…. brrrr…..

    1. If you do not attend the Landlord / Tenant hearing, you will lose. A Judgment is made against you for the past amount due. This Judgment can be taken to the County Court House and entered in record at the Prothonotaries Office and kept there for 5 years. This can be done every 59 months. Therefore, stays on your credit report.

    2.if your lease states “no pets”, then it’s no pets regardless if you brought it or found a stray.

    3. If you’re getting a notice to appear in court – then appear in court. The Judge will base his/her decission on testomy provided. If you move out of your apartment / house and leave a room-mate there to live, go to the management office andhave your name removed from the lease, If not, you might be held liable for damages later.

    4. If the landlord wants you out they must give you a Notice to Quit. It does not have to be handed to you directly, it can be mailed or posted on the property. As a rule, a 15 day notice to quit is required. A landlord cannot evict you – the local court does. So, if it is not from a court – it’s probably illegal.

    This is just my opinion based on doing evictions for the court. You best bet is to contact your Legislators office and ask for a copy of your State’s Landlod / Tenant Act (or law). Every State has one. You can also Google / Bing ** yourstate, Landlord Tanant Law.

    hope this helps some of you

    I have recieved 2 eviction notices from my management company, and they tried to send me a certified letter as well (i havent gone to the post office to pick it up).

    My issue is that i have paid my rent one time. my roommate and i sent a check on the 2nd of the month. around the 15th the apt left a notice that we had not paid our rent. we mailed another check a day later. a few days after that, someone came to my apartment and handed my roommate an eviction notice (notice saying that if we did not pay within 3 days we must surrender the premises to the landlord. if we do not make a complete payment within that time or surrender possession of the premises, the landlord will commence summary proceedings to recover possession of the apt).

    we tried calling multiple times and would get no answer, if someone did answer they said they would call back and never did. when we finally got through, one time they said their system was down and another time the lady told us that they had so many checks and were behind.we checked our bank statements and neither checks had been cashed.

    a few days later, i recieved another notice in the mail (exact same as the first one) and a few days after that i found a card from the post office. the management company was trying to send me a certified letter. i havent picked it up.

    i tried calling again after that. no answer. the next day they called my roommate and said that they had gotten all 4 checks (2 from each of us). they called back a few hours later saying that they only had 3. weird, since we send both of our checks together.

    i called them back and the man i spoke to was dissmissive and hung up on me twice before i was able to ask if they had received all 4 checks. he finally check the 3rd time and told me that they had all 4.

    i feel like i have been harrassed. we tried to pay the rent twice and they didnt receive it due to their negligence. is there anything i can do? we’ve only been living there for a few months, we have a 2 yr lease, and i dont want to have to deal with this again.

    if anyone can offer me some advice, that would be great! thanks!

    I work a low paying job that has cut back hours and I explained to my manager by leaving a msg after hours for Jan rent. We have a 3 day grace period, so I received a callback from the apt manager and I explained that I could pay half my rent on the 4th and the remainder plus fees on the 15th. I hung up the phone believing we had an understanding and then I come home last Wednesday to find a notice of eviction to appear in court because I’m being sued by the apartments that I live at.

    Keep in mind that I spoke to the manager and explained to her and she took half of my rent and when I called back, she lies and claims she called me several times to tell me that they could not accept partial payment, they needed my full rent. Which are lies, I actually have a Vonage acct and it shows all incoming and outgoing calls. I also gave my cell phone number and I can very easily look up my phone records to see who called, mind you I also have caller id.

    It’s obvious they want to evict me whether I the remainder balance or not. Because I told them yesterday that I just got paid and had the balance and I was accused of not wanting to pay my rent and told that I should pay because I owe it, even though they wouldn’t meet me halfway and put something in writing that if I paid that they would stop Eviction proceedings in court.

    I am halfway in my lease and I wonder if I should look for an apartment now, I’ve thought about just living in my car. I want to take a class that asks for a $100 deposit that could get me a better job. I also could save money. I have relatives that could help but I’m pretty stubborn about asking them for help, I feel like I’m an adult and should take responsibility for my bad choices in life.

    But my question is, what is I go to court and say that I’ve moved and they don’t have to evict me. Does that still count as an eviction. Also I will be breaking my 12 month contract, how will that work for the next apartment I try to rent. Will they see that I was under a contract and broke it and not give me an apartment?

    At my old apartment complex, we had some issues with getting our name in the PGE bill. we were late with rent a couple times, but had ALWAYS paid the late fee. We did recieve notices to pay our PGE bill, but we kinda forgot, and then we got an eviction notice. or to be technical a ” 30 day notice to move-or be evicted.-” legally on the leasing agreement, it was supposed to be tagged onto our rent. so, I guess what my question is, is if that is technically an eviction if we were out by the 30 days, and if it is, then why did they break their own laws to their lease? because now its harder then ever to find a place to stay.

    well to all those in aptments GET THE HELL OUT they get u no where your better off finding a land lord vs rental agents they do not care what your probs are. with that said in my past ive delt with alot of slumlords/landlords alike in most cases if you are past due on rent and dont really have an arguement of their practices or evidence of their wrong doing then it will prob go in their favor.they like to give you these notices to quit basicly saying give me my money or go to court and give me my money and some. meaning court cost, damages ,etc. from there if they take you to court you normly have any where from 7 to 14 buisness days to go to court with your case .it helps if you take every thing you owe them to court with you.if you plan on staying where you live in most cases they will tell you to just pay the land lord if you have it there with you and send you on your mary way.as for the land lord winning the case and you being FORCED to move i myself havent been that far with it but would figure you to have anywhere from a couple of days to a week or two after jugment has been awarded i hope it helps some of you since there is a buntch of questions here and not enough answers.

I didn’t know it was on my record cause I didn’t really go 2 court about it plus I owed them a little more than 6,000 dollars but I gave them that amount to move in the place so I thought I would be cool cause they still had that money which would have covered what I owed. Questions: Shouldn’t they have just have just taken the up front money then called it even? Can I get this off my background check?

    It’s depressing to see all these bad experiences posted here. I have to say one thing which will always help you: GET A LAWYER! I know they are expensive, but as you can see from all the problems listed above, getting evicted is also very expensive.

    Plus, if you can’t afford a lawyer, you can still go to your local LEGAL AID center. EVERY big city and many rural areas have legal aid centers that provide free legal assistance to people with low incomes. If you have a low income, try to get a free lawyer; if you have a high income–pay for a cheap, small-time lawyer!

    I just got a Eviction from my landlord today and they said that they wanted me out because we had differances in view and about getting repairs done or fixed. I currently live right now in Lakewood,Ohio. When I called my landlord and his wife. I asked why they where Evictining me and what where the grounds. They hand type this letter and did not give a creditable reason. but, she told me, that the reason why they where Eviting me and told me I had to be out in 30 days. Was not because I didn’t pay my rent, wasn’t late on my rent payments, did not damage the apartment ,threaten them or any other teants. The simple reason they gave was because they did not like me and said that we had major differances and views about repairs that needed to be done. Now keep in mind I am on section 8 and the city of lakewood came over and inspected the property and sighted the landlord for failing to keep the proerpty up to city code and section 8 failed the rental unit.

    The problem that I asked my landlord to fix and repair was a electrical issue that several electrition told them that need to be changed and the fuse boxes where out dated and a fire starts due to shorting out wires and several broken windows that have been broken since I moved in and they promesed would be repaired and never did or when they fix thing they do thing so cheaply that they break again and have to be repaired again. When ever I asked them to fix things they kept on giving me exueuses they don;t have the money to do the repairs, that they have several properties in forcloseure and that are having troulbe keeping tenants. I told them why do I need to know this and care to know this.It is not my conceren. All I want is my broke windows fixed and my elctrical issues in the building repaired so they apartment would not catch on fire. But, my landlord and his wife keep on giving me millions of excueses of why they can’t or wont fix problems that need to be fixed or count on me to repair them.Which I do and then sent them the sales slips to cover my cost of having to do the repairs my self.

    When I called them today they told me the reason they wanted me out was because they disliked me and because we had differances about doing repairs and getting repiars done. I am wondering by law can your landlord have a right to Evit you based on personal reason and because you have differances in view about getting repairs done. Now the funny thing is in this whole issue is Section 8 and the city sighted them for failing to comply with contracts and city codes. Now does my landlord have a right to Evict me based on personal reason and just cause they dislike me. To me this seem fishy and illegal. Is their anything I can do fight this and take them to court. The thing that they dont relalize I have saved all my sales slips and invoices that I wrote up for them when I did painting, hole repairs, landscaping and maintance. I also have always paid my rent on time and sometime several months in advance. So can some help me in this and give me adivce what I can do fight this in court. But, be for warned do not rent off ——————–.

    My father in law is 77 and was just served with an eviction notice.For late rentt payments.There have been numerous complaints that he has made to the land lord about severe plumbing problems.A very leaky roof.Which the plumbing problems have caused my father in law to actually slip and fall.He has said that he doesnt thinkthat it hurt him enough to go get medical attention.However he has suffered back pain since the fall.None of the complaints have been address be the landlord at all.As a matter of f act the maintance man is aware of the problems and has told us that the land lord refused to fix any thing because my elderly father in law was behind on his rent.He lives on a fix income and is retired from jacksonville sherrifs office.What i need to know is I am somewhat familiar with the landlord tentant rights and obligations.Also there is faulty electrical problems that have been repoted and ignored.We are going to report the ignored problem with in the 5 days of the first eviction notification to the clerk of courts..I need to know exactly how long it could ultimatley take before he has to vacate premisses.We also hava a small child who resides in the residence.And do intend to make it take as long as possible.

    Can someone other than your landlord who is the only name listed on the rental agreement evict you?

    I got a Notice to Terminate my lease.My neighbor played her stereo loud every morning and I asked her to turn it down,called the landlord and the police.It didnt stop so one morning I figured since she doesnt think it’s loud or just doesnt care I’ll bang on the floor and maybe she will get the hint I can really hear it in my apartment.Later that day I got a Notice to Terminate lease.I can’t understand why such drastic measures for that.I admitted it wasn’t in my best judgement to do it and agreed to not do it again.I never had a write up here or any other apartment ever in 15 years of renting and now I’m being asked to leave.I get the feeling my landlord just doesnt want to address the issue anymore and thinks it’s easier to get rid of me than deal with someone totally rebellious.This sucks and I don’t have a clue what to do.

    i recieved an eviction notice today, a 60 day notice because ive been here for 7 yrs. i was yelling at my son and i guess the apartment manager was walking by and heard me so she comes to my door and as soon as i answer her knock at the door she tells me i need to calm down. not, is everything ok or is there a problem, she tells me to calm down so what do i do? close my front door, no slamming or her moving out of the way to avoid getting hurt. i just closed the door cause i was already upset and then i have this person knocking on my door to tell me to calm down. so she puts an eviction notice on my door, with no reason, just leave in 60days. can i be evicted for this?

    My case is odd, cuz after living in the same complex for 23 yrs i got a got a notice to quit, Ie it said we are not renewing your lease be out of the apt on july 1st, no reason givin,, my attroney told me to stop all rent payments to them, never been late with rent ever, he also advised me to file a appel when it goes in front of a local majestrate, as the appel can give from 2 to 12 months before the case is heard by a county court judge, ALso they only gave me a 30 day to quit notice, my attroney said the law in pa is they have to give you a 90 notice to quit on a yr to yr lease, so they fouled up right there, also the lease goes from june 30th to june 30th the next year, but the rent is to be payed on the 4th of each month, so my rent is actully payed to july 4th, it was a change they made 2 yrs ago,and they never put that in the lease, the lease says payment on the 1st of each month not the 4th, so they did breach the lease on these 2 things, I also seen in that lease that if you owe money to them that they have the right to take and sale your possesions to collect any back money, i found out they can not do that period in any usa state so thats another thing i got them on, and i am wondering what if the local majestrate goes in my favor,,can the apt firm then also make a appeal to a higher court if they lose?

    I have a big problem. I have lived in this apartment complex for 12 years. Alway paid my rent on time and no other problems. The owners went and sold the complex to someone else and now they are saying that because I am a full time college student that I’m going to be asked to move. Is this legal?
