Customer Question

My sister was served a 5 day notice to vacate by the sheriff. I live here too but I am not on the lease. My agreement was with my sister and I have paid her rent. Do I have to leave in 5 days or is there a way that I could petition the court for more time since I was never notified by my sister of the eviction?
