Ask a Lawyer and Get Answers to Your Legal Questions
Thank you for your question. I am sorry to hear about your situation.
To the extent that the lease supports 60 days notice and that notice was not given, they are able to sue you to hold you financially responsible for their damages as result of not receiving the proper notice. To the extent that they decide to sue and get a judgment against you, you may have to pay more (by way of court fees) than they are asking for right now. To the extent that you can handle the debt as quickly as possible, you may want to take whatever steps you can to pay this off sooner rather than later, otherwise it is possible they will sue (even if you are making payments). They are under no obligation to accept a payment plan from you. So to lessen the chance of litigation, you may want to propose the best payment plan you can that gets them paid off as quickly as possible. The quicker they see their money, the less of a chance you stand of being sued.
