I was evicted because the landlord refused to let me re-certify.

This answer was rated:

I was evicted because the landlord refused to let me re-certify. I have tried to get appt and they were always busy to make one. I am disabled and 63 years old as well as being a power of attorney for my mother who is in a nursing home. I have live here for 27 years and always paid my rent on time. I have never been in trouble with the police. I must be out Friday the 3rd. Can you help me?
Hello,

Thank you for using JA. I don't know how much help I will be able to provide but I will give it a shot. I need a little info so I can figure out what is going on.
.
When you say re-certify, are you talking about a governmental housing assistance program?
.
Have you been formally evicted through the courts with an order of eviction having been entered against you?
.
Are you able to pay the rent without any government assistance?
.
Are you delinquent on the rent or has the lease expired?
.
How did the landlord prevent you from re-certifying?
.

Yes, I am evicted in court.
No, I am not able to pay rent without government assistance.I am on disability.
I am not deliquent on my rent. I always pay my rent on time.
The always said that they were to busy. I have a witness you heard me make a call to make an appt. and I was refused.
Ok, unfortunately it is as I feared. If the landlord has already obtained an order of eviction that allows him to physically remove you and your property on Friday, then the only one who could stop that from happening is the landlord himself. I researched Ohio law and I don't see any type of "stay of eviction" motion that could be filed to get a little more time.
.
So unless you can work out something with the landlord for some more time to move, he will be able to have the Sheriff physically evict.
.
I am sorry that the news couldn't have been better, but sometimes there is simply no legal recourse that can stop something like this.
