Hello and I'm truly sorry to hear of your problem with housing. The right to evict for any violation is contained in your lease. It's hard to say how "Crime Free Housing" is defined there. If you don't stay, you will most likely be liable for the balance of the lease or whatever part of it that they don't find another tenant for. You may be able to either talk the management into letting you stay, or ask the judge to refuse their eviction request if they sue you. If the judge rules for them, you should ask for sufficient time to move.

does this mean although we were advised as to what to do and managements answer was to call the police, and at that time i questioned was that not grounds for our eviction and was told absolutely not. the complaint indicates it was due to a domestic dispute however there were no charges or reports taken. i feel that being in my personal opinion if you can lose your home for calling for protection than in that instance the next child who may be abused or woman will keep silent as not to lose her home.
