Hello and welcome! My name is ***** ***** I am a licensed attorney who will try my very best to help with your situation or get you to someone who can. There may be a slight delay in my responses as I research statutes or ordinances and type out an answer or reply, but rest assured, I am working on your question.
If you aren't under a fixed term lease, then under Utah law, the owner of the property can terminate your tenancy with a 15 day written notice. If you didn't vacate after that then they would have to pursue a formal eviction action in the courts to get a judgment of eviction and a writ of possession to have the sheriff force you to vacate. This typically takes another 3-4 weeks depending on the courts and the sheriffs schedules..
As an aside, in addition to being an attorney, I have also been a landlord for over 26 years...
You are very welcome. Glad to help. And they can't force you to vacate without having a legal judgment from the court in their hand so don't let them bluff you.
