Hi- I am going to try to make this short.
My brother ( Jonathan) lives in Williamsport, PA. He rents an apartment
there from a landlord, not a company. The landlord allowed him to move in paying the first months rent only, contingent upon Jonathan paying a portion of the security deposit
with his rent every month.
He moved in on January 12th. He paid Jan, Feb, and March. He and his wife were both laid off their jobs, so he has not paid Aprils rent. The landlord sent him the following.
My brother waited until the last second to call me regarding this. I spoke with the Landlord, who claimed that he needed $1,000 tomorrow (Monday) and for me to overnight him a cashiers check. Banks are not open on Sunday. So, this is not possible.
He stated that if he doesn't have the money that the eviction
process with happen within days. Is this true? My brother has a three-year-old and a five-year-old. He also stated that Jonathan doesn't need to show up to court tomorrow if he gets the $1,000 from me. ( This seems very odd to me)
To be honest, it sounds like this guy has no idea what he is talking about. I do not see how if you are late one month that they can kick you out within a couple of days when you have kids. However, I am not an attorney, and I live in Orlando, FL. I am not even sure Williamsport, PA can be located on a map.
Is there anything in these papers or lease that stands out to you?
I do not want to play the sympathy card here, but we lost both our parents ( you can verify with our last name) We are in our twenties. We have absolutely no family!
