Ask a landlord-tenant lawyer and get answers ASAP
Hello: This isCustomer Welcome to JustAnswer! I am reviewing your post, and I will post my response very shortly. Thank you for your patience.
I am sorry to read about your difficulties.
Could you explain a little more?
Did the notice give you an option to cure? That is, notice to do something or quit if you cannot do something--if you cannot be in compliance?
What is your specific question?
Thank you for your cooperation,
Thank you for the information. Kindly give me a few minutes to review the information that you have provided and prepare my response. Please refrain from posting additional information.
Thank you for your patience.
Yes, you can be evicted. However, the Landlord/property management must use the Court system to remove you from the premises if you refuse to vacate after the expiration date on the notice. There is no self-remedy to eviction actions in South Dakota. This means that the property management/Landlord cannot change the locks, shut off your utilities in order to remove you from the premises. The property management must file eviction action in Court and serve you with the Summons and a copy of the Complaint so that you can respond and tell the Court why you must not be evicted, just like you did in your post here: no prior notice; no notice to cure violation; other Tenant doing the same thing and has not been evicted; etc. See South Dakota Codified Laws Chapter 21-16.
Goodluck with your case,
You are quite Welcome!
