I am willing to pay more. I would rather text or email chat. I need some answer and guidance. I was unable to go to court due to a required medical appointment that was submitted to the court. The eviction judgement was a failure to vacate premise. Judgement was entered on 9/14/17 and I file a notice of appeal on 9/14/17. The sheriff gave me a 24-hour notice and I submitted in advance the notice of filing and courts of appeal order. The sheriff told me has every right to remove me. I filed another motion to stay. He stated he can evict me based mn statue subdivision 7 appeal eviction. My landlord stated we had a one year lease, when we signed a two-year lease was never giving a copy of the lease. There are emails confirming that she and her husband will cover hoa for two years and confirming the two-year lease before the actual meeting. She had a conversation with my husband and me. She had a conversation with my dad. The sheriff and Prosecuting attorney stated that doesn't apply. A lot of court document that supported the facts in my case were submitted. my fees were waived by the judge that enter the judgement. where did I go wrong? This sheriff was threatening me and already made assumption before he knew facts about my case.

I understand the importance of having an attorney represent you versus prose. The sheriff office did not care about an appeal and what the law stated. The attorney in the matter was aware of the appeal ahead of time, I also served him judge order. I try to avoid the sheriff posting. my land did this out of retaliation. she got in trouble for side payments, her behavior was uncomfortable where she would show up to my house five times in one day, there was broken key in our door she snap and was irritated stated it wasn;t there. we had bug and foundation, flooding problem since we moved in that was never repaired. what can we do post removal from the sheriff and landlord.

The sheriff told me has every right to remove me.

.

The sheriff is incorrect if you filed an appeal and also a motion for a stay of execution.. It would depend on how the judge ruled on you motion to stay as to whether that would indefinitely postpone any eviction.

.

Did the landlord submit a copy of your lease showing only one year?

.

Has your motion for the stay been heard yet and if so, what was the outcome?

I am sorry, I have to leave my office for a bit.. I will open the question up to other experts who should be able to help..

Expert:  Law Educator, Esq. replied 1 year ago.

Thank you for your question.

I am afraid that state law forbids any expert on this site from actually representing you or any other customer on the site. If you need local counsel for your appeal, please use the same sites used by other attorneys, http://www.hg.org or http://www.lexmundi.com

I understand the laws. I never said I wanted to act as my attorney. I just wanted legal advice. Thank you
Expert:  Law Educator, Esq. replied 1 year ago.
Thank you for your reply. Sorry for the misunderstanding, but the last thing you typed was:

"I was in the process of appealing to the court of appeal prior motion to stay the judge stated I didn't file them correctly and I need an attorney. the last motion he didn't make a ruling it was the same day the sheriff serve me papers" Sorry for the misunderstanding. First, MN Statute 504B.301 is the statute in question. In general in Section 4, it says that an appeal is automatic as part of filing an appeal. HOWEVER, there are some exceptions. The exception to the automatic stay on appeal is as follows: Subd. 7.Exception. Subdivisions 1, 4, and 6 do not apply in an action on a lease, against a tenant holding over after the expiration of the term of the lease, or a termination of the lease by a notice to quit, if the plaintiff gives a bond conditioned to pay all costs and damages if on the appeal the judgment of restitution is reversed and a new trial ordered. In such a case, the court shall issue a writ for recovery of premises and order to vacate notwithstanding the notice of appeal, as if no appeal had been taken, and the appellate court shall issue all needful writs and processes to carry out any judgment which may be rendered in the court. So, the court has to rule on your appeal stay and if they do not do so the sheriff is correct only if you DID NOT POST A BOND. If you posted a bond, then you are entitled to the stay according to the statute. However, if they evicted you and you win on appeal, you would be entitled to not only an order allowing you to move back, but a monetary award against the landlord can also be awarded to you.

You need to get your appeal filed and you need to explain in your appeal why the eviction order is not appropriate and should not have been granted, that is all you can do about this situation now that the court has ruled.
