Good evening. What is the basis for the eviction? Does she have a lease in place?

Lawyer: LandlordTenantAnswer, Attorney replied 6 months ago

What are they alleging? Are they saying you are not on the lease or approved occupants?

I think so

Lawyer: LandlordTenantAnswer, Attorney replied 6 months ago

There needs to be a legal basis to evict. By that, I mean if there is a violation of the lease and too many occupants and/or occupants living there without permission, the landlord can proceed and evict.

Lawyer: LandlordTenantAnswer, Attorney replied 6 months ago

A tenant can not have people living in the rental without permission from the landlord and if this is what is happening and you did not vacate when she was placed on notice, the next step is to proceed through the court and evict, I am sorry to say.

Lawyer: LandlordTenantAnswer, Attorney replied 6 months ago

To stop the eviction it would need to be shown that you are legally allowed to be there and there is no violation.

Anne was extremely helpful. Her information put me in the right direction for action that kept me legal, possible saving me a ton of money in the future. Thank you again, Anne!!

ElaineAtlanta, GA

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.

Wonderful service, prompt, efficient, and accurate. Couldn't have asked for more. I cannot thank you enough for your help.
