Customer Question

Hello, I have an issue where I live, I had an accident, I hit the building with my car, needless to say I was in Schock, However this was due to a medical condition, they assured me I would have a place to stay, Now I'm being ask to leave by the 12th of september, If I leave they wont put an eviction,
JA: What state is this in? And how old is the car?
Customer: Ohio 2009
JA: Have you talked to a lawyer yet?
Customer: no
JA: Anything else you think the lawyer should know?
Customer: yes, when they ask what happed I couldnt expalin it at first I thought it may be mechanical, my answers and comprehnsion were not on point, The property manager stated to move the car in the overflow lot, I thought he meant me. He screamed and yelled, and because I didnt follow his commands I guess thats why, I have shown them my drs letter. I agreed to make payment arrangements, for some reason my staying is an issue, they want me to leave by the 12th and make payment arrangements. I have asked for the form to make payment they will give it to me after the 5th, you have until the 5th to pay or rent is late

Thank you for using JustAnswer. I am Loren, a licensed attorney, and I will do whatever I can to answer your question and provide excellent service.

Expert:  Loren replied 10 months ago.

What is the basis for the eviction? Do you have a written lease? Have you paid your rent?

Customer: replied 10 months ago.
Have a lease rent due no later than 5th
Expert:  Loren replied 10 months ago.

Thank you for the additional information.

They have no basis to evict you if you have a written lease and are not in default of that lease.

If you were negligent and caused damage then they can sue you for that, but they must comply with the terms of the lease.

Customer: replied 10 months ago.
What do I do
Expert:  Loren replied 10 months ago.

Give them your insurance information and tell the landlord they have no right under the lease to evict you when you are not in breach.

Expert:  Loren replied 10 months ago.

Additionally, if they try to evict you when you are not in default, you can countersue them for breach of the warranty of quiet enjoyment and unlawful eviction.
