Ask a Lawyer and Get Answers to Your Legal Questions
Hello! I am a licensed attorney, admitted to practice in state and federal court. I have a nearly 100% satisfaction rating so all that means is that you can count on me to help today. I’m sorry to hear about your situation. Generally, The court is only going to want to know where the individual lives so that way it can ensure that documents sent are certain to reach them. There is a highly unlikely chance that your leasing office or landlord would ever find out about his legal proceeding. In addition, it would be a breach of contract for them to terminate your lease simply because he put down that particular address. If your place is where he lays his head at night, my recommendation would be to have him put that address down. Because the court works through the mail system, the landlord should never even find out he’s dealing with this issue.
Also, although I provided an initial answer, it’s important that you are 100% satisfied. If you feel I have done so, please rate me 5 stars and let me know if you have any follow up questions. As a side note, you can also click here in the future to request me individually.
They only reason they would need to contact the leasing office is if they cannot find him. And plus, if he is not on the lease, then they wouldn't have anything to tell them anyway. So long as he communicates with them and stays responsible, then he will be fine:-)
Well, it wouldn't be illegal to be homeless unless he's required to find some regular housing consistent with an order of probation. Otherwise, the issues will be practical in nature in that the court nor his probation officer will know where to find him and they may go to the address of any associates (you) to find him.
It's my pleasure and best of luck!
