Hello AnnIf you provided the LL with the proper Notice as required in your lease, then you can sue her for the wrongful eviction. She cannot make you leave before the lease without cause and providing the proper Notice is not cause. Obviously, at some point you are going to need to sue her for the security deposit.Did she put in writing that she wanted you out by noon today? Or was that verbal?
Writing will be more beneficial, but you can still sue her for the deposit. As to not paying the last month's rent - were you going to pay through Aug 31 even though you were moving out on July 15?
