Does an eviction notice have to have my name and be

Customer Question

does an eviction notice have to have my name and be notarized, when I was given and owned this property for years. The Real Estate Agent got the property from my aging aunt for $100.00! He has cut my lock off to enter the premises while I was not home and with no notice. And now he has given me 30 days to leave! I have the original signed paper from my aunt somewhere in my home. Is this legal for this realtor to have taken advantage of my aunt? And what are the steps I need to know to stop this illegal activity?

There is no legal requirement that a notice from a landlord to terminate a tenancy be notarized. However, it must list the tenant or occupant's name so as to notify that person that the tenancy is ending. If the name is ***** ***** as in the case of a squatter, the landlord can address it to "All Unknown Occupants", or "John or Jane Doe, et al"..


If you were given the property by aunt, did she sign a deed over to you and have it properly notarized?


Is aunt mentally incompetent so as to not be able to manage her own affairs?
