I'm Lucy, and I'd be happy to answer your questions today. I'm sorry to hear that this happened.

In order to answer your question, it would help to have the following information:

  • You mentioned a boarding house, but also a business. Is this a residential or commercial lease?
  • Do you have anything in writing, or are you currently month to month?
  • What is the reason for the 48 hours notice?
  • What state do you live in?
