I believe he is taking me, I have heard it from someone that he maybe going after illieaga eviction. there was no lease signed. the home was not ready to be moved into yet. he was doing the work free as my sister was moving in to the unit. I was never informed that he breached the original aggrement. I did see him on day 1 tearing off wall paper of the upper unit. then next day I saw him he was prepping the lower.

he said a job this size wouild cost 6000, said hed cut a break and 2500 as he said the job was half done,. if it were half done. then the entire lower should have been done. not half.

the story is very complicated. I never asked any one to leave. they left on their own.. and now are saying they want to take me to court.
Real Estate Lawyer: Thelawman2, Lawyer replied 24 days ago

So they are saying that you evicted them and they are suing for that, even though you never said that you were evicting them. As long as you didn't deny them access to the location, then they wouldn't really have an argument that you evicted them.

What is the eviction process in Pennsylvania? We actually
We actually have a land contract that has defaulted to a rental, although there hasn't been an official status change. The woman we have as a landlord, claims to have left notices on our doors, but her story has changed on tht a few times. She lt a voice mail saying it was our ten day notice last Tues. I do know that it has to be in writing. We were in Michigan to see my mother this past weekend, had to spend Fri afternoon calling the Reynoldsville magistrate office, sheriff's office and state police because she was threatening to come to our home and throw out everything. I have checked with both the Reynoldsville and Brookville magistrate offices and there has not been a complaint filed. I did state during the insanity Friday that we would accept that as her ten day notice. Then Monday, we cut our trip a day short to drive back, she texts again saying she was going on to the property, were we there. She was told that we were on the road and would not be back u til late. At 10:45pm, we are about ten minutes from home and six minutes from cell dead zone, she sends us a msg telling us that we have 24 hrs to get all of our stuff gone because she is hiring people to come at 9am Wednesday, today, to get rid of everything. The state police said to call 911. But everyone says it's a civil matter and has no answers. Please help! What are our rights? … read more
