Are you on the verge of getting evicted from that apartment of yours? Do you not like the way your landlord treats and handles you and the other tenants? Apparently, you should not fret, because you actually have rights that you can exercise in order for you not to be harassed any longer, if ever you actually are. Unfortunately, a lot of these tenants do not have any idea as to what the different laws stipulated for them are, which is why they need to read this article to be more educated about these kinds of stuff. If you have been harassed by the landlord, read on further for more information and details on how you can make that harassment stop and finally be able to live in peace and harmony in your own life.
You need to learn about proper notification
You must know that your landlord does not have the full right or the responsibility to have you evicted from that apartment of yours if the court does not demand him to do so, so if the landlord has not had any negotiations with the court, you are safe. If the landlord wants you out because you have done a ton of things that have caused mishaps in his part, he will need to file a notice to be given to the court, just like the way people file a lawsuit, and then if the court so agrees, you will get the court order through another person, like a sheriff or a third party who is out of the situation. Some third parties do not like to give the notice to you personally, and some of then even just try to hurry it all up and hang the notice to the door. In some cases, these notices not delivered personally can mean that the case will be thrown out, because they have not made a proper delivery to the receiver. If you are not quite sure about the whole delivery situation, you need to have an attorney work for you as soon as possible.
Wonder what revenge eviction is?
Say for example, you, a tenant, have been trying to let your landlord know about a damage in the refrigerator but even after telling him for a month now, he still has not done anything in order to fix that broken refrigerator of yours. And then it has been like two months ever since you started to complain about a certain damage in your apartment, but still the landlord chooses to disregard the complaint and does nothing about it. And then you have suddenly received an eviction notice, that is what you call the revenge eviction. What must you do in order to deal with the situation?
