Can I be evicted for failure to pay rent?
Not paying or not timely paying rent to your landlord is the most common reason for tenant eviction. Even if you are facing a difficult financial situation which causes you to fall behind on paying rent, don’t ignore your obligation to pay rent. Speak to your landlord to explore a resolution without a 3-day eviction notice or going to Court. Sometimes a landlord will work with you which may give you the extra time needed to get your finances back on track.
Can you fight an eviction?
To fight an eviction, you need an attorney experienced in landlord-tenant law.
