386 Questions Answered
- Q. The landlord sold the home, whom should I get eviction notice? Have only received a Symon from the landlord.
- A: First, look at your lease. What does your lease say about sales? Some say the owner has the right to give you 30 or 60 day notice to vacate. Others are silent. If the lease is silent on a sale, the buyer takes subject to the lease. Therefore, they must comply with the lease as the new landlord. Second, regardless of the method of notice, the new owner cannot just throw out your things. This is a wrongful eviction and you should be able to sue him for money for several torts, and possibly bring criminal charges for conversion/trover. If the landlord enters your rental property and throws your items out and/or changes the locks, call the police to note the trespass and wrongful eviction. Thereafter, if you want, contact a lawyer.

- Q. My lease is up in one day. Can i be put out?
- A: If you a residential tenant, you are not kicked out if you hold over. You will have to pay any rent or fees as a hold over tenant. If the landlord wants you out the following steps must be taken: (1) demand to vacate; (2) file dispossessory affidavit in court; (3) serve the affidavit on you (personally or through tack and mail) (4) give you 7 days to answer by filing in court (5) attend a hearing (6) give you 7 days to move out after a hearing (7) get a writ and schedule a time for a deputy sheriff to appear for the eviction This takes more than 3 weeks. However, you should (1) answer the dispossessory affidavit if served; and (2) attend the hearing even if you have moved out.
- Q. How can stores require that I wear a mask with these laws in place. How can I do this without breaking the law.
- A: Stores are private property. They can require customers to wear certain things to enter their store. Before the pandemic, you saw on certain store doors, "NO SHOES, NO SHIRT, NO SERVICE" It's the same concept.
