Eviction

questions & answers

Question: My boyfriend was renting a condo, he was the only one on the lease, he got arrested and the landlord talked to him amd he gave the ok to add me to the lease. She sent me an amendment to the lease (she couldn't print it), accepted partial payment of rent and came back 2 days later with cops telling me to leave the property since im not on the lease. Can she do that? What are my rights? ?

Answer: If the landlord sent you a signed amendment to the lease with your name on it and accepted payment that should be enough to establish a rental agreement. If you haven't already been 'evicted/ you could bring the signed amendment and proof of your payment to court. If you already were evicted you could file a lawsuit in Justice of the Peace Court for breach of contract or unlawful eviction and seek monetary damages for whatever losses you sustained.
