Eviction

questions & answers

Question: My fiancé and I are in a month to month lease. On 8-26-16 a guest of ours that was visiting the state was accused of crime on property. The next day the landlord stated we had to leave that day or we could pay for next month's rent and be evicted afterwards. They stated a eviction would show on credit affectively making it nearly impossible to rent anywhere else. On the rental agreement there was no notice stating we needed to advise them if we had a guest staying longer than 14 days and he has not been formally charged. What options do I have.

Answer: This depends upon the terms of the lease and the nature of the criminal activity. May leases have language permitting eviction on an expidited basis if there has been criminal activity on the premises by either the tenant or a guest.
