Eviction

questions & answers

Question: Basically what happened is I signed a year lease with my landlord. We completed the entire year and moved out. Turns out they auto enrolled us into month to month without our consent. The bill started to rack up and we had no knowledge of it. They end up gettig a judgement against us without anyone of our knowledge. Its been about 4 years and i found out recently. Is there anyway i can dispute this? Do i not deserve my day in court?

Answer: Many written year-long leases specify that the rental agreement will continue on a month-to-month basis after the expiration of the original term until one of the parties gives notice of their intention to terminate the rental agreement (and, in the case of the tenant, to vacate the premises). If the landlord knew that you had vacated the premises, then he presumably should have stopped charging you. You should speak with an attorney directly about this. There are links to free or low-cost legal assistance on this website.
