Eviction

questions & answers

Question: I have a verbal agreement with my father in law to live in his house as long as make all mortgage payments and such. For 4 years I have been on time. I have custody of 2 of my nefews along with my son, who has an autism spectrum disorder. Four days ago constables showed up at my house to evict. This was the first that I had of any proceedings. I was not given a chance to defend myself or anything. I'm quite shook up and today I saw people removing my possessions. What options are available to me?

Answer: It might be wise to contact an attorney right away. If and when a residential rental agreement exists, the landlord is required to provide the tenant with advance written notice of the landlord’s intention to terminate the rental agreement.
