Have you encountered the term proper notification?
It is actually unjust for a landlord to expel a tenant out of his apartment if he does not have an evidence or a right to do so, in which case he will need a court order to be able to get a tenant out of his houses, if he does not have one, he cannot do any major action at all. Before the landlord can evict you, he will need to file a notice to the courthouse just like what people do when they try to file a lawsuit, and if the court agrees, they will have a third party give the notice or the court order to you, yourself. Sometimes these people do not deliver the notice to you personally, and they usually just hang it on your door or have it left somewhere. If they do so, the case may be thrown out because there was no proper delivery being made by the third party assigned to send the message. You will definitely need an attorney to help you out once you have known that a notice has not been carefully delivered to you or handed personally to you.
The revenge eviction
You have probably been complaining about a leak in the faucet lately but even after a week, the landlord still refuses to believe so and does not really do anything to have your faucet problem solved. And then it has been like two months ever since you started to complain about a certain damage in your apartment, but still the landlord chooses to disregard the complaint and does nothing about it. And then you are suddenly alarmed by a sheriff giving you an eviction notice- now this is called the revenge eviction. What must you do in order to deal with the situation?
