A: "Cash for keys" is a common offer to persuade a resident to vacate earlier than scheduled. In your case if there is a court ordered eviction date, you must follow the court order. Have you been to court for the eviction hearing? Is there an eviction order signed by the judge?

A: Get in touch with the entity that is offering you $$ for the key. Make sure that it is not a scam and that they are authorized to act on behalf of you lender. The fact that there is a 10 day period from date of the writ being issued is important - so make sure you confirm with lender's attorney if the 'cash for keys" letter came from an authorized party.
