Toledo, OH asked in Landlord - Tenant for Ohio

Q: I’m supposed to move out 27th but can’t move into next apartment until 28th. Can landlord do anything?

My apartment complex requires 60 day notice, which I gave. I was one day late giving, so I paid technically until, the 28th, even though I’m supposed to move out by midnight on 27th. I had hard time finding new apartment since not many had openings with the COVID stuff. I finally found one, but it won’t be ready for move-in until 28th. I explained to my complex the situation and offered to pay for extra day and said I’d move first thing and be out by afternoon of 28th, but they said no. Is there really anything they could do to get me out before then if I just didn’t go until the 28th?

A: They could give you a notice to vacate to start the eviction process, but that would take weeks. If they try to move you out on the 28th, call the police.
