Q: Lease was up. Never went in to sign a new lease. Behind on rent due. Got Eviction notice

Called and talked to her have done a promise to pay before said she don't do that when I have done it before. Told her I was waiting on taxs due to losing job thought they would have came in by the day I said but the did not. Can i still get evicted if I never signed a new lease? And would she have to leave another notice about starting Eviction process since dates are wrong?

A: Yes, a landlord can evict a tenant even after the lease has expired. Without more information, it's hard to answer the second question about the date being wrong.
