Asked in Landlord - Tenant for Tennessee

Q: I just received a "notice of termination" it says I have to be moved out by 8/15/2022. I just got the letter today 8/12.

We had a deal with the old landlord for $400 a month rent, paid yearly with tax return. We have lived here for over 10 years. The land was sold 2 weeks ago and I have had trouble with the new owner every day. He gave me 12 hrs notice that his people were going to throw away anything they wanted on my plot of land I rent. I told him according to t.c.a. 66-28-100's, he had to give me 48 hours notice. He has since not mowed my grass, he has mowed everyone else's. He demanded I give him my email and full name because he was my landlord, I gave it to him not knowing I should have not given my email. He has refused to give me access to the new online payment option I text him about. He gave me 2 options and said to text him which one, so I did that. I got no response at all. I owed the previous landlord from Nov 2021 to July 2022. This letter says I owe him and he added August to it. He says I owe him $3600 for Nov 21 to Aug 22. Plus $450 fee. The letter says I have till the 15th to move

A: You might stay until you are served with a Detainer Warrant, then play out the process until a

Writ of Possession is imminent. Any information you give the owner will be used to collect a Judgment from you. Apparently you owe rent so you might look for another place to live.
