A: You didn't ask a specific question, but it sounds like you need to hire an attorney. In order for your landlord to force you out tomorrow legally, there would need to have been a lawsuit filed, a judgment entered, and action by the sheriff. My guess is that what you received is merely a communication that your landlord wants you to vacate. It sound's like she has already engaged in unlawful "self help" by trying to remove your possessions. Hire an attorney.
