Neville Bedford's answer
Yes, depending on the reasons for the eviction and your compliance with necessary first steps, for example, the issuance of a 5 day demand letter for non payment of rent. you may be able to complete the court process in that time. To ensure you do this in compliance with the laws, you should retain an attorney to assist you. Otherwise, mistakes and omissions may cost you more time and money and possibly expose you to liability for violations of the law.

Andrew "Andy" Potter's answer
Depends on what your lease agreement says. The lease agreement controls as it is a contract between you and the landlord and if the agreement says that 30 days is sufficient, then 30 days is sufficient. Read your lease agreement closely to find out your rights when the term is complete or you wish to terminate it.

Julie A. Rice's answer
When you move out, the landlord must provide you a letter within 30 days stating why they are withholding your damage deposit and if they are also going to hold you responsible for more damages. If you have not received anything in writing within 30 days, then you can file an action in the magistrate court asking for your damage deposit to be returned. Be cautious, however, b/c if you did do damage to the landlord's property and you can not swear under oath that you did not, that if the...

Julie A. Rice's answer
I would call the police and have them haul away the property as abandoned. If that property was stolen, for example, and you try to sell it, then you could be charged with theft by receiving, theft by taking, etc. It's not worth it. Be thankful that the troubled tenant is gone, and get the renter's belongings off your property by the police/sheriff so you are not held responsible. You may need to file a formal eviction if one was not in place for the police to remove the property. I just...

Julie A. Rice's answer
It all depends what is in your lease agreement. If your lease agreement does not call for a five (5) day time frame in which you can pay rent with late fees and no eviction proceeding with follow, then you are most likely correct. If, however, your lease agreement is silent on the issue and your rent is due on the 1st and you have not paid, then you can be evicted. If you do not have a lease, then you can be evicted with proper notice. Unless your landlord has agreed in writing to accept...
