The Judgment is for possession. The Plaintiff will get a Writ of Possession executed by the Sheriff if the Defendant remains in possession. A good appeal will involve the posting of a Bond against the owner's further loss.
The answer is in your lease. If you still have a lease term then she cannot evict you for selling the house. If, however, you are on a month-month lease, then perhaps she can give you proper notice to vacate. The owner does not need your permission to sell the house; but any buyer of the property...Read more »
That is a month to month tenancy. Landlord files a Detainer Warrant against the occupant normally about a month prior to Court. It must be served or posted. If possession is retained after Judgment, the landlord/owner must get a Writ of Possession issued and executed by the Sheriff removing the...Read more »
What happened? Assuming no criminal charges, you may wish to make the landlord go through the entire process for eviction. A Detainer Warrant must be filed, served or posted, a Judgment for Possession rendered, and if you are not out or appeal within 10 days, a Writ of Possession is issued and...Read more »
It appears they found your Husband through you. Your Husband should have been served with whatever suit was filed, and should have defended himself. Now he must immediately file to set aside what may be a Default Judgment, or file an Appeal, hopefully an Appeal De Novo. He must act fast and...Read more »
My boyfriend's car has expired tags and they just a notice on it today that it will be towed. I searched through the lease agreement and I cannot find any information regarding a vehicle with expired tags. It only states they can tow if the vehicle is parked illegally like if it's in a...

Thank you for your question. Absent more information, I cannot give a definitive answer. However, many apartment leases include a "disabled vehicle" clause.

I moved out of an apartment on July 31, 2020. The leasing office mailed me an “estimated list” of charges on September 14, 2020 in which the letter also indicated that I would receive a final charge list shortly after. After not receiving any follow up communication I began reaching out towards... Read more »
You were served prior to Court, so what is the problem? A continuance is possible, but it appears you have no defense to an Unlawful Detainer Warrant. I suggest you start looking for somewhere else to live, and not pay April's rent.
I recommend you go to Court to make sure no more rent or costs are given to the Plaintiff than should be due. It can probably be one of the first cases called if you talk to the Plaintiff landlord and agree to a Judgment, maybe getting a security deposit back.
Can they do that ? If you never was given a notice about the new owners never signed any lease agreement with the new owners , and the only reason I stopped paying my recent landlord is because no one was coming to fix maintenance issues in my apartment, the constant bugs and mold and water coming...

Yes, I would go talk to the management company in person. If the facts are as you describe, they should be able to fix the error in their system. You could also write letters/emails to the management company describing the issue and asking them to rectify. If you are still unable to resolve this,...Read more »
