If you signed the Note then any Foreclosure of the Deed of Trust may be succeeded by a suit on the Note Deficiency against you. Try to get Ex to refinance and pay off the Note you signed.
BROKE Aagreement he said I wasn't consistent he brought the eviction said I had 10 days to move

If a court has granted the landlord an order of possession, then you have 10 days to vacate or the sheriff can come and remove you.

What is your question? You will probably be served with a Detainer Warrant, then have ten days to move after judgment for possession.

Spring I started noticing black mold in my ceiling, shower stall and underneath my wall unit. Also notice when it would rain. That my ceiling fan would leak water through it. And I have to put a bucket down to catch the water from the ceiling we're it leaks. I brought this to my landlords... Read more »

A Tennessee attorney could advise best, but your question remains open for two weeks. I'm sorry for your ordeal with the mold and health problems. I could only speak for the injury-related issues. A landlord tenant attorney should advise on issues related to the lease and habitability. You may... Read more »

No, but what counts is whether a Detainer Warrant has been filed or not.

Depends on what your lease says and whether you are accepting payments with or without reservation. But you can't evict someone without filing a detainer summons and getting an order of possession.

Give him whatever notice the former tenant was supposed to get in the lease. Otherwise file the Detainer Warrant in Sessions now, as service/posting is notice to quit by Statute. Hopefully you know his name. File Detainer For Possession Only now as it will take time to get him out.

There is no "halt" in civil procedure. Hire a competent attorney if you do not understand what a Detainer Warrant is. You will probably need to vacate 10 days after possession is adjudged to the owner.

If he is a tenant in common of the property, then he has a right to be there. But if not, then file a Detainer Warrant on him for possession. Let the Sheriff serve/post him. Do not get in a fight or he will have leverage on you.
I am wanting to purchase a home in Nashville, TN that is currently occupied by tenants. Do I have to let them stay until their lease is up? Or can I evict them if I intend to move into the property?
answered on Jan 16, 2023
A buyer of an occupied property typically purchases subject to the lease. Which means you need to honor the lease terms. However, in some leases, there is a termination on sale clause, which also means the lease terminates when the property is sold. Other times, certain conditions can be negotiated... Read more »
My tenant signed a lease until January 14, 2023, but she moved out on December 31, 2022. She paid first and last month's rent, plus a security deposit when she moved in. Is she entitled to any money back since she didn't live there in January?
answered on Jan 9, 2023
You are entitled to rent through the term of the lease, unless the lease states otherwise. Leaving early is typically considered abandonment.

If he somehow gets back into the house, you will have to file a Detainer Warrant in Sessions Court. Changing the locks might help now.

Hire an experienced collection attorney to either pursue it or forget about it. Apparently you do not know anything about the judgment debtor's financial situation, which you need to even to consider the collection process.
Sent a letter stating I need to vacate the property my 12-1-22 because I am within this month late on rent. Due 11-1 and have a 5 days Grace period. Is this legal without a 14 day notice to cure?
answered on Nov 16, 2022
Look at your lease. Often there are provisions in the lease that you have waived notice for non-payment of rent. If you didn't pay in the grace period, then the notice may well be proper.
answered on Oct 31, 2022
File the Detainer Warrant for possession only now. You probably should hire an attorney to file this.
answered on Oct 18, 2022
A good lawyer can figure out how to get possession from an unwanted tenant. It sounds like you are being given lots of time to find a new rental.
Based on the reply I received, I need to add more details. There is no clause in the 2-year lease that says the lease is voided if the property is sold. The new owners are buying the house as an investment with full understanding and agreement as part of the purchase that there is a current tenant... Read more »

Maybe. You should check the terms of your lease. Sometimes there is a termination on sale clause. If not, the new owner would buy the property subject to the lease.
