It is very hard to get a Detainer Warrant Hearing now. And it appears you might have him close to being out. You may be able to assist in packing his things, but do not get in an argument. See if you can get him out prior to June 1. If not then file your Detainer for possession only.
You can file a Detainer Warrant to remove her with General Sessions Court. Do not get in a fight, or she will have leverage over you. It would be better to have a lawyer handle this, as the execution of a Writ of Possession may be necessary.
It stemmed from an incident where I requested reimbursement for my car being towed unbeknownst to me. I have been attempting to contact the required party but wasnt able to get anywhere. I called the office to speak with manager, I was told she's not in, I replied I know what car she drives I... Read more »
The owner has decided to fire the real estate company but wants to keep us as the tenant. We just signed a second year long lease 03/01/2020 through the real estate manager. The real estate company said we have to vacate the house at the end of 30 days (to include all of our belongings) so an... Read more »
I doubt that you have to move out or that the management company can force you. Also, in any event the Tennessee Supreme Court has extended an order restricting evictions for a period of time in light of the covid 19 issue.
Due to a recent heart & thyroid condition along with now The Covid 19 shutting me out of business I’m living off my savings account without an income coming in.

You should first re-read your lease and see if there is a termination clause and decide if you have an option to terminate early under the clause. You should also talk to your landlord about your situation and see if he will let you out of the lease. If not, then I suggest giving him at least 30...Read more »
The tenant in my property in Tennessee did not give the proper notice they did not give 30 days. They are requesting I keep the security deposit. I was in touch with the tenant we did a walk-through on April 2 and there was damage. I have receipts showing the cost of damage and it overrides their... Read more »
A security deposit is intended to cover unpaid rents and damage when a tenant vacates. If the security deposit does not cover the damange/unpaid rent, the recourse is to provide the tenant with proper notice that you'll be keeping the deposit, an accounting of the damages and cost of repairs,...Read more »
He stated that there were excessive damages to the property. There weren't. He did not list them or send me any invoices, charges or proof. Before I moved out, he sent me an email telling me I did NOT need to be there for the inspection. I guess I should have been, but I didn't think... Read more »
Yes. Your previous lease is no longer valid after the sale. You should be able to secure the deposit back from your previous lease so you could simply use that money to put down a new deposit. If you do not want to agree to sign the new lease, you could move somewhere else. Good luck.
You need a competent attorney to represent you, not a title bunch. Seller should have already run them out. If they claim ownership, then the deed will be champertous and void. At best you will have to immediately file and prosecute a Detainer Warrant. You take subject to the rights of those...Read more »
We were actually buying the house and making payments and she up and said you have to move next month your lease is up and we didnt see it coming. Yes, there was a lease, but we were actually buying, so we never really planned to move.
Apparently you were not buying anything unless you have a Deed. A Lease with Option To Purchase is only a Lease. However you still have possession, so the Owner will have to file and prosecute a Detainer Warrant to get you physically out of the premises.
The landlord or owner must file a Detainer Warrant in Sessions Court for possession only. It must be served or posted. She gets judgment for possession and they have 10 days to leave or appeal.. If still there, she must get a Writ of Possession issued and executed. I recommend she hire a...Read more »
paid even before she filed. Can she still go forward with eviction for possession? She is aware of our status and did not attend the creditors meeting. It was rent for the current month, paid albeit late, but also in the current month.
We have been renting month to month for 10 years with no lease. Two years ago I paid to get the roof re-shingled and got reimbursed by the landlord because she didn't have the money on hand. This year, a tree fell on the house and the landlord still didn't have insurance, even after... Read more »
Owner can sell the real property subject to your possessory rights. The grantee would then file the Detainer Warrant. You can sue for unjust enrichment, but it does not look good. Most competent lawyers would decline representing you.
I am a 57yr old female. I have to move out of my apartment that I have been in for over a year due to the fact that I lost my job over a month ago and have had no income to pain next months rent. I will start a new job on monday so I would only be two weeks late. Can I ask them to let me stay if I... Read more »
Have no idea what a dwell law is. But contact your landlord and promise the exact day you will pay rent. They may wait, especially if you wind up being a good tenant. If no agreement, then the landlord must file a Detainer Warrant, serve/post it, get a Judgment of Possession, then either you...Read more »
He left for a work trip at the start of the month and while he was gone, I finally decided to leave him. He comes back Saturday, but I don't want him in my house unless I'm here and I want my house key. He is on the lease, and he is planning to pack his stuff and leave, but wants to do it... Read more »
You would have to secure a court order preventing him from entering a premises for which he has a lease. I suggest you quickly consult with an experienced local family law attorney to get the best options for your particular case.
