But the buyout fee is several thousand dollars and they won’t accept multiple payments... if we could afford that, we wouldn’t be moving… Is there no such thing as a hardship action for Ohio?? Is there any kind of legal help because of the current pandemic with so many people losing their jobs?

The CDC now requires you to file an affidavit that you have attempted to...Read more »

my lease expired in Jan 2020 and the house is for sale. But according to the paperwork from the courts, it will go to sheriff's sale. Do I need to move? Can I be evicted? Should I still pay rent to the landlady?
If sold at sheriff's sale, you'll have to talk to the new owner about staying. But the owner can ask you to leave, and evict you if you don't, although some tenants might be protected from eviction because of the limits on evicting some tenants because of the virus.
