Eviction

questions & answers

Question: After living at our current Apartment for well over a year I was offered employment by the Property Manager. I accepted the FT employment began working for the same company that I rent from. As an employee I received a discounted rent then what is stated on my current and active lease. After stating concerns regarding Fair Housing laws not being followed to the Property Manager I was terminated on a false accusation of theft. In my Letter of Termination it states I have less then 7 days to vacate the property as it is a benefit of employment. I lived here before I worked here can she do this?

Answer: If a rental agreement states that upon termination of employment a now-former employee must vacate the dwelling within a specific period of time, then, ordinarily, that provision will be enforceable. However, if you believe that your landlord is acting unlawfully, you may wish to seek legal advice from an attorney.
