Can I get evicted for a noise complaint from the neighbors?

Asked over 2 years ago - Hays, KS

About a week ago I had a few people over and we got kind of loud. We went outside to smoke a cigarette and the neighbors yelled at us to shut up. We apologized and were then quiet. A few days later the landlord called me and said they had some complaints about partying that night, I denied the whole thing but I'm scared of getting evicted. Can I get evicted over one complaint?

    However, I'm going to guess that your landlord did not buy your denial and now will approach future incidents with you from a different point of view than if you had simply said "'yes, we were a little loud--won't happen again".
