    Answered . It's where they offer you money to leave without them having to do an eviction. You may wish to consider it if it will get you into a rental you can afford.

    Good luck with your situation.

    Answered . technically you can stay until you are evicted, and a sherriff throws you out. A cash for keys deal is an informal settlement in lieu of eviction to get you out quick and save them the hassle and cost of eviction proceedings.
