Received a notice to quit possession giving me 5 dys to move bc my landlord lost his house to the bank.

Asked over 1 year ago - Bridgeport, CT

Lived here two years. I got 2 little ones. I always pay my rent and out of nowhere I get this notice. I thought the bank needed to give me more time. I'm so worried about this. It's not fair to do everything right and be evicted. What about my deposit?

    Answered . A notice to quit does not mean you have to move right away. Do find a landlord/tenant attorney or call Statewide Legal Services of Connecticut to see if you qualify for a pro bono attorney. Answer the suit and make sure you do not miss any court dates.

    Answered . The bank likely advised the owner months ago but the owner only advised you now so they could continue paying rent. Consult a Landlord/Tenant attorney ASAP with a copy of the Lease to protect your rights.
