You won't recover rent that you already paid to her.
You do need to mail her a notice that you have moved, have no intention of coming back, mail the keys too in a bubble wrap package that has tracking, and provide her with your new mailing address so she can forward the notice regarding what claim she is making on the security deposit or in the alternative, return the security deposit.
I have been served by the court that my landlord wants to evict me. I want to know if my landlord can still pursue an "eviction" if I have moved out before my hearing and before filing a response with the courts.
Yes, you can move out. You would make an appointment with the landlord to turn over keys.
You would also have to file a paper with the Court that says you have turned over keys and possession to the Owner. And then provide a copy to the Landlord of the paper that you filed with the Court.
The case would still continue until the Landlord or the Court closed the case.
You would still appear in the records as having been a Defendant in an eviction case.
There is no converting it to another kind of case.

If the Tenant is not paying rent, deliver the Pay or Quit Notice as soon as possible.
See an attorney for help in doing this.
Hire the attorney to handle the lawsuit for you and make sure that you tell them you'd like
to have the tenant personally served.
That's the only way to continue and try for a money damages judgment.
Ask your CPA or tax preparer if you can benefit from a money damages judgment that you never collect on.
Weigh that against how much the attorney tells you it will cost to do the money damages claim.

Preg. mother of 1, custody of 2 other children. No complaints against me. However, When I call and talk to Landlord @ A/C unit not working properly, I was told I was going to be served a 3 day evict.?
Your rights in a Pay or Quit Notice aka three day notice are to pay all of the rent that is due or turn in keys and surrender the premises by the end of the day listed.
After you pay all of the rent that is due, then you may mail a letter to the landlord demanding that he take care of the maintenance issues within seven days of receipt of the letter.
It must be in the proper wording, so you may go see an attorney to help with that.
On a month to month lease, a tenant is considering leaving prior to the last months rent (paid at beginning of the rental term), being used up and wants the refund mailed. What is the law regarding when a rent refund is payable? Is the landlord en...
As a landlord, you would probably refund that last month's deposit only if you are letting the tenant out of the lease without penalties.
In the alternative, (if things go as planned) you apply the money as a credit once the last moth's rent comes due.
So, if the tenant is ending the lease early, there would probably be penalties.
Depending on the language of the documents you signed, you might end up applying the money to the tenant ledger or you might refund it.
Each scenario is different. Read the documents and make an appointment with an attorney if you are stuck. Good luck!
I have been living in my home for a year and a half now. My rent is paid up in full until Nov. 3, 2016. I rent on a month to month basis. Can a land lord hand you a three day eviction notice without your full name on it and not signed by a judge a...
It sounds like you received a pre-suit notice.
A pre-suit notice can be issued by the landlord.
It does not have to be witnessed or issued by a Court.
The signature does not have to be notarized.
Having children or animals really doesn't affect the lawsuit in any way.
Being pregnant is not a defense in any way.
If you are paid up, the landlord cannot issue a Pay or Vacate Notice.
If you are behind even one dollar, the landlord can issue the Pay or Vacate Notice.
You must pay the rent or vacate the premises within those three days or you no longer have any right to remain on the property and the tenancy is over.
The landlord can make conditions about animals that you will have to follow or risk having landlord end the tenancy.
Even if the landlord doesn't end the tenancy correctly, at some point landlord will send the proper paperwork and you will have to leave. Best to work out something with him/her now.
My husband has a medical disability. Is it legal for my landlord to evict us?
Yes, it is legal. A landlord may evict a tenant without regard to the health or physical condition of the tenant.See question
I am currently living with my Mother, as I have lost my job My brother owns the house and he wants to kick me out. Can he do this?
Yes, your brother the owner of the house can ask you to leave.
If you are a tenant, he has to give you proper notice of termination.
Once the time has run on the notice, you have no legal right to be there.
If you are a house guest, he has to tell you that permission is revoked, which it sounds like he did.
After he tells you, you immediately have no right to be there.
Once you have no right to be there, he can begin the legal process to have you removed.See question
My mother passed. We moved contents and cleaned. Her unit was rented in 7 days. We're charged for the 7 days Plus entire 1 month deposit. (30 day notice required to move) were told since proper 30 day notice wasn't given, we forfeited her deposit.
It may be legitimate.
You would have to take your written lease to an attorney for review to be sure.
There are four different scenarios that may apply.
If one of the scenarios, it would be legitimate; if one of the other three, then, no, not legitimate.
