No rental agreement whatsoever? We were tricked into a fake real estate transaction. We lived at the property made all monthly payments. They promise to put us on title. They are backing out.
Um - the deal was that you pay their mortgage and you can stay there? and now they're kicking you out even though you lives up yo the deal ? I would say that is an oral contract to rent the place to you and the fact that payments were made to third party beneficiary (bank) not landlord doesn't change that. so ... you could be evicted in a 30 day notice but not a three day, IMO - if I have the facts rightSee question

you don't say that you don't know what the problem is, only that she wouldn't tell you what the complaints were. so if you know, you should stop if you can. since you are disabled, it may be that evicting you over your disability could be a discrimination or it could be some sort if violation if the Ada -- just throwing out some thoughts here -- no facts to support any of this. legal analysis is fact driven as alwaysSee question

so you bring small claims for deposit or counterclaim if they sue you
probably no rent was owing if it was always uninhabitableSee question
Defendant failed to "answer only within 5 days" as requested by judge after demurrer was overruled. Do I file a standard judgment for default (UD-110) or is there another form I need to file?
there are several forms you need but first since there was an appearance it's possible the clerk may not take a default and you may have to go in for ex parte order for default. then you need request for default and default judgment form, judgment, dismiss the does if any, and the writ.See question
