I shared a rental with my ex, he filed for bankruptcy and the landlord gave a 5 day notice to quit the property. The property was vacated, now more than 3 months later the landlord is threatening me with an eviction (he filed one on my ex) is this legal?
Well, if the landlord was not aware that you moved out, he can file an eviction. However, if you state that he previously had you both served with a 5 day notice to quit the property and you guys moved out, it seems a bit strange that he is filing eviction notices 3 months later. I would not ignore the notice and would file an opposition stating that the premises was vacated as you guys agreed 3 months prior and thus do not understand his current filing. You may also want to contact Legal Aid of Southern Nevada (702-386-1070) for their advise on what to do. They assist people with landlord/tenant situations.
