I'm disabled living in a disabled apt complex my landlord gave me a 30 day eviction said I broke agreement I paid every month on time except this month I have something wrong with my SSI check I wrote my landlord letter explaining that and also told them I would be out at the beginning of next month I had nowhere to go they still haven't given me a paper with 30 days or stating that they were going to come in and take my apartment but I have not gotten any paper from the court stating I had to be out can they do this without a court order or taking me to court first
A lot of landlords will send that 30 day notice as soon as the rent is late. This is to limit their potential losses if the rent is not paid. If you can get the SSI straightened out, most landlords will cancel the notice to quit. Take the notice to the local Social Security Office. They can advance a payment in certain emergencies, and should be able to get a check for you promptly. Then talk to the landlord and offer to bring the rent up to date. If he still wants you out, he is an idiot, but he would likely be within his legal rights since there was a breach of the lease agreement. Don't force him to evict you, because with an eviction action you would also be liable for court costs and possibly attorney fees, in addition to the unpaid rent. Hopefully, once you are in a position to pay, the landlord will want you to stay.
