Your landlord cannot kick you out for violating the terms of your lease, without PROVING the violation in court.
Even if that happens, the landlord cannot keep your rent without court approval.
You should talk to an attorney; you may not need to leave.
I am NOT your lawyer. Do not rely on this advice or any other advice on Avvo to make your legal decisions. No attorney-client relationship is created by answering this question. Do not share confidential information with me unless and until I have agreed to represent you, in writing, for a specific matter.
You can't get first month's rent back and getting last month's rent depends on applicable circumstances. Did you have a written lease that prohibits smoking of any substance in the apartment? If yes, you may have violated the lease by smoking pot.
Our Rating is calculated using information the lawyer has included on their profile in addition to the information we collect from state bar associations and other organizations that license legal professionals.
