My landlord was in a battle with her late husbands kids for the house im renting. The kids were awarded the house the want us out tin 3 days how much time do i really have to move
Well, if you had a written lease with a term in it, then you don't have to move at all. However, you'll have to prove that in Court. When someone buys a home or is awarded it in a lawsuit they take it "subject to" preexisting liens, and a lease is considered a lien. So they have taken the house "subject to" your lease. Now, if they don't want to renew it, then they don't have to, but if you've got a couple months left on the lease, then you get to stay for that long. If it was a month-to-month lease, then you've got 1 month to leave. If it was an "at will" lease, then you really do only have 3 days until they file an eviction suit and take you to Court. I suggest you take the lease to a real estate attorney and get more specific advice on the issue. If you have a good written lease, then you should probably take it down to the Harris County Deed records and file it, and that will basically put everyone on notice that you are remaining on the property due to that lease and you will only leave with the term is up.
