I am in Fayetteville North Carolina. I moved in December 27 and on January 1 around 11 PM she texted me telling me that she was going to ask me to leave and was giving a 7 day notice. We have no lease between us or anything. I had a roommate agreement with the other roommates that I did violate bringing people over more than I should. I told people I was going to attack her and get my cousin to jump her. I didnt tell her but the other roommates and she found out.
January 1 was the day that I paid her even though I moved in December 27. And she gave me a prorated right back since I stayed for three days. And it made me mad she sent me that text so I immediately left the house And took all my stuff. But I’m still angry about it now and was wondering if I had any case. And took all my stuff. But I’m still angry about it now and was wondering if I had any case. She didn’t file evection or anything just sent the text and I left. Is it illegal that she didn’t give me my full money back?
Since you voluntarily left, she doesn't have to file an evictionagainst you, and you can't bring claims against her for failing to file an eviction. If you had a verbal agreement for a month to month lease that included conditions (no more than x guests) and you violated that condition, she had the right to give you 7 days notice to leave. If she rents it out again before the end of the month and the new tenant moves in and pays rent before the end of the month you could make a claim agsinst her to get some prorated rent, but it's probably not worth it. This will be a "he said she said" situation since everything was verbal.
