It sounds like you might have signed an agreement to vacate. Did you? I suggest you hire a landlord-tenant attorney if you really want to stay and can afford an attorney. Good luck.
My comments are general in nature, are not legal advice as to your specific issue, and do not establish an attorney-client relationship. Disregard this solicitation if you have already engaged a lawyer in connection with the legal matter referred to in this solicitation. You may wish to consult your lawyer or another lawyer instead of me. The exact nature of your legal situation will depend on many facts not known to me at this time. You should understand that the advice and information in this solicitation is general and that your own situation may vary. This statement is required by rule of the Supreme Court of Missouri.
I encourage you to call the Missouri Bar Lawyer Referral Service in Jefferson City and they will find you an attorney in your area.
NOTE: The use of the Internet for communications with the firm or this attorney will not establish an attorney-client relationship and messages containing confidential or time-sensitive information should not be sent.
