My landlord told me i had until saturday the 21st ( today ) to vacate home . My Fiance is 5 months pregnant , i work 12-14 hrs a day , and almost impossible to make this happen .... Is this legal ?
Failure to pay rent is a valid reason for terminating a lease and evicting the tenant in North Dakota. The North Dakota eviction process starts with a three-day eviction Notice. If the tenant does not vacate then the landlord can start an action in District Court to obtain a judgment of eviction. The eviction judgment can be enforced by the sheriff's office to remove the tenant from the property. If your landlord intends to move forward with the eviction the next step is to serve you with a copy of the Eviction Complaint and an Eviction Summons which contains a date and time for a hearing in the District Court.
My suggestion would be to contact your landlord and try to reach an agreement on the payment of the rent that allows you to stay in your apartment.
