my landlord just served my roommate with an unlawful detainer (my landlord said its strictly my roommate and the paperwork only has her name on it) I got a copy too but my landlord said its just a formality and that he is letting me stay.
either way what is the next move. I know she is supposed to file a response in the next 5 days. what happens if she does and what happens if she doesn't? my landlord and I have a lease that started October 1. my roommate isn't on my lease and I'm not on the unlawful detainer. but what happens now with her unlawful detainer!
She needs to answer and proceed or make a deal with the landlord to move out which is the easier course of action.
