Don’t Panic

Don’t Panic

 

Your monthly rent is likely the biggest bill you face each month. Particularly if you live in a city with a high cost of living, rent can eat up over 30 percent of your income. Between student loans, car payments, and groceries, it’s easy to fall behind on your rent.


If you’ve missed payments and your landlord has initiated the eviction process, you’re not alone: A 2018 report from Redfin found that approximately 2.7 million renters in the United States faced eviction in 2017.


You can recover from eviction and, in some cases, even fix the situation and get back in good standing with your landlord. Here’s how.


What happens when you get evicted


Coming home to an eviction notice on your door can be a heartbreaking and terrifying experience. But before you panic about not having a roof over your head, know that the legal eviction process can take weeks. Receiving a notice does not mean you will be homeless overnight.


Receiving an eviction notice


It doesn’t matter if you owe $1,000 or $10 to your landlord. If you owe any money at all after the due date, you can be evicted. In general, if you fall behind on your rent, your landlord will give you a notice to pay your balance or vacate the premises within a set period. The length of the notice can vary from state to state, but it can be as short as three days.


“Depending on your state’s laws, if you receive an eviction notice, you might have to immediately act within the prescribed time frame to contest the eviction in court.


“It’s possible that your landlord may have to issue a subsequent notice before taking further action, however.”

That notice doesn’t mean you have to be out of the apartment within that period; it just means you have a couple of days to pay your balance in full. If you fail to do so, your landlord can pursue a court order to evict you. They cannot force you out of your home until they get a court order.

Going to court

You can’t stop your landlord from getting a court order unless you pay the rent in full. To dispute your landlord’s actions, you have to wait to receive the court order. Then, you can choose to fight the eviction in court.


 Depending on your state, the following defenses could help you stay in your home:

  • You paid your rent in full, but your landlord says you didn’t.
  • You offered to pay rent, but your landlord wouldn’t accept payment.
  • You gave your landlord a partial payment.
  • The rental unit had an issue with essential services, such as a lack of heat or running water, and the landlord didn’t fix it.

If you contest the eviction and lose, you could have just days left to move. If you’re still in the home after that time, the landlord can escalate the situation to the local police. Depending on where you live, you could be forced out right away or given 48 hours or more to move.

Keeping a roof over your head

Having shelter for you and your family is a basic necessity. If you’ve fallen behind on your rent payments and are facing eviction, there are ways to repair the situation. By taking quick action and asking for help.
