Question & AnswerIf my landlord gives me an eviction notice, do I have to move?
4. Talk to your landlord about the notice
Sometimes a tenant gets an because of a misunderstanding about a problem or because the landlord has made a mistake in processing a rent payment.
For example, maybe you don’t really owe rent. You might be able to convince your landlord that they have made a mistake. You will probably need to have receipts to prove all your payments.
It’s a good idea to talk to your landlord about the reason they gave you the notice to see if you can solve the problem.
For example, if you owe rent but can’t pay it off before the deadline in the notice, you can ask your landlord to agree to a payment plan. If you do make a payment plan with your landlord, make sure you get it in writing to avoid future problems.
