Behind on rent. How long does landlord have to give me if evicted?

Answered on Jan 3, 2014

Much of this would be dependent on the lease and the facts. However as a general matter, the landlord must give you a Notice to Quit which is up to 10 days depending on the facts. If you do not leave the landlord must sue for possession and a hearing is usually scheduled in about 1 week. If the landlord is granted possession you are served with an order of possession. If you still do not leave, a constable can remove you. It is always best at this level to negotiate a resolution, the landlords are trying to make or avoid losing as much money as possible and if the tenant has a goal, often times you can reach something that works for both parties.
