The amount of time a landlord has to sue for damages will vary by state and the type of California. In California, for example, you have 4 years to make a claim on a written contract, and 3 years to file for property damage. A claim for unpaid rent on a written rental agreement is 4 years. Property damage might be 3 years from the date you moved out. The laws of your state may be different.

How long does a landlord have to sue for unpaid rent in New York City after you have vacated the apartment?

Check the landlord/tenant laws for your state. If they are going to sue, they must notify you--often by certified letter. However, the issue may be moot if they were able to rent the place out right away. If it has been awhile, you can avoid wondering by giving them a call. By the way, leaving without having all of this resolved, along with a walk through after you moved, puts you into a bad situation if the house/apartment is found to be in poor condition. It is so much better in the long run to face up to (and pay) what you must.

Can you get evicted from an illegal apartment in nc?

Additional info I have been living in this apartment for 1 year in November and there is no lease. The "apartment" does not seem like an apartment from the outside, it looks like a tool shed. If a guest who has never seen it were to walk up to it, they would have no idea it is an apartment. The landlord built it himself, originally so his son could smoke pot there. Oh yea, landlord is a retired cop. Anyways, the apartment has no windows and no fire extinguisher and no smoke detectors. The kitchen and bathroom are all in one room. The only thing that separates the toilet from kitchen is a curtain. I recently lost my job and will not be able to pay rent until I find another job. I have never been late or behind on rent. Can the landlord evict me?


Can a Manager or Landlord Wrongful withhold part of a security deposit even if you never moved in?

If an apartment is reserved for you, because you paid a security deposit, that means that the landlord is not able to rent it to anyone else. Hence, when you then decide not to move in after all, the landlord has still lost the rent which he might have collected by renting that apartmnent to a different renter. So yes, he can withhold the deposit. It is not a good idea to make a deposit on an apartment that you are not actually going to move into.

Can you get an apartment if your emancipated in Texas?

Good question. A person must be 18 to sign a contract in Texas, but emancipation may change that situation. Any realtor should be able to find the answer for you. There are plenty in Texas. You would probably stand a better chance of getting an apartment from a private landlord than an apartment complex. Check with the realtor.
