What Do I Do If I Receive A Notice of Eviction?

A Sacramento bankruptcy attorney asks...What Do You Do If You Receive A Notice of Eviction?

If you receive a notice of eviction its best to leave the property. An even better step is to leave the premises before getting a notice of eviction. That will keep an eviction off of your credit report and not present a red flag to any future landlord.

In contrast, if you’ve overextended your stay and the landlord has won an eviction proceeding against you and has a judgment for possession then the filing of a bankruptcy will halt eviction only if the tenant pays one month of rent to the bankruptcy clerk and files a certification that states that the state court judgment permits the tenant to stay in the premises upon satisfaction of the entire judgment amount and has made a deposit of one month’s rent with the bankruptcy clerk. This allows the tenant have the advantage of the automatic stay injunction and stay in the premises for 30 days. To stay longer than 30 days the tenant must satisfy the amount stated in the judgment for possession to the Clerk of the Bankruptcy Court within the 30 day period that he’s in the premises.

The rules allowing a person facing eviction do not provide much relief. If the tenant could come up with the one month’s rent and the amount satisfying judgment he or she would have just avoided the eviction mess altogether and found another place to stay.
