True or false? (eviction question)

Is it true that if you get fired from your job that your landlord can't legally evict you for 3 months? I call b/s, I lived in several apts and though I've never been evicted, I've been late on rent a time or 2 and had to pay huge fees.

I ask because my parents entered into a contract w/ a friend/coworker of my mom's, their renting out their condo to her. Things were great up til a few mos ago when the bank kept "losing" the checks, and then she got fired from her job for having vodka in a water bottle and in another bottle at her desk.

I feel so awful, basically my parents have to pay her rent for 3 months? wtf, how the hell is that fair in any way, shape or form? I seriously don't think any landlord I've ever had would've let me stay in my apt for 3 months til I got a job! But I could be wrong, anyone know?

  • Nope - but it may be difficult to get them out - if they refuse...may have to get a court order...my inlaws are landlords and get this crap pulled on them all the time - deadbeat renters...
