I have an eviction notice. What do I do?

On the 7th my landlord left a notice to quit on my door. The notice said to pay or move out by 8/13. My room mate moved out and did not pay her half of the rent. I can't pay it. I paid my half. We have 1 more month left on our lease.

My landlord will probably go forward with the eviction. Does anyone know what is going to happen? If I move out will I still owe for the rest of the lease?

If I stay and ask for a court date is that any worse than just leaving? I feel like if I am going to be responsible for paying the rest of the  lease I may as well stay as long as I can. Either way I will still owe the same money, right?

Get a lawyer first off.  Secondly if you are evicted, you won't owe the rest of the money because you won't live there.  But I would talk to the landlord first because you do owe money to them... Try to talk to them and make a deal before taking it to court.

Is your roommate on the lease?
Does your landlord know your roommate moved out?

If you PAY it will be best. They will just show up with a sherrif and make you leave if you dont pay in full. If the eviction is started in the court process, you will be liable for all of their legal fees and court costs.

Depending on your state, yes you will owe for the remainder, just like the roommate.

Communication is key. There have been times money is tight and we always call our landlord in advance and he works with us.
