admin Posted November 4, 2018 Share Posted November 4, 2018 Tenants should know their rights if their landlord is attempting to terminate their lease. Landlords must use a legal three-step eviction process. This requires a notice based off of failure to pay rent or failure to comply with the lease. The notice should not be based on damages caused by Hurricane Michael. After the notice has been filed, a motion is then filed with the court. Finally, the landlord files 24-hour rid of possession notice. Vicky J. Heath with the Bay County Sheriff's Office said, "If you have damage and you want them out just for the damage you're putting people out on the street with no homes. If it's possible and they can live in part of the home and the people that own the property can do the repair while they are there, that's one less family out on the streets and that's what we prefer to see." A legal clinic is being offered to both landlords and tenants on Wednesday from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. in the Sam's Club parking lot on 23rd Street in Panama City.
