I'm Being Evicted because My Landlord Wants to Recover Possession of My Home (Non-Subsidized Housing)
This toolkit tells you what you need to know if you may be evicted because your landlord wants to take back possession of your home. This means your landlord wants to stop renting to you. Your landlord may do this because you broke your lease, or to end a month-to-month agreement, or if you have stayed too long after your lease ended. Use a different toolkit if you live in subsidized housing or in a mobile home park.
I Think I’ve Been Illegally Evicted
It is illegal for your landlord to evict you without first going to court and getting an eviction order. It is illegal for your landlord to just change the locks, or cut off your utilities, or remove your property from your home, unless a court has ordered you to move. Without an eviction order, your landlord can’t do anything that prevents you from having access to your home.
Eviction from Subsidized Housing
This toolkit tells you what you need to know if you live in subsidized housing, and think you may be evicted and you live in subsidized housing. It can also help if you have gotten a notice that your housing voucher may be terminated. Housing is subsidized when an agency (such as HUD or MSHDA) pays some or all of your rent.
