Legal Answers
539 Questions Answered
Q. Due to Covid can my landlord give me 60 days to move out because she sold the house without telling us she was selling?
A: The answer is in your lease. If you still have a lease term then she cannot evict you for selling the house. If, however, you are on a month-month lease, then perhaps she can give you proper notice to vacate. The owner does not need your permission to sell the house; but any buyer of the property would purchase and assume the lease in most normal circumstances.
Q. Can my spouse in the state of Tennessee appear at the court date for divorce and dismiss it with out my concent
A: Typically, a Plaintiff may dismiss a case under Rule 41 without the other party's consent. If there is a pending counter-claim by the defendant, the counter-claim would not be dismissed. So under the limited facts provided, if your spouse filed for divorce and there was no counter-claim, the case could be dismissed without your consent.
Q. Can a landlord enter my home if I am not home
A: Yes. But only upon reasonable notice, which is usually outlined in the lease, or in an emergency circumstance.
