ktt, Other/Just Looking in San Antonio, TX

i have a friend on housing whom was given a violation while away for medical reasons. they were later given eviction notice.

Asked by ktt, San Antonio, TX Fri Jan 4, 2013

they never had any violations in their 5 years at this residence. i myself not on housing dont get the unprofessional ism. this seems to me the management and manager which is all the same is violating tenant rights regardless of their status. i would expect this in a third world country but not even in texas.

The biggest mistake was to NOT let the management company know what was going on. Your friend should have let someone he/she knew to go inform the manager. A doctor's note may be enough to prove the point to management.
Communication is key!

Being a landlord is a business transaction and ususally backed up by a contract aggrement. The tenant knows what is expected of him and is bound by that contract to comply. Extenuating circumstances are sometimes worked through - but not always accepted. This business is between the two parties and should be negotiated between them or their attorneys.
If rents are not paid for ANY reason, the burden fall on the tenant.

Perhaps the "un-professionalism" would extend to that person not communicating their situation to the Landlord:
The Landlord has problems too!

Depends on what the violation is and the circumstances surrounding the eviction notice. In many cases there is a remedy other than eviction.

You would want to check the terms of their lease or yours if you are concerned for your own well being.
Normally if a tenant doesn't pay, even for medical or some other valid reason, they can't stay and could get evicted.
It really has nothing to do with the landlord, but with the tenant....in most cases the tenant has agreed to pay and has signed an agreement that if they don't pay....for any reason, they could be asked to move out or evicted.
The landlord or manager in turn typically has an obligation to a lender to pay their mortgage. If they don't pay, they could get the building foreclosed on.
There's usually a lot more to the story than individuals disclose, but then again it could be as simple as....they didn't pay so they can't stay.

the tenants were away having a baby when a visitor came in thru the out gate to get on the property and did not know the manager when confronted. was visiting some other resident friend. residents do the same if their codes are not working.
