    Your landlord cannot legally put you out of your apartment in three days. An eviction notice must first be served properly and the tenant must have failed to comply, pay, or vacate within the specified timeframe. This must happen before the landlord can begin the eviction court process by serving you an “unlawful detainer” eviction lawsuit, called a Summons & Complaint. Emergency Rent Assistance -

Hello Crhystal, Sorry to say that I have no more idea about the eviction process. Some days before my uncle faced some problem in Las Vegas by landlords and by the help of Rocket Eviction, his problem was solved. From him I got some idea that Three-Day Notices can also be served if the tenant is subletting in violation of the lease. If the tenant fails to comply with the Three-Day Notice, the landlord can then serve a 5-Day Unlawful Detainer Notice, which demands the tenant to vacate within 5 days. Anyone have more idea plz share your view here and continue discussion. Hope you benefited by this.

Renting property is different from state to state, but a 3 day eviction notice is way below the minimum days allowed. My advice would be to look at your state's renting eviction policies to get full information about how to go about this.

SOURCE: What's the difference between EM HEAT and AUX HEAT?

Sorry, neither of these answers are completely correct.
You have a heat pump (or the wrong thermostat). Let's assume you have a heat pump.

In air conditioning mode, it works like every air conditioner you have ever had, but...

In heat mode, it reverses its operation. Have you ever felt the air coming out of the outdoor unit of your A/C unit? It's hot, isn't it. And the air coming out of the indoor unit (out of the registers) is cold. Now for a heat pump to produce heat it simply runs the air conditioner in reverse and the heat comes out in the house and the cold is released outside. Neat, huh!

Here's the problem with heat pumps...when it is really cold outside the heat pump can't produce enough heat to heat your home. So it has an additional heat source called "Auxiliary Heat". This heat comes on automatically when the house doesn't get warm enough. The source of this heat is based on the region of the country you are in. North/Northeast generally have oil heat, other regions have gas, and still others have to use electricity to heat. In Texas, we usually use electricity as the supplementary heat on heat pumps. VERY EXPENSIVE!

Now the "Emergency Heat"...this is exactly as stated in Solution #2. This is manually turned on by YOU at the thermostat when your heat pump fails. This turns on the auxilliary heaters and turns off the heat pump (remember, the reverse air conditioner). Again, this can be quite expensive to run if your heat source uses electricity! Gas and oil may be cheaper. The emergency heat is only designed (normally) to keep the house livable (not comfortable) until the Heating Tech can get out to you and fix your heat pump.

Something else you should know. It is normal for a heat pump's outdoor coil to frost up during heating mode. It will detect this and go into DEFROST mode and melt the frost off the coil. While it is doing this, it will turn on the auxilliary heater to keep the air blowing in the house at a reasonable "warm" temperature, but it will not be as hot as normal. In fact, heat pumps produce a lower temperature heat than traditional heaters. So the air may feel cooler during heating than you are use to anyway. This is normal and is not a sign of a problem.

So what do you do: Set your thermostat to the temperature you want and set the controls for HEAT/COOL and FAN-AUTO/ON and leave the EMERG HEAT off unless your heat pump breaks.

As always, keep your filters clean and your outdoor unit's coils clean and free of debris.

Hope this explains your question for you!

SOURCE: I live in a rented home and my heat is not coming

is air blowing through the registers but it is not hot?

Gas or electric?

IF gas it could just be a pilot light went out, older furnaces need to be manually re-lit. Newer ones should do it by themselves.

IF elec. could just be the circuit breaker flipped and needs to be reset.

But you live in a rental, that is why you pay them monthly payments. They are, by law responsible to provide a clean, working home. They have to provide, (1) recepticle of running water, (1) toilet and or shower/bath, and HEAT. Call them, and have a professional take care of it.

SOURCE: Hello, I have a carrier 58sta in the townhouse

the electrician might be able to help somewhat but an hvac tech is the person to call. It sounds like you have multiple issues if the thermostat is acting up that bad replace it!! but that wont stop the noise from the furnace thats either the blower wheel or the motor. ive seen filters get sucked in the blower wheels and destroy them then they make a buch of noise. if the filter hadn't been changed in a few years then the motor is probably going bad. you could check to make sure there is nothing in the blower wheel. make sure the power is off open the bottom compartment of the furnace use a flashlight and look around then stick your hand in there and feel around, if there were animals before sometimes a blanket of hair can develop on the blower wheel. make sure you dont touch the capacitor which looks like a little siver can near the blower motor it can shock you even with the power off. good luck

SOURCE: HI, we have Gas people

the gas people simply need to know where your gas appliance are. hot water heater, boiler, furnace, oven. A lot of gas equipment today, don't have pilots, they have electric igniters.

The don't want to turn on your gas and you have a leak, so they want to see that your gas appliances are working.

Good Luck,
Thanks for using FixYa.

since there was a recall for the coils contact the manufacturer and speak with them, as they should send/pay for a repairer to fix the problem. Hope this helped Tim

Can we get evicted because we are with holding September rent with notice as of why due to a leak that we have had for 2 months that has not been fixed after several request?

Depending on what state you are in you can hire somebody to come and fix the leak professionally pay them and deduct that from your rent but I would give a written notice to the landlord they have three days at least in the state of Idaho do you have all repairs completed

No hot water

Lady may be tight, but she demands her rent on time and you no doubt pay more than the rental is worth. Most State Laws require landlords to make repairs within a reasonable period of time after the renter request service. Tight or not; she is responsible for the rental and you have Renters Rights. If you can't get her to fix the problem, withhold the rent and see how fast she reacts. Tell when she fixes the problem (In writing) you will pay the rent. If she tries to mess with you, report her to the State Rental Authority.

Old Lease rules still apply right?

No, you're still "under" the old lease. There should be language about what happens after lease expires. Typically it's month to month, with 30 day notice on either side to vacate premises.

If they're looking to raise the rent, or ask you to pay additional expenses et al, then they need you to sign a new lease.

It sounds like they want you to pay a higher rent, but still reserve the right to kick you out as you're month-to-month.

You should check with a lawyer, but my inclination would be pay the old rent until they're willing to talk to you about a new lease.

My air went out on the 20th on this month. I called the landlord that Sunday to let him know that my air went out and he told me that he had someone to come and check it out Monday morning, I was at work...

Well, you are in a tough spot here. I am not sure what state you are in but AC is not required to be working only the heat needs to be, unless the ac is listed in your lease agreement. Unfortunately AC is considered a comfort. I would make sure that your rent is up to date to cover your end then contact the local Department of Building Inspection and tell them your situation. All you can do at this point is document conversations, dates and times and start writing letters to local housing authorities. Maybe letting him know that you are taking action to have the issue resolved may push him to make the repair. Again make sure you are up to date on your rent. I would also start to look elsewhere to live so you don't have to deal with this guy anymore.

Good Luck to ya
