My question involves an eviction in the state of: Louisiana
A few years ago I got laid off and have had to take a job for significantly less money and its been very hard for me to pay my rent on time. Every month from around November of 2009 until last month, June 2011, I have paid my rent extremely late and they have always let me. I have always paid to the penny every dime they wanted and have been appreciative of them letting me pay late. I always ask and make a payment arrangement to pay all my rent by a certain date and I have always paid what I said I would , when I said I would. This month the property manager will not accept the date I asked her for and has said she's going to evict me. This has become pretty routine for me every month and in her words "whenever you need to pay it late, just let me know when and as long as you pay your rent and the fees, it will be fine". I havent asked for some unrealistic date either, I am asking to pay on the same day of the month I've paid on repeatedly. I understand that they are well within their rights to evict me, but I wonder if I have any recourse seeing as how they have accepted my late rent for so long.
I know they will file the eviction, but I do not want to have to actually move. I have NO idea how evictions work since this has never happened to me before, but I want to know that if I have to go to court to fight this, will that fact be helpful?
