My question involves an eviction in the state of: Indiana
I originally had a 6-month lease at an apartment complex in Indiana. My lease expired over 6-months ago and I have not been asked to renew it. I pay my rent on time every month still no issues. I have been searching for a cheaper apartment recently and in the process of filling out an application at a different complex they contacted my current landlord to confirm tenancy, which they did and gave me a great review. However, being in the loop since my best friend is maintenance here, he told me that this caught the landlord off guard and that my landlord spoke of evicting me since I have no current lease so he could rent to a new tenant with a lease. How long of a notice must my landlord give me before I have to vacate the premise? This new apartment seems to be a go, but I'm just waiting on paperwork to go through to confirm everything. I am concerned because he is scheduled for visit in the next couple of days (as he lives on the east coast) and I have a feeling that he may try to evict me when he is here. I would also like to know if there is a length of notice I must give him before I vacate the premise? In the case that he doesn't issue an eviction.
My rent is due on the first of each month and considered late if not paid on/or by the fifth of the month. I always pay on the third, when I receive my monthly disability payment. As you can imagine I am on a tight budget and am concerned about the move. I know I will not be able to occupy my new apartment until the rent and security deposit is paid in full and since I cannot pay until the third this poses an issue of timing my move. This being said, if I were not able to vacate my current dwelling until the third or fourth of the month would I be responsible for paying rent for that particular month in which I am there for a few days only? Or, of greater concern would my landlord have just cause to retain my security deposit since it is equal to one months rent?
Thank you in advance,
