My question involves an eviction in the state of: NJ
I had not paid my rent for the month of March and April but did not receive any written notice from my roommate who i had subleased a room from (my roommate has rented this apartment from the management company), nor did I receive any notice/summons from the court to appear I guess my roommate must have taken out of the mail box so that i could not find out. Hence I missed the court date and he got the judgment by default.
Today I have just received a notice hanging on my door by the sheriff that I have to move my stuff out in 3 days or he will come and escort me out. I know i am late but I have the money now for the month of March and April but my roommate is not accepting it ....he wants me out. Here are my questions:
1) Can my roommate who is also a tenant evict me shouldn't it be the management company filing this case?
2) Can I go to court with the money to stop this and avoid being thrown out...is this possible at all in New Jersey?
Please help I don't think I have much time. I would really appreciate a fast response. Thanks...
