Asked by user in Mississippi.
I have worked for my employer for almost a year now. I was living in my vehicle when I started working for him. He bought a camper and put it on his land and started renting it to me. Now he has fired me and threatened to physically harm me if I don't move out immediately! What can I do??
I’m sorry this is happening to you.
Your landlord is not allowed to physically remove you from your rental unit. In Mississippi, there is an eviction process that the landlord must follow. This process involves providing notice, filing an eviction action in court, and obtaining an order of eviction.
If you’re concerned for your safety, I recommend contacting the police and applying for a restraining order.
If you feel you are being wrongfully evicted, I recommend reaching out to an attorney. If you can’t afford an attorney, consider contacting The Mississippi Center, an organization that offers free legal assistance to low-income individuals.
