If the Government Is Involved, It Can Be Harder to Evict You

Anytime the government is involved in the operation, ownership or financing of a building, or has provided rent subsidies, a landlord can have a more difficult time evicting a tenant. The landlord may have to show "good cause" for the eviction, or adhere to additional procedural requirements. If you know that a city, state or federal agency is in some way connected with your building, you should bring it to the attention of your Tenants' attorney. A good lawyer will research that point anyway, but certainly share what you know at your first consultation. It may be used in erecting a defense against being evicted. It can also buy you some extra time to raise money for rent, or to correct any problems the landlord is alleging that you're responsible for.
