What is the name of your state (only U.S. law)? Mississippi
In March of this year I signed a lease with an individual who lives on land that is heir property. There are 10 siblings all together. 8 live out of state and the landlord I signed with lived here with a brother in another house on the property. I have been paying the rent to the landlord on my lease. He was convicted of a crime and sentenced to a year in jail 3 weeks ago. In those 3 weeks the siblings that are also owners of the land (I did not know this beforehand but gained quite a bit of insight three weeks ago) contacted me and told me they were evicting me. With a 12 month lease in place, and current on rental payments do I have any legal standing or should I move. I am currently looking for another place but it will take a few months. I was told I could send the money to the landlord who is incarcerated and the lease still be valid. The siblings do not want payment, instead for me to leave the property. Is the lease still valid even though the person I signed the lease with was not the only owner of the property?
*The property is still in the name of the deceased parent and the landlord I signed the agreement with had two previous lease agreements with two previous tenants that the siblings did not have any concern over. I tried to work out an agreement to send the money to one of the siblings but they refuse to accept payment.
