I live in Nevada. I am in a 12mo lease that started on 3/1/01. My rent is $1050/mo & I paid a $1250 security deposit at lease inception. Unfortunate circumstances have made me have to leave the state at the end of this month (June 2001). I have yet to pay my rent fpr June that was due on 6/1/01. I called the realty company to explain my situation & ask for them to keep my security deposit & let me stay to the end of the month. That is not good enough for the landlord & I was told today that I will be getting a 5 day letter. I have a wife & 2 small children & have nowhere to go & there is no financial help available to me. I understand the law is in the favor of the landlord since I have not paid this month's rent & I am still in the house & wish to stay till the end of the month. What legal rights do I have in order to stay here till 6/30/01? I have heard that if I respond to the 5 day letter with a plan then I may be able to stay. How do I go about this? Do I need legal representation? Will the plan have to include payment? The realtor has put a sign on our lawn today.
