That burns. Things could get pretty heated when you try and fight it, but maybe they'll fire the apartment manager and you can have your home back!
The owners of the apartment don't care. Unfortunately, many people only care about money these days. If you end up screwed, it sucks for you.
It's not a matter of the owners caring or not. That's one of the situations where an eviction wouldn't hold up in court. If the judge doesn't overturn something like this, I'd be amazed. Then again, there's no telling what kind of mood the judge will be in, either. But if OP digs enough, I'm sure they can find a solid legal precedent to fight it.
You can't really assume that about OP and the roommate. There isn't enough information about the whole situation. From what the FML says, the only reason there's a notice is because of unpaid rent from the time the apartment was unlivable. There could have been similar evictions doled out to other tenants, as well, but the story doesn't say. We only have the information that was given, so until OP decides to comment and give more of the story, I would follow just what we've already been told.
It depends. If the OP is still on the lease, there's a possibility they would still have to pay rent regardless of whether the house itself has become unlivable. And sadly, some judges are asshole who still consider the renters responsible for paying rent until their lease ends and/or they break the lease. It's a loophole...though it really shouldn't be.
Wouldn't the people evicting you gave common sense, and think that the room is unlivable?
