Legal Question

Asked on: 8/20/13, 6:23 pm

I lost my job a few months back and have yet to find a new one which left me unable to pay rent once my savings accoubt dried up. I didn't file my response to the unlawful detainer in time so my landlord went to get a writ of possession which I assume he was granted. I am in the wrong because I can't pay so I'm not fighting it, but I have nowhere else to go so I am trying to stay as long as i can. This morning I woke up to find that the building manager had used her keys to let herself into my apartment and was in my living room with the landlord on speakerphone to inform me he was sending the sheriff my way. I have received no other documentation since the unlawful detainer, no copy of the writ of possession or a notice to vacate or a notice informing me that they intended to enter my apartment, she simply let herself in. Is this legal?
