Legal Question

Asked on: 5/16/13, 10:07 am

Ohio. 12 mos. lease, this is my 8th mos. This mos(may) will be the 3rd time I will have to pay a $50 late fee that per my contract is charged after the 7th. She has asked me to leave.My contract does not give a date when late rent will no longer be accepted, it simply states after the 7th $50. Posted a 3 day notice on sat.(which should expire midnight tonight), and she went to my house yesterday and entered the premises to see if I had left because she could not reach me by phone or email(she had no problem leaving a note yesterday stating she entered the house) she came by during work hours...she stated she couldnt see in the windows because the blinds were closed and no car in the driveway..of course there wasnt a car in the driveway, i was working. If she was in question as to whether or not I was still there(because my phone&internet;are off), she should have left a note AFTER the legal 3 days had expired..not entered the property. She needs to go through court proceedings before she can enter the house correct? I know she trespassed&also;insinuated in her note the 3 days had passed(if she counted wknds). Can she evict if I pay rent+late fee next week.
