i rented my apt. 2 years ago at 645.00 a month.  now after two years it is 780.00 a month. I am a single mother who moved in new city to take on a job after I seperated from my husband. I had one full time job and a part time job but part time job was lost due to some health issues i have. At 645.00 and even 700.00 a month I was doing o.k. but now they just keep hiking up my rent and I am struggling from check to check. Then my dad was med-flighted to a hospital after he was in car accident with a semi.  thank god he survived but in order to see him and go back and fourth everytime he took a turn for the worse i had to use my rent money for gas so i could be by his side. I called the landlord and asked her not to cash the check for 5 days but she did it anyways so of course it bounced. so now i had to pay an extra 150.00 to cover overdraft charges and the late fees. So now i didnt have enough for the rent and basically said forget it and paid my utilities out of that check since i was late already and had to pay the late charge anyways and figured i would use next check to pay that months rent. but i got a eviction notice instead.  i told her i would give my months notice now then and move out, but she said i had to pay for that months rent and 2 more months since i have to give a two months notice and not a months notice.  so i guess my question is…if im evicted, do i still owe for that two months or do i pay up until the day im evicted? i guess im wondering because in order to move out i need every dime i can get to do it and i want to just pay some money when i have some to spare to give them. so then i dont have the whole amount to pay when it comes time to pay them.  thanks!
