It's cold, I'm sick and child 33 with TBI. Is this legal in SC? House being sold, it's 3 of us. Executor taking other siblings part.

If you are not on the deed, then yes, you can be evicted. The home is now part of your parents estate, and is considered an asset, who are the beneficiaries of the will? My guess is that this is being done to clean up and fix up the home to place on the market for a quick sale.

Hiring an attorney would be your best option, most offer free consultation, why not get on the phone and see if you can TT one.

In the meantime, I would look for a new place to live, as no matter what, your time of living in your parents home is coming to an end. Have you spoken tom the Executor? I would, see if you can get an extension, time to find a new place to live.

The confusion over “eviction” is a common issue.

Only a court can order an eviction...and a legally ordered eviction can only be carried out by an officer of the court.

so...you got a written notice. This was likely a notice of termination of your tenancy. (Yeah, even without paying rent...you were an established tenant by virtue of receiving mail there). Once they have notified you of that termination, you must vacate on the date or face a judge.

depending on your State, the notice can be as short as 2 weeks (Florida) or as long as 2-3 months (California ... if you lived there more than 2 or 3 years).

if you can afford it...go see and attorney. If you cannot afford an attorney, then go visit the county court...ask for the housing court clerk office. There you can ask for reference to legal aide for housing court.

do this quickly. All of this is very time sensitive

meanwhile, start your search for a new place to move to.

stay well, and keep your chin up.

You will need to check the laws as they can differ in each state. If you were living in your parents' home the executor can evict you. This means they pay a fee to file and then must post an eviction notice at the house for 30 days. But if you were your parents' caregiver (and paid) I've seen comments where they don't need to give you any notice. This sounds like a tough situation so please talk to an attorney.
