Here is an update: Rent is paid through February 29 at the landlord's request. Landlord still wants her out tomorrow. Landlord is represented by an attorney. I got the following by email today:
February 15, 2012
Dear JXXXX and CXXXXX:
It is now Wednesday, February 15, 2012, and JXXXX's Notice To Quit becomes effective February 16, 2012.
As my wife and I have stated to you on several occasions, verbally, and in my emails of January 6, 2012 and July 11, 2011, we do not want to be landlords and intend to sell the house located at XXXXXXX, Houston, Texas 770XX. We feel we can no longer delay the listing of this property. In order to prepare it for viewing by real estate agents, it is necessary that all of JXXXX's personal property be removed.
Since XXXX and I have not received any communication from either one of you, we can only assume that on February 16, 2012, all of JXXXX's possessions will be removed from the property. XXXX and I will then proceed to dispose of anything left in the house, turn it over to a real estate agent, who will place a universal lock on the property for other real estate agents to access for showing.
Please contact me immediately regarding your plans to vacate the premises, along with the removal of JXXXX's possessions.
This is official notice from me as Executor of the Estate of XXXXXXXXXXXXX that we will proceed under the foregoing assumption beginning at midnight, February 16, 2012.
Executor of the Estate of XXXXXXXX
I know that they have to post a 3 day evict, and file in JP court, but he seems like he intends to ignore the proper judicial channels and put everything on the street. Since the rent is paid through the end of the month, it is my understanding I have until the end of the month to move her, assuming we do not go to court over this matter.
