I was served a "rule to vacate or show cause" today for non payment of rent. In the letter it says "failure to vacate or respond within ten days may result in the issuance of writ or ejectment " does this mean in ten days they are gonna come in here and physically remove me my family and my stuff ?
May be so or maybe not! You should read this link that will explain in detail the law in South Carolina. If you respond then you may be able to stall the eviction by as much as a year. If you do not respond then you can and most likely will be moved out by the Sheriffs Office. If by chance you are not in South Carolina then other laws may rule.
