Unfair rent collection

Posted by Ruby on December 26, 2000 at 13:05:17:

My landlord is suing me for unpaid rent. I moved out on 11/5/99, and paid everything up till that day. They want me to paid the rent for the entire month even though I didn't live there. My lease also expired in September, and I never renewed. The debt collector they hired is sending my employer an income execution and I have never received any summons as they sent to my old address.

Are they entitled to collect rent for period which I didn't live in? Do they have the right to post a judgement on me without giving me a chance to dispute. Because there is no lease for the last 2 months I lived there, do they even have a case here? The balance is $900, and if I hire a lawyer for this, the fee is more expensive. What should I do?

Please help.
