: landlord took me to court for non-payment, came to agreement allowing a
time frame in order to move. date came & past agreed on extension, (all
time was paid for by me) however their lawyer had me sign agreement that
I would be out w/belongings by said date & time. If not the landlord has
the right to change locks & sell my property. I live in Suffolk co.,NY &
am a month to month. Thank-you

NEVER NEVER sign anything by a lawyer unless you fully understand and
agree to it. Might not be valid unless a judge "so ordered" it. Although
suffolk is different from NYC, I think that if you aren't out, then they
have a right to go back to court but cannot just change locks without
a court order. And they (I think) must wait a period of time before selling
property, but they can put it in storage and charge storage fees. But this
is only after a court-ordered eviction.
