Default How can code enforcement order me to vacate my own home

New Mexico

How can code enforcement order me to vacate my own home that mortgage is paid up to date as well as property taxes.
Code enforcement is giving me less than a week to vacate my home. Water is off because of huge amount of bill. Code enforcement said i was basically a squatter and home is being forclosed. My mortgage and property taxes are paid up to date. How can they throw me out on the street?

You are required to maintain basic services like running water in order to have a habitable home. Your mortgage company also requires you maintain the home in a livable condition. Pay your water bill (if you call they’d make arrangements) or move.

You can challenge them in court if there is any good reason to do so. They can't just act without some oversight.
But it might be easier to just get the bill paid.

You're going to have to provide more details.

Did some guy knock on your door and say you had to leave?
Did you get anything in writing?
Did you get a citation?
Have you been to court?
How long has this been going on and how did it all start?

Foreclosed by whom?

My guess is that they can't, at least not without a court ordered condemnation of the property.

In other words, you don't have to leave until a judge tells you to.

The city health department can declare your home uninhabitable. If you are in violation of the terms of your mortgage, the lender can certainly tell you to remedy or proceed to demand the loan be paid in full.

Normally the code enforcement issue a violation notice and you will get a chance to enquire about the reason or to rectify the violations. But you are not liable to vacate your home upon an order from the code enforcement.
