If your rental home is condemned by the city or county, they have the authority to deem it unfit for habitation, leading to potential eviction. However, even in such cases, landlords are not allowed to resort to "self-help" eviction methods to remove tenants from the property.

Condemned property rights

A city or county has the legal right to condemn a property. If the rental home that you are living in is condemned, the city or county can tell you that you can no longer live there. However, even if your rental home is condemned, your landlord does not have the right to use “self-help” eviction to remove you from the home.
