NO! Never, ever, ever can a landlord barr you access from the property in any way, shape, or form without an eviction order in hand. He must provide 3 or 5 day notice to "cure or vacate" per your lease/state law, then go to court to have you evicted. During that time, he cannot deny you access to the rental unit. What he is proposing (changing the locks, putting your stuff out, etc) is called a "constructive eviction" and is illegal in ALL states. In no way am I condoning your nonpayment of rent, but you do have rights. Inform him of this, and if he still attempts to barr you from the rental unit, then you can sue him.

If you have no lease, he can give you a 3- or 5-day notice whatever is procedure in your state. He may not have to get a court eviction order. He has to give you more than 12 hours, depending on your state law.

What does you rent contract say... he has gave you time to move, not much time, so yes if he has done it all by contracts you better be moving. (for those who think this is illegal, well that is what I thought, we thought when some rent houses were built in my town... you signed a contract or agreed to what they said... they wanted you to move, you moved...no 30 days to move, no nothing... there were no one sueing, no law saying this couldn't be done, and as we found out it was legal.. it was done, you lost!!!!!.) (Your state laws may be different from mine.. but it doesn't have to be filed in court. where I live if it is in the contract. Check your local/state laws as may be different than mine.)
