I lost my job 3 months ago, and I am worried. I am coming up on my renewal and with that comes the filling out of the employment verification form. I feel as though when she finds out that I have lost my job, I will get evicted. I have had assistance within these 3 months on paying my rent, and currently have a interview coming up.

Lease renewals are usually automatic and don't require any additional information from the tenant. You can't be evicted (which is a court process) just because you lost your job. You can only be evicted if you default on rent or any other clause of your lease agreement. You need to read your lease carefully and see what it says about renewal and then need to figure out how you're going to pay rent for the next year if you renew it and you don't have a job by that time. Good luck!
