One Minneapolis woman was evicted from her home but never missed a rent payment.

Eighty-one-year-old Blanche Lenear became caught in the middle of a battle between her landlord and the city of Minneapolis. Lenear's landlord lost a rental license because he owed Minneapolis fines. The city gave Lenear a six week extension but she was forced to move.

We're told this is a rare situation, but the city says renters do have resources. Any renters concerned about their landlord should check with the city where they live.

Renters concerned about their landlords can do their homework here.
