I Do Not Have The Money To Pay My Rent. My Landlord Says My Furniture Will Be Placed On The Street If I Don't Pay The Rent. Can My Landlord Enter The Residence And Remove My Furniture?

No, the landlord cannot personally put your possessions on the street without a court order. A dispossessory proceeding can be initiated by the landlord which could result in your being evicted. A sheriff, marshall, or constable may then remove your property from the premises if a court has ordered that they may do so.
