Yes, you may be evicted even though you are on house arrest. The fact that you are subject to house arrest does not deprive the landlord, a third party not subject to the conditions of your arrest, of his or her rights, including the right to evict you for breach of the lease, nonpayment of rent, or other good and lawsful cause, such as willfully damaging the landlord's property or threatening the landlord. Your arrest and its terms only binds you, not other parties.

The attorney providing the answer was not serving as the attorney for the person submitting the question or in any attorney-client relationship with such person. Laws may vary from state to state, and sometimes change. Tiny variations in the facts, or a fact not set forth in a question, often can change a legal outcome or an attorney's conclusion. Although AttorneyPages.com has verified the attorney was admitted to practice law in at least one jurisdiction, he or she may not be authorized to practice law in the jurisdiction referred to in the question, nor is he or she necessarily experienced in the area of the law involved. Unlike the information in the Answer(s) above, upon which you should NOT rely, for personal advice you can rely upon we suggest you retain an attorney to represent you.
