when i went to lease an apartment i was informed i could not do a month to month lease. Later i was informed that this complex does do month to month leases after i had already signed. Can i get them to change the lease?? All of this happened in a 2 week time frame.
For the last 5 years I have had no
lease or payment agreement with
my landlord . I have continued to pay $475.00 a month from the original lease. I have lived here 11 years. 5 years ago my landlords son and i met and fell in love and he moved in with me. I have been ill for 3 years and unable to work. This month SSD was approved and i received lump sum. They say I owe then 36 months at $475.00 =
$17100 in back rent while I was sick. Their son has been giving them
money but they have not credited
him with any rent. Their excuse is the money he paid he owed us any way. They have laid all it on me and I feel half of whats owing is their sons responsibility which would be $8550.00. I think that in this state it is a month to month thing according to law, there has been no meeting of the minds on what was suppose to be have been paid since the son moved in with me. They told him $300.00 a month for the last 36 months and we ususally met that each month. Went to pay them and they jumped back to the original $475 and didn’t give us credit for any of the last 36 months. Where to now?
#1 I went in to sign a second 6 month lease on my apartment. Because I didn’t come in before the 1st of the month (per contract, lease actually ended the 31st of the month and not on the 6th, which is when my rent is due and when i moved in). They are now trying to charge me a 75 dollar month to month fee for this month only. The contract does not say anything about if you don’t renew your lease by this date then you will be charged a month to month fee. I found this out on the fourth of this month in a newsletter they stuck on my door. I went in promptly after the weekend to resign, still thinking my renew date was the sixth, which fell on a Sunday. Am I obligated to pay the 75?
#2 When I did resign my lease, the employee working resigned me at the rate I moved in on, which was a promotional rate. We both signed this document, he gave me a copy, and now they are telling me that it was wrong and want me to sign a new contract at the higher price. I told them that this wasn’t my problem, I’ve already signed the lease and they can’t make me pay the higher rent. Am I correct? Isn’t that why we have contracts?
Thank you for your time and help in this matter,
John is selling a small automotive business and the buyer (Sam) is going to continue using the current business name. The lease is to the business name but John signed the lease agreement. Sam wants to use the current lease (month to month) because he doesn’t want to sign for a year and he thinks the landlord will raise the rent.
Besides the ethical implications, what are the legal implications for John?
rental lease agreement not upheld
I sign a lease to rent a house on Feb. 8 2007. The realtor listing said the property will be ready by March 15, 2007. We signed and put a $500 deposit down which the realtor also stated in thier listing. March 15, 2007 has pass and we did not recicve a phone call. I had call the realtor office and she ask if I could call the current person renting and she also see can she reach them. By not getting the key on the date state puts me in a bind, I’m about the clear my apartment. Also I have stuff that was to be delivered that day, It’s costing me time and money because I planned my move date on the day I was to get the key. What kind of legal actions can I take? I don’t have a place for my family to live and already turned in my written 30 day notice to my current place of residents.
