Hello I just bought a property and there were tenants in the house of the former owner that they rented the house without a contract, so I told the tenants that I would always rent the house, but I will come with a contract, so they did not get the idea and I just told them that everything remains the same but if I present them the contract with my laws and my conditions , it`s a problem they told me, the amount of rent I want is too much and they can`t pay the down payment, so what rights this and that I can say hello in this case. I rented my current apartment on February 28, 2015 with a 12-month contract signed. At the end of the first year, I just called my landlord to tell her that I would like to continue in the apartment, and she agrees with her. Normally, this conversation takes place every year in January. I just found a better home, and because I don`t want to cause any inconvenience, I wrote to her that we were going to evacuate the premises on January 1 (a month of wholesale written communication) and she says that because our contract does not end on February 28, she will keep my $2,000 deposit. The question now is whether she has only one contract that I signed and that ended on 28.02.16. What are my rights? Can it keep the deposit on the basis of these criteria? Thanks, I rented my basement to a guy on oral arrangement, later I discovered he was some kind of threat to my family, so I gave back his money and asked him to evacuate in a month. Am I doing the right thing? or am I faced with legal issues. Don`t worry if you don`t have a written agreement – a lease exists due to the fact that the property is leased. An oral agreement is also important.
This means that even without a written lease, there are legal possibilities. My friend or other tenant may only be “forced” to a tenancy agreement for the limited period of time if the landlord has grounds for eviction (e.g.B. rental arrears), in which case the tenant must be notified under Section 8. The evacuation of squatters is very similar to that of the tenants. While it may be tempting to drive people out of your property, it could put you in danger to cause legal trouble. Landlords and brokers will not be surprised to learn that every time a lease is granted to a tenant, a copy of the lease (ideally the original) must be retained. A lease creates rights and obligations and establishes them under a Shorthold Insurance lease agreement (`AST`). Entry into an AST promotes transparency and clearly establishes important contractual conditions such as the identity of the tenant, the rent to be paid, the property, when, how and by whom the rents must be made among other things.
However, there is a remedy for this problem if you find that you do not have a lease and that your tenants pose problems to you that justify their eviction. Despite the absence of a rental agreement, we are still able to find you a quick and legal eviction solution without you having to take action that may not be legal. If your landlord doesn`t solve anything, the options at your disposal will depend on the extent or minimization of the problem. Tenants have a wider range of options if the landlord refuses to make major repairs. They can break the lease and move, arguing that the lessor essentially evicted them (a “constructive evacuation”) because the unit is not viable. In many states, they can withhold rent until repairs are completed. Tenants can also make repairs on their own and then deduct their costs from rent, even if this is not an option in each state. Other options are the execution of repairs and the use of the lessor for repair costs in small court claims, as well as compensation for related injuries or property damage. Or you can draw a housing inspector`s attention to the problem if he violates a construction prefix.
