How much notice am I required to give my landlord that I am moving out of the room I am renting on month to month lease?
It it’s month-to-month, at least 30 days, same as he must give you.You can tell him on Oct. 1st that you plan to be out by Oct. 31st, for instance.Many leases have an auto-renew clause. Most month-to-month leases especially do.If yours has one, it will automatically renew until you or your landlord gives at least 30 days notice, or one of you dies.
When tenants give landlords 30-60 day written notice that they'll pull out of the lease, are they required by law to find replacement tenants?
let me speak from the perspective of southern florida… we have multiple answersif I made the lease:if you were a nasty person to me —-then on page 8 or 9 it state’s you’ll pay 2 months worth of damages for breaking the lease. thanks for giving me the heads up. and you still won’t get your security deposit back unless I first get into the unit. and I will get the 2 months for sure.If you were human to me —-then I’ll chat with you about page 8 or 9, and ask you for reasonable access to get a tenant. most likely I’ll find one on time, and you’ll eat the commision I had to pay to get it rented and since I had access, all of your security deposit is returned because I pointed out the damage that was fixable and you fixed it.most tenants understand the issues, so they will get a replacement tenant with the right qualification, and you won’t get a bill for lease terms breakage.
How many days before the rental lease expires? Does the landlord have to give notice of lease renewal in California?
I am not sure if it is a commercial property but if it is a residential rental property it automatically converts to a month-to-month contract so to answer your question the landlord doesn't have to give any notice to renew a lease if terms don't change. The rental would continue under same terms. If however they do want you to sign a new lease and are increasing rent, they have to give 30 days notice of any term changes
How can I get my name off of a month-to-month co-tenant lease? Three out of four tenants have vacated the property and given notice to the landlord, but the landlord refuses to take our name off of the lease. This is a rent controlled area.
Give him 30 days registered letter and say see ya. After you do that it ceases to be a lease so whether or not he wants to he cant have a lease full of people who have gone with notice and turned in the key remember to give keys back ….if its rent controlled which i am not familar ' i can't see it being hard at all to get another person in… not your problem though, notice , keys gone.
If I’m paying rent should my parents be able to tell me when I can and can’t work?
Your parents will never be out of your life. Well unless you pack up change your name and never make contact again. So if you think they have the "right" to tell you what to do is meaningless. As parents they have opinions on what is best for you and they will voice them whenever they feel necessary. Some parents are quieter than others, but even when they are old and living at your house they will comment on how often you work, how much time you spend with them, your relationships with other people etc etc. From the moment you entered this world (probably even earlier) you became priority #1 like it or not. Get the idea into your head. If you don't want to hear them quite so often move out and pay rent to someone else.
How do I convince my landlord to let me out of my lease?
Your lease protects you from your landlord kicking vou out if they get a better deal. It goes both ways.If you change your mind for whatever reason it's more work for him or her. If it doesn't book for a while you are effectively taking money from their pocket.We would like to think our landlord will just roll with us, but it's not what you agreed to. And it's legally binding.I am dealing with a similar situation right now. They were here 11 days and decided to move out because they met a girl. I had already issued receipts and they paid everything up front. They wanted to dump the whole thing in my lap.No. Not my problem. I did everything I was supposed to and more. Enough is enough.It would have made more sense if they had at least attempted to find a new tenant, etc. But they didn't. Their problem became my problem. And we see it over and over. That's it. We are done.Rental income is now precarious. A mom and pop situation could delay their mortgage payments.This is another reason why there are less places available. Landlords can't afford to float your instability. STR'S are paid up front.So go to your landlord. But be prepared to accept responsibility, up to and including cash back.
How do you get out of a rental lease when the landlord refuses to fix anything?
At least in Texas, needed repairs are divided into Habitability Issues and Normal repairs.A landlord is not required to make repairs while a tenant is not current on rent.If the tenant is current on rent, the property must be maintained however it was at the time the lease was signed, or the landlord has voided the lease by his inaction.If you submit a dated, written request for the repair and it doesn’t get fixed, “within a reasonable time”, you have the right to cancel the lease and move out.More accurately, the landlord has already voided the lease by not keeping the property in the same shape as when the lease was signed.While you can’t take off owing any money, you CAN move out despite the lease and not have the landlord come after you for lost rent.You’d want to talk to an attorney about that. It’s not something I’m familiar with, because every landlord I deal with maintains their houses. It not only keeps vacancy time down, but protects their investment.If it’s a habitability issue, you can send a written demand that it be fixed within seven days. There are three options if that doesn’t happen.You can cancel the lease and move out, getting a pro-rated refund of rent already paid. If you’re behind on rent, you could be sued for any rent you left owing, through the day you turn in the keys.You can have the repairs done yourself and deduct the receipts from the rent. Deducted repair cost on a problem can’t exceed one month’s rent. You can do it multiple times if there are multiple issues, though.You can do a “Repair & Remedy” suit in J.P. court. If you win that suit, the judge will issue a court order that the repairs be done, and may charge the landlord with contempt of court if it doesn’t happen.You have to be careful with habitability issues, because if you think something is habitability and it’s not, you could get gigged for some of the actions you take under a wrong assumption.As for problems that are NOT habitability, the landlord must maintain the property in the same condition it was when you rented it [unless you are behind on rent].If you are behind on rent, the landlord isn’t required to make normal repairs until your rent is all caught up, and you are subject to eviction if you withhold rent until an item is fixed.On two occasions, I have evicted tenants for non-payment, because they had the money in the bank but wouldn’t pay the rent with it until some problem was fixed.I explained to them that the landlord is required to maintain a property just as it was when the lease was signed, but not when rent is past due.Ironically, by withholding rent to get something fixed, they had relieved their landlord of the responsibility to fix it, AND now they were going to have an eviction judgment against them, to boot.
Renting in New York City: How many weeks of notice prior to the expiry of a lease is a landlord required to give a tenant that they do not intend to offer a renewal of the lease agreement, if any?
