Any clause in a lease must be « fair » otherwise the owner could violate unfair contractual terms. In some states, if a tenant continues to pay rent after a tenancy agreement expires and the landlord accepts the rent, the tenancy agreement is automatically renewed. The new lease is the same length as the old lease and contains the same provisions. Hello, I rented a room from a lady of the week for about 2 mos. I have never signed a contract that I mentioned for legal purposes, but we need one, but never one. I went to work for 2 weeks, but still pay numbers, and while I left, she said that someone slammed her door, where I saw no harm and that all my valuables were stolen. She didn`t tell me anything about it until I got home and had to find everything… 60″ LG plasma tv, my laptop, about 2000.00 in tools, and some other items that I have the series #s on TV and some tools maybe even laptop. I was not aware of nearly 2 Wks and imagined that my business was far away, I was curious, but just at the time I discovered that I still had rights without contract and with verbal agreement . It`s not the end of what I thought I was paying rent, because that`s what I had agreed to, but I stayed elsewhere for about a week, because I was angry and ignorant of what was to do, then had nowhere else to go, so on the 2nd night I was back, she had a racket friend on and I went to bed closed my door had her wallet in bed with me and when I kept the door open and wallet I went out and my car disappeared, she said, her friend must have stolen it! So I`ve been in possession of over 10,000.00 and I don`t know what to do, I can`t even get screwed at work and I know she`s been touched on it none of their time, what can I do legally? I returned my car 2 wks later, but it was demolished the cops are not helping. Please give me some information about my rights I am so screwed, it is so unfair that they are also insurance owners If the landlord bears the tenant`s illegal termination fee, the landlord can sue the tenant if the damage exceeds the tenant`s deposit.
A landlord should only sue the former tenant after relocation. Until the property is leased again, the owner can accurately assess the loss. The lessor may complain about a tenant`s search costs, for the period during which the property remained empty, about legal fees if such a clause was included in the tenancy agreement, and about the difference between the tenancy paid by the new tenant and the rental of the former tenant. Tenants who are in real financial difficulty through COVID-19 can terminate at least 21 days in advance to terminate the lease under a fixed-term lease. In these cases, the tenant is only required to pay the rent until the end of the 21-day notice, and no compensation may be sought for damages resulting from an early termination of the lease. Hello, I have rented my property to the owner for over four years. He was just on a rolling contract after my initial contract that was in order.
