    Rental Agreements: Re: Month-to-Month Rental Agreement Form

    The only difference between a lease and a rental agreement is the period. So go to a local Realtor who deals with rentals and change the period. Be sure to read it over to make sure the terms are...

    Breaking a Lease: Re: Breaking a Lease Due to Illegal Activity

    First, it seems that you left out some pertinent information. So NOW I understand your concern.

    Second, it would seem to me to be difficult to prove who supplied the beer and who owned it when it...

    Breaking a Lease: Re: Breaking a Lease Due to Illegal Activity

    Why does your daughter care? Would you daughter call the police if she saw someone jay walking? Is she willing to call the police regarding this matter, as this is a criminal matter? Then let it...

    If you can get the landlord to, yes.

    Repair and Maintenance: Re: Renovations and Rent

    While it sounds unfair, because you tried to do the right thing, but under the laws of your state, you may have legally abandoned the property by moving out and may be liable for the balance of the...
  10. Security Deposits: Re: Property Manager Has Not Replied to Our Request for a Walk Through

    Your obligations are to the landlord and your dealings with the property manager are as the landlord's agent. If the landlord has an arrangement with the property manager to pay a commission for new...
  11. Re: Owner of Building Going Through Management Company

    There has to be more to this. Unless the landlord is selling the building, or the lease says otherwise, it doesn't seem that the landlord has a right to do this and may be breaching the covenant of...
  12. Moving Out: Re: Am I Responsible For Damages Caused By Former Roommate?

    I can see where you would probably prevail over your roommate over some issues, but I don't know what you can prove and can't prove. If you wind up paying all the damages, you should have an easy...

    Re: Un-Cooperative Property Manager

    I can't think of the term, but the substitution of parties is not often allowed, which is differentiated from subletting. Often there is an additional term in the lease that says that the landlord...

    Quiet Enjoyment: Re: Pot Smoking Neighbors - Any Recourse?

    I doubt that any amount of talking to the offending tenants will work. They probably feel that they can do anything they want in their own home or apartment. The problem is that any residential...
  15. Moving Out: Re: Am I Responsible For Damages Caused By Former Roommate?

    If you were on the lease, you were jointly and severally liable for the damages to the landlord with your rommate. If the damages occurred before you moved in or after you moved out, the roommate...
  16. Applying to Rent: Re: Are Imposition of "Holding Fees" Legal Before an Actual Move in Date?

    You may be in deeper than you think because the problem is bigger than if the fee is refundable or not. While you haven't actually signed the lease, you committed yourself in "good faith" to sign the...
  17. Re: Do I Have a Case Against My Property Manager (Long Read)

    Yours is a complicated case and I think that industry custom will determine in large part whether you have a case or not and I am not familiar with industry custom in yours or any other area.

    You...

    Rental Agreements: Re: Girlfriend of Roommate May Have Moved in

    Generally you can inspect your tenant's space if you give the tenant the required notice for your state, but you can't do it so often that it is abusive.

    Eviction Process: Re: Can I Change the Locks?

    I think the others misunderstand. I agree that you can't lock your "tenant" out until you get an order of eviction and an eviction warrant, but you can change the interior locks to spaces this...
  20. Re: Just Found Out Our New Apt. is for Sale As Condo Indiana

    I disagree. A landlord may want to include a similiar clause in the lease just in case the landlord decides sell the property.

    You forgot about acquisition costs and any costs to defend ownership rights.

    Giving Notice: Re: Insufficient 60-Day Notice to Vacate Fee

    If I am reading this correctly, you could have been held to the lease and made to pay for an additional month so that you got that sixty days in. So you should probably consider yourself lucky you...

  24. Moving Out: Re: Early Termination-Landlord Not Following Lease

    I don't see why you can't demand some kind of proof when the apartment is rented. If the landlord took you to court for the damages, he/she would have to do the same.

    I don't see why you can't...

    Re: Attorney Fees

    I would say that unless the dismissal order grants you reasonable attorney's fees, which I doubt it does, you are out of luck.
