Ashland, VA asked in Landlord - Tenant for Florida

Q: I have a lease that expires 1017. Landlord has not provided a new lease to sign yet nor have they served a termination.

The landlord has cashed the check that would cover the period of 10/17-11/17. Does the lamndlord bear any responsibilty for providing me a renewed lease? Can the landlod, at this point, decide to not grant a yearly lease and consider me to on a month to month lease therefore charging higher rent?

A: It depends on how the original contract you signed is worded. Some times you can go month to month at the same rate. Sometimes you go month to month, but with an increased rate. I would discuss this with your landlord first before seeking legal representation.
