I'm moving out of Florida for a new job. I don't see anything on the lease agreement about having to pay for the months left over on the lease. We turned a 30 day notice in and told them why. Now a week later they are saying we have to pay for the remaining months because the rent is too high and... Read more »
This would be governed by the terms of the lease. If there are no early termination provisions and the lease says you just need to give 30 day notice then that's all you need to do. Probably the first landlord to say they could not re rent since they are charging you too much. They still have...Read more »
My roommate and I recently signed a 12 month lease together, but he just moved out 2 months in, leaving me to be responsible for all the bills. I’m 19 and am unable to afford all the bills. If I just abandoned the apartment and lease and went to a different state, what would be the consequences?
The landlord is entitled to receive all the rents bargained for when the lease was signed. That means you owe the total of 10 more rent payments. However, the landlord must also make a good effort to re-let the apartment, which if done ASAP will stop the bleeding (end your responsibility to...Read more »
Common law provides that notices such as this should be made on or before the 14th day following the date the two week lease period ends. So, assuming the rent you paid on 12/13 was timely the last day to deliver the 14 day notice to vacate would be December 27. It appears that you now have until...Read more »
Unless withholding rent is allowed by the terms of the written lease you may be evicted for doing so. If the electrical repairs are necessary in order to live comfortably you would be better off if you notify the landlord and give them 30 days to fix it. If not fixed after 30 days move out. Then if...Read more »
Our new property manager asked to see a copy of my current lease and my recent payments. I can't find my lease. I know I signed one and had it. I have looked everywhere. I have proof of most of my recent payments. Our lease is up in about 2 months. Can I be kicked out if It is an apartment complex... Read more »
Cooperate with the new property manager; show all receipts for rent payments and get copies of all checks payable to the complex; be honest and tell them you have misplaced your copy of the lease and ask them to make a copy for you. This will stretch out the situation until your lease is up. If you...Read more »
We have recently moved out of a rental house in Naples, FL. We rented it directly from the owner. The owner moved out of town and asked a friend of his to meet me to get the keys and do the final walkthrough. When we did the walkthrough his friend had no comments and said the house looks great.... Read more »
Received letter from apartment management for a 7-day to cure eviction notice on 12/17/19. 7 days would be 12/24/19 but because they’re closed for Christmas Eve they emailed us and said they would be coming on 12/13/19 which is only 6 days. Are they legally allowed to change the date to sooner... Read more »

My apartment complex just got a new property manager. She knocked on my door asking to see a copy of my lease and my recent payments. I cannot find my lease but I do have most of my recent payments. I'm probably missing 3 stubs for the whole year. I asked my neighbors if they was asked for this... Read more »
Are you sure that she is actually authorized by the landlord to manage the apartment complex? Contact the owner or the old manager and make sure; while you are at it ask them why the "new manager" doesn't seem to have her documentation.
This is more than a landlord/tenant issue. Maybe you can't be kicked out without notice but if this other person is being allowed to live there things can get very difficult and uncomfortable despite what the law may provide. Technically if the landlord wants you out the landlord would have to...Read more »
with the neighbor next door that moved here in 2014. She put up a short chain link fence on the property line and says her property extends 2 feet into my rental property. There are 2 dead small pine trees 2 living pines about 40 feet tall and 1 foot circumstance. She says I planted the trees so I... Read more »
You are not responsible. If anybody is responsible, it would be your landlady. but I don't see why she would be responsible either. If the trees are on her property she should remove them, if she desires.
I broke my lease more than 2 months ago, and per the lease I am paying rent until they rerent the apartment. They retook possession for my account, and my deposit was refunded without any issues. I was helping them find someone, and today the person I sent to tour it, was told that they are... Read more »
Had you presented an acceptable new tenant immediately--you would be off the hook and the new tenant would get the leak fixed by the landlord. Since no one knows exactly when the leak started, and since you did not produce a new tenant as agreed until after...Read more »
it is still not working, can I terminate the lease for their failure to fix as the lease states they would. I havent paid rent because they have sent eviction notices multiple times after I contacted the city and they found multiple code violations, including non working smoke detectors and many...
