We made a verbal agreement with my stepfather in 2011 and we started paying to rent the house when they moved to St. Louis. We paid rent every month and we paid extra for a number of months for the down payment, and they were constantly threatening to kick us out because things are not what they want. We have invested over $60,000 in this house now my question is if they can break this agreement, can we get our money back? If this happened, a legally binding lease agreement was entered into with our lease agreement without a lease agreement. HI My parents rent real estate by private owners in the last 2moths You will see the lease in the property for 6moths. The landlord then gives the keys and said you can move in today, so they pay him the rent and the deposit and they get no proof that they paid. Anyway, they now live there 3moths and the owner does not want them to give the signed lease, my parents are getting very uncomfortable because they are now afraid of having to leave one day and they were right, if we call him every day about it, he keeps calling him, you don`t need it and today he sends a letter “Leave on January because am happy not about that you want the agreement” Any advance please?? Anyone can give advice, please. My 72-year-old mother has lived in her house for almost 20 years. The last 10 years have been with the same owner. She received a letter yesterday from a lawyer who said the landlord said that on December 14, 2017, it will be the 10th birthday of him as owner, and the rent will increase from $350 a month to $600 per month. It does not have a lease.
Welcome to all consultations. She is worried next to her. @Terrell Garren practically say they are not a month away because they had an oral agreement with the previous owner. The written lease states 1 OCT 16 as the start date of the 24-month lease. When I left to increase the rent and offer a new lease, they suddenly had a three-year verbal lease with the previous landlord. I moved to a place without signing a contract and I made agreements to pay the owners. Before payment, she asked me to change locks with my belongings in the house. I called the police, but they advised me on the owner`s act. I asked what would happen if I jumped out the window and stayed again until I found a new place, they had no comment. What can I do and how can I do it? Did you get a lawyer who shut up? As a general rule, if you buy a property a hereditary tenant, it is SOP to ask the seller to give a letter from Estoppel signed from any tenant that confirms how much deposit they paid, how much rent they must pay, how much their rent is up to date, how much is owed by the landlord or landlord to the tenant, any oral or other agreement outside the rental agreement, if… Each tenant must sign such a letter in order to avoid the use of agreements according to the fact. The fact that a landlord or tenant does not have a written tenancy agreement does not affect any of their legal rights.
Both parties are still protected by law or by law. Unfortunately, as a tenant, you have very few rights in law. Your landlord can use “your” room if you are not there and you can distribute with reasonable notice – probably a month in your case. You can move your belongings as long as they make sure they are not damaged. My son did not sign an agreement with the owner, only verbally. The owner now sells property, and calls us the night before to say that someone sees the property the next day. My son works, so I have to do it because he can`t afford to take a break. The owner came yesterday with a friend and another real estate agent, but he told us it was a visit. He told me today that someone will see tomorrow.
It`s not fair that he keeps doing it, I can get some advice please hello.
