How much time must a landlord give you to move out when allowed to stay for free?
This is not legal advice.Any level of government may impose laws impinging on this situation. The following is a generalization over different jurisdictions.When there is no consideration, there is no contract.That means that, in any contract, each party must receive some benefit, and must give some benefit as a reward for it. For example, when some philanthropist gives some valuable item to an organization, and the transaction is recognized in a legal document, the receiver pays the donor typically one dollar, or an equivalent amount in whatever currency is relevant, and this payment is recorded as part of the legal document that records the transaction. Otherwise, the contract is not legally enforceable, and/or the gift may subsequently be subject to dispute by the e.g. heirs of the donor, or other parties with some claim, however tenuous, on the gift.In particular, a gift to a family member is often registered as made “for natural love and affection and one dollar”.Specifically, in the present question, if the phrase “for free” means that the landlord receives no compensation for the occupation, then there is no legal contract. Therefore, nobody has any obligation to anybody.A separate provision of law that might impinge on the situation is “squatter’s right”. This means that if the owner of real estate permits some other entity to occupy some space for some time, even only passively by not communicating with the occupant, the occupant may acquire a right to indefinite use of that space, after a prescribed period of such occupancy. Permitting public access to some space may similarly eventually make that space effectively public property. A typical such length of time is one year.However, squatter’s right is particularly variable from one jurisdiction to another, and its applicability to any particular case is typically a complicated matter to resolve.
Landlord asked us to watch girl upstairs and call him if wevthink she is moving out. We said yes. Today, he wants us to hand deliver a letter to her. I say no, boyfriend says yes. What do you think?
Please please pleaseDon’t get involved, the “hand delivered” letter is obviously not a nice letter as he would have delivered it themselves.Let’s say it’s the start of eviction. You are there a lot more that your landlord Andy you could become the target.Tell your landlord to grow a backbone
How much time does a landlord have to give a tenant to move out?
Generally speaking, when the lease expires it becomes a month to month tenancy with the same provisions as the lease (amount of rent, obligations etc).Here the rule is thirty days if no renewal is offered and a month to month is not agreeable to the landlord (rare).If it is an eviction notice (the one grace the law grants LLs here) it depends on the notice. If you assault (verbally or physically) the landlord or are actively damaging the property you get a 24 hour notice. I never had the misfortune to ever have to post one of those.A notice of Substantial Breach gives fourteen days from the date it was posted for the tenant to vacate the premises. It is given when a pattern of violations occur (multiple late payments, partial payments, violations of various clauses within the lease.The pay or quit gives thirty days for a tenant to either pay the unpaid rent and bring the account up to date or leave.Here leases must contain the phrase ‘may be terminated by either party with thirty days written notice ‘.So, absent a tenant who chooses to fight an eviction, which brings in the courts (here) it can be anywhere from one day for a violent thug to thirty days for someone falling behind on their bills.Most tenants don’t fight eviction here for the simple reason that when you avoid the courts you avoid the official record showing your evictions. Most landlords want nothing more to do with a tenant who forced them to evict, so do not make it public that the tenant was evicted .
Could somebody help me to write an offer letter to rent out my commercial space as a landlord?
I would really contact a real estate lawyer in your local area. Commercial and residential leasing carries certain risks, and you want to make sure you are protected, given the potential consequences. Therefor, I would suggest going on Avvo.com - Legal. Easier. or Yelp or speaking with other local landlords, and getting a referral for an attorney to prepare this for you.
How long after move out does landlord have to sue for property damage?
Laws are going to vary by location, but odds are good that it’s at least 1 year for simple property damage, but it could be more for a breach of contract. However, odds are good that if there’s a real issue it will not take that long as the landlord will take action after some period of notice has been exceeded. This period would be spelled out in a demand letter giving you X number of days to make restitution or face a civil suite. Now, they may not have to send you such a letter, the process may have been spelled out in your lease.Also, keep in mind, most land lords are not going to wait 4,6, or more months to come after you - they’ll act quick as their likelihood that they will recover money from you will decrease with time - however if they simply want to come after you in small claims to get a judgment and punish you by getting an entry in your credit report they may do that purely in an effort to make it harder for you to rent from others and repeat the process… this assumes that something actually happened BTW…If you’re innocent, you need to show up and not loose by default. Bring any credible evidence you have, photos are great, emails too… Texts are likely not so great, and texting should never be used for business transactions as they are harder to prove up. If you have them, use them, but an old email gives a better “paper” trail.
If your landlord sells their property, how long do you have to move out?
In Oregon, the landlord can send a 90-day notice terminating a month-to-month rental agreement designating the date of termination. The Statute is ORS 90.427, and the paragraph that applies is (5)(d) as amended by Senate Bill 608. There are some prerequisites including notice of accepting an offer within 120 days. If the rental dwelling is on the same property as the landlord’s residence, then paragraph (8) applies, which allows for 30 day notice.You would “have to” move out by the date given in a statutorily valid notice. Tenants who do not vacate the premises become “holdover tenants.”
Can your landlord deny your right to initial inspection before moving out?
California law gives you the right to request an inspection before the end of your lease. It is up to you to request the inspection: If you decline to do so, your landlord cannot insist on conducting one. During a move-out inspection, which should take place within the two weeks before you leave, you and your landlord walk through your home. Your landlord can point out any damage that would trigger a deposit reduction. Your landlord must give you 48 hours notice of her arrival for the initial inspection. If you live in another state, you may not have a legal right to an initial inspection, but you can ask your landlord or property manager for one. If he agrees, you'll have a better chance at protecting your deposit.
