If the Landlord signs the lease with a tenant and finds out the tenant has been evicted 8 times?
This should have been disclosed when the landlord performed the background check, before the lease was signed. Well, if the landlord had an application for an apartment to which the tenant denied having been evicted if there were questions that asked such, then the landlord can terminate the lease for the tenant having falsified the information given.
Normally the bankruptcy filing has nothing to do with whether or not the tenant has paid his rent. A landlord does not have the right to evict a tenant simply because the tenant filed chapter 7 unless that is part of the lease. The terms of the lease determine if the tenant will be evicted. If the tenant pays the rent, he should not be evicted.
Can someone with a Power of attorney for someone who inherited his mothers property evict without notice if he sells property in Ohio?
The person in the property (the tenant) will have a lease. This is a legal document which sets out how the tenant may be evicted (but can not ignore the federal or state laws that may also apply). This lease is between the tenant and the landlord (whoever the landlord may be) and it will normally specify a period of notice that the landlord MUST give the tenant if the landlord wishes to evict the…
Can a landlord redecorate and fix the house for selling while the current tenants are still renting and living there?
I am presuming we have three components here: a landlord, a tenant, and a subtenant. The landlord in this case is presumably renting to a tenant, while the tenant is presumably renting to a subtenant. I presume that tenant has a lease while the subtenant doesn't. The tenant becomes the landlord for the subtenant. Since there is no lease (in most states subletting does not involve a lease) in this case, the tenant who is…
The simplest answer is no. The tenant has the right to peaceful enjoyment of the property. A more complete answer is .. it depends. If the activity is in any way illegal, then the landlord can likely break the lease. If the activity is a disturbance to others, then it is likely a violation of the lease and enough to have you evicted, or end the lease.
The Tenant or the Landlord. The Tenant may be in violation of the terms of the lease, and as such may be evicted. Or the Landlord may be at fault for violating his terms of the lease. Examples of Tenant violation include, but do not limit to: failure to pay rent on time, damage to the unit, unruly behavior or guests, or being arrested. Examples of Landlord violation include, but do not limit to: failure…
No. A lease is a legally binding contract, which obligates both the landlord and tenant to a tenancy for the term of the lease. If you and the landlord both signed a lease, and the landlord refuses to give you occupancy of the property, you need to see a landlord-tenant attorney or tenant's rights group immediately!
It depends. If the sub-tenant was there by right and the landlord allowed a sub-lease, then that's a situation where nothing has gone wrong. If the landlord is suing, it sounds instead like the tenant did not have the right to sublet and in that case they are responsible to complete the lease and the sub-tenant may not have had the right to be there.
Normally the landlord must give at least a 30-day notice before the expiration of the lease that he will not renew it, so the tenant must leave. There is one exception: if the tenant is in violation of the terms of the lease, the landlord may terminate the lease and give such short notice for the tenant to leave.
Commercial real estate landlord - tenant issues. Can a landlord auction off tenants assets for back rent?
If there is no lease involved, and there are no violations of the terms of the lease or agreement, the landlord has to give at least 30 days of notice before the next rent is due, for the tenant to vacate the premises. If there is a lease involved and there are no violations of the terms of the lease, the landlord must wait until the end of the lease term in order to ask…
Lease says that landlord is responsible for lawn mowing. Landlord will not honor this. Can lease be broken by tenant?
You live in Washington and rent a condo the landlord told you before you can move out you have to find a new tenant can he by law require you to do this?
This is usually the standard requirement on a lease; absent a lease he cannot require this. But if you plan to move out before the lease expires then the landlord can require for you to find a replacement tenant, or you may be required to pay the rent for as long as the unit remains unoccupied, up to the time he finds a new tenant or the lease expires, whichever comes first.
A security deposit is a refundable deposit that a tenant pays to their landlord before they move into a property As long as a tenant abides by the terms of their lease, this deposit should be returned to a tenant when their lease has expired. There are certain situations where a landlord is allowed to keep all or part of a tenant's security deposit.
Either the Landlord or Tenant may terminate a lease upon giving to the other party the required written notice in accordance with the agreed terms of the lease. The tenant will pay up any outstanding balance to the landlord and the landlord will reimburse the tenant for any agreed leasehold improvements to the demised premises.
Original tenant dies and her siblings and son are in the house The siblings sign a lease with the landlord Can the landlord terminate the lease after running a background check?
In many states, yes; in many, no. But if a landlord doesn't give a tenant a copy of his lease then he cannot expect the tenant to follow all the terms of it. If the tenant does fail to follow the terms and the landlord takes him to court, the tenant can argue that he wasn't provided a copy of the lease.
Yes, a landlord can threaten to evict you for any reason. Whether he can evict you is another issue. Basically, if you are not abiding by the terms agreed thereto on the lease then you can be evicted. However, you cannot be evicted for retaliatory reasons, such as because you asserted your rights as a tenant or because you contacted certain agencies to complain that your landlord is not complying with their rules, for example…
If the landlord and tenant have a binding lease together then the landlord cannot evict the tenant without a valid reason, that being the violation of the terms of the lease, which may include, but not limited to, nonpayment of rent. If the landlord no longer wants the tenant living in this property, he can simply decide not to renew the lease and give the tenant the proper notice of such refusal, so that the…
Yes. The building belongs to the landlord and needs the key in case of an emergency, or if a tenant abandons the property. Also, you should probably check with the landlord prior to changing locks. There might be a clause in the lease stating that only the landlord can change a lock, not the tenant.
Can a landlord hold a tenant responsible for a lease agreement if the tenant was not mentally competent and no attorney was present at the signing of the lease agreement?
Not while he's holding the security deposit and the tenant is still living on the property. If your landlord finds that the tenant has damaged the home of landlord can give him the opportunity to fix it, sue the tenant for such damage - even if the tenant is still living on the property - or begin the eviction proceedings for violating the terms of the lease with the proper notice asking the tenant to…
Almost all leases have "escape clauses" that allow the tenant to break the lease for reasons that are listed in the lease. Also, states have laws regarding landlord responsibilities to the tenant, and the landlord may be sued if they do not meet these obligations. Please note that each state has their own laws regarding landlord-tenant responsibilities.
if you have a lease you will leave when the lease is finished, if you are on a month to month agreement , the landlord must give you a written notice for you to move within 2 months, if the landlord wants you evicted, they can only do that through a court order with a bailiff present, if you have not paid your rent or are in arrears the landlord has every right to remove…
If you sub-lease a unit, then the tenant that leases to you is considered your Landlord. Their landlord is NOT the sub-lessee's landlord. The master landlord, who usually does not allow subleasing, is not bound by the Landlord/Tenant Act toward the sub-lessee. So if they kick out your sub-landlord, they are kicking out EVERYONE. The master landlord cannot lock out his tenant unless they legally evict that tenant. Since a sub-lessee doesn't have the same…
Nothing. The landlord need only give you the notice required by law (20 days in WA) and then simply move back in. The exception is if you have a lease--in that case, the landlord must honor the term of the lease unless the landlord and tenant mutually agree to break the lease. In that case, the tenant is free to demand compensation of the landlord for the landlord's breaking the lease.
This would depend upon the terms of the lease, but generally depend on why the landlord wants to terminate the lease. If the tenant violated the terms of the lease then the landlord can terminate the lease after proper warning or after proper notice is given. Otherwise the landlord has to wait until the lease expires and can choose not to renew.
