I am in WA and rent our house. The agreement expires on 1 July

Customer Question

I am in WA and rent our house. The agreement expires on 1 July and I have indicated by email we would like to renew. I have asked they consider reducing the rent. The manager called and asked by how much. I said I thought $50 pw would be reasonable. I heard nothing for a week until today when the manager sent me an agreement to sign with rent at $5o less. We have not signed and now want to allow the lease to terminate on the expiry date. Can we? Thanks
JA: OK. The Lawyer will need to help you with this. Have you consulted a lawyer yet?
Customer: No
JA: Please tell me everything you can about this issue so the Lawyer can help you best. Is there anything else important you think the Lawyer should know?
Customer: No that is all quite straight forward.
JA: OK. Got it. I'm sending you to a secure page on JustAnswer so you can place the $5 fully-refundable deposit now. While you're filling out that form, I'll tell the Lawyer about your situation and then connect you two.
