Ask a Canada Law Question, Get an Answer ASAP!
Hello! My name is***** you for your question. I'm reviewing it now, and will post back again shortly.
When you came to this agreement 10 years ago what was agreed in terms of the rent and when if ever it could be raised?
And for 10 years there was no raise in the rent?
They most assuredly have to adhere to the verbal agreement. Verbal agreements are binding though sometimes they are harder to prove.
But you won't have trouble proving this as there are two witnesses.
So they cannot kick you out of the storage unit.
You or a lawyer acting for you may have to threaten a lawsuit.
If they are planning to auction the unit off soon you should be sure to have the letter sent at once.
Does that help as a starting point?
