Hello. My name isXXXXX will be happy to answer your question.
Are you online with me?
Welcome to JustAnswer.com
Did the landlord sign the residential lease with you?
I even moved in about a month agao.
Also, you have reviewed your lease and there is nothing in the lease that states that the landlord has to have a copy of your social security card on file?
No. Nor any other documentation.
Basically, it was up to the landlord to make sure that the landlord had verified and had copies of all the documentation related to the tenant, before executing a lease or the lease should have contained a provision which should have stated that the tenant is obligated to provide the landlord with his current ids/ss
Since that is not the case, it would not be a good idea to ignore the notice of breach, but rather provide a response stating tenant's position by certified mail with return receipt requested for your records.
Does this make sense?
That's what I thought but I wanted to be sure. I will respond by certified mail. It's just crazy to have me move from out of state, move in and then make these demands. Thank you.
