Customer Question

At the end of my lease my landlord is raising my rent by $400.00. If I find an apartment to move into before then is the high rent increase a reason to be able to break my lease
JA: Because laws vary from place to place, can you tell me what state the property is in?
Customer: Texas
JA: Have you talked to a lawyer yet?
Customer: No
JA: Anything else you think the lawyer should know?
Customer: The apartment will be remolded later on. That is why the rent is going up but the rent will go up as soon as you sign the new lease.

I noticed you charged my credit card for $29.00. I did not ok any charge but $5.00. I do not want this site. I do not want my credit card charged with any amount. I do not want an answer to my question. Please don't let this be another scam

I am not an employee of JA, just a lawyer answering legal questions. If you have questions about charges you can click the customer care button and ask them to address your concerns regarding the charges.

Did you still want your question answered?
