Ask a Lawyer and Get Answers to Your Legal Questions
Hello and welcome! My name is ***** ***** I am a licensed attorney who will try my very best to help with your situation or get you to someone who can. There may be a slight delay in my responses as I research statutes or ordinances and type out an answer or reply,but rest assured, I am working on your question.
Can you give me a little more detail about what is going on here?
I am not sure what you mean about the 60 day notice...
Are you asking if it has to be served by a sheriff or process server?
Or whether it will legally terminate a tenancy?
If you can give me a few more details about the back story, I will try to help..
Have they shown you the math to prove that the agent made a clerical or mathematical mistake when the leasing agent wrote the amount on the notice?
Does your written lease back up the amount that they are claiming you owe?
Ok, then unfortunately, the lease will control over the 60 day notice under the legal doctrine of "mistake". When someone makes a mistake in calculations on a document, then they are legally entitled to correct that mistake and the other party doesn't have the legal right to take advantage of the clerical mistake.
I am very sorry that I don’t have better news, but please understand that I do have an ethical and professional obligation to provide customers with legally correct answers based on my knowledge and experience, even when I know the answer doesn’t make the customer happy...
You are very welcome. Glad to help even though the news is kind of lousy..
If you feel your original question and any related follow ups have been answered, I would very much appreciate a positive rating on the answer I have provided so I receive credit for my work. If you have a new question the JustAnswer folks require that you start a new question page, but you can request me by putting "For Barrister" in the caption and they will get it to me.
Did you have any further questions that I can help with?
