Ask a Lawyer and Get Answers to Your Legal Questions
Good afternoon,I'm Doug, and I'm very sorry to hear of your son's situation. My goal is to provide you with excellent service today. I am a GA licensed attorney.
While it is not illegal for a landlord to contract to collect a full month's rent for only a partial month is it not normal. However, if that is the contract that your son and wife signed, then it will be enforceable. However, if he is paying for the entire month, then he may legally demand the keys to the unit on the first of the month and begin to move his things in and make use of the unit.
I understand that you may be disappointed by the Answer you received, as it was not particularly favorable to your situation. Had I been able to provide an Answer which might have given you a successful legal outcome, it would have been my pleasure to do so.If you have additional questions, you may of course reply back to me and I will be happy to continue to assist you further until your questions have been answered to your satisfaction.Would you please take a moment to positively rate my service to you based on the understanding of the law I provided by clicking on the rating stars---three stars or more. It is that easy. That is the way I am compensated for having helped you.Thank you in advance. I wish you the best in your future,Doug
