Thank you so very much. It seems like common sense that if the previous lease had expired, it is no longer valid. I will pass along this information to my daughter. You have been extremely helpful. All the information is good to know!
I have another question regarding a rent increase by the landlord after my daughter moved. Do I have to re-ask or am I able to continue with you?
Thanks so much for the positive rating and generous bonus, it is very much appreciated!
It was my pleasure to work with you and help with your question. Please feel free to ask for me if you need help with anything in the future and I will do everything I can to help or get you to someone who can.
The website allowed me to ask another question. Did you receive it? I am a little confused by this site.
Okey, dokey. Thanks! The landlord raised the rent after my daughter moved. There was no notice given to my daughter, just an ad in the paper and on Zillow. Yes, daughter did break the lease on her end. This area of CA is very economically depressed and $950.00 per month is going to be very hard to manage for anyone here. If the landlord is asking a higher rent which will cause the house to be vacant for a longer than normal period of time (not able to rent because of high rent), does this break the lease on the landlord's end?
We were not sure but sounds like what we thought. Thank you so much for your time and help. This has turned into a huge mess that apparently, should not have happened.
