Hi - my name is ***** ***** I'll be glad to assist.
The realtor should not have authority to change the terms of the lease UNLESS the owner has given the realtor such a right. So, you'd need to look at the contract between the owner and realtor to now what rights and abilities the realtor has.
As for the repair items, who chooses the repairman usually depends on who is paying for the work. But, again, it'd be a matter of contract......so whatever the agreement says is going to govern.
Thanks for the response.
Contracts can be amended or changed any time IF both parties to the contract/lease agree. But, agreements can't be unilaterally changed by one party alone -- it takes mutual consent. The only exception is if the lease gives one party this right.
I understood your question to be whether the realtor had the right to take action on behalf of the owner ---- not whether the relator could make unilateral changes to the executed lease.
Sorry for any misunderstanding on my part, but I hope the response above addresses what you were asking about.
So, the fully executed lease can't be changed by the realtor/owner unilaterally UNLESS the lease allows the realtor/owner to do so. Instead, any change would have to be by mutual agreement between the realtor and the tenant.
Please let me know if you have any additional questions. Thanks!
I'll be glad to opt out and allow another lawyer to assist. Please stand by and another attorney will respond if they have more to add. Thanks and good luck.
