Hello. I’m a family lawyer and appellate attorney with 36 years’ experience and also have extensive experience with landlord-tenant issues, contract law, and other types of law. I look forward to helping you today.
Please note:This is general information for educational purposes and is not legal advice. No specific course of action is proposed herein, and no attorney-client relationship or privilege is formed by speaking to an attorney on this site.
At the end of this discussion I'm going to ask you to please rate me as that's the only way I get credit for my time here today. Are you okay with rating me at the end of this session?
What would you like me to review? Is this for a business, because you mention your shop? It is difficult to have a month-to-month lease for a business because that creates a very unstable situation for you and your business.
Thank you for that information. How long has your store been at this location?
I can look at the lease if you'd like.
Also, I'd like to know if there is anything in the lease that says he will make the repairs, fix the AC and the roof. Certain statements that are made orally generally cannot be used to change the meaning of a written contract. That means that generally speaking, including in CA, what is written will govern. So it depends on what is written in the lease, and if the oral terms contradict the written terms, the written terms will govern.
No problem. I will be here after 6 PT today. I just happen to be here now. Thanks.
I'm available if you are here. Thanks.
You can check back with me tomorrow if you'd like. I'm here for a few more minutes but then I'll be logging off. If you need someone to look at the lease right away I will opt out. It's up to you but I am usually here every day. Thanks!
Hello, and welcome. I am a licensed attorney and, since the prior attorney assisting you opted out of the question, I'll be happy to assist.
Please upload a copy of the proposed lease to this post using the paperclip icon at the top of your typing box. I will be happy to take a look. In doing so, you should redact your personal information by blocking it out with a marker to keep it confidential.
I'll keep an eye out for the contract.
