NYC apartment – Lease Renewal Contract. Lease term ended and the landlord asked if I wanted to renew my lease at a higher rate. Via email, I stated that I did want to renew and asked that landlord to send the new lease contract. The lease contract was mailed to me; however I never signed it nor did the Landlord. (Note: the lease contract states, “This agreement shall not become effective until it is executed by Landlord, and Tenant is provided with a fully executed copy.”). I have begun paying the agreed upon rate (for 2 months) however, there is still not an executed lease agreement. Am I bound by this unexecuted lease?

My girlfriend an I just finished purchasing a house from her mother. Her brother was also living in the house, and still is after the sale. I want to serve him the correct papers to cover ourselves in case we need to follow the legal process to evict him, but I am not certain what we need to start with. There has never been a written lease that was signed, but he paid rent and utilities to his mother before the sale.

This is a case under California law. Can a landlord impose a

This is a case under California law. Can a landlord impose a "tenant at will" designation upon someone who is occupying a commercial rental property (he was there before the landlord bought the property from the owner but there is no extant tenancy agreement) for the purpose of creating a tenancy that suffices to bring an action for eviction under the unlawful detainer statutes (CCP 789, 1161). CCP 1166 and case law require that there be a landlord-tenant relationship to bring the eviction under the unlawful detainer statute.That is, can a property owner elect to implicitly consent (as a matter of law) to someone who is occupying the property to be a tenant? Can a tenant who, knowing that the property is a commercial property, by their remaining on the property which they know is not theirs implicitly consent (as a matter of law) to being a tenant? Is this a form of tenancy at will?A reference to case or statutory authority would be needed in the answer.

My sister and I inherited a personal residence in Ohio from

My sister and I inherited a personal residence in Ohio from our Father. Our Aunt (Age 80) signed an informal contract 1986 which allowed her to live there until she chooses to leave or dies. Her Adult son has lived with her off and on all these years. The agreement was for her to pay a rental amount to cover taxes and insurance. She has a stroke a few years ago, he has taken advantage of the situation for many years and is now writing her checks for the rent, which bounced in Feb. 2016, we wish to sell this home at the end of this year and are having a difficult time with making him understand that this must happen. Our families have our own bills to deal with and it is time. Our Aunt is not aware of all that has happened, disrepair, etc., Should we proceed with contacting a Layer or real estate agent. Her Son can be very difficult as he is convinced he should just get this home. We have sent a certified letter to alert them they have 6 months to get out. It has been a week and I believe he will not even sign for the letter. Thanks for advice
