I have a tenant whose lease expired 3 yrs ago and since then

I have a tenant whose lease expired 3 yrs ago and since then has been living at my building on a month to month tenancy, without any written agreement. He has given notice to vacate the apartment, indicating that his new rental starts on July 1. He would like to live at the apartment until about July 15, moving "at his leisure". I intend to send him a certified letter stating that I need the apartment vacated to renovate for new tenant no later than July 5. I will charge for those 5 days on a per diem basis. What are the landlord's right to get the tenant to move ? I believe I can give him 30 days notice to quit the property by a certain date under New Jersey law.JA: Because laws vary from place to place, can you tell me what state the property is in?Customer: New JerseyJA: Has any paperwork been filed?Customer: None, and I would like to avoid all legal proceedings, since this is just a question of him moving 10 days earlier than he wants. I am being more than generous in offering him 5 extra days to move, however, I will suffer financial losses if I don't get the apt on the market as soon as possible. He already has a rental waiting for him.JA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: That his month to month tenancy ends at the end of the month. Therefore, if his new lease starts on July 1, my agreement with him should terminate on June 30. Normally people then move.

I recently ended my tenancy in a Colorado rental house and

Hello-I recently ended my tenancy in a Colorado rental house and the landlord is going to take approximately $800 out of my security deposit because she claims that when we took possession of the rental back in August, there were two electronic perimeter dog collars to go with the "invisible" fence system she had built in to the property. On our initial walk through of the house, we were never shown the dog collars, nor did we know of their existence EVER during our 9-month tenancy. Unfortunately, when we signed the lease while we were living in California, before we moved to Castle Rock, Colorado, we did not take into account that the landlord had included two perimeter dog collars in the lease language. But, we were in California and unable to see whether the property we were about to rent in Castle Rock, Colorado did in fact come with two electronic dog collars. My question is, does the landlord have legal standing to charge us for something in our security deposit when there is no proof that the item at issue even existed during our tenancy? We have no walk-thru punch list for our initial inspection of the property, we signed nothing that says we took possession of the dog collars and we were uniformed verbally of the existence of the dog collars. Secondly, the landlord does not appear to have an accurate invoice proving that the dog collars are worth $800. What the landlord does have is a monetary amount that was given to her over the phone for the products (dog collars) she deemed comparable to the ones that are now non-existant. Do I have a legal remedy? I was never verbally informed of, nor shown the dog collars upon the initiation of tenancy in the house, the dog collars were never seen during our tenancy and the landlord does not have the original invoice for the dog collars proving that they are worth $800. Help! Thank you.

I am the landlord & have a periodic tenancy agreement with

I am the landlord & have a periodic tenancy agreement with my tenant.My tenant has paid 2 months rent but never even stayed over nite,,,as their house is being listed for sale. In that 2 months they have moved a lot of small household & personal items but thats about it. I had a realtor approach me about selling my house last week and they offered me a really great price to sell and even offered a really low commission rate to the realtor. I tried to get the new owners to keep the tenants but they don't want any part of that so I must inform my tenants that the house is sold and they will have to be out of the house before closing. Closing is Sept 26th so it is over 4 months from now. The other reason I sold my house was fear of loosing my job as the company I work for is re-structuring and as such I will most likely get let go & without an income coming in it would have been too hard to keep the house and me afloat. The tenant is disappointed and has come back to tell me that I can't sell my house as I have to honour the lease agreement. Surly that is enough time for them to find something else,,,plus I have told them they don't have to pay anymore rent provided they leave within the next 30 days and as there older I even offered to move their things up from the basement apt and even rent a van for them to use to take their things back.Can I sell my house and give them 4 months written notice? Do I need to refund them the 2 months rent they already paid me? As my deal to sell is already firmed up,,,could i have any issues closing if they make a fuss and or refuse to move out?

I have a tenant under a 1 year lease agreement that she paid

Hi, I have a tenant under a 1 year lease agreement that she paid in full and in advance. She contacted me over a month ago stating that she was moving out on May 15 because she bought a new home and that we can start showing the house. We've put the house on sale and found a buyer, only now the tenant is refusing to move out unless I pay her back 2 months of rent which I refused because this is simply blackmail. I want to have her evicted but this will take several months and the lease originally ends on July 31. What are my legal options?JA: Because real estate law varies from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?Customer: texasJA: Has any paperwork been filed?Customer: what do you mean by paperworkJA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: no
