Lawyer: Loren, Lawyer replied 2 years ago

There is no notice required in the written lease? If that is the case, what is the notice for, that they say you have not given?

Customer reply replied 2 years ago
what is a rider
Lawyer: Loren, Lawyer replied 2 years ago

An exhibit to the contract containing additional terms which you sign and make a part of the contract.

Customer reply replied 2 years ago
DONT KNOW
Lawyer: Loren, Lawyer replied 2 years ago

Ok. If the notice is not contained in the lease or it is not something you signed to make it a part of the lease then they can not enforce it.

I JUST SIGNED MY LEASE WHICH WAS MARCH 31 2016 AND OTHER PAPERWORK
Lawyer: Loren, Lawyer replied 2 years ago

If you agreed to give notice (and signed the agreement to provide notice) then they can hold you to pay rent for the notice period, if it was missed or you did not use the agreed method to give notice.

However, they can not hold you prisoner in the apartment if you want to leave..

the Agency wants to talk to my lawyer what should I do
Lawyer: Loren, Lawyer replied 2 years ago

Tell your lawyer to call them.

Customer reply replied 2 years ago
I don't have one
Lawyer: Loren, Lawyer replied 2 years ago

If the notice requirement is not in the lease they are going to have a problem enforcing it.

Tell them you do not have an attorney and demand they show you where in your signed lease the obligation is created.

OK
