Customer Question
We extended a lease agreement...
We extended a lease agreement to our tenant. We have not signed it and wish to rescind the offer. The tenant has signed it. Is the lease enforceable, even though we said we "accept your offer" but did not put our signatures on the lease.

Anne was extremely helpful. Her information put me in the right direction for action that kept me legal, possible saving me a ton of money in the future. Thank you again, Anne!!

ElaineAtlanta, GA

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.

Wonderful service, prompt, efficient, and accurate. Couldn't have asked for more. I cannot thank you enough for your help.
