Ask a landlord-tenant lawyer and get answers ASAP
HelloThis is Samuel. So in the Lease which is now converted to month to month are there other provisions in there such as what the Landlord's responsibilities are? For instance, does it say LL will pay for lawn service or anything like that?
Or is the only Inclusion in the lease concerning the sharing of the pool expenses? Also has the due date changed or anything?
Here is why I ask a tenant who remains in a rental property after the initial lease expires is considered to be a month-to-month tenant BUT all of the provisions of the lease still apply, except that the rental agreement is automatically renewed on a monthly basis. Tenants are bound by the terms of the original lease and should refer to that lease for any notices to vacate or any other issues.
Ok. And so you are still under the provisions of the lease. The only difference now is you can terminate with 30 days notice and so can the LL. Nothing else changes.
You are in violation and breach of the lease otherwise, unfortunately.
She cannot evict you for not paying the pool repairs. But you are in breach. She can only evict you for not paying your rent. And she has to accept the rent check. So if you try to give it to her, have someone there to witness that. That way you have a witness to show that you tried to pay the rent.
Paying her the repair of the pool is a civil suit. Because it is in the lease - so she cannot evict you for that but she can sue you for the breach.
You're welcome. Thanking you in advance for a positive rating.
