I have a problem with a person that I used to subrent an
I have a problem with a person that I used to subrent an apartment for short periods in the last 4 years, He is a german guy and lived for 1 or 2 months paying 120$ per day. Last October 2016 he stayed until April 5th and he didn't pay the last 2 months. He left the apartment and left a set of keys keeping with him a second one (he wrote me that he would have sent the socond set of keys). I had to change the lock. After three months he realized that i had to evict him and reclaimed residency. He came with the police that forced me to give him the keys and he started to live there again without paying the rent. I sent a 3 days notice and he was served with the summons. The agreement is oral and i have a text message from him asking me if he could pay 120$ pe rnight. He answer to my summons saying that I have to ask only what I pay to my landlord. I asked the housing rent control office and they told me that since the building is not under rent control I can ask any price more than what I pay to my landlord. Can you help me ? I would like to have a clear vision about this very unfortunate situation. Pratically I'm paying the rent for this person !!! He reclaims also that he had medical expenses. Is it better to go to trial or just send him a 30 days notice to vacate and end the oral agreement? Tahnk you so much … read more
