I have been living in a house I love a little house in Cayce…

Customer Question
Hi... I have been...

Hi... I have been living in a house I love a little house in Cayce South Carolina beliefs was supposed to be given to me when I paid my rent on the 15th of this month there had been a pipe or something coming up in the floor and when I contacted my landlady she said she would send somebody over and she didn't so today she called me and said she was on her way over she wanted to look at the floor

Lawyer's Assistant: When we are ready I'll take you to the appropriate web page.

When I came in when she came in she had an envelope in her hand I figured it was my lease she looked at the floor and she told me that the house has had termite issues and that I had 30 days to vacate because she had to work down the home we've never had an ill word she's actually been quite nice but I was quite stunned and now I cannot find another place to live

Lawyer's Assistant: Because laws vary from place to place, can you tell me what state the property is in?

I really appreciate your help Pearl it's in Cayce South Carolina she actually let me stay here for a month for free because I had move down for Massachusetts over the Columbia South Carolina and I was living in a place where the landlady again didn't give me a lease and she has in fact kept my $850 the very first landlady upon hearing this because this rental was a referral she let me stay and get my things into this house and after decorating buying a washing machine and keeping the property in the utmost condition today I got this bad news

Lawyer's Assistant: What are the terms of the lease? Any issues related to maintenance or upkeep?

There has not been a lease and I got something today from her when she came in that says to whom it may concern recall and that word is underlined

Lawyer's Assistant: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?

When I was asking her if there was a way I could stay for an extra couple of weeks so I could find something she is giving me to the end of August even though my rent goes from the 15th to the 15th of the month

Thank you for your follow up.

Unfortunately, generally, if there is no written lease, then such tenant would be considered to have a month to month tenancy, which can be ended by the landlord at any time, but landlord providing tenant with a 30 day written month to month termination notice.

I am very sorry to provide you with this bad news, but please understand that I do have professional obligation to provide JustAnswer.com customers with correct answers, even when answer is not favorable to the customer.

I wish you the best of luck and good luck!

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.
