Hello: This is Phillipsesq. Welcome to Justanswer! I will be further assisting you with your post.

Ask Your Own Landlord-Tenant Question

You need to ask your Landlord for the copies of ALL the documents that you signed. If your Landlord refuses to release the documents to you, you can use that as a reason for terminating the lease.

A positive rating to my response is appreciated so that I can receive credit for responding to your post. There is no additional cost to you for giving a positive rating.

Thank you for your cooperation.

Three H.Houston, TX

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.

TonyApopka, FL

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