I currently live with my wife and two young children in a small cottage we've been renting,where we pay 900 per mo plus all util,on a month to month,he now informed us he is going to New Zealand,and gave us an ultimatum,that we either need to leave by July 12th,or extend to when he returns in 9 months.
When i informed him we would stay until Sept 1st,he said no,because he wanted to interview new tenants and wouldnt be here.
His story changed,when he didn't like that we were upset with his forcing us into this,and there have been rats,mice,in the house,which he got an exterminator,but the rodents returned.
I asked him to fix the outside where there are all sorts of holes,he said in July he will meet a contractor.
tHEN JUST TWO DAYS AGO,HE SAID IF WE WANT TO STAY FOR TWO MONTHS OVER SUMMER,OUR RENT WILL BE DOUBLE,HE CALLS THAT SUMMER RATES.
I FEEL HE IS RETALIATING AGAINST US,AND HE IS DEMANDING WE SIGN THIS LEASE
BY sATURDAY WITH DOUBLE THE RENT,OR VACATE BY JULY 12TH,WHAT ARE OUR RIGHTS,AND WHAT DO YOU SUGGEST WE CAN DO?
