Ask a Lawyer and Get Answers to Your Legal Questions
Hello. My name is Alex.Thank you for your question.I will be happy to provide you with information you are seeking for educational purposes only.
Do you have a written lease or some other written legal document which entitles you to the rental of the unit at set rent amount?
Thank you for your follow up.
So the lease was not signed by the landlord or management company?
While I cannot comment on your specific situation, unfortunately, generally, any verbal promises / agreements related to residential rentals for longer than 1 year, would not be legally valid or legally enforceable, so unless there is some type of written lease agreement signed by the landlord or landlord's agent, I am afraid there would not be any type of legal recourse under similar circumstances and the tenant / former employee would have to try to negotiate some type of a written lease agreement or move out upon the expiration of the 30 day notice.
