You can negotiate a rent amount acceptable to both but otherwise need to eventually vacate when court ordered. You cannot stay on without paying rent where the friend wants to end that arrangement.

i just need 30 days to get out to new place.. deal with owner or management company?
Lawyer: INFOLAWYER, Attorney replied 7 months ago

It takes longer to evict so you should be able to get that time on consent. I would speak to owner first and get an agreement to that effect

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

Not only did he answer my Michigan divorce question but was also able to help me out with it, too. I have since won my legal case on this matter and thank you so much for it.
