Hello! I am a licensed attorney, admitted to practice in state and federal court. I have a nearly 100% satisfaction rating (click here for more info) so all that means is that you can count on me to help today. The answer to your question is yes, generally. If there is a mistake to a common assumption in the agreement, then that can be reformed. If the dates are off in your agreement, then the lease is still valid as the law generally allows the parties to reform that part of the agreement to the terms that they had originally intended. So, for example, if the move out date is supposed to be 1/1/2018, but it says 1/1/2019, the agreement can be reformed if the parties intended for the move out to be 1/1/2018. What other questions did you have for me regarding this?

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.
