the short answer is no...the long answer is maybe

Assuming that there is a current lease, when does it expire?

Customer reply replied 4 months ago
it was a month too month lease
Lawyer: Michael Bradley, Lawyer replied 4 months ago

then the landlord can properly terminate the lease and in essence can charge whatever they want

as long as they are following the terms of the lease they can charge what the market is willing to pay

you can talk to landlord to see if a compromise can be made regarding the rent

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.
