Ask a lawyer and get answers to your legal questions
Hello and welcome! My name is ***** ***** I am a licensed attorney and will try my best to help with your situation. There may be a slight delay in my responses as I type out an answer or reply.
I have read your comments, but I am not sure what your legal question is?
Unfortunately, a lease can only be extended once it expires if both the landlord and tenant agree to do so.. One party can't force the other to continue on with the tenancy.
So in the same way they couldn't force you to stay if you wanted to leave, you can't force them to rent to you longer if they don't want to.
With that said, your only recourse here is to contact them in writing and let them know you would like to renew and would ask that they reconsider renewing the lease.
I am very sorry that I don’t have better news, but please understand that I do have an ethical and professional obligation to provide customers with legally correct answers based on my knowledge and experience, even when I know the answer doesn’t make the customer happy...
You are very welcome. Happy to help any time, even though the news was kind of lousy..
It was my pleasure to work with you and help with your question. If you ever need me in the future, you can post a new question with "For Barrister" in the title and the JustAnswer employees will get it to me.
