I can however, provide you with a general answer, if you have a legal question for me?

Dear Customer,

Thank you for using our forum, my name is***** am another expert on the forum.

While we cannot provide formal legal advice, I believe that I can at least help you sort out what your rights are and potential resolutions are to this situation.

Just so that I ensure that we have a common understanding of your current situation, my understanding is that:

  • You are current on rent (you paid late, including a late fee, but your landlord accepted it).
  • Your landlord is threatening legal action (although he has not specified anything, nor has he noticed anything - you haven't received a "notice to quit" or anything like that)
  • You do not want to have to continue renting the property because you have already moved out of state (but you do have a few things left in the unit).

Is that correct?
