Hello. My name is Alex.Thank you for your question.I will be happy to provide you with information you are seeking for educational purposes only.
How long did you rent for?
Did your lease contain any terms for renewal or renewal options?
Thank you for your follow up.
Do you have a written extension of the lease?
Generally text messages would not constitute valid written agreement.
Also, unfortunately, generally, elderly tenant would not be subject to any special treatment when it comes to leases / evictions and would not be entitled to the lease extension, unless the landlord agrees to grant an extension.
I do not offer any phone calls, so if the JustAnswer.com offered an automatic phone call, please disregard.
Unfortunately, when it comes to written leases for the duration of time, such as annual leases, the landlord is not required to provide a written non-renewal notice and if the tenant does not vacate premises upon the expiration of the written lease, then the landlord will be able to file for an eviction in the local court, which can generally take anywhere between 30-60 days to be completed, however having an eviction in the public records, is never a good idea for the tenant, as such eviction record could make it very difficult for the tenant to rent another property.
I am very sorry to provide you with this bad news, but please understand that I do have professional obligation to provide JustAnswer.com customers with correct answers, even when answer is not favorable to the customer.
I wish you the best of luck and God bless you!
