I can't afford to pay my rent and unexpectedly have to move. I thought that's what a lease was suppose to protect you from?
Real Estate Lawyer: Barrister, Lawyer replied 21 days ago

Ok, first...they can't legally terminate the lease. You are correct that it is a legally binding document that either party can enforce.

.

But you have to pay the rent.

.

If they gave you a notice to terminate, your recourse is to check with someone, like an attorney, (or JA) to see if they can do so, which they can't..

.

But when you stopped paying rent, that gives them the right to legally terminate your tenancy with a 3 day pay or vacate notice and then evict through the courts..

.

If you had paid the rent, there is nothing they could have done to end your lease... any new owner would just have become the landlord.

.

So when you go to court, you can try to explain to the judge that you felt you were justified in not paying rent to save up for the move..

.

But even if they did have the right to terminate, you still would have to pay rent for that 60 days.... so I hate to say it, but you are legally in the wrong here..

.

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...

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.
