The fact that a landlord or tenant does not have a written tenancy agreement does not affect any of their legal rights. Both parties are still protected by law or by law. I currently live in an apartment with a roommate and the owner who owned the apartment has been arrested and has not paid his mortgage or HIS HOA fees for some time. He had made a verbal agreement with myself that I would not have to pay rent as long as I went to school and maintained the place. This has happened. Now that he has been arrested, he must serve time in prison, he has decided to get rid of the place that leaves me and the roommate, to leave the property. He sent us a seven-day notice of dismissal or pay. And we received a letter in the mail saying that the HOA had initiated the seizure process. The owner passed a real estate agent and told us that he was selling the property that we need to leave as soon as possible.

That doesn`t seem fair, and all we`ve had is an oral contract, never written anything. What can we do and there is everything that allows us to stay in the apartment until we have time to find another place. The refund amount is more than $8,000. Apparently, he hasn`t paid it since January and he just told us in September. Can someone help me? I rented my basement to a guy on oral arrangement, later I discovered he was some kind of threat to my family, so I gave back his money and asked him to evacuate in a month. Am I doing the right thing? or am I faced with legal issues. Each party, both owner and tenant, is required to make notice of termination of a contract, even if no lease is entered into. If the rent is regularly charged monthly, advance notice, which requires either landlords or tenants to terminate the oral contract, is sufficient in most countries between 20 and 30 days. Tenants can terminate the lease without long-term termination if the rules of tacit guarantee of habitability are broken and the rental unit is not suitable for the people in whom they can live. I`m moving into an apartment a year ago this month.

6 months in I could not afford rent, so I went to my fellow and explained that I would leave, but if it was possible, he asked me if I was doing a carpentry job and said, yes, he sat me working on one of his property, since we got a verbal agreement (I never signed anything , not even when I moved in) that I did $500 worth of rental work. It worked very well, I`m doing the job he`s asking me to do to thank me for helping me do things that he doesn`t ask me to do, but I know I have to do. It gets well over $500 rental fee, but the deal was that I wasn`t working in cash for rent, so I keep working. A few months ago he had an operation of a blow stuck in his stretcher witch made him sick, which was all said, took on me twice already, telling me to do my business a move and then turn around an hour or so later an excuse tells me I can stay . So today is the tired time to do it, he tells me that he doesn`t have enough work from me for rent and that most normal jobs work 40 hours a week if I work only 4 to 6 hours a day 3 or 4 days a week, but they add up hours a day quickly and the work I do would cost him so much more than the $500 my apartment each month. I think what I ask is what to do against threats to expose myself?? If it exists, I can`t help but be thrown into the street after working so hard to live here. Please contact me with any thoughts, suggestions of facts that may refer to the underlying issue here.. Thank you in advance for all your time remark about this. It`s a great day. Tenants who have the permission of their landlords, but who do not have leases, generally have a lease as they see fit. These leases are sometimes referred to as “month-to-month” or “at will” as there is no formal contract for the duration of the rental period.
