What is the usual and customary way to handle this. We landlords are obligated to find housing for them? or pay for a month (or more) stay in a hotel? or task them with finding their own temp housing until the problem is resovlved?
Thank you, Joel
Assume an annual lease that has already turned to a MTM lease. It's over a year old. One roommate wants to leave. Maybe a divorce, maybe a breakup, maybe one want to have a different place. It doesn't really matter.
The roommate that is leaving gives a notice as required by the lease, on a MTM lease. The remaining one does not want to move. Assume that the remaining roommate can afford the rent.
Is the lease terminated by the one roommate? Or does it take all roommates to terminate it?
If it takes all roommates, how long is that one roommate that left responsible for the rent? Can the existing roommate can sue for any rent owed? For how long?
And what does "joint and severally" mean in regards to giving notice and paying rent?
They will be moving out in a few months and there is no incentive to clean the place before they leave.
Can I charge them another security deposit?
Also I did get an ESA factory letter from a licensed therapist but they are unwilling to confirm the letters that they produce. can someone put a protocol together that instructs landlords on how to confirm these ESA letters?
I consider the need to be clinical which would therefore require an ongoing assessment of the conditions.
And for instance they get a therapist ( an ESA letter factory ) to write that they see a need for a 6 month or more then that should be compared to other treatment and assessment standards for review.
She wrote letter this letter on January25th, shutoff electricity January29th. She said want her deposit back.What steps I need to follow for abandonment? Do I need to give her deposit back? Thank you
Also can I evict the first tenant for the spreading of bedbugs?
