In Reply to: mngmt threatening to tear up new lease bec of questions we asked posted by PLK on June 12, 2000 at 12:13:45:
: We just signed a lease that begins on July 1 (a Saturday this year). But management is being inflexible on this policy, refuses to start kease on the next weekday, and says there is no move-in policy on the weekends, thus we lose out on 2 days we pay for and run into the long holiday weekend.
What does your lease say about this? Mine says I still owe the rent even if I can't move in on time and it's their fault. What does the super say about moving in?
: But it gets better---
: They now also informed us that the current tenant has the right to remain in the apartment until June 30, so we can't move in on the Friday night before.
What did the current tenant say about her moving out plans? Is she still there? I once moved in at midnight... Worse picture: does she have plans to move out? she could be there for months...
When we asked how they plan to do all the work the promised to (painting, polishing etc.) before we take occupancy on the following day, they threatened to tear up the lease if we continued to ask "legal and technical questions" and kept them on the line any longer.
Promise in writing? your lease probably says you take it 'as is'. (you knew the apartment was occupied, when did you think they would do the repairs?) Photograph and/or video tape every inch before you move a single box in...
Is there a clause in your lease that allows them to cancel the lease? What does your research on Tenant.Net on the laws in whatever city/state this apartment is in say about this?
