In Reply to: Landlord Remove Water Softener to use for Himself! posted by Mike on August 27, 2001 at 09:39:53:
If you have NO LEASE,(month to month) then the landlord can change the terms with a 30 day notice, WITH a lease you can demand the landlord pay for it or terminate the lease because the landlord broke it.
Send a registered leter return reciept, giving the landlord 5 days to replace the water softener or you will deduct the $48 plus $12 a month from the rent each month till your lease ends.
The landlord CANNOT change the lease terms ...PERIOD!
: I live in Florida and lease a house. The landlord lives next to me in
: another house. One day last week, someone came and took the water
: softener off the well pump. In Florida, no one drinks or uses
: well-water straight.
: We asked about it and they said it was old and they were going to
: buy 2 new ones, one for their house and one for ours.
: We have been without decent drinking water for a week. The Real Estate Rental Agent states we need to pay $48 plus $12 more a month
: for a new water softener. We found out that the landlords softener
: broke, he took our's to use and now he wants us to pay for a new one
: on our house. Is this legal?
