Well JP the law is the law then reality sets in......

Since the apartment is not regulated, most courts will side with the LL
on the premise:

Its his house not yours!

And fighting him might mean yes you might get to keep your apartment
but he will look for any reason to get rid of give you 30
days notice that he will raise the rent $500, which he can do on a month
to month lease.

And if he doesn't do that, do you think he will pay any money to fix the
apartment? what if the toilet pay roto rooter out of
your pocket then he will keep the security for the damages you did to
the floor...still ok

So here is reality sets in.....the best solution is to apologize to the
LL, and say we will move if you give us a letter of recommendation so we
can get another apartment.


: Help folks! This is long so bear with me.
: My husband signed a 6 month lease in October 1997. He moved out and left the status
: of the apartment up in the air. I went to the landlord (he lives in the house) and
: asked about the renewal. I was told that due to disagreements with my husband they
: were not renewing. I explained my situation and they agreed to let me stay in the
: apartment on a month to month lease. Stipulating that if I reunited with my husband
: I would have to leave. This was an oral agreement. Well as of July 1999 I reunited
: with my husband and the landlord found out and now has served me notice of terminating
: my tenancy. Here's the catch - my husband feels that since it was not in writing we
: should go by the original lease(which by the way that expired April 1998). The
: landlord gave us a 30 day notice and wants us to leave by August 31st. We are happy
: here and are not prepared to leave. My husband told the landlord that we are not leaving
: and he cannot let anyone see the apartment. He warned him that we would call the
: police. We've been good tenants - paid rent on time and everything. Please I need
: advice. Will he be able to evict us and how long will we have. I'm prepared to
: go to housing court.
: P.S. Should I pay the rent for September
