: : Paperwork delayed the closing further and we asked our LL if we could extend for September. He said yes but
: : we would have to be out 5 days after the house closing even though we paid for the entire month. We signed an
: : agreement to such.
: : Out of the blue, 2 weeks later, he called up and asked for an extra months rent. He said that he may have a hard time renting
: : the place out the following month after we leave so he told us we have to pay an extra months rent in advance
: : and if he can't rent the place out the next month he keeps our money.
: : What are our rights? Do we have to pay rent when we aren't even living there?
: You have to re-read that last agreement very carefully: or take it to the lawyer who is handling the closing on your house and hve him/her read it.
: ps: you did not mention paying a security deposit in addition to the 'last month's rent': if you didn't, what is the risk of not paying this 'extra month'?
We did pay a security deposit. As for the risk of not paying, I just got served this morning and I have to be at court on Friday.
Do you think I'm gonna win or are they gonna evict me? How fast can they evict me. The house should close before the end of the month
so I wouldn't mind so bad if it takes like 30 days to evict us.
If we do get evicted for and we have 30 days to get out...do we have to pay rent for that month?
