well you are being shafted and you are stupid......
But you will learn from this experience NEVER NEVER NEVER lose any
lease or rider, and keep all your reciepts....even if you have to rent a
safe deposit box.
How about both of you taking a couple of days off from work and REALLY look for the lease....
You just might find it!
: Our landlord is renovating our building to create 2 full renovated apartments
: and we are currently living in half the space leased to us while the renovation
: occurs; we are the only occupants now. In verbal agreement, the new renovated
: space would be rented to us at the same rent, we did not sign an
: agreement (studpidly) and I think we're on month-to-month basis now b/c I can't
: find a copy of the current lease (we've been there for 3 years.) Now the contractor
: bid is higher than the landlord expected so now he is making it our problem by
: violating our agreement by telling us the rent will be higher. What rights do
: we have being on a month-to-month basis? Should put our rent in current in escrow?
: If so, how to? This really messy situation has been created, partially by
: not taking the proper steps ... what should we do NOW?
