Verbal Lease Agreement Eviction

I am a GDL student (recently graduated) who recently left my apartment because of the rental (respect the 30-day deadline, etc.). This was based on a verbal periodic rental agreement that corresponded to the factors mentioned above in your article (offer, acceptance and consideration by the payment of the monthly rent). We are currently arguing (not in court, but only at odds) over the fact that he is now refusing to repay the $250 bond due to my parents, agreed upon my move last September (2014). I rented my basement to a guy on oral arrangement, later I discovered he was some kind of threat to my family, so I gave back his money and asked him to evacuate in a month. Am I doing the right thing? or am I faced with legal issues. As soon as a landlord allows a tenant access to the property and accepts the payment of the rent, an oral contract is concluded. So all this, “get out of my property with 3 days” mist will not fly, or at least it is not legally applicable. Discrimination and retaliation are available regardless of the owner`s reason for the eviction. Discrimination means that a landlord treats a tenant differently because of things such as race, disability or religion.

While most people have a written lease, this is not always the case. Sometimes owners use more informal methods, such as.B. an oral agreement.

You can also hire a lawyer to represent you in the apartment court if your landlord harasses you or threatens to pay the costs. It is a complex subject, especially if you have an oral agreement, and having a lawyer by your side is an advantage.

A tenant without a tenancy agreement is called an “at-will tenant.” [1] X Research Source This type of tenant has few legal protections, and landlords can distribute if they follow state-established procedures.
