Verbal Rental Agreements

Although an oral tenancy agreement is not particularly safe or intelligent for landlords or tenants, it is important to understand that it is still a legally binding contract and that tenants and landlords or legal protection rights are still in place. 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. Whether an oral lease is legally binding depends on the terms of the contract. If a tenant rents a property for a year or less, a verbal agreement (and all agreed conditions) is legally binding. However, if a tenant rents for more than one year, the oral contract is not recognized and must be recorded in writing to be legally binding. In 2005, my mother and father were both in Father`s Health and in some debts, so my sister approached them and led my mother and father to sign at home and say they could lose property there! My sister had a lawyer to do the paper work while saying that my mother and father received 150,000 dollars for the witch house they never received (I made all the paper to show this) my parents tried to get the house back without success, my sister has now put the house in her husband`s name, unfortunately my mother and dad paid the mortgage on the account To live there again , I have all the payment records on paper, unfortunately my mother died a little over a year ago and my father is very sick and still pays every month for the maintenance of the house and the mortgage! He has no lease, and my sister is waiting for him to die! To do anything with the property! I`ve been taking care of my parents all these years and I can`t sit down. The doctor supported the story and will say that my mother was not fit for signing anything at the time of the illness, etc. I wonder if there is anything we could do to get things in order, because that is a mistake for me. Should my father stop paying the mortgage? My sister and husband haven`t been home for over 10 years! You may have heard that a contract involving real estate or a rental house, apartment or condo must be written, or that a court will not enforce it. That`s true in most cases.

A contract for the purchase or sale of a house, condominium or cooperation unit, if it is only a «handshake,» does not mean anything at all, unless the agreement is signed on paper by both parties. However, a lease of no more than one year is an exception to this rule. So that means you can actually have an oral lease that a court will apply, and the agreement can be either month-to-month or for an entire year. I`m legally married. My wife left our apartment two months ago when we separated. she took all her property and entitled him to rental property. Two months later, she`s trying to get me deported. The landlord accepted the lease knowingly with only 1 signature (she). as I was at a meeting.

but the owner has always had a complete knowledge of me and my family who live here. she asks that I be deported so that she can live here. If you are considering an argument or are trying to reach a verbal agreement with your tenant or landlord, you can get help from your nearest citizen council. The best is the good old written lease.
