lease (by MARLENE [WI]) Posted on: Feb 19, 2021 11:18 AM
Message:

My friend had to get an attorney to evict some renters. Her judge gave the eviction, but no back rent because she didn't have a written lease with them. Her attorney, after looking at her written lease (she does have one, just didn't give it to these people)said that she should redo AND have them sign a new lease EVERY YEAR. the attorney said that way you can make changes if you want. But, if your lease is a year and after a year is up, is month to month, isn't that better? you can still make changes if you give renter 30 days. Also, is it legal to put in the lease that the renter is responsible for all electric charges and if they move out before April 15th, they lose all of their damage deposit? --184.100.xx.xx

I do not know what the laws are in the state that your friend is in, but the judge's position that there is no right to back rent because there is no written lease sounds absurd to me.

I do not prepare a new lease every year. I often do an extension/renewal document that recites that the lease dated ________ is extended through _________, that the rent shall increase to $____ per month effective _______, and that there are no further changes [or reciting the other changes].

If I were to make changes in my basic lease, I might require all of the properties to switch to the new lease upon termination of the old lease. It is administratively cleaner to have everyone on the same basic lease.

"is it legal to put in the lease that *** if they move out before April 15th, they lose all of their damage deposit?" It would not be enforceable under the laws I know. That would be considered a forfeiture. You can only claim the actual damages from the security deposit, under the laws I know. Your Mileage May Vary.

I agree with Mike45 above me, paper resource reduction - the guvmnt uses this often. --76.188.xxx.xxx
