  • Can my landlord terminate my lease and put me on a month to month basis because they want to sell the house

    we have lived in the house for two and a half years

    Nikhilkumar’s Answer

    It depends on the lease agreement that they terminated. Did they follow the right procedures that are spelled out in that lease. I suggest you take your copy of the lease to a landlord tenant attorney and they will spell out your options. Good luck!

    You need to contact an attorney in Tennessee to try and see if they are following proper protocol per Tennessee law. Every state will honor holds and suspensions from other states. So you have to resolve this issue in Tennessee and will need an attorney versed in their laws. Good luck!

    Nikhilkumar’s Answer

    Seek a consult with a landlord tenant attorney in your area. Take your lease, and explain the issues. They will be able to explain your options, and the best way to move forward depending on your goals. As far as your question, NO you can't withhold rent for these issues. You must go by the process explained in your lease. You will probably have to pay for your consult, but its better to have an exact answer, based on your actual circumstances. Good luck!

    Nikhilkumar’s Answer

    What does your rental agreement say in regards to pets? I suggest you take your lease agreement to a landlord tenant attorney if in fact you have to defend yourself against an eviction. Based on a more thorough analysis, the attorney will be able to tell you more about all of your options. Good luck!

    Nikhilkumar’s Answer

    Speak to a criminal defense attorney right away. They will be able to look up any charges and create a plan of action for you. You may also be able to look it up on the county clerk of court website. Do not speak to the police without an attorney. If you can't afford one, speak to your county's local bar association and see if they have a legal aid clinic. Good luck.

    Nikhilkumar’s Answer

    You need to speak to a landlord/tenant attorney or a foreclosure defense attorney. Generally speaking only homeowners and bona fide tenants (valid current lease) have standing to appear in a foreclosure case. Speak to an attorney immediately. I am also re-categorizing this question as a foreclosure matter so that you get more responses.
