    Steven’s Answer

    For a tenant, stopping paying rent is never the way to address a problem. If the new guy is in fact the owner, you may be able to protect yourself if your agreement with him can be proven, which will probably require a writing. If the woman is still the owner, you can avoid eviction only by paying up. See a lawyer.

  • If I rent a property can I move someone in without informing my land lord and if I do and he finds out what can the penalties be

    I'm renting a property and a friend needs a place to live for about a month.

    Steven’s Answer

    Check your lease. Keeping that person more than a couple weeks is probably a breach of the lease. You can be evicted for breaching the lease.
