    If you had indeed signed the lease on the day you put a deposit down, then you'd have recourse under that agreement. However, there is technically no agreement in place to provide you a remedy for the time and money you lost getting your move together on April 1.

    Without knowing how long the lease was going to be for, arguably you might have an argument as you relied on the contract to be signed, but practically speaking, you'd be likely to only recover the cost of the move which may not be worth the time and money spent on a lawyer trying to recover that for you.

    The writing you have from your roommate stating that everything goes to you may be considered a valid Will if it has 2 witness signatures along with his own signature. You should really show it to an attorney to confirm this. If so, then, that may be sufficient for DMV to allow you to transfer title with a particular Affidavit for Transfer of Title for Estates Under $20,000.

    First and foremost, though, you should take that document in to an attorney for their review as to whether it could be deemed a valid Will.

  • Is a roommate required to give a thirty day notice even if their name is not on the lease in nevada

    their name is not on the lease. it is an apartment in las vegas nv

    Tina’s Answer

    If you are asking whether this roommate needs to give notice to the other roommates, the answer is "no" unless there is some sort of written agreement among roommates. Presuming there is not, then just as stated in the previous answer to your question, the answer is still "no" with regard to notice to the landlord simply because the lease only binds those who entered into the lease with the landlord.
