I leased a home here in Texas for a year and it was up 6 months ago and we agreed to lease month to month until we found a home for an additional $100 a month. She also changed the 30 day to 60 but I never signed anything agreeing to that. Am I on the hook for 60 days since I paid the $100 increase?
In general the question is not always whether you signed, but whether you AGREED/ACCEPTED. This agreement/acceptance can be shown in many ways. If the landlord provided you with the new terms and you continued to stay knowing those were the terms, then likely he can hold you to them.
It may be helpful to have a Tenant/Landlord attorney consult and review the evidence to see where this is likely to come out.
This is an areas that Dane O'Brien provides consultation and reasonably priced legal services in. Although Avvo makes it clear to consumers that attorney answers to questions are for general purposes only and do not establish an attorney-client relationship, some attorneys prefer to add their own disclaimers to answers. You can set your custom disclaimer here and it will be automatically added to your answers. Do NOT include any direct solicitations or contact information.
