ur02111222 Posted October 8, 2011 Share Posted October 8, 2011 Hi everyone, I have a bit of a dilemma, and want to make sure I do not unintentionally do something illegal. I moved in with a friend during the summer. Her father is the landlord of the apartment. I never signed a lease. I never even spoke with him about living agreements-all contact to him was through the daughter. I pay a set amount each month that covers various bills. I'd like to move out due to difficulties with the daughter. She is not a very good roommate and has started trying to charge me for things that we agreed were to be included in the lump monthly sum. The apartment was not clean when I moved in. The landlord (her father) did not even provide me with a key-I was forced to make my own copy off of hers. Certain appliances were not working correctly and he has come to look at them, and declined to repair them since they are too expensive and not necessary. Yet I was under the impression these things were in working order when I moved and they were part of the reason I moved out of my studio apartment. I live in Kansas, and so far everything I've found makes it seem like it's okay for me to leave provided I give a 30-day written notice. I never made any verbal agreement with the landlord (her father) to stay for a full year. I've barely spoken to the man, except to say "hello" and that "this appliance doesn't work-can you fix it," which he's declined to do. Is there any legal step he could take against me were I to leave after only six months? Again, I have no lease, so I would be a "tenant at will," yes? And I made no verbal agreement with him. Nothing is in writing. So there is no way for him/her to claim I have a verbal lease even, correct? *confused* Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
