Anyone familiar with Real Estate law? I have a lease question.

    So here is the deal in short: I have been renting in the same place for about 2 years now. However for the last 4 months there hasn't been a current lease. I have just been continuing to pay rent, the management company has continued to cash the checks and I have continued to live there no questions asked.

    Now here lies the problem: I have been told by my neighbor that the landlord has been showing my apartment to people while I am at work. He has never once said anything to me about a new lease or about packing up and moving out.

    My question is: does he have the right to just boot my ass out of there whenever he wants? I know FMV to rent my crib is way lower than what I am paying so if he can find a tenant willing to pay more I am sure he'd love to have the increased revenue. I think I should first be afforded the opportunity to stay even if it means an increase in rent. Or if he just wants me out for whatever reason I should be provided ample notice.

    Am I wrong?

    Dude. They can't enter your premises without a written 24 hour notice.

    You could get a 3 day eviction, but that would be if you slaughtered the whole neighborhood. Typical would be a 30 day notice.

    But if they are going in your place without your consent, you should be seriously pissed off, and look further into that matter. Nigga could be gettin' paid.

    depends on your state law as to the time frame he has to give you notice, but ya, he can rent to anyone he wants becuase you have no lease. he probably has to notify you about showing also, for privacy reasons, check your old lease fine print for details.

    Thank you for the honest help. :hat:

    I am gonna do the manly thing and confront him about entering my place without permission and then force him to give me a 2 year lease at a REDUCED that ONLY I can break early.


    Just kidding, I am pretty sure he has ties to the Israeli mafia so I am going to politely ask to stay for whatever rate he deems fair. :scared:

    Sux man. I knew it had the potential to vary state-to-state, but I'm pretty sure every state I've lived in was 30 days.

    I would break some fucking legs if I found out someone was in my crib while I wasn't there.

    Shit would be getting fucked up.

    The scenario posed was Florida law without a lease.
