Landlord and Tenant Rights and Responsibilities

questions & answers

Question: My landlord wants to prorate my end of lease for an additional 3 days. I turned in my 60 notice well before my 60 days was even near. I sent numerous emails regarding my 60 day notice and never heard any response and she is claiming she never received them even though I sent her proof of every email I sent her. I have been courteous and have paid the rent every month and have never been late. What are my rights as a tenant to to make sure I'm not overcharged on the proration?

Answer: If a tenant complies with the rental agreement, but the landlord says otherwise, the best the tenant can do is carefully document the tenant’s compliance with the rental agreement. That way, if the landlord later takes legal action against the tenant, the tenant will have evidence to show that the tenant did comply with the rental agreement.
