  • No lease

    Dear Sir or Madam,

    I have a question that I am hoping I will get an answer from you. I rent an apartment in Minneapolisin April of 2005 and I have been living there since then. When my lease expired in April 2006, I forgot to sign the new lease and they did not let me know that I did not sign it until last week. However, I talked to someone from the management office about the new rent amount in April 2006 and started paying the new rent from May of 2006. Since I did not sign the lease, I decided to move out next month. However, the managent of the building told me that I am on a month to month lease now, and if I want to move out, I need to pay the difference of the market rent rate and the rent they were charging for the last 6 months and also have to give them 60 day notice. I would like to find out if I really need to give them 60 day notice even I have nothing signed and also need to pay the prior month differences between the market rate and the discounted rate? What can they legally do if I move out next month and refuse to pay the diffrence amount for prior months? Can I also get my deposit back? The only thing I signed was the lease renewal notification saying that I will renew my lease for the next 12 months, but I did not sign the lease. I will appericiate, if you can give me some legal advice? Thank you very much for your time and consideration.

    You need not pay the rent differences. Your original lease may have terms about going month to month but otherwise you normally only have to give 30 days notice if any. Ask them to provide in writing what grounds they have for 60 days notice. Let us know what they claim.

      The management office said I need to pay the rent differences and if I don't in 3 days, they will send it to collection. I don't know if they can legally do that, but they send me a very formal letter saying that if I decide not to sign the lease, that rent difference should be paid in three days.

        You may dispute it and go to small claims court if you have to--
