  • Signed one lease, not valid, sign new one?

    I signed a 1-year lease prior to move-in. Then our move-in date, deposits, pet deposits, and other various things changed due to multiple issues and problems w/ the newly built duplex. The owner said he'd write us a new lease to reflect all changes. Checked w/ him several times, always said he'd get it done. Now, 6 months after living there, i have put in my 30 day notice to vacate. He now says he had the new lease ready, but i will be reqiured to stick to the original one if i'm moving. If this original lease was valid, then why would he want me to sign a new one? Is it my problem it took him over 6 months to draw up a new valid lease? Is the original valid if all the info is wrong?? I know this will end up in small claims because i am refusing to pay his "2 month buy-out". Any help, this is a tricky one!!!!

    I do have documentation on all issues that occurred to make the lease change.
    Thank you sooooooo much!!!!!!

    You can argue the first lease was invalidated when all sides agreed that all material terms were changing--and he never did sign a second lease so you were there month to month.
