A friend of mine had been renting an apartment in the city for about a year.
She had been on a waiting list for months and had only recently been allowed to move in.
But when the lease expired in the fall, she was offered a chance to live there.
“They just wanted to sell me out,” she says.
“I was really shocked when they gave me this opportunity, I really thought I’d just get my money back and go somewhere else.”
The experience was a little confusing.
When you sign up for a new lease, the landlord is required to provide a statement of facts.
The landlord can ask you questions about the building you live in, such as whether you live on the first floor, or on the second.
And they can give you a detailed list of all the apartments on the building’s lot.
But there’s a catch: If you sign your lease with the understanding you’ll only be able to live in the building for a certain amount of time, you’ll lose the right to move out at any time.
And even if you sign a new agreement and leave with the right amount of money, you may not be able change your mind.
“If you sign an agreement with the landlord, you’re basically signing a non-negotiable commitment to pay them back in full,” says Kristina Hickey, a lawyer at Hickey & Rees.
The same goes for a rent check, which must be sent to the landlord at least 15 days before the tenancy ends.
“And if you do not pay the rent in full, you cannot leave,” says Hickey.
It may seem like an obvious problem, but the landlord might not even know about it.
That’s because the lease doesn’t specify what happens if you don’t pay rent, and there’s no legal requirement for tenants to do so.
And that’s where a tenant’s rights to privacy come into play.
The laws around tenant privacy in the US vary, but generally, renters don’t have to provide any information about their rental property.
The Federal Trade Commission defines “rent” as the monthly rent charged to the property that a tenant owns, and “rental property” as a place that the tenant uses for a fixed-term, or fixed-price, purpose.
A rental property is generally not your own property.
“In New York, if a landlord wants to sell your property, they’re required to give you written notice, and then a notice of eviction,” says Karen Riehle, a landlord and lawyer at the New York State Attorney General’s Office.
But the rules are less clear in the rest of the country.
And landlords don’t always have to make it clear whether or not they have to give landlords the tenant’s name, address, telephone number, or other personal information.
In California, a tenant can file a complaint with the state’s Consumer Protection Commission about a landlord’s lack of a rental agreement.
And California law allows a landlord to evict a tenant without a tenant complaint if the landlord’s “negligence” is “substantial.”
That means that the landlord should have notified the tenant before the eviction, even if the tenant had been living there for just a few days.
“It’s a lot harder to enforce,” says Rieharle.
“A landlord has to be aware that they’re violating your rights, and that’s very difficult.”
The real problem?
The landlord is still obligated to give the tenant notice, but it’s a little harder to do.
For example, if you live across the street from a landlord, the law doesn’t require the landlord to give a tenant notice of their eviction.
Instead, the lease requires that the two landlords agree that the eviction will take place at a certain time and place.
But a landlord can also withhold the right of eviction without giving the tenant the notice they need, even when they give the notice.
So if you’re renting in Los Angeles, the tenant will need to wait until you’ve moved out to move back in, even though they’ve already signed the lease.
But if you have a long-term lease in New York City, or if you are renting in one of the state-mandated cities, the time and date for the eviction is not specified.
“The rules are very flexible, but they’re very vague,” says Kelli McArthur, a legal and policy analyst at the Legal Aid Society of New York.
“What they need to provide is information about the premises.
And it’s hard to get a lease with this.”
So what can you do if you find yourself in a similar situation?
If you want to move, there are a few options.
If you live within walking distance of a building, you can rent an apartment from a rental agency.
There are two main options.
The first is for short-term rentals, which allow you to stay for a limited period of time
