We leased our home in Ohio back in August of 2008 and moved back to Charlotte. We had it on the market and

Asked by Tom Kirchner, Columbus, OH Tue Dec 2, 2008

it just didn't sell. Circumstances have arisen with our family that we need to re-occupy the home. The lease was a two year lease. (to expire on Aug. 2010) Early termination was accounted for in the lease agreement from the tenant's perspective (30 day notice) but nothing regarding us as the owners wanting to re-occupy early. What are my options to get back in my home within the next 90 or so days?

Dear Tom,

Since your question is of a LEGAL contract matter it would be best advised to talk to an Attorney. They will advise you in what you can do. You can call the Columbus Bar Association (614) 221-0754. They will be able to direct you to the proper person you need for your situation.

Tom,

Your only real option is to call the tenant and ask. You have a binding contract for someone to live in your home. Much the same as they would expect them not to move out, they will expect not to be forced out. They might be reasonable people and let you back in, you might even offer some money to make this happen.

I wholly agree with Tom of Columbus, Ohio. Contact the tennant and try to work something out. If that doesn't work, get an attorney.....This is purely a legal matter......

Tom,

You can start by calling the Tennant to see if they would even consider the idea. I STRONGLY suggest that you contact an Attorney for more detailed advice.

Good Luck,

Tom, I would simply call them. If they need some help finding another place to live and they want to rent, I would recommend they take a look at Craigslist.com.

Also, consulting a real estate attorney would not hurt......if you want the name of someone, call me at 6149374427.

Good luck.
