Asked by Jason, New York • Thu Dec 1, 2011
I moved into a great apt on Nov 1st and signed a 6 month sublet agreement. I've dealt with contracts of all types for work and this one was pretty much just a liability waiver. I paid 2 months rent security deposit at move in and it was never disclosed in writing nor verbally that it was for the first 2 months or first and last. I assumed(I know i should never assume) it was for the first 2 months and that I would begin paying rent in January.
Yesterday the sublandlord texted me giving me a gentle reminder about rent being due. Both of us didn't have time to
discuss this at the time so we agreed to discuss it today at noon but he hasn't called me or answered any texts.
Since nothing was signed that designated the payment at the time of move in and I have already given him 2 months of rent(1 now) can he re-designate the money after the fact at his convenience since it was never clarified at the time of the signing? i just want to get some opinions
