Wow, this is definitely a legal question. Once she learns her legal rights, it will still probably be necessary to contact the police to escort her to the premises to reclaim her property, but I would have someone else set up that arrangement, if at all possible. Better safe than sorry. ... more

Run a credit check on the new tenant. Interview them and sometimes ask for 1.5 months deposit

Do a google search for sites that do credit checks. There will be a fee involved.

In either case, the annual total will be the same, and paid in advance; correct?

So the net result to the Landlord is that they see only monthly installments, but have some security.

The net result to the tenant, is really no different: They pat everything up front, and they cannot back out of the lease. If they wanted to back out of the lease, they would have to have the Landlords permission to withdraw the remaining funds from Escrow.

What would Solomon do?

Solomon says; this is silly; if you cannot trust each other, complicating the payments accomplishes nothing. The Tenant should look for another place to live.

My advise is to hook up with a Realtor who knows the rental market and have them negotiate on your behalf. They see leases everyday. Also, they should know the market place better, and in most cases, there is no charge to the tenant from that Realtor who represents them. ... more

Hi Jodi,

First question is did they know? I would approach the owner or management company and start an important discussion immediately. They should immediately release you from obligation and help you locate other accomadations. Sorry for your trouble and good luck. ... more

The rental lease goes with the sale, so as long as the lease is current the owners can change but things are the same for you until the lease expires.

Dear Mark,
If you go to our company's rental website,, you will see that we have a couple of rentals that might work for you. Many of this area's rentals are 90-day minimums, and asking prices are usually $3000 - $3200, but, if the market is like this year, most landlords will negotiate. By the way, I assume you meant 2010?
Our rental expert is Cathy Graves. You'll find her contact information on the website, if you are interested.

I would be very careful if I were you-especially with craigslist. You should probably contact a rental agent in that area to see what the standard deposit is and maybe have them look into this further to make sure it on the up and up. Good luck! ... more
