In Reply to: Tax liens and landlord suing for remainder of time on lease posted by wilfire99 on July 06, 2000 at 22:41:27:
During a one year lease, you must complete the year or pay the difference for the rental for that one year (something about repairs and maint) lease, But on a renewal you can give 30 days notice with the intention to move and move out without any penalties.
Your friends ex may have notified the landlord of his vacancy when she denied him access to the apartment and a spare key.
Look it up? Who knows...
: My friend and his girlfriend just broke up for the second time and this time there is no going back. They both signed a 2 year lease for an apt for $2000.00 per month rent. He moved out and she wants to stay. Now she refuses to pay the whole amount of the rent and told the landlord to sue for the other half. Although the landlord can do this, my friend has IRS tax liens. Now, my question is, Can my friend offer a settlement amount to the landlord to be removed from the lease and make his ex girl-friend the only tenant responsible for the rent? If the landlord does choose to sue for the $24,000.00 (24 months at $1000.00 each)and gets a judgement, will the landlord have to wait until the tax liens are paid (10 years)? Will it be in the best interest of the landlord to take a settlement amount of say $3,000.00-$6,000.00 to remove my friend from the lease and give his ex gilfirend 3-6 months to find another place to live?
: Also, is it legal for my friend to offer a settlement to be removed from the lease?
