In Reply to: Land Lord Subleased apt to some else while I'm on vacation and still charged me rent!!! posted by Henry Teng on August 18, 1998 at 00:05:58:
An agreement is an agreement. Doesn't matter how much....file a small
claims court suit and let a judge figure it out. Sounds like she's already
on the outs with her landlord, so no friends are lost anyway.
: Hi, I'm posting this for my younger sister living in Baltimore.
: Without notifying her land lord ( a big mistake ) she entered an oral
: agreement to sublet her apt to a friend for 3 months (June to Sept) and
: was going to collect the rent when she's back from summer vacation.
: When her land lord found out about this, he signed a lease with the person
: who subletted the apt for 3 months and refuse to refund the 3 months' rent
: that my sister already paid back in June!!! Therefore the land lord is
: collecting rent from two persons for the SAME APT!! Is this legal? Can my
: sister sue her land lord?
: The amout involved is under $500 so I figure the oral agreement should have
: legal effect. Please help!! Thanks!
