Sign my scary documents or vacate!

Posted by Lesley Fogle on September 20, 1998 at 20:36:11:

I have been on a month to month basis for seven months since my 12 month lease expired. My landlord sent me a notice with 8 days to sign the new 12 month agreement or sign the notice of discontinuance of my month to month status. The new lease is scary like this line:

"If tenant defaults in the payment of any rental, utility or damage payments due Landlord that should make it necessary for Landlord to resort to legal proceedings, then in that event, the tenant will pay to landlord all damages connected with such proceedings, and to include an agreed $100 re-rental fe to cover administrative expenses anticipated in re-renting the premises."

I replied that I could not afford to move out in 30 days and that I would agree to signing an agreement if we could discuss and possibly negotiate 3 lines of the lease. She replied that I had two options: to sign the lease as is or to vacate in 30 days.

Is this right?
