In Reply to: Old tenant not leaving - I have a signed lease! posted by Anthony Rossello on July 30, 1999 at 19:50:57:
Read your lease. There are probably time limits for delays like this, and you may have to make some choices and notify the landlord of your choices. You may ultimately be able to cancel the lease and get your money back.
: In mid-July of this year, I signed a lease to begin on 8/1.
: I found out today, after pushing for two weeks to get a move-in date, that the
: current tenant is not moving out. Seems his new apt fell through.
: To compensate, the landlord has offered for me to move into another vacant apt
: in the building until the other tenant moves out.
: I checked out the apt tonight and I am not happy with it.
: And I am definitely not happy with the idea of moving into the
: original apt at some undefined date.
: I don't want to put more stress on the landlord as he is trying to accommodate,
: but this is obviously a serious inconvenience even with the vacant apt.
: Does anybody know what my rights are here and what I can
: reasonably request due to the inconvenience?
: Thanks in advance,
