Back rent witout a lease

Postby <Nell> » Fri Apr 05, 2002 2:38 pm

Can my ex-landlord prove I owe back rent when I was on a month-by-month without a lease. We had verbal agreements to pay the rent and there's a letter stating intention to pay but no lease.

All your landlord needs to do is make the claim you owe the money. You need to show receipts or records. As to the level of rent, that can be disputed. Is it a legal apartment?
