What a verbal lease means for you

Apr 25, 2024

The new Tenant seems chill.

And has the deposit in hand.

So you shake hands, and skip the paperwork.

It just seems, so, formal!

All is good.

But then rent goes missing.

Aunt Sally turns the couch into her new digs.

And things spiral...

So you lawyer up with the best in the business.

And the first question is:

Do you have a lease?

Umm... I'll take my seat at the kiddie table!

Write this down:

A verbal lease means a month-to-month Tenant. 

And yes, you can evict them.

Even if they're paid up.

And haven't trashed the place.

See them out with a 30-Day Notice.
