1) This agreement is written; and 2) The tenant receives something reasonable in return (for example. B a rent reduction or a landlord`s payment for work) If you have shared the apartment and not everyone is moving, the landlord can withdraw the total rent from the tenants who remain in the apartment. Even after the move, you may be liable for the portion of your roommate`s rental if that person leaves without the landlord`s proper notice or without paying the rent. In this case, you can sue your roommate to get money back in the conciliation court. To prevent this from happening to you, inform the landlord that you are leaving and that you are not responsible for the future rent. This may not work if you have signed a fixed-term lease, but should protect you in a monthly rent (periodic rental contract). A: Under Minnesota law, a one-year oral rent can be enforceable, unless the building has 12 units or more. In this case, any rental agreement must be written. If there are less than 12 units, an oral lease may be mandatory, unless it is more than one year. You have not explained the size of your building, but if there are 12 units or more, your verbal agreement is not binding and your landlord cannot get a one-year lease because it is not written. Some cities have regulations that prescribe written leases for leased property with less than 12 units, but not Minneapolis.
If you sublet, you are still liable under the lease, unless you receive the new tenants to sign their own rental agreement with the landlord. If this is not possible, establish a written agreement between you and the new tenants, free yourself from any obligation to rent and make them responsible for the damage. Careful! Constructive evacuation is only if the owner has not performed repairs or essential services. Constructive evacuation generally only applies to very serious conditions that make the rental unit uninhabitable, for example.B. if there is no heat or water in the rental unit. If you don`t want to move, read chapter 4. Maintenance and repair problems and Chapter 5. Minnesota tenant remedies for other steps you can take if there are serious repair problems. A: Minnesota law allows for the terminated lease if all tenants die on the lease.
If only one tenant dies and another tenant remains in the tenancy agreement, that tenant must cover the entire rent or negotiate a purchase with the landlord to terminate prematurely. You should have your landlord-in-law check your rental agreement, many rental agreements contain a buy-back clause that allows a tenant to terminate prematurely by paying a fee, often two months` rent. If there is no buy-back clause in your father-in-law`s tenancy agreement, he should talk to his landlord. Most homeowners would prefer to receive a payment to terminate prematurely rather than get nothing and must take legal action that can take months or years to claim compensation.
