If you are looking for a correction to correct an error in your lease, you must prove that you and the other party are in fact agreeing on a deal that is not identical to the agreement stipulated in the lease. It happened to a friend who is not a professional landlord, but who has been renting for years. I am curious to know what other people who were in their situation would do. I can`t imagine it happening to a more professional landlord because we have all our cheques and balances and we bring back the rent and down payment the first month by lease, etc. If no documentation is available, talk to the tenant and explain the situation. If they refuse to do something about it, I would make it clear to them that because of their refusal to do the right thing and to be responsible for a small typo, I too will be a stick on every letter of the lease. $200 – 12 months – $2400 rent lost. It`s like dropping a Deadbeat without paying the total rent of $550 for 4 months! Therefore, I would file the eviction if the rent is not full the minute it is late, so I can get rid of it and get tenants who pay the correct amount. The lease was the contract offer, and your signing and payment were accepting that offer. If you have purchased a rental property and your rental agreement contains a design error, this error can lead to real problems if you try to sell your property. Lenders, in particular, are very reluctant to lend in this scenario. If you want to negotiate your next lease, please invest in a competent resource. We will be happy to help you achieve the most favourable conditions.
Contact me to start the process. I would call the tenant and recognize the typo and remind them of our previous conversations, then give them the right information or change the current paperwork with initials from me and the tenant. Not a member of BAR MO, so ask someone who is. But as a general rule, if you have a signed letter saying it is a temporary reminder of the agreement, you cannot simply rely on an earlier course of action or unwritten negotiations. The loss of money here is considerable, we don`t talk about $50 a month… So it is definitely helpful for your friend to talk to a lawyer. For the Port Authority of Guam, this was the precedent. A typo in its lease with Aqua World allowed the company to have 10 hectares more land than originally planned. According to the governor`s interim report, Aqua World should have received only one hectare, but was obtained due to a typo in Agreement 11. A court ruled in 2001 that this was a mistake, and between 2008 and 2010, “discussions took place with Aqua World on changing its lease to reflect 1 hectare instead of 11 (Acres).” However, the death of the owner of Aqua World and legal assistance from both parties delayed the implementation of the amendment. The port authority is currently considering terminating the lease.
My husband went to the office to get another one, and they had changed it into a pencil with someone who puts it at 30.11.19. However, this is not the copy I signed, the signature does not match. I have all the original papers. Can it be used to terminate my lease? We`re sorry, but there was a typo in the contract, it`s missing a zero. The project fee should be 100,000 USD instead of 10,000 USD. In general, as unfair as certain terms of your lease are, you cannot change these conditions without the consent of your landlord.
