Do you get house keys when you sign lease or move in?
You get your house key(s) whenever you sign the lease. Normally your lease is not prepared until you've worked out your first month's rent and any deposits that are required. In most states the landlord must give you the keys to the front door of your house. If this happens you have the right to change any of the other locks without your landlord's permission, but not the lock of which your landlord gave you the key.

Answer . As you know a signed lease is a contract between you and the landlord and unless you are lucky enough to have an understanding landlord and you have a very, very good reason to break this contract then you are responsible for the agreement in that contract. Usually people have to pay the… first and last months rent and possibly a damage deposit and you may lose that. You have tied up the landlord from renting to someone else, so it would be to your best interest to offer to let him/her keep the first months rent. Talk to the new landlord and hopefully your reasons for not moving in are valid and you just haven't found a better place to move too. You may just get lucky. (MORE)

Can you get your security deposit back if you signed a lease but the landlord has not signed yet and move in date is in 3 weeks?
Answer . Technically, yes. If you never took residency (and never accepted keys to your unit), there could not possibly be any damage that was caused by you. However, you may wish to worry about fees involved in breaking a lease - you may have to forfeit a month or two's rent!
You do not allow them to move into the premises or you give up the idea of having the protection of a lease. Once you let them move in without signing a lease they are your problem. It should be noted that a tenant who refuses to sign a lease is giving you a loud message about what type of experienc…e you can expect in the future. (MORE)
Yes, but only if the lease permits it or when the lease expires. There is a presumption that a purchaser of rental property will know the terms and conditions of every lease for current tenants.

No signed lease. 4 of us share a house 1 moved out now the son of the landlord wants me to pay a portion toward the empty room.who is responsible for paying 2are the children of landlord.i'm not?
Since there is no signed lease, unless you are married to the person who moved out, you are not responsible for his portion of the rent. The landlord(s) must take the tenant who moved out to small claims for his portion of the rent (and hope for a default judgment).. ----------------. The grammar …and sense of the question is quite The landlord only wants the full amount every month. If there are four or three or even two residents doesn't matter. (MORE)
An individual can sign as many as they wish. But they are going to have to show that they can cover the costs. It's not illegal but most people advise against it, as that means you are responsible for twice as much money. You could wind up losing one or both deposits because you will not be living… in both places at the same time. (MORE)

If a lease agreement is signed but tenant has not moved in or paid a deposit can a landlord cancel the agreement?
Depends on the Written Agreement itself, does the Agreement so state the claims of your argument in terms of your Recourse, or Theirs? How can one make a Agreement, if both parties don't agree to the terms, and still call it a Agreement? Likewise it depends on the State Statutes in your State where …you and the tenant made the Agreement, does it conflict with State or local laws? I would like to know which one of the two you Represent, The Tenant, or the Landlord? i am the tenant me and the landlord had a sign state agency rental agreemnet at the last minute chane her mind leaving me and two children facing homeless i am also about to loose my housing voucher which will expire 11/30/09 (MORE)
You would be liable for the cost of the rent and the fees in your lease for breaking the lease. Your landlord can also successfully sue you to recover damages to re advertise the place. Your landlord also has a duty to mitigate his damages, and to find a replacement tenant as quickly as possible.… Unless you have a good cause to not move in; you will be stuck with these costs. A good cause would be unable to have quiet enjoyment of the house, anything structurally wrong with the house, or you can prove you will not be safe living in that house. (MORE)
I am pretty sure you need to be at least 18 or 19. Check with your local neighborhoods and see!
If you signed a lease for an apartment is it possible for them to move you to another apartment after you signed for that specific apartment already?
This depends on the terms of your lease. Read the fine print. Many (most) apartment complexes have clauses the lease which give the owner the authority to make changes like this whenever they want. The only legal ground you would have against something like that would be if they moved you into an… apartment which was demonstrably of lower quality, smaller, or did not have features which you paid extra for. For example, if you paid extra for a ground-floor or handicapped accessible apartment. (MORE)
Your tenancy begins as soon as the home is "handed" over to you, as signaled by the passing of the key(s) to the unit, not upon the signing of the lease. So if your landlord doesn't give you the key, you can rescind your agreement and demand your money back if you paid it.
Normally the landlord must give at least a 30-day notice before the expiration of the lease that he will not renew it, so the tenant must leave.. There is one exception: if the tenant is in violation of the terms of the lease, the landlord may terminate the lease and give such short notice for the …tenant to leave. (MORE)
The handing over of the key is the symbology of the handing over of the rental unit. The landlord can do this at any stage of the rental of the apartment, but it is normal procedure to do so upon payment of all move-in costs (that is, rent, security, etc.) and the signing of the lease.
Usually proof of income, drivers licence, and sometimes a electric bill to show your former address. The person renting will have a form you fill out and will do a credit check.
Move out of the apartment, let them keep your deposit. Or you can, with the landlord's permission, assign the lease to someone else to take over.
Original tenant dies and her siblings and son are in the house The siblings sign a lease with the landlord Can the landlord terminate the lease after running a background check?

New york city you rent a house and signed a year lease the landlord told you to leave 2 months before the lease is up can you sue?
If you simply agreed to leave, then that may be it. If he evicted you for cause, you might owe him for those months. If he violated your quiet enjoyment in the way he asked you to leave, then you might be able to sue for up to three months.
The foreclosure sale will function to terminate the lease. However, until the foreclosure sale takes place, the owner is still the owner, and the lease remains in effect.
The landlord has an obligation to try to mitigate his loss by attempting to rent the apartment. If after diligent effort he cannot do so, he has the right to sue the tenant for each month that he did not get paid, through the end of the lease.
Only under certain circumstances: If you are acting as the Power Of Attorney for someone, you can sign your name as acting for them. - If you are a parent signing something fror a minor child (not legally capable of signing a contract) - or similar circumstance where you are legally empowered to do …so. Otherwise signing a lease that is not in your name is meaningless for both you AND the person whose name appears on it. It is NOT legally enforceable by the landlord either. (MORE)

They can ask, and some people might do it, but you don't have to, unless the deposit is written into the lease.
Yes it is possibly to break the contract however you will most likely have to pay a penalty fee for breaking the contract.
Can i get my deposit back on a house if i haven t moved in yet but i have signed the lease the house is nowhere near being ready to move in yet i was told it would be do i wait or go somewhere else?
Does the lease say it would be ready by now? If the landlord has not fulfilled his end of the contract, you shouldn't be obligated to uphold yours. You should probably speak with a local attorney. If the lease doesn't actually specify a move-in date, then it's trickier. Again, you should speak with… an attorney. (MORE)
Normally, you cannot rent without signing a lease unless you rent from someone you know who is willing to enter into this type of arrangement. You can also sublease from someone.
believe in most states it would not be legal as the 17yo is not considered an adult and not able to sign a legally binding document
The landlord has an obligation to try to rent to someone else. If he does not, the tenant owes the rent for every month until the lease naturally expires.
No, unless the landlord can rent the unit to someone else before the rental period starts. The tendering of money in exchange for the keys created a contract.
England. WRONG. LEND-LEASE WAS AN AMERICAN LAW; THUS, IT WAS PASSED BY THE U.S CONGRESS AND SIGNED BY THE PRESIDENT (frd) - -- ALL IN WASHINGTON, D.C.

A lease IS a contract. If you did not sign it, you do not have a lease.
Can a landlord demand a higher deposit AFTER the lease has been signed and the check for deposit written into lease has been cashed if you have not moved in yet?
Generally speaking, after the release has been mutually signed, it is in effect, and the terms of it cannot be changed. Once the lease has been signed by both parties and the keys have been turned over to you, the tenant, the dwelling then is considered to be in your possession. As such, the landlor…d cannot turn around and demand a higher deposit. However, in most states, there is a rule of abandonment: if you have not moved into your dwelling in 15 days, and the rent is due, then the landlord can construe this as abandonment and can take possession of the property immediately without judicial proceedings.

Generally yes, if the spouse is going to be living with the tenant. Most landlords will require that all adults who will be living in the property unit sign the lease, and are subject to the same terms of the lease as the principal signer.
Normally a lease is not signed until the deposit has been paid. So if you do sign the lease when you have not moved in or paid the deposit, you have the advantage and are probably not obliged to continue the tenancy.
A leasing contract would typically be signed when and only when the occupants of the home and the leaser both agree to the terms in the contract set up.
Depends on the country you have in mind. In some countries a verbal agreement before witnesses can already be binding. But in most countries a lease agreement is only binding when it has been put in writing and has been signed by the lessee.
A lease holds a binding agreement between the landlord and tenantfor the duration of the term of the lease. If a tenant is rentingthe property or unit on a month-to-month basis then the landlordcould make changes to the terms of the month-to-month tenancy atany time, given proper notice (for month-t…o-month it would be 30days before the next rent is due). This could mean a sudden renthike or other changes like no longer allowing pets. (MORE)
