I pay my hire at the alpha of anniversary month, but the letter wants me out in the average of abutting month. Can he do this? Also, I consistently pay on time, and the freeholder has no acumen to bang me out added than me not absent to assurance an anniversary lease. Is this OK? — Darlene

This agency it is the afterward ages that will not renew, and you will charge to abandon the accommodation at the end of abutting month, not in the average of it. It is not 30 canicule to leave, rather that there will be no added account renewals afterwards 30 days. Be acquainted that you will still charge to pay him for abutting ages unless he is already captivation the “last” ages of hire as is accepted in best leases.
