  • UGH %^*$ sassafrass.

    I am so TICKED off....


    I own a salon, it is in a shopping plaza, my tenant lease is up in the end of June. I let my landlord know that I would be leaving at the end (they have raised my rent and c.a.m over $1000 per month). When I first rented the space my rent was $2450, in July they raised it to $2800 in December they raised my cam almost 400 per month and in January they sent me a ltter of a new rate increase starting in July. Anyway, they called me yesterday and said " we are envoking our right to terminate the lease early and I have 30 days". I griped so they offered "if you would like to renew your lease we can postpone it to lease end".


    CRUD, this is sooooo not right. I called my Attorney and he said that a landlord can end the lease within 120 days and give me 30 days to leave.

    I have NEVER been late on payment, been a good tenant, everything they could want. The plaza has lost A LOT of tenants in the past several months, I am not sure if my rate increase has been to compensate for that or what.

    Just needed to vent...ugh.

        I am sorry to heard that, I hope you will find somewhere better.
        Once I needed to look for a new place to live, and I found one just fit my needs, but I was one day late and someone took it already. I was sad and mad at myself, however, two months later, the block had a fire and four houses were burned down, included the one I wanted to rent. This is true, it happened on me.

          I don't know if things are same in each state but here in Calif if a landlord wants to evict a tennant and the tennant doesn't leave it takes about 90 days to force them out. I would just tell them that you are not renewing the lease and will arrange to vacate as soon as possible. Then just continue to pay your rent on time and don't move out until you have a new place. By the time they can force you out it will be June anyway. In the mean time, I assume since you weren't planning on renewing you must be looking for another place anyway so maybe you will be ready to leave sooner than you think.

            Sorry to hear all the trouble you are going through. But maybe it is the best thing, in the long run.

              Sorry to hear about that. WOW, those are HUGE rent raises. I know in tenant housing here in Utah, they are not allowed to raise it more than 10%, which our landlord just did.

              Have you checked on the legalities of THAT?

              My first thought, though, was that they raised your rent over and over to try and get rid of you for some reason...like maybe they have another idea in mind but that you were still in a lease. Not sure if that is a valid thought, though, since they were able to give you the 30 days notice.

              How frustrating! Keep us posted on this.

                Why didn't your attorney advise you from the beginning that this could happen???? You didn't say if they gave you a reason that you are being asked to leave...do you know why?

                  You would think they would want the income from your rent as long as they could get it! Some landlords are such jerks! Not the same thing, but my 88 year old aunt was in great health, sold her home and moved to an apt. broke her back during the move, was only at the apt for 2 weeks, and do you know they would not let her out of her year lease? She could never live there, and they took her money for 12 months. I hope things work out for you. I just feel that they should try to work with people who are honest. You have been a good tenant for them, and they should consider that.

                    been there

                    I went through a similar thing about 4 months ago and needed to find a new place. I ended up buying a place and expanded my business and and hired another groomer. My business is taken off and i been at it for 3 yrs. I think this was a blessing in disguise. not everyone can afford to do it but you cant afford not to. my payment was the same as my rent and my building went from 40x40 to 80x60 with billboard on lot that I rent out and a large lot for outside kennels because now i offer boarding. you can even find someone to owner finance.

                      Groom, this can always happen. In Florida commercial landlords can terminate the lease early within 120 days with a 30 notice.

                      I think they were trying to force me to stay, thinking I couldn't get out so fast and would just say screw it, they did offer to not do the new price increase. But, I felt that would be only temporary and they would get me someother way. I rent their second largest space all of the rest are 1/2 of our size. I already have a new place that is why I gave notice (most commercial leases ask for 4-6 months notice of leaving if it is a self renewing lease). Yes, my new place is $1,000 less per month, same size (practically) can be built to my standards and is so foofoo but my contractor wasn't going to have it ready that quickly. I had to meet him today to up our time frame.

                      I am just frusterated to have to rush a project that I was hoping to be timely and more lush.

                        Landlords stink! The ;eases always favor them, too bad you were being conciderate and tipped your hand too soon, next time only give what notice is stated in the lease. Do you think you have a shot at getting your dseposit back????

                          Yes, I did take pictures before I moved in to show what it looked like and kept receipts of improvements. I repainted and added a few french doors, alarm system and a few other minor cosmetic improvement.

                            I'm trying to figure out how they raised your rent if you are in a lease??? I understand the CAM charges, mine fluctuate up and down, but the rent has to stay what your lease states. They can't just decide to raise the rent until you sign into a new lease. My lease (5 yr. lease) had a raise of $50/month after 3 years. I also have an option to renew for another 5 years with a locked in rent for that 5 years, slight increase due to inflation. Read your lease, what it states for rent is all that you are required to pay. Good Luck!

                              You know, some people have no conscience

                              Sounds like they're doing this to you because they can...which SUCKS! I hope their plan backfires, whatever it is.

                              Why do something like that to a good tenant? Maybe they do have plans for your space, who knows, it's just rotten.

                              It'll get better, you planned on getting out anyway. Here's hoping you're able to get into your new space sooner rather than later. You can still make it lush, you'll just have some chaos for a few months but it will work out. Everything happens for a reason.
