Your right or the right of your landlord to terminate a lease and your right to stay and be safe from eviction depend on the type of lease you have. I learned on Thursday (22.10.2020) that my manager in my apartment complex had falsified my signature on a lease. My son and I were moving to a new apartment. We had passed the credit and background exam, but the new apartment needed the old history of the apartment that was faxed to them by the manager. The manager faxed papers to the new apartment and explained that I had terminated my rental contract which will end in July 2021. The problem was that my son and I had never signed a lease, as the lease could be terminated. The apartment complex in which we live was renovated by new owners in September 2019. The last time my son and I signed a lease in the manager`s office was August 2019 before the renovation by the previous owners. We never signed a lease with the new owners. So we were not approved for the new apartment because we were told that we had terminated our lease. The way I found out that the manager had falsified our signatures, it was in September that I asked for a lease because we had plans to move. I assume she would give me the lease in August 2019, but she gave me a lease from January 2020 to December 2020 with our false signatures on the lease (another forgery lease).
My son and I gave a letter from the Vacate on October 14th and we must be in this apartment by November 14th. We have nowhere to go and it is not easy to find apartments in Louisiana. I am so angry and hurt because we are accused of using something we didn`t do (rent terminated) and how someone dares to use my son and my signature. We also lost a beautiful place to live. I need help. The reason we left the house is because the neighbors next door moved in and brought cockroaches. The last nine months have been a living nightmare for me and my son. The kitchen has not been used in eight months.
I pulled the kitchen into the living room and cooked on cooking plates and electric skillets. I wash dishes in the sink or in the bathroom bathtub. This experience was crazy, so I need help so we can get out of this apartment. Help me!!! Hello Migdalia, unless you have signed a new lease before the old one, you are now on a month to month contract until the new lease is signed by both parties. I strongly recommend that you contact your landlord as soon as possible to find out why there was a delay in depositing the cheque and paying the new lease. This protects you if, for example, an owner refuses to rent you a place on one of these lands. It will also protect you if you have already moved in and your landlord learns something about you – for example, that you are Muslim – and tells them to move.
