The agreement signed in February was for a 6 month lease with the addendum stating at the end of the lease we could sign another term without a rent increase.
This means that he needs to offer this option to us? And what happens if he refuses, because that is what is going on now?
Also, I think I paid extra for a phone conversation so if it is easier you can call me.
1 more question that I didn't think of before... If we decide to just pay our rent and not acknowledge this new lease that the landlord would like us to sign, can he keep our original deposit, stating that we refused to pay the rent increase or that we were living in the flat without a lease...
Whatever the reason, can he keep our deposit if we choose to go this route.
