1) Our 2 year lease ends end of May 2011
2) Last year the first landlord sold to a company and immediately
this company increased the rent by 30%.
3) They are holding 2 month deposit also.
4) We have informed them that we will dishonor the last 2 cheques for the rent & they shall use the deposit for this.
5) Today this very unpolite landlord called yelling at my wife that this is not possible - it is illegal......I do not think this is illegal as I am quite sure if we would pay the last 2 months of the lease it will be a heck of trouble to get the deposit back from this landlord. As this landlord was not willing to negotiate anything (on rent increase or on extension of contract) we shall we be so nice ?
