My Landlord Gave Me 6months Quit Notice When My Rent Will Due In 6months Time / Ghana Landlady Gives Female Nigerian Student Quit Notice Over Noise During Sex / Legal Advice Needed, My Landlord Just Brought Quit Notice For All Tenants. (2) (3) (4)
|Landlord Just Gave Us Quit Notice by Jeremy123(m): 8:17pm On Dec 23, 2022|
Good evening everyone
Sorry this might be a long read
I would also love if this is moved to front page, I would need every possible help as my landlord is currently raving mad.
Now back to 2020, we moved to a new apartment as the former apartment where we've lived as a family for 18 years was about to demolished and the landlord gave us ample time for everyone in the apartment to move out.
We moved to this new apartment around July 2020 and we paid for 2 years upfront rent about 850k (350k yearly rent x2 plus agent and commission 150k) which means the rent is supposed to elapse June 2022.
Now before then, the landlord has been disturbing my father long before our rent was due that he wants to use our current apartment and that we should move to the next door apartment.
The apartment next door is 200k rent while ours is 350k
Ours is way furnished, tiled and more habitable than the other.
My dad refused after much in-house deliberation with me, my mum and my younger one and he outrightly refused.
By June 2022 weeks before our rent was due to expire, my dad paid for the rent for this current apartment where we are of which this man brought the issue of us moving to the next door apartment. My dad said he's not interested in moving to the next door apartment that it's not done and the man said no problem that our rent is no longer 350k but 400k.
I'm not sure if he paid the extra 50k tho but I outrightly remembered when he asked the man that if he didn't agree that the man should refund him the whole 350k and he sent his account number
Well, that means my dad paid which means our tenancy agreement is to run from July 2022 to June 2023 as he didn't send the money back to my dad account and receipt was issued.
Now, I just got home from nysc and lo and behold, I saw the landlord discussing with my mum of which he issued a quit notice letter to us dated 20th of December of which the letter states that we should move out on or before june 2022 and please remember our rent is supposed to expire June 2023
Now, I want to ask question
Is quit notice given when rent is not yet due
Is quit notice not suppose to be 6 months after it has expired.
Please, the location of the apartment is in lagos
I would appreciate any advise and if we can chase this legally cos the next door apartment is way below standard and when we told him that since the past tenant who just happened to pack out officially last week are paying 200k, we see no reason why we would pay 400k for that apartment.
I would drop the image of the letter
Let me blur some details

If the quit notice was issued december 2022, then it is legal to vacate the premises by june 2023.
It is not 6 months after your rent expires.
|Re: Landlord Just Gave Us Quit Notice by Jeremy123(m): 8:48pm On Dec 23, 2022|
Just saw online that quit notice should only be given after the expiration of your house rent. Meaning that our quit notice should start counting after June 2023

Ok, if you say so.
|Re: Landlord Just Gave Us Quit Notice by Jeremy123(m): 8:50pm On Dec 23, 2022|
I'm just saying
Or what do you think
Is quit notice not after we've elapsed our house rent and its not like we're owing o
We've always paid on time even before our rent approaches the date of expiration
|Re: Landlord Just Gave Us Quit Notice by yomi007k(m): 8:53pm On Dec 23, 2022|
According to what you posted, it says tenant can be "ejected" after the rent expires.
It doesn't say quit notice should be given after the rent expires.
But let us wait for other inputs.
|Re: Landlord Just Gave Us Quit Notice by yomi007k(m): 8:55pm On Dec 23, 2022|
According to what you pasted there is a part that states "if the landlords requires use of the rental property "

Don't worry Brother, everything will be alright.

Jeremy123:from what I know for a one year tenancy your are given 6 months to quit and can be given when your tenancy is still running this means as regards your case the notice is counting already.
The landloard already showed he didn't want your family in his property anymore your dad wouldn't have renewed his tenancy. I'll advise your family start looking for another property now and leave as the notice states. No need for all the unnecessary stress and trouble.

This is sad tbh
The house, we're just managing
My 2023 resolution is to move my parents out of this place to a better place
And now, I'm in an undue pressure
How am I still going to achieve this
My original intention was to tell my dad that instead of paying new rent
Take this key to a new apartment and now see, QUIT NOTICE
|Re: Landlord Just Gave Us Quit Notice by aog: 9:21pm On Dec 23, 2022|
The tenancy law you are quoting here is old. Once your rent expires in June 2023. He can give you 7 days notice and show documentation that he is no longer interested in renewal
|Re: Landlord Just Gave Us Quit Notice by yomi007k(m): 9:22pm On Dec 23, 2022|
Jeremy, don't put yourself under any pressure.
Be grateful that you are still alive and healthy. People travelled and died, some have bad health issues that takes triple the amount of the rent you are talking about.
Life is full of ups and downs. Let's be positive and always do the right thing

Next time, don't get in the bad books of your landlord.
Let the skills of negotiation.
|Re: Landlord Just Gave Us Quit Notice by Jeremy123(m): 9:38pm On Dec 23, 2022|
We tried doing this
My dad even offered to pay higher
He only wanted us to move to the next door apartment at the current price of this one.
It's not fair at all
This place where we are was tushed to our standard, the tiles, the pop and everything
The next apartment doesn't even have half the quality of things in our own apartment that we literally installed to our own taste.
Apartment of 350 to another of 200k
We should then take the one of 200k and pay 350

If you are a member of labour party, that is very commendable from the landlord
|Re: Landlord Just Gave Us Quit Notice by Creamypie(m): 10:05pm On Dec 23, 2022|
Jeremy123:quit notice takes effect only after expiration of rent.and its 3 months free sir.
|Re: Landlord Just Gave Us Quit Notice by keeper303: 10:54pm On Dec 23, 2022|
You are wrong sir.
|Re: Landlord Just Gave Us Quit Notice by Jeremy123(m): 8:27am On Dec 24, 2022|
So which is right and what can be done
|Re: Landlord Just Gave Us Quit Notice by otomatic(m): 4:50pm On Dec 24, 2022|
The man has not ejected you yet. He is just telling you to vacate his property at the expiration of your rent.
Why do you want him to give you quit notice only when your rent expires, won't you pay for that period of notice? Most people who have this your mentality usually think that the notice period should be rent-free.
