Is it possible to get out of a Residential Lease that I signed 4 months ago for a one year agreement?
I am a landlord and also a licensed broker. Aside from simply trying to negotiate with the landlord to break your lease early, there's nothing you can legally do to break it and not be on the hook for the remainder of the lease term. HOWEVER, if you abandon the premises, the landlord has a legal obligation to make his/her "best effort" to re-rent the property out. If the landlord finds a new tenant, then you are off the hook from that point on. Any months during the lease where rent was not paid and the landlord didn't have a new tenant in place, you'll be on the hook for. If you choose not to pay those amounts, the landlord can pursue civil action against you to recover them.Whether your landlord will actually follow the law and make a reasonable effort to re-rent the property out really is determined by whether you were paying above/below market rate for the place, and/or how easy it will be for the landlord to come after you to recover that money.The one thing the landlord can not legally do is collect double rents (i.e from you and a new tenant).
How long can a residential lease agreement be?
How long can a residential lease agreement be?For Colorado, United States:Colorado has no laws in place that requires a minimum or maximum term. Your state and locality may have laws that address lease terms, so make sure you check on local law.For practical purposes, if residential real estate is leased to a real person, the term of the lease would be limited only by the life of the person. Beyond the end of a person’s life, the lease would be unenforceable against the decedent unless there are specific terms that addresses the person’s estate’s responsibility to fulfill the terms of the lease.
What should I do for proof of address for my online passport form? I forget to fill the residential address, I only filled my permanent address. Can I show my rent agreement during the appointment?
As far as I can remember the online application do ask for your current residential address and the permanent address. It seems like you have given your permanent address as your current address. Anyway, if your application is not complete, i.e., you haven't scheduled for an appointment at PSK centre yet, you can always go back to your saved online application and rectify accordingly.If you have completed your application with the permanent address and already scheduled for an appointment at PSK centre, then you have to make the necessary changes at the PSK centre only.For any change in address you have to provide valid documents like notary stamped rental agreement or bank attested account passbook. They may even ask you to update your Adhaar to your current address. It's better to go for the appointment with available documents and complete the verification process. If they are asking for specific residential address proof then you may have to do what they say. As far as I know they are flexible with the address and will change your address if you possess the required documents.If in doubt you can always visit their website Passport Seva Home | Indian Passport | Passport | Passport Seva Project for clarification and also talk to the customer care executive.

What is the difference between the Residential Tenancy Agreement and the Agreement to Lease in Ontario?
There’s a few different ways to look at this, depending on your context, but I’ll try to keep this simple and short.A Residential Tenancy Agreement is a legal contract between a landlord and a tenant for a residential unit. It’s a standardized form produced by the Ontario government and as of April 30th, 2018 it is the required form for all residential leases signed on or after that date. It is explicitly governed by the Residential Tenancies Act (2006), the law that covers residential rentals in Ontario.An “agreement to lease” is not specific legally defined form. In most cases, it likely just refers to an older form that was used for many residential leases, produced by the Ontario Real Estate Association. Many (possibly most) residential leases signed in Ontario in the last 20 or so year, but before April 20th, 2018, were done using this form.However, it’s worth noting that the term an “agreement to lease” has also been used for pre-lease forms (basically an application) as well as for commercial, industrial, machinery and many other leases.
Is it possible to access the equity in your home without moving?
Yes! It is!Housing startup Easyknock created Sell and Stay, a residential sale leaseback program. At its most basic, that means you sell your house to us, then rent it back. How exactly does that work? Read on to better understand each step of the Sell and Stay process.You Fill Out the Form to See If You Qualify for Sell & StayWhile we don’t require your credit score or a certain amount of income, we do need to make sure that your home qualifies for our program. You fill out the qualification form and we’ll let you know in short order whether you’ll be able to participate in the program.We’ll Write Up a ContractIf you decide Sell and Stay is for you, we’ll write up sale and lease contracts. This basically combines the processes you’d go through while selling and renting a home, making one conditional on the other. We can close on the sale and leaseback in as little as 21 days. While you don’t need to get a lawyer to represent your interests, we highly suggest that you do.We Cut You a Check for Your EquityWe pay you a large portion of your home equity. Your home equity is the money that you have invested in your home, the difference between your home’s market value and the amount you owe on your mortgage.You Are No Longer Obligated to Your Mortgage CompanyWhen you sell your home to us with Sell and Stay, you no longer have a mortgage or therefore a mortgage payment. We own your home and that means you don’t have mortgage debt. However, you’ll have to pay rent every month just like you would if you rented any other home.You Continue Living in Your HomeWhen you take part in EasyKnock’s Sell and Stay program, we write up a lease contract while we’re working out the details of buying your home. The two go hand in hand. One of the conditions of you selling us your home is that we are obligated to rent it back to you so long as you hold up your end of the lease contract. It’s essentially the same as renting any other home, except it’s the home you used to own.While you’re living in the home under the lease agreement, EasyKnock will cover the property taxes. You are required to handle basic maintenance on the home like lawn care, snow removal, and appliance maintenance. You don’t need home owner’s insurance any more, but we recommend that you get a renter’s insurance policy to protect your belongings.You Can Move or Buy Back Your Home at Any PointIf you decide you don’t want to live in the home any more, that’s alright! You just give us permission to put the home on the market and we’ll give you the difference between your initial equity check and the sell-out value. You don’t even necessarily have to turn over control over the selling process. If you want, you can set the value, choose the realtor, and make other decisions pertaining to the selling of the home. We let you out of remainder of the lease if you sell early.You can also buy your home back. You’d pay us a cost laid out in the initial contract either in cash or by getting a new home loan. You’d no longer be obligated by the lease, and you’d own your home again.
