Sad update to pregnant daughters California nightmare leasing a unit as per previous post(s)
We plan on moving them out due to material misrepresentation ( no air , when leasing agent advertisement said air conditioned) and landlords latest counter off" we install air, our expense ($3800) in return he reduces rent by $100 dollars per month, but we must sign a new 3 year lease, and association must approve air unit. (impossible due to rules on "eyesore" as per other neighbors who have air but just put it in anyway)
But the daughter said "I think there was something in the lease I read limiting amount of money damages that can be awarded reguarding this lease to $500"
Help! If so he owns our deposit and the October rent we paid in order to not break lease waiting on counter offer. Others here have said the lease is void and no notice is required to move, so if the lease is void-assuming-how can any clause-legal or otherwise be held to be binding, such as $500 limit?
