Q. LL gave us a 90 notice to vacate due to “unforeseen circumstances.” Is this legal? They stated that they are being
A: In Indiana, your landlord cannot remove you from the property without a court order in the form of an eviction. It sounds like your landlord might not actually be the owner of the property, but either a tenant themselves who is subleasing this property to you or they may not have been authorized to rent this property to you in the first place. Consult with a local landlord tenant attorney in your area for legal advice. I'd recommend doing that sooner rather than later if they are threatening eviction.
Q. Is there any compensation due to the tenant when the landlord terminates the lease after 3 months into a 6 month lease?
A: There are a very narrow set of circumstances where a landlord could unilaterally terminate the lease, usually owing to destruction of the property due to a natural disaster or fire. If you had a six month lease though, then that is how long the landlord is liable to rent the property to you: six months. Landlords cannot unilaterally end a lease agreement and force you out without an eviction. That said, without reviewing your lease agreement there is no way to give a good answer to this question. It could be the case that the landlord was actually renting to you month to month and they promised you six months verbally. A month to month lease agreement can be not renewed with 30 days notice that the next term is the last term. If that's the case, your landlord may be in the right here. Consult with a local landlord tenant attorney in your area for legal advice.
Q. My tenants has moved someone in with out notification of any kind is this allowed and can i leagally raise their rent
A: If your lease agreement does not allow for sub-tenants and the tenants are in violation of your lease agreement you can evict them for being in breach of the lease. It would be best to notify them first in writing that they are violating the terms of the lease agreement and give them their 10 day notice to quit or cure the violation of the lease agreement before going to file for an eviction. Consult with a local landlord/tenant attorney for legal advice.
