Do I have a written lease (or do I have a lease at all)?
Every landlord-tenant relationship has a lease agreement. The agreement may be written or oral. A written agreement may have a long term or it may be on a month-to-month basis. Most written leases do not vanish after the expiration of the initial lease term, the term just shortens to month-to-month. Caveat: The status of your expired term written lease may depend on the language that is in your written lease. Please consult with an attorney to determine the status of your expired term written lease.
