The landlords knew I was living and I have paid for rent (to MIL), internet (directly), food and other bills since I moved in 7 months ago. She told me I had two days to move until I got paid. Is it legal? I am pretty sure I am entitled to 30 days` notice, since the landlords have agreed that I stay on the lease orally. A lease agreement is a kind of ownership of land (or strictly “interest for”) and the 1925 Act states that all interests on land must be created by an act. A written rental agreement documents the length of time a tenant lives in real estate. Such duly written agreements provide security for the parties and may define the dispute settlement mechanism. For landlords and tenants, it is usually not advisable to rent commercial premises without written agreement, but for either reason we are often approached by customers who find themselves in this situation and need advice. . . .
