(“Welshing” is actually a derogatory term, did you know that? Seems obvious, if you think about it. When did they start welshing on people?)
Question: Recently my mother signed a lease and paid a deposit for an apartment and decided it was not the right choice for her. She contacted the landlord within two days (verbally) and gave a written letter within three days. The landlord said it was fine but then changed his mind and now wishes to hold her to the lease. I thought that there was a consumer protection law that allows a cooling off and rescission period for leases?
Answer: Oh, she’s pretty much out of luck. I’ve never heard of a three-day clause. Maybe a one-day clause, in Massachusetts. Anyone else?
Question: I’m in a position where I may have to leave the area due to a job change. If I remember it right, there is a provision in the law for just such a case where the renter would not be liable for the balance of the lease if he/she gave suitable notice. Is that true and can I break the lease on those grounds?
