Was it though? I wouldn't count a random piece of paper like that notice at all. Not official and would hardly stand up in a court. Or at least I would hope not.





So noted. I had thought that was dealt with in my previous post, giving evidence as to why my statements were made.
Which is it?

"Hardly stand up in court" - based on nothing

Or

"Or at least I hope not" - more accurate statement of you have no idea what your talking about.

It means it shouldn't but as the courts have frequently ruled contrary to the Constitution and common sense you never know

The letter appears to be a simple reminder to tenants of an existing rule ( handbook 11) was referenced.

No - your reply was directly related to legally seizing a vehicle and use of force to prevent that.

As to the OP - most multi-family lease, Rules & Regulations may be amended with 30 days notice after the initial lease term, some during the lease term. Check your local/state laws. IMO - such can be very enforceable.

I would suggest that facts speak louder than rants and unnecessary slurs, neither of which has any application to the OP's query and is in direct violation of Rule #6.
Don't they also have to let you out of your lease if you refuse to accept the changes?

Probably not - but they also most likely will not renew the lease when it expires.

As has been mentioned repeatedly it all depends on state law whether or not this notice actually becomes effective 30 days from receipt or not. So far I'm pretty much seeing it does, as well as seeing the OP relying on some verbal statement(s) from someone who probably does not have authority to make such pronouncements that the OIP will be OK in spite of what is on paper.

You can lead a horse to water, but even after whaling away at its head and shoulders with a 2x4 you cannot always make it drink.

stay safe.

Normally if you hold over w/o giving notice to vacate you have accepted the terms.

That being said, someone suggested earlier that this was not a new rule/regulation, but simply pointing out one already existing.

I would try to leave, send notice to vacate, I want my deposits back, I never agreed to this, etc etc

Most landlords never push the firearm issue anyway. But if my apartment came up with that as a new rule I would ask for my deposits back and vacate....
