Conveniently Lost

Posted on Tue, Jun 14, 2011 at 11:18 AM

Where do I start with this one? I can't name names because it is still an ongoing issue at the moment. My situation goes back to a year ago, I am renting an apartment from a big rental agency here in HRM. As per their instructions and the residential tenancies act of Nova Scotia, I gave a 3 month written notice to transfer my yearly lease to a month to month lease. Then a year later, I gave a written notice of 30 days to end my month to month lease. Following all the rules and taking the necessary steps. Or at least I thought I was doing all the proper steps, but then I received notice that there is no record of my request to switch my yearly lease to a month to month. Therefor holding me responsible for another 3 months rental. I delivered the letter to my landlord and even have a witness who saw me doing it. They continue to insist that there is nothing they can do because they "don't have any record". My landlord even said to me, when I handed them my 30 day notice to end my lease, that they thought I was on a month to month lease. I'm in a he said/she said ordeal here. Has anyone gone through this or have any advice? —What Now
