Do they know that you are not going to renew the lease yet? You should let them know sooner rather than later.....don't know what the state law is in MA.
Big maturity difference between grad and undergrads.
I wouldn't fight over the AC units personally if they bought them.
I grew up in MA so I know.....the climate used to be such that you only really needed AC a week or so in the summer. When I moved south my car didn't have one either. In GA I can't imagine being without.
I have calmed down and I am not going to quibble about their AC's.
MA state law requires a 60 day notice. However, in my lease there is a clause that gives a 90 day notice. The timeframe states June 1st - June 30th for notification of renewal. Lease end date Aug 31st. Which at that time a new lease would be signed at my leasing agent's office before June 30th. My lease is not a automatic renewal. They were sent the non-renewal letter via certified mail by my lawyer for delivery on June 1st that the lease wasn't going to be renewed. In Jan, my lawyer sent them a letter threating with eviction of a lease violation and they signed for it without any problems. Also, I would think if they really wanted to renew the lease they would have told us by now or their parents would have notified us by now since the parents pay the rent and utilities. The parents have a copy of the lease also. In April, one of the tenants asked what will happen with the oil if it isn't used. Her oil bill for March was very high. My wife told her that when they vacate the premises in Aug, any overage of oil they will be reimbursed. Which is clearly stated in the lease. They asked a similar question a week later. Reiterate what my wife said again about them vacating the premises in Aug. Oil is expensive and they & their parents signed a lease that they are repsonsible for heating the apt. After my wife told them that they have become extremely quiet.
I have seen all three tenants almost everyday since June 1st and they haven't said a word to me about the lease. But I can't go on what they are thinking. I covered my butt in regards to notifiying them in the time frame that I was suppose to per the lease agreement.
