New to the forum, so hello everyone.
For the past few months I have been subletting a condo
from the main tenant, no contract. Just a guarantee from my employer.
Our verbal agreement was from Sept - Jan until I could find somewhere permanent.
I've since been reading that anything under 6 months is illegal, to prevent renting to tourists?
I have had a few issues with the main tenant, and until resolved have withheld the rent, but he is putting severe pressure on me to pay, saying he will tell my employer etc.
Is this let illegal? And is it my fault for not knowing this before? I have read the landlord can be fined up to 200k.
If push comes to shove i want to know that I can throw this at him.
