State Specific Question About: MINNESOTA (MN)

My renter is leaving sept.1st. His lease is until August 15,08. It was a verbal agreement that he could stay until last day of august. I have work to do in apartment (bathrroom) it is skim coated and ready to be primed. I hired an older man to do the work.Was ready to prime at 4:30 yesterday afternoon. Would have taken two hours. renter got upset that my guy was working down there (I gave renter 24 hour notice. What is deemed as reasonable times to allow access to have work done during the day? Please reply asap. --96.42.xxx.xxx

If you verbally agreed to allow them to stay until the last day of August, why is he leaving September 1, 2008?

Are they paying a premium for these extra couple of weeks?

IMO 24 hours notice is sufficient for something like this especially when it appears to have been an on going project. However, I think work done in an occupied unit should be schedule between 8:00AM & 4:00PM or 9:00AM & 5:00PM. It appears as though your painter would be there until at least 6:30PM.

I guess you will learn at least 2 things from this.

1. Verbal agreements aren't worth much

2. No good deed goes unpunished. --72.85.xxx.xx

i would just wait until the guy is out.end of problem.state laws differ on this.try to get a copy of your landlord tenant laws.maybe there is a book on them in your state like we have.very useful.good luck --208.58.x.xx

You gave the tenant a 24 hour notice. In my county it's 7am to 7pm however my city it is 7am to 6pm This is what I would have told the tenant.

He will be there until 6pm. --71.108.xx.xx
