1. Question: Are email communications between tenant and landlord admissible in court?
Answer: Yes, emails can be admitted into evidence (if all rules of evidence are met), but emails should not be used to serve notices (other than as specifically allowed by law).
2. Question: When a month-to-month resident decides to vacate without any notice, do the owners have the right to charge for thirty days after the move-out to comply with their month-to-month agreement?
Answer: Yes, you can charge up to the time the premises are relet or thirty days from the date of their departure, whichever occurs first, so long as you make diligent attempts to relet the property.
