San Miguel de Allende landlord tenant

Can't Post | Private Reply
Hola,

I'd like to find an English translation of landlord tenant law in Guanajuato state. Any possibility?

I'm looking at a contract that basically says I have no recourse for major repairs. Should I sign?

If that means you are responsible for any and all repairs, I would not sign it.
I don't know the law in Guanajuato state, but in most states the landlord is responsible for all repairs except any damage caused by the tenant.

Why was my reply, posted earlier today, deleted?

Oops. I see now where it went--this is what I said:

Is the lease you are reading the standard form available at a papelerķa (paper goods store), or is it a lease that your prospective landlord drew up? If it is the former, that clause is standard, but you may be able to negotiate with your prospective landlord for different terms. Commonly, those different terms are that the tenant will be for any repairs under XX amount and the landlord will pay for repairs that cost more than that set amount.

If the lease was drawn up by your prospective landlord or his/her attorney, the chance of negotiating different terms is still possible but less probable.
