Thanks, Internet

Our new place is ready! We saw it today.

Clancy and I may be pulling the trigger on our month-to-month rental agreement one month earlier than the landlords demanded us out. The question I had was whether or not I could give notice tomorrow and not be stuck with rent all the way through March because thirty days takes us to February 1.

In an earlier age, I might have had to go to the library. Or maybe to the state capital. Or maybe I would have had to consult a lawyer.

In the Internet age, however, I can simply go to Arapaho’s website and see what, precisely, state code is as it pertains to rental agreements.

[X]-[Y]-[Z](2) The landlord or the tenant may terminate a month-to-month tenancy by giving to the other at any time during the tenancy at least 30 days’ notice in writing prior to the date designated in the notice for the termination of the tenancy.
(3) The tenancy terminates on the date designated and without regard to the expiration of the period for which, by the terms of the tenancy, rents are to be paid. Unless otherwise agreed, rent is uniformly apportionable from day to day.

There is, of course, nothing new about being able to do this. This sort of thing is widely regarded as what makes the Internet awesome. But today? Today I am feeling the love.

  1. Congrats! I hope that your move is stress free, or as close as you can come to stress free. I kinda like all this new fangled technology, too.

  2. Too bad about the old place, it was an awesome house.

    Say hey to the famdambily.

    • Will do. It’ll be interesting moving into a smaller place. Arguably, this house wastoo nice for us. I just wish it hadn’t worked out so that we’ll have to move twice this year.
