Minor drinking at home

I live with my ex and her 16 year old daughter about 3 weeks ago the mother left the daughter in my care and went off to be with her boyfriend. The daughter and i went out and while out i bought her alcohol as she had purchased a drink mix and wanted to try it. We returned home and she tried it and didn't like it. we both went to our separate rooms for the night. The mother has requested I write a letter to state that I am to vacate the property by August 1 or she will file charges. we have a lease on the property until February of next year. On a previous occasion she had allowed her daughter to go to a friends house where the friend bought the daughter alcohol and her daughter had ended up with alcohol poisoning and she didn't do anything.

There are a few factors that come into play when one party is getting their name off of a lease - or being told to get their name off of a lease. More details are necessary to provide accurate advice.

Feel free to get in touch if there are any specifics that you would like to discuss. Our practice areas include criminal, human rights laws and landlord and tenant board issues. You can call and text me at 647-360-7182.
