No Lease with Landlord - What to show instead?

7 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hello,

 

Starting to gather the documents for our i-751 filing.

 

We don't have a lease with our landlord, but pay them month to month rent. So instead of a lease, what proof can we send with ROC?

 

We pay him with a paycheck from our joint bank account every month - so I guess I could print the check images for the past 2 years.


1. Spouse 1 went through Diversity Lottery Green Card and Citizenship application processes 

2. Spouse 2 went through K1 (I-129F) and AOS (I-485) processes

3. ROC (I-751) window for Spouse 2 opens in Jan 2019

Will your landlord give a letter stating you both occupied the residence?  Copies of the checks will help.....along with other documents showing you both at the same address......

Not a very responsive landlord. Always MIA.

 

We can show bank statements for the same address for the past ~2 years. We can show DL's from the same address. 2 years of Tax Returns from the same address.

Insurance documents?  Healthcare proxy statements?  Credit cards?

You should be okay with these (and other documents as mentioned)---I didn't have a lease either when doing the ROC, nor a statement from the landlord

And you can always state in your cover letter that you do NOT have a formal lease, and point them to your bank statements and checks instead.  Better to tell them it will NOT be included instead of them deciding it is "missing" and issue an RFE.
