The good news is that your lease probably has the answers to your question. There is a written notice requirement for any change in a written lease. However, I would need to see your lease to advise you better. I believe you are good for this month, but next month you will probably need to comply...Read more »

I live in a complex that is owned by an LLC. The registered agent for the LLC is also the on-site property manager. When filing evictions instead of paying the filing fees she submits an Affidavit of Inability to Pay. She is not included as a plaintiff in the suit. Only the LLC is listed as... Read more »
You have raised a serious question. I woould like to see the Affidavit filed requesting a waiver of the filing fee. If the LLC is owned by the person filing for the fee waiver, it might be allowed. But if the LLC is not a little mom & pop business, and they have many units, it might be fraud....Read more »

First, be aware that the wholesale value of a diamond ring that costs $12,000 is probably in the range of $2,000 to $3,000 and almost certainly less than $7750 even if they are unworn rings from Tiffany in the original packaging. The appraised value certificate they give you for insurance purposes...Read more »

No, you cannot be charged a pet fee or pet cleaning fee for using a service animal. You are correct that the only fee that can be charged is for any damage caused by the service animal. You cannot be asked to remove your service animal unless it is out of control or is not housebroken. A service...Read more »
This is a sticky situation. If you live at the house, you can invite anyone to come see you. However, I would not expect them to "hang out" at the house. You would need them to only stay in your room. Thus, they can come pick you up, or visit you in private, but to do so is asking for...Read more »

No, the landlord has no authority to hold property belonging to someone else. Go show him whatever documents you have showing that the 4 wheeler belongs to you, and pick it up. If he won't release it, you can sue for conversion - small claims court will have jurisdiction over claims of less...Read more »

Yes their are repairs that need to be done..but i feel those are thing the landlord should fox like the water does not come out the tub or sink in 1 bathroom and the ceiling fan in the living room went out and these things have been broken for years
Most won't do it, but renewing a lease is entering into a new contract. With a new contract, everything is up for negotiation. Of course, the deposit does not apply to the repairs; it applies to cover damage to the property by the tenant.
Look here for a detailed description of how...Read more »

I do not know how a property would be "accidently" put in your name, or how anyone could sell property (by auction or otherwise) that they had already transferred to someone else. Take your contract, payment records and any notices you received to a lawyer for review.
