My dog bit a child and our landlord wants him out of our apartment. We don’t want to give him up and our landlord said she would give us a month before we must move. Is a month legally enough time? After the time frame what can our landlord do?
Can your landlord evict you because of your dog's actions? That depends on the language in the lease agreement. If he/she does pursue the eviction he'll have to prove that you violated the lease and/or he properly terminated (in writing) and his Notice is legally enforceable.
It is really impossible to answer your question based on the scant facts. You have been served with a lawsuit, even if the lawsuit is a loser (for the Plaintiff) you must answer and assert your defense. I recommend that you contact an attorney to review the facts of the first case and the...Read more »

This assessment is for a 20 unit fire that happened March 26, 2018 when we didn't even in own our home. Our insurance will not cover this assessment being we didn't have possession at the date of loss. Are we required to come out of pocket to pay this?
We moved out of the home we were renting last month and bought a home. Two days ago, the landlord emailed and gave us a written list of the walkthrough and how much of our security deposit we would be receiving. Today, we receive another email stating that they put a stop payment on the check... Read more »
The issues you bring are valid and likely defenses should this matter go to Court. I recommend you google the Colo Sec Dep Act as it provides stiff penalties for Landlords who do not properly handle and timely provide a written accounting of any security deposit amount withheld for damages.

I'll be contributing cash and she'll be securing the mortgage, but I'd also like to be on the deed. Can this be done without my name on the mortgage loan? Also, if I should die, can my 50% be automatically split between the child I co-own the property with and my other (adult) child? Is there a... Read more »
You definitely should be named on the Deed, to protect your investment. Yes, you can obtain a mortgage obligating only one individual but take title to the same property in the name of two individuals. You risk that you will be wiped out should the lender need to foreclose.

We paid a pet deposit, and pet rent every month the entire time of living there. I know there were... Read more »

Generally, carpet is expected to have a 7 year normal lifespan. As such, half of the useful life of the carpet was...Read more »
