Assuming you are in Oregon, IF the statute of limitations is up, then no, they can no longer forcibly collect a debt from you and may well be committing an Unfair Debt Collection Practice and/or a Fair Debt Collection Practices Act (i.e. both State and Federal potential violations). BUT if they...View More
The tickets were being sold for outrageously high prices and there were third party tickets being sold on the Ticketmaster site with those high prices. When I attempted to buy a ticket the prices were not in my means. I kept returning to the website hoping for a price drop and the pop up msg on the... View More
You don't identify why you think you have a claim. They routinely disclose that some of their tickets are being re-sold at higher than initial venue prices and may change at any time. You waited, then you pounced, only to find that you would have been better off waiting longer. That was a...View More
You can sue her in court for the return of your pet or for monetary damages. How much it will cost is impossible to know. With a bit of planning, you might be able to put her on the hook for your attorney's fees and costs but there is no guarantee ahead of time.
Yes they can charge you for utilities that benefit other tenants or common areas IF they tell you so in a written lease, tell you the formula used to determine the amount, etc. They also have timing and disclosure requirements. Check out ORS 90.315 for the statutory requirements. I question whether...View More
Being a GSD dog is irrelevant to this situation. You are vulnerable to being sued and your dog is likely subject to being restricted henceforth. Depending where this occured, your dog may be required to be muzzled and leashed whenever not inside your house, possibly have a secure kennel installed,...View More
You need to read the lease very carefully but it is unlikely. First, there is a 1 year statute of limitations on most claims arising out of a rental agreement. Second, if utilities are billed by the provider to the landlord, and the landlord intends to bill them on, in part or whole, to the tenant,...View More
As long as the tenant has been there for less than a year and they are on a month to month tenancy, a landlord is free to terminate their tenancy without cause by serving the appropriate notice(s). Whether 30 days or 90 days notice is required depends where the rental is located, as is any...View More
I signed a document under duress during a bipolar episode which my doctor can verify.

You are not likely to be able to disavow the contract and even if you did, it sounds like it cannot be reversed at this point. The most you are likely to possibly have is a claim for the market value of your now deceased cat - i.e. replacement cost. Unfortunately, in the legal world, pets are not...View More
I have lived in my apartment for two months now and recently told the landlord about a massive amount of black mold we found in our bathroom that was not disclosed to us before we moved in. My wife got sick and one of the diagnosis was possible black mold in the house. I checked the house... View More
No. A landlord can only get rid of you with advanced written notice. How much notice depends upon what grounds he has to terminate your tenancy. It is unlawful to terminate your tenancy out of retaliation for complaints and the Sheriff can only throw you out after a Judge orders it. If the landlord...View More
First, only a landlord can terminate a tenancy - your roommate has no more right to end it than you do to end his. Second, a landlord can only terminate your tenancy with written notice. How much written notice depends on the reason. If for cause, such as failure to pay rent or breach of lease, it...View More
My ex was very violent. Me and my current got in a very heated argument and I went into fight or flight because of ptsd. My current restrained me during the incident and some bruising was caused because of my struggle. I called the cops while still in a hysterical ptsd state of mind. I have mental... View More
Sorry but it is not up to you whether the charges are dropped or if the District Attorney proceeds to trial and attempts to get a criminal conviction. Actions have consequences - both for you and for him. You can talk to his criminal defense attorney if you wish to see what, if anything, you can...View More
Tree was damaged from ice storm. Split from 10' above ground to ground. Afraid it would fall threw bedroom roof. Told Management and they sent me phone # to get estimate. The estimate stated it was urgent that the tree needed to be removed ASAP to prevent other structural damage to property.... View More
You obviously were concerned about your safety. Nevertheless you had no right to remove the tree - that was the landlord's right - and obligation - not yours or your decision to make. If you believed the tree posed a serious risk, you could\should have have requested the City to inspect and if...View More
A landlord cannot increase a security deposit in the first year of a tenancy, absent a modification of the rental agreement and consent of the tenant (e.g. a pet is added during the first year and the landlord wants an increased security deposit to cover potential pet damages). After the first...View More
I sold a used truck as is(says as is on the bill of sale.) he is now saying he took it to a mechanic a few days later and it had an engine misfire and now he wants to sue for his money back. I was unaware of the problem. I don’t know what to do next. Is this something he will win?
It is unclear why the buyer thinks they are entitled to a refund and lots depends on exactly what was said before the sale and\or details but As Is means As Is and anything could have happened to the vehicle in the few days between purchase and inspection. Bottom line is buyer should have had...View More
BF bosses wife's family owns these. We never have had a rental agreement. Why do my Grandson n I need to move? Why in 4 days? There's no way possible for me to get to stay? I didn't give my notice. They try n say they rented to the Bf. But we both have lived here from day one without... View More
First, you have indeed had a rental agreement but it may have only been verbal, which makes it difficult for either side to prove the exact terms. If BF moved out voluntarily, his exit likely terminated the tenancy for both of you. If, however, he left due to domestic violence, you may be entitled...View More
If he is going to claim an emergency, he has to notify you in writing within 24 hrs that he came in, when, and what the emergency was. If he did not, you likely have a claim against him, probably worth a month's rent plus court costs and attorney's fees. If you think you have a claim,...View More
We are not on a contract or lease; we are month to month. We have paid and fixed all involved with the home for almost 8 years the Landlord has not maintained the home we have which is fine for minor things but we had to pay for people to come out to look under our home for rats and they fixed the...

The question is not whether you can afford it (though that obviously is the bottom line) but what do you owe? If you really do owe $3600 or more, and cannot work out a payment plan with the landlord, he can proceed to try to evict you for non-payment. His 10 day notice must be legally compliant...View More
You have no right to terminate a fixed term lease before the lease termination date unless it is for cause. It is, after all, the whole point of a fixed term - both sides are assured of maintaining the situation for the length of the lease. If they are willing to voluntarily move, that is...View More
Doesn't matter if new person has only owned the dog for 2 minutes; is there something about selling the dog you don't understand? IF the buyer wants to sell it back to you, at whatever price you both agree upon, they can. But you have no right to demand or force it and they are free to...View More
Had to remove everything from room. Residents cannot be left unattended. Must empty buckets constantly. So doesn’t go to lower level. He won’t reduce rent. He actually raised my rent wife and I have been sick more . We has a mold guy here we have mold.
It sounds as if you may have claims for reduced rent value, possibly mold damages as well. If desired, with written notice to the landlord, you may have rights to move to alternative housing at the landlord's expense above your rent. Consider reviewing everything with a landlord-tenant attorney.
