Maintenance said they couldn't find any leak. My walls are really bad in both the bedroom and bathroom. I have videos and pictures of the damage this leak has caused. They have yet to inform me of how they are going to fix this. I'm worried about black mold and my health. What exactly... View More
A lot more information would be very helpful. How long have you lived there? Do you have a fixed term lease or is it month-to-month? Would you want to move out, or do you want to stay and only want the problem fixed? Are you the sole occupant and tenant? How soon do you want the problem fixed?...View More
My lease will expire on June 30th, 2019. I have a great deal, renting the house. This is my sixth year living here. I am in escrow to buy my own house and need to break the lease. My very good friend wants to take over my current lease and even sign new year lease contract if necessary but I... View More
First point: When you have a problem involving your lease, always talk to your landlord first. He wants a tenant occupying the premises. The logical solution is to get a new tenant to take over. You thought of that - why not tell the landlord? I am sure he would be relieved to know he does not...View More
You have a choice. If you stay beyond the notice period, you have impliedly agreed to the rent increase, and you must continue to pay your current rent on time. If you fail to do so, he could send you a three-day Notice to Quit or Pay rent. If you do...View More
Basic fact: You can negotiate anything! Your franchise agreement probably has a provision for early termination, including probably a liquidated damages clause. That would require you to make a payment to get out of the deal, depending on you are in the process. A liquidated damages clause ins...View More
I moved into a rental property on 11/1/2017 with a year lease. On 9/27/2018 I received a letter from the property management company verifying my lease was being extended and my rent was being raised. On 10/3/2018 I received an email notifying me to move out by 10/31/2018 - giving me less than 30... View More
No, because you actually had I year's notice, right? He did not need to give you additional notice. If you wish to stay, you will have to pay his revised rent. You might try contacting him with a counter offer -- spit the difference between his new rent and your current. If you want to add...View More
Cal law requires the landlord to notify you, 24 hours in advance, of the day, time and purpose of his requested visit. It is also required to be in writing. You can waive any of those requirements, but if he does not comply you do not have to let him in.

You will need an attorney to protect your interests -- if you actually have any interest in the house. Among the issues you will have to provide info on: who paid the down payment? Who paid the monthly loan payment? WHo paid the taxes and insurance? I presume you are taking care of the...View More
First thing you do is give the landlord 30 days notice that you are not moving in and for him to get another tenant. Your obligation to pay rent ends 30 days after that. The landlord must make efforts to find another tenant. If he is unable to find another tenant within 30 days, he cannot...View More
The answer to that lies in the Rules and Regulations governing the apartments, copy of which you presumably have. If you do not have them, ask for them. There have been numerous cases involving HOAs and homeowners over parking restrictions, and they would probably be relevant here.
You have not said why he is evicting you. To answer the question whether it is legal, ask yourself: What is my relationship to this landlord? Do I have a contract with him? If not, what right do I have to remain in the house?
Have no idea what a "sportsmens incorporated" is. I probably is not a corporation. Might be a fictitious name that an individual or a partnership is operating under. With more information, including what it is hour are trying to accomplish, an answer might be forthcoming from someone.
You need to explain what you mean by "forcing". If you signed a contract with that provision as a condition of being hired, you are probably bound to abide by your contract. Before fighting the provision, I suggest you think about it. Might be a good idea to consult an attorney on the...View More
The request to charge us for the window repair was requested by the owner of the unit. We provided proof (police report) when the vandalism happened. At the time, we were asked to go through our renters insurance for the window repair. Our renters insurance didn't cover damage to the unit,... View More
Review our rental agreement. It probably lists your obligations regarding repairs or damage. It usually requires the tenant to pay for damage caused by the tenant or his guests. You have proof it was not your fault. The owner must repair the window in order to maintain "habitable"...View More
Never thought about that before, but it sounds like an eminently sensible thing to do. If you want to assume liability for any damage cause by your ex, then you may refuse entry on the clear understanding that you will be responsible for all the damage, even if your deposit will not cover it all,...View More
Yes. Assuming you have a written invoice and that it was due in 30 days from receipt. it is classified as a written contract. You must have filed a court action within 4 years from the date the tuition was sue. When in doubt, give a few days extra. If a payment for less than the amount due was...View More
