I recently purchased a, fully furnished, mobile home, in the Roadrunner Mobile Home Park, and turned in my application for space rental, along with a money order for their, required, background check. While waiting for their decision, they went in to my home, and removed all furnishings, barred me... Read more »
Did you get a bill of sale when you purchased the mobile home so you can prove title?
If so, I would go to the local police station and report a breaking and entering and grand theft complaint. This is not a civil dispute at this point, it is a criminal matter. I would also go to the local...Read more »
For the last 13 years my lease has been the same regarding rules. I have to renew my lease again but on this lease my landlord has made changes but i was not told about these changes until the very second i was about to sign the lease renewal. Knowing about these changes could have prompted me to... Read more »
Yes, but your landlord's actions demonstrate either a lack of professionalism or bad faith. I suggest you tell the landlord you need time to consider the changes to the lease and hold over on your current lease. Then study the changes and see if they are fair and reasonable, given your...Read more »
My roommate is being evicted. We think that she might try to cause some trouble, i.e stealing our things, and stuff like that. Her boyfriend recently physically threatened our other roommate and so she is not comfortable with him around. I don’t want her to try and bring him and his friends... Read more »
As a matter of real estate law, you have correctly assessed the situation. Your roommate has a legal right to enter the premises. He boy friend does not. If they do enter without permission they will commit a civil trespass. They may also commit a criminal trespass, especially if you tell them...Read more »
Your landlord is incorrect. The obligation to clean the premises is your obligation not to hire landlords. if your landlord wishes for you to vacate so he may assume the cleaning obligation then you need to amend the lease to reflect this. Otherwise you can remain on the premises through the last...Read more »
Either a valid legal reason or an agreement for early termination with the landlord. Check your lease to see if the landlord has breached any of the provisions. If so, you may have a basis for termination. If not, then you will need to negotiate your way out of the lease. The first thing to...Read more »

First you need to hire a lawyer in Missouri. Most likely, the attorney will have to file a declaratory judgment action seeking an order from the court establishing the identities of the proper title holders today.
Will run credit check on new roommate and get new rental agreement. How handle security deposits to wife and new tenant, since property not vacant to do proper inspection for return of deposit to wife and husband?
I assume the lease is in the name of both the husband and the wife. You need to enter into a new lease agreement where you require as a condition to renting the payment of a new security deposit. You then need a letter of instruction signed by both the husband and the wife as to how to return the...Read more »
Just got the new lease to sign for a rental we want to rent... but I don't like the amendment to the lease sated above .Tenant agrees to pay the first One Hundred Fifty Dollars ($150) of any structural, plumbing, electrical, or
appliance repairs that may arise as a matter of course, during... Read more »
Neither do I. It is not commercially common and I suggest you strike the language. Perhaps a compromise would be repair and deduct from rent. Tenant agrees to pay the first $150 of any structural, plumbing, electrical etc. and tenant may deduct any payments made from the next month's rent.
Most residential leases obligate the tenant to return the premises to landlord at the end of the lease term in the condition in which it was originally leased, subject to normal wear and tear. You need to read the "surrender" clause in your lease to see what condition the premises must be in at...Read more »
Landlords are not allowed to discriminate against Tenants in rental housing based upon race, creed, gender, or national origin. They can decline to rent to someone based upon the number of people who may be living in the unit.
A breach of contract was at the heart of the case. The judge stated the tenant overpaid and did not owe (on the court reporter record) yet Judge ruled against tenant. I requested a new trial paid attorney fees but was never given the new trial and was forced to move in 4 days. I believe my... Read more »
Sounds to me like you were given conveyor belt justice. What has happened in California State Courts is atrocious. The State has cut the budget of the judicial system to the bone at the same time that court case volume keeps increasing. The Judges do not have the time or resources to really...Read more »
As a practical matter, HOA's do not like to exercise foreclosure rights against owners. It is not neighborly and it is expensive. You need to contact the HOA officers immediately and negotiate a business resolution in the form of a payment plan. It is most likely that they will insist upon going...Read more »

First of all, you do not say whether there was a will. If there was, then the will determines who gets what. If there was no will and the property was not included in the assets of the inter vivos trust, then the law of intestate succession determines who gets what and this law will govern your...Read more »
