The landlord and owner are unwilling to make repairs that are needed and also the listing of the house was for $2,000.00 per month but they want to charge $2,100.00 per month. Is our deposit refundable?
If you have not signed a lease, then it doesn't sound like you have a deal, and should not be paying a deposit. If there is no lease signed, and you have not even reached an oral agreement (there are still issues about the amount of rent and repairs to be done) then any deposit you've...Read more »
My friend wants me to give them Bitcoin in order for them to buy drugs online. I will not ever see these drugs or partake in them, I would simply just give the money to my friend so that they can buy drugs online. Will I get in any trouble for doing this?
A dispute with the property manager won't be enough to evict you. I suspect there is more to the situation, but without knowing the basis of the eviction and more facts, it's impossible to say what defenses you may have.
As, they told us they would be home in 10-15 mins so we told them we put the dog in the backyard with his things and water. Told them we had to get going because it was late. They are now saying since we put the dog in the backyard that it’s animal cruelty and their going to call the police on us.
They never told me I had to sign anything. I gave them notice. They also accepted my keys. I’m not longer in Texas. They are now emailing me saying I owe them 60 days rent and they cannot accept keys before hand yet they already did.
You may want to send them a copy of your notice, along with written confirmation of when the keys were turned in. Hang onto a copy of the lease, your notice, and evidence of paying rent, as you may need these to defend a claim against you for the unpaid rent.
Mid year, I withdrew my daughter from a private catholic school in Texas. I did so for personal reasons that didn’t involve her behavior or conduct. I enrolled her in public school and she finished the year with straight A’s. Early June I received an email from the schools soccer coach inviting... Read more »

I foster (now used to foster) for a 501c3 dog rescue group. A dog was posted that needed a foster and I went and picked up from the ex-owner that was surrendering her. HOWEVER, the surrender form was never signed. The rescue wanted to give it to another foster that I did not believe it was the best... Read more »
It depends on the terms of the agreement, but without a written agreement that gives you a security interest in the dog to secure payment, you can't. Your only remedy would be to sue in the Justice of the Peace court for the unpaid balance.
Was given an appointment for sept 23 and I'm trying to teach my son to drive before he leaves for school in August. I'm unable to sit and wait hours because of my job How is everything else open but public service
Everything is open except "public service" (aka government jobs) because they make the rules. Welcome to government. You can teach your son to drive without them, but you'll need to deal with DPS to get him a license. The good news is that if he's old enough to drive,...Read more »
While giving the dog away was wrong, apparently this person has had the dog since 2009 - 12 years, or most of the dog's life. Get a divorce or don't but I think the time for arguing about who has the dog has long passed.

The property owners (your mother and aunt) both have rights to use the property, which include the right to lease it out. If there's a written lease, that will govern who can evict you and why. If there's not, you're a month to month tenant, and the oral lease agreement can be...Read more »
It's not clear how the cases are related, but if you've gotten an eviction notice, you're going to want to 1) plan on moving, 2) see if you can work things out with the landlord, or 3) go to court to try to fight the eviction. Your description does not provide enough information to...Read more »
