Im curious if I rent a house with three other people and one of the people invites a person onto the property that isnt wanted on the property by the other tenants am I rightfully allowed to tell said person to vacate the property?
When you rent an apartment or house with others, all of you lease 100% of the premises. Your housemate has every right to invite someone to the property; you have every right to not allow it. Its a housemate issue. Now, if this person causes a problem such that his or her continuing presence is the...Read more »
You are required by law to be represented by an attorney in your capacity as personal representative of your moms estate. If you have not retained a probate attorney, do it now before you do anything else. He or she will advise on what needs to be done.
Elevator has been out of order periodically my whole tenancy here, but recently it has been out of order for 90 days maybe more. I have fallen and hurt myself multiple times and almost fall down a flight of stairs everytime I have somewhere to be,
The Landlord has every right to know who is living in the apartments, and has decided that since she lives there, that she needs to be legally responsible, along with you, for the rent. If you elect to not comply, the LL may decide to evict you both; the mere filing of an eviction complaint can...Read more »
Yes, within reason. You don't have to give the LL carte blanche to bring people over anytime, but at the same time you probably cannot refuse every and all requests. Read your lease, there may be some reference to this situation.
Read your lease. Generally, usually, normally, late fees are considered rent and due along with the next rent payment. Let's say your October rent was $500. You paid late and were assessed a $50 late fee. Your November rent due is $550, not $500.
I am a single mom and a student full time, and looking for a part time job, I have had quite a few obstacles the last few years and I am trying to move forward. The bill is for 1200, and I can not pay it, maybe a payment plan. I just need some help and I do not know what else to do.
You didn't ask a question. The attorney will want you to pay the past due assessments and their attorneys fees so they don't file suit to foreclose the lien on your property. You can have your house sold underneath you if you don't get this taken care of. If you try to make a deal...Read more »
The easy answer is to do a quit claim deed from you to her and you. The much better answer, and the one that I urge you to follow, is to consult with an estate planning lawyer to make certain that not only is the transfer done properly, but that the transfer is done in light of any tax or other...Read more »
The only issue is whose name is on the Lease. Generally, landlords want the name of every adult residing in the rented space to be on the lease (meaning that all the adults are equally responsible to the landlord for the full amount of the monthly rent). If you executed a new lease and you are the...Read more »
My aunt is trying to have me evicted from my grandmother's property against her wishes. She forged her name as the plaintiff on the summons but filled out the details in her own name. That's what I wrote in my answer. However we had a hearing where my aunt gave the judge a paper I did not... Read more »
I was the partner of the deceased and also had a large financial investment in the home. The house was titled in both of our names, but unfortunately it was titled tenancy in common. I have approximately $300,000 invested and my late partner had approximately $5,000 invested. I would like to use... Read more »
I received a notice of cleaning or possession notice my landlord posted a letter stating I must clean the outside of my property or I will be evicted. My husband has a tree business we are staying at a small duplex but he has his trailers outside and other items we have as well. Out r backyard was... Read more »
It sounds like rent is not the issue, but the stuff outside. Generally usually, leases provide that the tenant must keep the outside of the rented property looking neat by specifying certain things that must be done or not be done. A duplex is not a place to keep the trailers that belong to a tree...Read more »
You didn't lose because the plaintiff had an attorney. You lost because you didn't have an effective or legal defense. Of course you can appeal but the likelihood of you prevailing is slim because eviction cases are creatures of statute. Statutes are narrowly construed (they mean what...Read more »
No. You have to remove people from your property using the law. Throwing away people's belongings, cutting off water, etc., is called "self-help" and is specifically prohibited. Hire an attorney to get rid of the squatters, and their junk, legally.
I have a judgment against me personally from 10 years ago (yes he renewed it). Since then I bought a property in an llc name. I'm now I'm refinancing and this judgment came up. The underwriter said it must be paid first. I don't understand.
When a judgment is recorded, the judgment attaches to the ownership interest in real property of the judgment debtor. You'll have to ask the underwriter these questions. Is it possible that the creditor recorded a lien against your LLC? Sure, it's possible, but unlikely. Otherwise, seek...Read more »
I have an outstanding collection from 2016 that is originally from an apartment complex. It was sold to a collection agency in Tampa. When I left that apartment complex, I wasn’t told that I owed any debt. I was never contacted even though my phone number never changed. I would have been easy to... Read more »
