I received a roof assessment of $3,060 early this year from the condo association where I own a condo unit (bought in November 2019). I've been been making payments of $255 each month since March 2020 (already sent $1,530) and decided to stop making payments this month of September due to no... Read more »
Your condo HOA association documents should spell everything out. In all likelihood, they can charge the fees so that the HOA has the money to pay the roofer, rather than start collecting money when the work starts.
I paid an attorney to handle this case. He obtained the judgement then told me that he couldn’t find her, even though she had attempted to see him. He admitted this to me, then later changed his story.
After I received the judgement, he told me that I was on my own as far as collection.... Read more »
Your judgment is good for 20 years. Apparently your agreement with him was to.obtain the judgment, which he did. You weren't taken advantage of, and there's nothing anyone can do to force someone to voluntarily pay a judgment. In fact, all your debtor has to do is file bankruptcy and...Read more »

Unless your lease requires him to provide AC, he is not required to fix your AC when it goes out. You have no right to fix things on your own without his written permission and then expect to be reimbursed. Same thing with the lawn. If the lease requires you to maintain the lawn, you have no reason...Read more »

Your dad should consult with his own attorney. You should not be involved because any legal advice that you pass along from a lawyer could be construed as you practicing law.

Me and my sister were never mentioned in my grandpa's will because we weren't blood related and his side of the family didn't like my mom, so it was a bit messy we group up with our grandpa and weren't even in his obituary. I have all the papers for the estate I'm owed and... Read more »
my landlord contacted me stating he has someone coming today for a home inspection, got a knock on the door and it wasn't a inspection at all, it was a woman that was told to come view the home for a potential sale.

Even so, if you think you have a case, you should consult a lawyer, but be prepared to be charged a hefty fee upfront if...Read more »
Is it your lease, or is it your daughter's lease with you as personal guarantor? (Big difference.) She can always move out, but there's probably no way for you or her to avoid the legal consequences of her doing so. You might want to take the lease to a lawyer in your town for a...Read more »
He has to give you 15 days before the end of the month for you to vacate. if he does, that's the end of the line for you. You have to leave or face eviction. It also doesn't matter why he wants you out.
It depends upon how many people live there and how many bedrooms there are. Also, if he requires her to be on the lease and she or you is refusing to put her on the lease, he can refuse on that basis as well.
You hire an attorney. If she had an agreement to pay rent, whether she did or not, makes a big difference and you cannot afford to screw it up, because the consequences can be a bitter pill to swallow if you are the landlord.
