Q: In a 55+ community, can a landlord have a bolt lock on the front door that can only be accessed inside & out w/ a key?

That is the only lock on the front door - the doorknob does not have a lock. The only other doors are sliding glass doors that open to walled-in patios. In case of an emergency, tenant must locate the key to unlock the front door.

Q: Rented house for 24 months @ $4,250/month, but landlord is increasing rent $127/month just 12 months in. Can he do that?

My lease clearly says "Tenant agrees to pay $4,250 per month for the term of the Agreement." And, "This Agreement shall terminate on May 31, 2020." Can I fight this? Is there anything I should be aware that he could do if I don't pay the increase?

Manuel Alzamora Juarez answered on May 23, 2019

Provided that there is no other clause authorizing your landlord to increase rent , then he may be on breach of contract. Best regards.

Q: I was hit by a drunk driver but I did not have insurance, do I have any rights to sue the guy that hit me?

I have the police report and he was found to be at fault. He has no insurance and no license and was on probation for two prior dui convictions.

Manuel Alzamora Juarez answered on Apr 7, 2019

Yes, you can sue him but if he and you did not have insurance then you will just be wasting your time. There will not be any recovery. You should talk to the D.A., maybe he can get him off the road. Just as an afterthought, were you living with a relative or by yourself? Best of luck.
