Did Joseph look it down my receipts or none of the records that I had subpoenaed to court neither
It’s been almost a year since I signed this lease and she is just now telling me that I can’t rent to own. I want to know if my lease says rent to own shouldn’t they have to honor it?
Hello, My family and I are dealing with new owner to the Mobile Home Park we've lived in about 15 years. We own our home but rent the lot. Long story short. They came and threw away thousands of dollars of items and even things on my front porch but left most of the trash. They also towed 2... Read more »
They pay utilities but utilities aren't on their name either
Complex never provided dates of incidents of marijuana usage, or loud disturbances, did not contact police and never even made an attempt to communicate with their neighbor regarding noise or marijuana use. No one in the apartment smokes marijuana but did have visitors to smoke cigars. After... Read more »
The lease ended 8 months ago so we have been paying month to month since then. Now my mother has been staying with me and my landlord is trying to evict us because terms of a lease. We haven't been on a lease in 8 months. I stay at my boyfriend's house 3 or 4 nights a week and she is now... Read more »

The question is premised on an improper understanding of the legal status of "month to month". it is not correct that you do not have a lease. You do have a lease, when a written lease expires without being renewed, it typically becomes a month-to-month tenancy, subject to all the same... Read more »
I have lived in the same apartment for 2+ years and have never missed a rent payment. This week the landlord left a notice on the door stating we have a rent payment due from last July and have 10 days to pay it. I am certain I paid rent that month, as I never miss a rent payment. However, I have... Read more »
This has been going on almost 6 months now. Have been consulting with Legal Services Alabama. But it seems we've reached an impasse. My biggest concern is whether apartment management will replace any items that must be discarded. But they're refusing to do that. And my renters insurance... Read more »

This is something that an Alabama attorney is best suited to advise about, but your question remains open for two weeks. I'm sorry for your ordeal with the mold and the mold-induced asthma. At this point, you could reach out to injury attorneys who handle mold cases. Each state can have... Read more »

For better and more specific answers to your questions you should contact an attorney directly in your area and provide him a copy of your lease agreement. An apartment complex would not be permitted to violate the Alabama Code regarding its responsibilities to tenants.

I would suggest contacting an attorney to go over the specifics of your case in detail. A landlord has a duty to provide you both legal and actual possession of a property. Having prior tenants living there would violate that duty.

If you have not already I would send a letter to your landlord making a specific request for your deposit back, and if they refuse an accounting of the defects they allege account for not returning said deposit. Give a time limit to respond. You may want to send it certified mail so that you can... Read more »

My alabama home lease mentions nothing about breaking the lease early, does that mean they can't charge me for breaking the lease early?
answered on Jan 13, 2021
No it does not. And the lessor can probably sue you for breach of contract for the remaining rent to be paid under the lease.
He is harrassing me to get out and says that I am a tresspasser but refuses to fire me, pay me, or give me a 30 day written notice to vacate although the Huntsville Police told him to do just that. He refuses to let me put the utilities in my name and he willfully let the utilities to be turned... Read more »

Good grief! You need to hire a lawyer immediately! If you can’t afford one go to your nearest legal aide office! And good luck!
I have brought it to their attention, the attention of the police, I have endured a large incessantly barking dog who has barked for hours at times and romps and runs above my ceiling. This is the security officer for the complex and I have endured it for eight months. I am a reasonable person.... Read more »

No you may not. What you can do is file a suit against your neighbor for a nuisance. But if the landlord allows pets then there is probably nothing you can do about it, except get a money damage and to do that you have to prove damages, like lost wages, emotional distress and having to be...

I have been trying for two years to get my landlord to fix my leaky roof (among other serious issues). She finally hired some *cheap* people to replace it. One of the guys fell through the roof and now there is a GIANT hole in our ceiling. Her response was very unconcerned and just said, "well... Read more »

No you must give notice to vacate. But take lots of pictures and put everything in writing. Good luck.
I live in the state of Alabama, my dad passed away and his landlord that he rented a lot from for his mobile home is trying to sue me. He is trying to sue me for back rent and property cleanup can he do this legally?
answered on Oct 1, 2020
If you are the executor of your fathers estate he can. Also remember anyone can be sued. Whether or not they win is another story. If you were not on the lease agreement it is highly unlikely they will win. However you must defend the lawsuit. If you do nothing, they can get a judgement against... Read more »
i am purchasing a house directly through the owner and I didn't get a loan we just agreed on the payments. he takes half of the payments and puts it towards the interest and I don't understand how or if if it is legal.

Unless you have a Deed and have given him a Mortgage, you have purchased nothing. That is called a Lease and you are subject to a quick Eviction, not lengthy Foreclosure. Hire a competent attorney to analyze your situation. Either buy it or leave. Do not just lease thinking you are, or will... Read more »
