When we moved in, my apartment came with a microwave that is built in under the cabinets above the stovetop. The appliance tripped the breaker in the wall, and now the microwave as well as the exhaust fan (as the fan is built into the microwave) is not working. We reached out to maintenance and...

If your microwave isn't working it's obviously because the NEC Code requires a dedicated circuit now for a microwave. The apartment manager gave you a contract, did you read it? If it said that you could plug in your own microwave oven, then you're in good shape. However, Idaho... Read more »
Landlord won't refund a non refundable $400 carpet cleaning/cleaning fee, but allowed one of the original parties on my lease to sign a new lease without having to move out, and never cleaned the carpets or cleaned the property.
answered on Jan 2, 2023
The ONLY deposits which are NOT refundable in Idaho are those Security Deposits. A Security Deposit is one sum of money deposited to guarantee the payment of rent. All other deposits are refundable, if say, the cleaning bill was for $180.00 and the LL charged you a $300 deposit, you are due a... Read more »
a water meter installed a few months after they took over. The installer took my heat tape off the water pipe. Last week the installed assembly froze, now the land lord want's me to pay for the repair. The installer did not do quality work as relaiyed to me by the repairing plummer.

The Idaho law on landlord/lessor law is that the lessor must provide you with water, power and heat. If the new owner wants to do away with the internet due to whatever reason, that's his prerogative. You should speak to the new park manager and document the damage to the assembly and ask...

My mom's ex is abusive towards her and my sisters. She "left him" but he still comes over. She's been charging my sisters rent. They are over 18. Do they then have a say in whether or not he's allowed at the house if the are paying rent? They feel unsafe with him around but... Read more »

Well, is sounds like you're asking this, correct me if I'm wrong:
Your parents were divorced. You are out of the house now but your sisters are still living with your mother, who apparently is a co-owner of the house that you and your mom's ex, owned?
If your... Read more »
4 of us roommates moved into a 4 bedroom house. We are all around 21-25 tears of age. The house is pretty big and we had an empty space to fill so we bought a ping pong table. Well the landlord saw and re received a message saying the ping pong table needed to be removed as it can damage walls and... Read more »
Okay so I'm renting a room right now as part of a larger single unit home. One of my housemates has some really bad klepto tendencies and I've had to take a lot of my stuff back from him and out of his room after he stole them from my room. Am I allowed to change the lock on my door... Read more »

I recommend that you contact the LL. He has some liability if things from a "guest" are stolen by someone else who is his "guest," so I think he should be consulted, but you DO have the right to change your lock, as long as you let your LL know.
out the property. In fact he has rented it out to his stepson in spite of the objections of the other 2 siblings, one of which needs the finances. What can be done?

Idaho law provides you an opportunity to sue to "partition" or "buy out" an unwilling owner of their share. You need to tell the remaining, unwilling owner, that if you have to sue to make her sell her "interest," that you will be asking the Court to award your... Read more »

Yes. Father is the "homeowner" and the spouse is a "guest" and so is daughter, so be nice!

It depends. Were you renting from them? Did you pay them rent and have an actual rental contract? Probably not. Therefore, it's a "mom & dad" thing, huh?

The Mother's Heirs-At-Law are now the owners of the Home by operation of law. Those Heirs have standing to file an Eviction Action for Possession. Hire an attorney to determine heirship and sue for possession.
i was threatened by a neighbor, saying he was going to shoot me, i told the manager and he refused to give me money back.
answered on Jul 16, 2020
Probably not. You have a contract that is between yourself and the Extended Stay Hotel, Inc. If you get a copy of that contract and read the fine print, it probably says that your failure to pay when due is a breach of contract and may not have any exceptions such as "neighbors who threaten...

This is an easy answer. BYU Idaho is a private college. They didn’t have to invite you to attend but they did. You accepted their rules. If you want to now pick and choose which of their rules you’ll obey then my guess is that you’ll be expelled very soon! If you could prevail with a... Read more »
Over and they could not see any either. I took pictures but my phone got stolen. When I moved out I gave her a demand letter which she did not respond to. She never gave me a letter telling me why she was keeping my deposit. She also never kept my deposits in a separate account. Regarding my... Read more »

It is the security deposit that landlords are NOT entitled to keep. If your contract HAS a provision for a pet deposit, the landlord’s keeping it COULD BE a pitifully slow way for her to build her fortune, one pet deposit after another! But I doubt that. Instead I think that your dear pet MSY... Read more »

Assuming you follow all of the notice to quit and related procedures, you probably can--but check with a local attorney to see if that's the law in your state and county.
We keep our parking / walking areas clear and de-iced but the main driveways into the park are an icy mess. If someone slides off, who is responsible? I'd think the park but can find no published law on the subject.

Look at your lease--in most cases they are the duty of the mobile home park. Problem is there are virtually no rules or enforcement regulations when they don't maintain common areas.
I'm 20, almost 21, have a job, going to college, was briefly in the military, came out, had nowhere to go, had to move back in with parents, I pay my mother 200$ a month in rent to live there and she tells me suddenly I can't lock my door because it's her house and disrespectful,... Read more »

You are a tenant-at-will (also known as a month-to-month tenant). Because you don't have a lease, your mother (as landlord) doesn't have to provide a lock on your door and normally you would need the landlord's permission to install one. If you do so anyway, she can evict you.... Read more »
