Without reading your lease it is hard to say.
RESIDENTIAL leases have an implied warranty of habitability, but that is not automatically the case with commercial leases. (Indeed, many say ‘as is’ and if that’s not good enough, tough. )
Get your lease to a local licensed... Read more »

If the money is still in your account, regardless of mistake, you would be wise to now pay it to prevent eviction.

I believe there’s a law in Michigan that the condo association has the post that there is lad, our mold in the buildings in the common area
answered on Mar 4, 2023
I believe you’re confusing rental property and condos. They are NOT the same thing, and the rules are distinct.
While there are FEDERAL rules about the disclosure of *LEAD* in both rentals and sales, there are no federal or state rules in Michigan about mold. For either condos or rental... Read more »
The leasing agency did a complex-wide inspection for pets. My apartment was inspected while I was not there, and I did not give permission. They claim to have sent six notices of the inspection to my email weeks beforehand, but I did not receive any emails about inspections. Is what they're... Read more »

They can enter only if there is proper notice that is usually defined in a provision within the lease, or if there is an emergency. For more information please see www.ProvenResource.com
We both signed the lease a week prior and I paid move in costs with a verbal agreement for him to pay me back for his half and he would cover his part of rent. Is there any way that I can hold him financially responsible as I was not planning on paying both parts of the rent?
There is a sentence in the lease that states I am responsible for ALL repairs.
answered on Feb 13, 2023
Without looking at the lease, it's a reasonable interpretation to assume "all repairs" include those not your fault.
I bought my house 2/2020 and put it up for sale 10/2020 not knowing this was not allowed as I have a RD loan- I used a Realtor and she wrote a bad land contract for the sale. The buyer does not pay as agreed and I want to do a forfeiture but don't trust myself to try alone and really... Read more »

The real estate agent and their broker may be responsible for writing a legal document as non -attorneys. With regards to your land contract being called due, lenders and banks usually have provisions in their mortgage that call a note due upon the conveyance of title. The issue is whether or not,...

Did you sign a lease that obligated you to pay rent for a period of time that extended past the date on which you moved out? I suspect that there was a lease, and it went through July 2018. If so, the fact that you notified the landlord of your intention to move probably makes no difference.
We moved out of our apartment 2 months ago. We did not get evicted just money owed and because my mom was a co-signer they are trying to come after her for u paid rent for $5000.

If a collection agency is involved, that means there is a judgment entered by a court. Your options for changing that judgment are few. The most cost-effective way forward is to contact the collection agency to work out a settlement.
My 17 year old granddaughter lives with me in my co-op. The co-op office manager and co-op lawyer say that she is not allowed to drive in our co-op. Her car is legal and safe to drive. They say if survelience video catches her driving, I will be fined or possibly evicted. I have provided the office... Read more »

Are they alleging she broke a co-op rule? It's possible for them to do that if they're saying some rule you agreed to by being a part of the co-op has been violated.

Your question got cut off and isn't really a question.
HOWEVER, I can answer.
You need to take your lease and that notice to quit and records showing whether or not you have paid the lease as agreed to a local attorney ASAP. We can't provide an answer here because the... Read more »
With my house and she refuses to have them fixed she's constantly driving to and passed my house then texting or rolling her window down and hollering out but will not answer me she has already put her hands on me and grabbed me by the arm what can I do
answered on Nov 21, 2022
Do you already have a lease signed, and you're just wanting a copy? What you can do depends on what you're willing to do. I think you can find a better place and a better landlord who will treat you professionally.
I have documents of the above and a email from there office “everything is up to date”. Their make false accusations in writing too the court me an eviction notice on my apartment door.

This isn't defamation of character. Best thing you can do is respond to the allegations in court.

I'm unsure you have a right to go on that property. And depending on what's going on, it could be a secured scene for criminal or insurance purposes, so you definitely would not want to enter uninvited.
His insurance company’s name?
answered on Oct 22, 2022
No. Your landlord's insurance company is obligated to the landlord; for a tenant to contact or make a claim on a landlord's insurance would be like calling your neighbor's auto insurance carrier to report them speeding.
A landlord does have a legal obligation to provide an... Read more »
That I was dating for the last 5 years. I alerted the BOD and management of the PPO and they haven’t responded, just saying that they have received copy of PPO.

answered on Oct 22, 2022
Your former boyfriend is responsible for adhering to the terms of the PPO; not the employer, who has no more obligation to you than to him. It is unreasonable to expect an employer or cooperative to manage what is a personal legal issue between you two.
Had I been notified I would have paid. I’ve been a tenant here for 4 years and there has never been a month that I was late and wasn’t notified until this year. I reside in Michigan.

Good question! You may have a defense of waiver. You should seek the assistance of a local attorney quickly.
The park is paying to put in concrete and sheds for people buying their home, with a small fee added to their lot rent. But if I, a renter, want a shed, I have to pay for the concrete, and the shed. And the shed has to be approved by them. This just seems backwards to me. As I would have to pay for... Read more »

The park can do what it wants with ITS land. And if that means something you don't understand that is still OK.
I can see how the park might think "someone renting is likely to skip out in the middle and leave us a mess to clean up, but a purchaser is in it for the long run so... Read more »
