During a dispute over money that I had back in 2015 I believe, with a person who I agreed originally to co-sign for on a house, I was dealing with fixing my vehicle that wasn’t working, therefore I had no money to give as a down payment. I got into an argument over Facebook with the guy who I was... Read more »
I had some carpet damage at my last apartment complex, due to a new kitten, I know my security deposit won't cover it so I've been waiting on a bill from them, it's been 6 weeks and I still haven't heard anything.
I notified my landlord 2 weeks ago that my air conditioner wasn't working right. I was told it would be fixed by the 21st. It still hasn't been. Can I buy a new one (in wall unit) and have it installed and deduct the entire cost from my rent?
Who do I turn to when landlord is making many many threats to raise rent if she has to hire anyone to fix her property if I won’t be her personal handyman. she comes into the property without notice often, says if i don’t sign her non legal agreement she will kick us out.
Especially in larger cities in high traffic or high crime areas, it is common for apartments to have a "doorman" that asks for ID if the "doorman" doesn't recognize those coming into the building to protect the property and other tenants.
I moved out of my apartment on 5/31 (the end of the lease) and now they are sending me a bill for $2,700 because apparently I was required to give 60 day notice to move out. Is there anything a I can do to dispute this?
Often a lease requires a certain amount of notice to terminate. If the period of time is reasonable, such as the Court may say 30 or 60 days as reasonable notice, then the Court will generally enforce a lease agreement entered into between the parties that requires the tenant to give 60 days...Read more »

Depending on the terms of the lease, a tenant may be able to end the lease if the apartment becomes uninhabitable for a period of time.

Allowing a person to profit off land is usually not the same legal term as a sublet. For example, a legal "profit" off the land could be allowing someone to remove timber, minerals, or wild game off the land. It is more like an easement than a sublet.
The rights of a tenant and landlord are generally governed by the landlord-tenant agreement (or lease). Unless the lease states otherwise, the landlord generally surrenders the property to the tenant for the tenant's purposes. Thus, a landlord can't generally enter the leasehold for...Read more »
We paid for the fence that houses his livestock. And paid hour wages to install the fence. We also did not charge rent in the earlier years because our livestock ran with his. So he's been compensated for the posts but he still is threatening if we don't sell it to him then he will just... Read more »
