The bills is for repairs, carpet replacement. They already kept our deposit but are just now sending a bill. This is a new property management company who came after we moved. I read that Utah law says a landlord has to bill you within 30 days.
We want to leave the contract due to terrible management. We rent a basement apartment have have tenants above us. City ordinance doesn’t allow for both units to be rented. But more so they entered the premises a few weeks ago without 24 hours notice. We didn’t realize at the time but I believe... Read more »
I've brought up for weeks that even tho I was shoveling snow, it was their responsibility to make sure our parking lot was snow and ice free to stop any of their tenants from hurting themselves. It hasn't been done. Last night I slipped on the ice I told them was a problem and hit my head... Read more »
My wife and I are elderly and bought a house with a mother in law apartment 3 years ago (only our names are on the title and mortgage) but share expenses--mortgage, utilities, repairs and upgrades with our son and his family. He recently has tried to install a hot tub without our permission. When... Read more »
Normally your signed agreement between the parties will answer these questions. I highly recommend, whether you have an agreement or not, to sit down for a few minutes with an attorney to discuss your options. Most attorneys will do this first appointment for free to see whether they will be able...Read more »
She sent us a Notice of Intent to Sell on 10-05-2021. She stated that the property would be sold to another property management company and that our tenancy and lease would not be affected. On 10-16-2021 a realtor and a young family came to look at the house. They were not a new company. I found... Read more »
That sounds like a difficult situation. The description states when you were asked to leave, but it does not state when you received the notice. The timing of a notice is important. If you have a lease, you may have agreed to some specific time periods for notice to leave. Some state laws override...Read more »
My card then declined that attempt due to a fraud prevention. Me not knowing the total i owed was $450 saw the charge he just attempted to do for $400. I then went and got a cashiers check, which is another accepted way to pay rent, for $400. I turned it in 2 hours after later. After he received my... Read more »
Charging your credit card in this case sounds like a collection of amounts due, not a communication of amounts due. I don't have any doubt that in court your mobile park agent could get a judgment that you haven't paid the amount agreed upon in your agreement. If the email communication...Read more »
The answer to your question depends on why they are giving you notice to leave. For example, a notice to "Pay or Quit" due to failure to pay your rent may be only 3 days long. After that, they can file the lawsuit to start the eviction process.
evictions case from 2013, started receiving notices for the first time towards end of July 2021, all 3 summons were signed by 1 of 3 defendants but another defendant was not informed (to the best of my knowledge) garnished wages for a total amount between now 2 defendants unknown how much each will...

A Utah attorney could advise best, but your post remains open for two weeks. You present a number of issues to sort out, and it's possible you might benefit from an attorney who has insight into a number of the different areas (such as L-T) you describe. In terms of your immediate needs, a...Read more »
As I have not reviewed your lease or the text and email from the landlord's management company, I can't tell you how likely you are to win if you were to fight this out in court. The theory you suggest is valid and may be true. Your relationship with the landlord is based on your lease...Read more »
We are breaking our lease early due to personal reasons, nothing outlined in the contract. There is over a year left on the lease. The landlord said that he is willing to let us sell our lease or terminate the lease once a new tenant is found. Unfortunately, it seems there have been no reasonable... Read more »
The landlord has a claim against you based on the lease period, however, if you quit the lease, the Landlord has a responsibility to advertise and actively seek a new tenant. The landlord can charge you for the advertising expense, but he can't just sit on the empty property for a year and...Read more »
Two months ago my garage door broke. It took 2 months to get it replaced. I had to park in the parking lot as the garage was inaccessible for those 2 months. The Homeowners Association charged me $50.00 month to park outside of the garage. I asked for reimbursement from the Property Rental... Read more »
My front door is a flimsy bedroom door, it doesn’t close properly, the deadbolt doesn’t lock, the door gets stuck and I can’t get out of the door without a huge struggle, I’ve complained 3 times and I was only told that they would come and paint the door and replace the locks if I bought...

There are normal minimums that come with making an agreement with someone. In the case of an apartment, safety and security are high on the list. If you feel the landlord isn't providing you with a secure situation, you can just leave, and then sue for any money you gave them. When addressing...Read more »
You need to read your lease. Sometimes landlords list a set of charges/fees upon move out----kinda sneaky but I think they picked this up like the short term condos and rentals have a cleaning charge upon departure. If there is nothing listed, then you should return the property in the same...Read more »
We used a stopper on our pantry door so that the doorknob would not keep slamming into the fridge. Eventually the stopper put a 1-2" hole in the door. Instead of just patching the hole, the landlord is insisting on buying a new door. And even worse, he insists it be a $300 custom-made door... Read more »
If you can install another door of matching quality and color to when you moved in the home, the landlord will have real difficulty trying to sue or press you for anything else. This becomes much more difficult to do if you have already moved out of the home. If he has already purchased and...Read more »
They want me to be moved out by the end of May it's not an addiction it's just a non-renewal do I have rights in anyting that can buy me more time or at least until June 30th. It's already extremely difficult to find a place and everything going on with the pandemic as it is. Also... Read more »
Based on rights, you have a right to stay as long as contracted, and Landlord is has the right to do business with whomever he pleases. If he accepts payment for a new month, he must let you stay for that new month. Some landlords will change their plans if you give them an extra month's rent...Read more »
Roommate moved out voluntarily without giving me notice and is now threatening to take me to small claims court for Her portion of rent since she no longer lives here. We have both signed the the release of residents form to remove her from our lease after she decided to move out. This form states... Read more »
The short answer to your question is "possibly". In my experience small claims court judges each have their own mind about what should happen, even more than your average district court judge. If either party is unhappy with their small claims judgment, they can spend more money to start...Read more »
My father is selling us his home and my sister who has lived with him for years is refusing to leave we have given her many months notice she would have to leave when we close on the home and now with closing a week away she's refusing to leave we are in Utah FYI she hasn't been effected...

As an update to my previous answer, I just noted that you are purchasing the home personally. This changes many things, the first of which is that the one week deadline is not usually a hard deadline. You can normally reschedule. It's annoying, but little is lost other than time.
