I am in the midst of eviction proceedings on a commercial property. Prior to the finalization of the eviction process, the LL has re-leased the property and as part of the lease, given to the new lessor my merchandise (over $250,000 worth), and moved them into the store property. I am currently... Read more »
The short answer is that it depends on what your lease allows and how much you owe the landlord. If this is going to lose you more money than allowed under the lease, then you should bring this immediately to the attention of the Court. I strongly recommend that you hire an attorney to represent...Read more »
My mother passed away and did not have a will. My stepdad is now saying I can not have her belongings because he is upset we don’t like his girlfriend. Can my niece who is 18 and lives on the property give me permission to get them?

I'm on a month to month and do plan to be out no later than Oct 13th but dont want to be battling him in court and want my security deposit back. However he sent in a text message that 9/30/18 would be my last month.
That's all the text said. So I asked is October 1 day I have to be moved. He responded yes. I did ask for something in writing never received. Then I received another text stating that if I stayed past 9/30/18 rent would be 3 times monthly amount $2670.00. Is this legal? I would understand a... Read more »

Why are we unable to sell the house without... Read more »
This issue arises a lot and is usually caught by a title company when someone tries to sell a home. I cannot speak to your specific situation without seeing the deeds, but it sounds like what you are hearing is correct (even though I admit it seems terribly unfair).
Water damage, stained ceiling, mold, dirty air vents, exposed wires, broken tiles, torn wall paper, chipped tile, missing cover plates, an unsecured door lock. reeks of smoke/weed, no shower head, dirty kitchen cabinets...
Having issues with a retail space contract, no notice of raising rent and CAM fees (less than 30 days), and imposing previous months fees on the smaller businesses in a shopping center. There is a cap on the rent and CAM fees in our leasing contract.
Are you subject to a written lease? If so, read the lease. The duties as to fees and such things are spelled out there. If the landlord has violated the terms of the lease, you may be able to break it and move out. Take the document to an attorney and get him or her to read it carefully and explain...Read more »

No. Not unless you sue him for divorce and win, and probably not even then. There are a lot of moving parts to a marriage, and all we can say with so few details is that the solution you would like is within the realm of possibility. You need to hire a good divorce lawyer and tell him or her...Read more »
THere are a lot of facts that are missing here. Had you moved out? Did the landlord evict you? What kind of shape was the place in? You need to see an attorney in your town. The Alabama Landlord Tenant Act has some very specific protections for you in move-out situations. GO see a lawyer.
I signed a lease for a commercial business that says Month-to-month, but also states the term of the rental contract is a year and a half. The landlord hasn’t fixed anything that was previously wrong with the building the three months I’ve been there like he said he would in the lease. And... Read more »
Your question can't be answered without reading the document. The failure to fix things, and the apparent ambiguity in the document are two separate issues. Who drafted the document? It is possible that the document is ambiguous as to the term of the lease. If so, that ambiguity would be held...Read more »
My roommate walks in and tells me he found another place and is leaving next day and I have 48 hours to pay the utility deposits the lease is not up until March and told me when I moved in that he would be here until then.

The standard drill would be for me to tell you to hire a lawyer but I can tell you can't afford one. We do have legal aid in some counties in Alabama, but with your response due tomorrow (well, today, now - Tuesday) you don't have time to go to them to see if you qualify.

What document do you have wherein she promised to give the house to you? If you don't have something like that you can't show that she agreed to give the house to you in consideration of you cleaning it up.
It is her property and you got to stay there for 18 months for no rent. If she...Read more »
My son moved in with us for awhile and then started creating problems and we told him he had to move, he got an apartment but left his broken car at our house.

you can certainly have it towed since it is currently on your property. where you have it towed is up to you. it would be wise to keep a record of you informing your son what you are doing via text, email, or recording so that if he chooses to report it stolen, there would be no potential...Read more »
