This has been going on almost 6 months now. Have been consulting with Legal Services Alabama. But it seems we've reached an impasse. My biggest concern is whether apartment management will replace any items that must be discarded. But they're refusing to do that. And my renters insurance... Read more »
This is something that an Alabama attorney is best suited to advise about, but your question remains open for two weeks. I'm sorry for your ordeal with the mold and the mold-induced asthma. At this point, you could reach out to injury attorneys who handle mold cases. Each state can have...Read more »

For better and more specific answers to your questions you should contact an attorney directly in your area and provide him a copy of your lease agreement. An apartment complex would not be permitted to violate the Alabama Code regarding its responsibilities to tenants.
7/24/21 put deposit. Was told he gave previous tenets 30 days to vacate. He was supposed to contact me if I could move in sooner. I got a message 8/24/21 saying this was the last day and to contact him, he said that he wasn't sure if the tenets were moved out because they had left some... Read more »
I would suggest contacting an attorney to go over the specifics of your case in detail. A landlord has a duty to provide you both legal and actual possession of a property. Having prior tenants living there would violate that duty.
If you have not already I would send a letter to your landlord making a specific request for your deposit back, and if they refuse an accounting of the defects they allege account for not returning said deposit. Give a time limit to respond. You may want to send it certified mail so that you can...Read more »

No you may not. What you can do is file a suit against your neighbor for a nuisance. But if the landlord allows pets then there is probably nothing you can do about it, except get a money damage and to do that you have to prove damages, like lost wages, emotional distress and having to be...Read more »
I have been trying for two years to get my landlord to fix my leaky roof (among other serious issues). She finally hired some *cheap* people to replace it.

I live in the state of Alabama, my dad passed away and his landlord that he rented a lot from for his mobile home is trying to sue me. He is trying to sue me for back rent and property cleanup can he do this legally?
If you are the executor of your fathers estate he can. Also remember anyone can be sued. Whether or not they win is another story. If you were not on the lease agreement it is highly unlikely they will win. However you must defend the lawsuit. If you do nothing, they can get a judgement against...Read more »

Hire a competent attorney to analyze your situation. Either buy it or leave. Do not just lease thinking you are, or will...Read more »

Unless the Manager destroys or steals your property, what would be your damages? There is no cause of action here. Even if the Manager and Customer hurt something, how would you prove it? Generally a landlord can enter the premises.

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 »
