I moved into my apartment in November 2018. As of September 2019, not one item from my move-in checklist has been addressed. I have a ceiling fan that is inoperable due to the fact that it is not securely attached to the ceiling. I have a non-functional bathroom exhaust fan, which was inspected by... Read more »
You may be able to withhold rent and/or fix things and subtract it from your lease if the repairs are ‘necessary’ to make the place habitable but only if you follow the appropriate procedures to do so.
A better option would be to walk away and rent...Read more »
I purchased my home back in March this year and I wish to put up an additional garage/pole barn (following all local permit rules). Some of the neighbors have mentioned that this cul-de-sac was a part of a HOA years ago. This was never disclosed to me and I was never given any information during... Read more »
The most effective way to remove your name from the loan is to pay it off. Short of that there is very little you can do because the bank alone makes that decision. (Note: It would not hurt to notify the bank about this situation, just to get it on record that you are worried.)
Unless the landlord has significantly improved the trash removal services included in the lease--like going to a system where someone will be picking up your trash at your door--the current term in lease still applies.
Advice: If you contacted the company to complain and get all your money back you were wasting your time. Why? Because unless the crack in your "stamped" concrete patio has rendered it completely unusable or damaged some other part of your home, IMPO no court will let you keep a new concrete patio...Read more »
I am a licensed real estate agent in Michigan, but do not practice as one. I have a friend who lives in California & I viewed several properties he's going to buy, took photos, and retrieved info from the seller for him since we are both local and he isn't. At closing he has proposed the title... Read more »
Rather than go out on the 'net and do legal research before answering this question I will suggest an alternative that skirts around all the sticky legal issues: Have you friend pay you personally--outside the closing--thereby avoiding a paper trail.
My ex and I are on a land contract together however he refuses to leave, has no job, and does not contribute financially in anyway. I have made all the house payments, utilities are in my name, and I made the initial down payment. Only real claim he has is that I foolishly allowed his name to be... Read more »
No damages. It was a new car that I purchased and hadn’t taken home yet. The dealership put an extra 150 miles on it when my contract said 11 miles on the odometer. Shouldn’t they had it towed to get the moonroof put in and not driven it?
She was told she had to sign paperwork in January even though she leases August to August. Now that she has found a house to buy, they said she can’t get out of the lease agreement even though it doesn’t begin until August 2019. She’s been there for many years and she goes through this...

The written lease should specify exactly when it will come up for renewal, as well as what happens if the tenant does not renew at the time designated. Most leases come up for renewal about 60 days before the end date; and some leases will allow tenants to "holdover" after the end date--but only at...Read more »

I was in a car accident a couple of weeks ago. We were at a stop waiting for traffic to clear to turn left when the car behind us did not stop and went right into us. It was a hit and run, but they were caught. Both cars were totaled. I was the passenger in the car, and have been going to a... Read more »
This is a perfect example why non-lawyers should never agree to do anything important when offered by a complete stranger--over the telephone? Really? There may still be time for you to extract yourself from the clutches of this uncaring insurance company--if you call a lawyer and ask for help. Do...Read more »
Out of curiosity after we bought it, I looked online to see if their photos had the defect before we bought it and I noticed it in their pictures, sadly, we were not notified of it and we did not notice it until later that same day. The defect is the drivers side sliding door that will not close... Read more »
That attorney is correct. Your judgment of divorce has no bearing on the contract you and possibly your ex signed once upon a time. But under the terms of your judgment of divorce, it sounds like you'd have a fair claim for what's called indemnity against your ex (e.g. paying someone else's debt)...Read more »

Went to pre-trial in Dec, judge told us to work it out (reasonably). The collection company is... Read more »
No one can answer this question for you, or suggest an answer for you, without sitting down with you to talk specifics about all the things you mentioned in your question. You should call a bankruptcy lawyer and ask to set up a consultation.
You have not provided enough facts for me to be able to determine whether you have a basis to sue anyone. However, if you claim that the lease was breached by the landlord, your claim would be against the landlord, whom your refer to as "owner LLC", and not against any of the landlord's agents,...Read more »
