1. In residential rental situations where there are two or more residents on the same lease, the standard industry practice is to require every resident to undergo the same application process as everyone else does.
2. Most if not all licensed rental property managers require a nominal...Read more »
Unless you have a written agreement that allows you to go two weeks without paying any weekly rent to your landlord, and also allows you to pay only one week of the late rent using money orders I am afraid that the landlord will win this dispute.
We had permanent trash can on our porch (door step) they have now changed companies and say the trash cans have to be taken in to our appartment. I need to know if it's legal for them to fine for not taking g the trash can into my home or placed on the patio
This is not a legal question. Unless your written lease allows you to keep your trash can on the front porch--where all the other residents and anyone coming by have to see it--you are probably going to lose this stupid altercation.
This is not a legal question. This is a (very sad) personal dilemma created by you and your grown son. Unless the oral contract between you and your son is in writing it is no enforceable--by you or your son. Thus I am unaware of any legal remedy you could use lawfully to evict your son. At best...Read more »
I was planning on subletting my apartment which my landlord agreed to, they told me it was my responsibility to find someone which I had no problem with. I submitted the sublease form and fee and was called by the landlord informing me that they found someone to take over my lease and if I can move... Read more »
Unless you have something in writing from the landlord that proves the substance of what you were doing and had agreed to, you may be unable to defend against the rent and late charges. Everything MUST be in writing when doing anything involving real property (land and buildings).
I've been living with my mother for about 3 months. I was recently going to have my girlfriend spend the night with me and my mother told me she wouldn't allow it and if I did she would kick me out.. she threatened to get an eviction and told me if I did have my girlfriend spend the night she would...

Wow. Has it not yet occurred to you that--being a 32 year old man who lives with his mother--is very unusual? And has it not yet occurred to you that your mother is the tenant on the lease--not you--and can decide who can sleep there? And has it not yet occurred to you that if you want to have your...Read more »
Couple yrs ago my brother-in-law put up a tent (like you'd park a car under) in the backyard. He's gradually junked up the yard, accumulating more tents and trash. I've told him verbally and in writing for over a year to clean it up. Last yr he actually began living under the tent, sleeping,... Read more »

Neither room is completely repaired (the carpet probably has to be replaced as well). How long does a landlord have to finish the current job? I have given them access every day, and have been inconvenienced, to say the least. Thank you!
I live in Florida and failed to give 60 day notice to my landlord of intent to move. They are now stating that there is a fee of 1 months rent since it is inside the 60 day window. I received a notice asking of intent to move or stay but it did not have any fees or fines listed on the notice. I... Read more »
You are correct: the answer to your question is contained in the written lease. Most leases allow landlord's to impose some fee or sanction on tenant's who do not inform the landlord that they are leaving at the end of the lease.
My girlfriend and I split up and she moved out of the condo we rent, in the middle of an eviction lawsuit with our landlord. They are trying to evict us because I found mold inside while doing repair work like painting and patching holes and i have MULTIPLE health issues due to mold exposure and I... Read more »
This wonderful free legal advice forum was not created for--nor intended to be--a place where people who have already hired lawyers to represent them can ask questions about their case that should be directed to their lawyers.
She told everyone before she died that it was going to be left to me but the property is in her name how do I go about switching it in my name and make the payments where she left off and how would I go about getting power of attorney to handle her legal paperwork?
Very sorry for your loss and the passing of your sister, please accept my condolences. You will need to contact a Florida Probate Attorney. There is no power of attorney after death as any power of attorney ends at death. If there is no Will, then the Florida Intestate Statutes (without a will)...Read more »
I have tried methods to resolve over the 3 years I have lived in this house. Nothing held up. All other houses around me have added new sod over that time. I have had several companies come out to assist. All recommend new sod. Landlord is saying this is my responsibility. A daily fine will... Read more »
