You bought a house while you were paying your father's rent. If you stop paying your dad's rent, he will be evicted. But now that you've taken on the mortgage payment, you've left dad to pay his own rent, but he can't.
Your idea is to find another tenant to take...Read more »
I begged my landlord to repair apartment, they refused till I threatened to withhold, I don't think anyone has experience answering questions regarding the fact that masked people are at my door refusing to provide ID so I am removing this question, please do not comment further.
If you have two tenants with two separate written lease agreements both agreements should speak to a security deposit and what is for. The tenant leaving is entitled to whatever part of their security deposit is refundable.
If there is only one written lease agreement for both tenants you...Read more »
It wasn't a lease or anything it was either to pay or leave and due to COVID we had to leave because we lost out on money. They threatened to call authorities and have our car repossessed unless we paid and put a lien and take our car. Is that possible without a court order?
This doesn't sound like a personal injury matter. Sounds more like a landlord/tenant issue in which you were given 3 days to pay the $1200 rent OR vacate the premises. If you failed to pay and had to be evicted, it's possible, depending on the lease you claim to not have, that you'd...Read more »
I have an apartment and in violation of the lease the neighbor is a heavy marijuana user. The smell now permeates my unit and is not allowing me to have the quiet enjoyment of my property. I have addressed this issue with the property manager repeatedly and they have done nothing to address it. At... Read more »
Without reading the lease, it's difficult to say. The covenant of quiet enjoyment is between you and the LL, not between neighbors. I suppose that it's possible to make the argument that the LL is not enforcing the lease provisions as to your neighbor, thus by extension, denying you the...Read more »
I've occupied a unit in a condo complex for the past 2 years. The building has known issues with cable wiring. Xfinity provided us with equipment for self installation, however our internet connection continued to fail after many attempts by service techs to repair. They finally told us that... Read more »
Nobody is required to furnish internet access, unless the requirement is specifically mentioned in the lease. You have some options, I think: pay to upgrade the condo's cabling; move; or see if you can access the internet via satellite or some other wireless method of connecting to the...Read more »
I received the first bill and noticed it was extremely high for 19 days of service, only using 700 gallons. I found out that the condo is on a Master meter. So I have to meet the minimum of 41.20 a month plus whatever my water and sewer usage is that month. In this case it is the Master meter which... Read more »
I live in a Condo Community in Celebration and noticed my bill was crazy for water. I found out it includes a min or base of 42 dollars that is mandatory per month plus what water i use. I used 710 gallons which comes out to less then 5 dollars for water\sewer. However they toss on the communities... Read more »
Get out the documents you signed when you purchased the condo and look to find out what you actually owe. If you are not the owner then get out the written lease you signed and look to see what you actually owe. If you do not have a current written lease you are going to regret not having one.
When I was being shown the unit by the realtor I was informed that I would have to pay 1st, last, and security prior to moving in. When I filled out the application the paperwork also stated the money would go to 1st, last, and security. Once I provided the property manager the money he than... Read more »
You didn't read the lease. Nothing else matters. I don't know how they can claim 2 security deposits, though. I am betting that whomever replied to your e-mail is a $12.00 hour worker bee, and not THE manager. Try setting up an appointment with that person to resolve what should be easily...Read more »
Depends. If you had an agreement with her to pay rent, arguably you could evict her. If there was no agreement that she pay rent, you could eject her. Before you hire a lawyer, because you are not going to do this yourself, see if she will leave voluntarily, perhaps by offering her cash to leave.
First thing Monday morning, get on the phone or the internet and find a landlord tenant attorney in your town/county; hire him or her, and tell him/her what you want done. Then let the attorney work his or her magic. if it was me, and my tenant hadn't paid rent in 3 months and opened a flea...Read more »
2020. My husband was in jail and I talked to the property manager and explained to him that he will pay when he gets out of jail and he's just been home a week and he can't pay the rent right now because of losing his job and his bank account is frozen to fraudulent activity and we have...

A 15 day notice is the minimum amount of time the landlord is required to give you on a month to month lease. The Covid 19 restrictions do not prevent a landlord from evicting a tenant for anything but the nonpayment of rent; and in fact the restriction is on the sheriff from serving a writ of...Read more »
The landlord is required to give you a notice that meets statutory requirements to pay the rent or vacate the premises. A notice that fails to meet the statutory requirement is a problem for the landlord. Not giving you any notice is worse. Changing the locks and cutting off the power is...Read more »
My boyfriend has been living at this rental property for 3 years now. I moved in with him last year in May. He has been paying $350 in rent every month. He has text message receipts or texts stating that’ he paid and a couple paper receipts that were written to him. We notified the... Read more »
Of course you can, although eviction may not be the appropriate remedy to get you out. You had 5 days to answer the allegations of the eviction complaint, so there may be a default against you and your boyfriend. I suggest that you contact a lawyer, perhaps Legal Aid, immediately, as in tomorrow,...Read more »

Your question is someone difficult due to all the abbreviations. Whoever is the current title holder can decide who he wants to lease to and if that person wants you off then that is a possibility. You need to go to a real estate attorney in your area and have your lease and the documents that...Read more »
