No. Neither plaintiff nor defendant are required to have an attorney to begin with and if they elect to do so, the first court appearance is often the first time the opposing party becomes aware that the other side is represented. It may even not happen until one shows up for trial - only to find...Read more »
Ohio law does not require tenant to give permission to landlord. Landlord must have a valid reason, and must give reasonable advance notice to tenant, except if it is an emergency. Denying access could be reason for landlord to evict a tenant.
I broke a rule in my lease. Probably manager texted me and said that I have to leave property by November 12 due to breach. I was informed one week ago and the property manager said that the sixty days began when lease was breached... and not when I was informed of early termination
Property manager claims that I breached my lease on September 12. I was sent a text on October 1 saying that 1. My lease will be terminated early. 2. I have to vacate property by Nov 12 and 3. that the sixty days began when lease was allegedly breached and NOT when I was notified.
A breach of the lease could allow the landlord to dispense with any notice provision in the lease and move to dispossess you by demanding the return of the premises and filing a dispossessory action in your county's Magistrate Court. Perhaps your landlord does not understand the law?
So when my ex and I moved into an apartment together, I paid the $500 security deposit and we agreed that she wouldn't have to split it because I would get it back when we moved out. So when we move out, the apartment complex sends her the check by accident with both our names on it. She chased it... Read more »
I have reported this to my subdivision leasing office. Then it happened again today so I called the main leasing office and they advised me to call the police. The police came and spoke with me, then spoke with the neighbor. He admitted to saying he would kill my dog but claimed he didn't say it... Read more »
If you do not feel safe, then your best option might be to break your lease and move. If the threats continue or escalate, you might also be entitled to a restraining/protection order, but that all depends on whether or not the cops will press charges.
We have been dealing with rats in our home for 3-4 months caused by the landlord/neighbor, they've had rats alot longer then us. I've had an professional exterminator out here several times and nothing they do helps get rid of them. The rats are running everywhere day & night, urinating and pooping... Read more »
In Virginia, a neighbor who is not the actual landlord of the Complaintant has no standing to bring a lawsuit under landlord-tenant laws. You may have a claim under Tort law for negligence. I do not handle Tort law matters. You should contact a lawyer who is located in your city/county for a formal...Read more »
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 »
My lease agreement expires October 31, 2019 and I have already started moving from the home. On October 9, 2019 I was served with eviction papers due to unpaid rent. My landlord did not give me with a written notice before taking actions through the court. Did he follow the proper steps to evict... Read more »
Yes. If they are a month-to-month tenant, §704.17, Wis. Stats., allows you to give either a 5-day or 14-day notice for failure to rent. If they are under a lease for one year or less, §704.17(2), Wis. Stats., allows you to give them a 5-day notice to pay or vacate. No prohibition against...Read more »
A charge to repaint the premises is generally stated in the lease to give the landlord that right. If the lease has that provision, then maybe the landlord has the right. If the lease is silent regarding that fee, the landlord does not have the right to charge that repainting fee.

If they haven’t been there long, they are just a guest. You tell them to leave. If they don’t go, you call the police and they’re trespassing. If they’ve lived there a while, you may have to evict them even if they don’t pay for anything.
I'm trying to decide whether to stay on month-to-month rent or get a lease, and future neighbor NOISE is the main wildcard. My current neighbors are luckily quiet (for the most part) but new ones could be bad. The managers say they can't legally tell me when the quiet people's lease ends, or if... Read more »
Sorry but you have no legal right to know anything about the rental agreement between a neighbor and the landlord. You may want to know; you may have use for the information; but you have no right to know. Ask your neighbors, perhaps they will tell you. Only you can make the decision as how to...Read more »
Part of your question might have gotten left off in uploading. If you could repost with additional details (do not include personal information), that might enable an Indiana attorney to meaningfully assess the matter. Good luck
Our lease is from July 2019 to May 2020. They have listed a $40/month increase if we renew by Oct. 15, 2019 and a $60/mo increase if we renew after Oct. 15. I'm new to Virginia and do not know if there is rent control or other regs that allow this. I've never had a landlord request a renewal 8... Read more »
The date of the lease's renewal and the date for the written notice for renewal and for the rent increase must be stated in the written lease. It would be best for your to review your lease to see what provision addresses these topics because the lease is the contract on which your have rights....Read more »
