Richard Samuel Price's answer You can talk this out with the tenant and see if she would like to move, but you cannot require her to move by giving a 30 Day Notice to Quit if she is on a one year lease.
Andy Chen's answer Possibly, but proving it might be difficult as they are unlikely to come out and say 'Yes, we took the spots away to get back at you.' Depending on what you're taking the complex to court for, this retaliation may or may not be relevant for that case.
It doesn't hurt in general (there are, of course, exceptions) to have a lawyer on your case if you can afford it.
Julie A. Rice's answer If you are disrupting the quiet enjoyment of other tenants or the neighborhood, then the landlord has grounds to convict you but it will be up to the judge to decide by the evidence that the landlord presents whether or not you have violated these rules whether or not you have been convicted. If you are having parties ~ then quit it and be an adult. See the Georgia Landlord Handbook (google it) for more specific information.
Julie A. Rice's answer If you don't pay rent regardless of whether or not the lease is signed, then you can be evicted. If you don't want to be evicted, then pay what you owe and have the landlord put in writing that you have satisfied the rent payment for what is due and owed so there is no misunderstanding.
Julie A. Rice's answer Go to court and present your side of your story to the judge. Most likely you will be evicted if you have not paid rent and she has given you proper notice that she is going to evict you for failing to pay rent. Go to the Georgia Landlord Tenant Handbook (google it) for more detailed information and a possible defense.
Julie A. Rice's answer Yes, and this makes the property uninhabitable so report the landlord accordingly and look to websites such as this for more information: http://real-estate-law.freeadvice.com/real-estate-law/landlord_tenant/tenant-rights-landlord-obligations.htm
Robert Jason De Groot's answer It would appear so, from the wording. More facts are needed as to what has actually happened. The sale is not consummated until the closing, which is usually around 60 days from the date of the contract.
Matthew Williams' answer I suspect you are in the right here. They could try to evict. If you fight it they would probably lose. It's the power company that cost them $178.75. They should try to collect that from them. (of course that won't work).
Matthew Williams' answer Now would be a good time to take a trip to your local legal aid office and inquire about landlord tenant law. It is likely the bedbugs are the landlord's problem and a violation of something called the implied warranty of habitability. That's a legal concept that requires all landlords to provide generally habitable conditions. Telling the other place is a little more tricky. It may be slanderous, if it is isn't true, but the damage is done there. A lawsuit regarding the other issues might shut...
Andy Chen's answer Do you have a written lease? If so, what does the lease say about how frequently rent is to be paid? If you don't have a lease, the landlord can change the terms. If you don't like it, your option is to move.
Robert Jason De Groot's answer Well, this is quite a mess. The lease says 60 days notice, normally without a contract that says that it would have to be at least half of a month. The problem is that you cannot possibly find another place for you and the kids to live on 2 days notice. Negotiate further with the landlord. That is highly unreasonable, to give you 2 days notice, when the lease says 60, in my opinion.
