This trailer was made in 1959 and the insulation is shot. The built-in electric heater is very expensive to run.

If you have been appointed executor or personal representative or administrator of his estate then, yes, you have the authority to enforce any existing lease, including demanding rent pursuant to the lease. Or you can evict...View More
Dad has two options. He can call the police and see if the police will remove them as trespassers. Or he can evict per the Arizona Residential Landlord and Tenant Act. If he must evict, I recommend that he consult with an attorney familiar with residential evictions.
Yes, it is not uncommon to amortize a loan over 20 or 30 years but provide for a balloon payment after 3-10 years. This allows a buyer to purchase and, if needed, provides time to build equity and improve his or her credit so it may be possible to refinance conventionally when the balloon payment...View More

MY HOA refuse to pick up my mail, which includes my monthly dues. This has been going on for 4 months now. All mail was sent certified return receipt. There was an ADRE case on HOA refusing to pick up mail, and who is liable. I am awaiting response.

Send all checks regular mail or hand deliver them, and when they cash them, you will have a bank record of some type. You knew you...View More

The homeowners' divorce does not impair your rights under the lease and is not, by itself, grounds for lease termination. So long as you pay your rent, you should be allowed to complete your lease term unless your lease contains provisions that would allow the owners to terminate early.
