If the landlord is fine with it, could you do this to drive down your own personal rent? If you set everything up, find the other tenants/roommates and can pay on time every month, is it possible to do this on a regular lease without the others knowing how much you're paying?
First, it depends on the terms in your lease agreement. Most lease agreements provide that subleasing is not allowed unless you get the written consent of the owner/landlord. You should review your lease to see what is states about subleasing. Secondly, it also could depend on whether the HOA of...Read more »

The enterprise you are suggesting is a sublease. It is done on different scales from residential real estate, to large retail establishments. I suggest you find a model residential sublease or two on the internet, and read through the legalese, while keeping in mind that every problem the sublease...Read more »

It depends on what your lease says about the amenities. Typically, amenities are not included in the lease and would have no bearing on your rent. You can ask your landlord about this and see what their position is.
You should consult with an attorney that specializes in landlord-tenant law immediately. Unlawful Detainers have short response times. If you were served personally with the summons, you must file a response in 5 days or you may be defaulted which means you can lose the case.
My Landlord wants to sell the home Im renting from her. The real estate investor who is interested in buying the home first served me with a 30 day notice to "voluntarily" vacate the home. 2 months later the investor interested in buying the home filed an unlawful detainer with the court...

Make sure you have notified your landlord that you are unable to due to covid reasons otherwise you may waive your right to assert any of those covid protections as a defense to an unlawful detainer action if your landlord files one against you.
After moving out landlord informed me that I had scratched his kitchen cabinets and will be deducting $350 for resurfacing them along with $170 cleaning fee from my $2200 security deposit. Is he allowed to deduct anything from my deposit since he failed to give me the Pre Move Out inspection?
There is white paint on driver's door of his black car, which was backed into spot left of me. I have silver car with no damage on it. They dropped it off at paint shop today and texted me price to pay.
You should try to explain to him that you did not cause this damage to his car. It is always better to try to resolve these matters by talking to your landlord directly to find an amicable resolution. However, if he insists that you caused the damages, he will have to file a lawsuit against you to...Read more »

I gave the tenant 60 days notice to move out of my property, with a move out date of May 31. The tenant countered with a move out date of May 20 and asked to prorate rent in May. Am I legally obligated to prorate the last months rent? The property is in Torrance, Los Angeles County, California.
If the rental agreement does not specifically address the situation, and the tenant has properly given the 30 days notice, then yes, the tenant may move on any day of the month, and only owes prorated rent for the last month.
That's how it works. Plaintiff's counsel dates and signed the Request for Dismissal, then it is delivered to the Clerk to be stamped. Presumably, Plaintiff's counsel has served you with the unstamped copy, and you will later be served with the stamped copy.
If it was a gift, the answer is no. When a gift is made it transfers the title to the recipient of the gift without consideration or payment. As a practical matter, if he wants to take it back, let him because it means your relationship is over.
This notice may be invalid because if this is a residence, the minimum notice is 60 days, not 30, except in special circumstances. If you were there at least one year, you may also be entitled to a move out allowance equal to 30 day's rent. You should consult with a local Tenant's...Read more »
