The real estate agent and their broker may be responsible for writing a legal document as non -attorneys. With regards to your land contract being called due, lenders and banks usually have provisions in their mortgage that call a note due upon the conveyance of title. The issue is whether or not,...Read more »
It was agreed I pay month to month after March as I was in the process of looking and buying a home, which I found in April and was moved in by May 2018. I moved out at the end of May notified the complex like agreed and left the keys, four years later I'm being sued for June and July rent,... Read more »
Did you sign a lease that obligated you to pay rent for a period of time that extended past the date on which you moved out? I suspect that there was a lease, and it went through July 2018. If so, the fact that you notified the landlord of your intention to move probably makes no difference.
If a collection agency is involved, that means there is a judgment entered by a court. Your options for changing that judgment are few. The most cost-effective way forward is to contact the collection agency to work out a settlement.
Your question got cut off and isn't really a question.
HOWEVER, I can answer.
You need to take your lease and that notice to quit and records showing whether or not you have paid the lease as agreed to a local attorney ASAP. We can't provide an answer here because the...Read more »

With my house and she refuses to have them fixed she's constantly driving to and passed my house then texting or rolling her window down and hollering out but will not answer me she has already put her hands on me and grabbed me by the arm what can I do
Do you already have a lease signed, and you're just wanting a copy? What you can do depends on what you're willing to do. I think you can find a better place and a better landlord who will treat you professionally.
Trying to find my dog who was trapped in a burning house so I can bury him along with a cat and another dog and I am being told not to come on property or will be arrested for trespassing by a friend i was living with. Also I am not responsible for the house fire the home owner caused the fire that... Read more »
I'm unsure you have a right to go on that property. And depending on what's going on, it could be a secured scene for criminal or insurance purposes, so you definitely would not want to enter uninvited.
That I was dating for the last 5 years. I alerted the BOD and management of the PPO and they haven’t responded, just saying that they have received copy of PPO. When I asked if he was working because I wanted to drop by the office they told me it was employee confidentiality and taunted me. I... Read more »
Your former boyfriend is responsible for adhering to the terms of the PPO; not the employer, who has no more obligation to you than to him. It is unreasonable to expect an employer or cooperative to manage what is a personal legal issue between you two.
No. Your landlord's insurance company is obligated to the landlord; for a tenant to contact or make a claim on a landlord's insurance would be like calling your neighbor's auto insurance carrier to report them speeding.
A landlord does have a legal obligation to provide an...Read more »
The park is paying to put in concrete and sheds for people buying their home, with a small fee added to their lot rent. But if I, a renter, want a shed, I have to pay for the concrete, and the shed. And the shed has to be approved by them. This just seems backwards to me. As I would have to pay for... Read more »

You should contact your county's legal aid office. If you've been served and have a court date, the court will probably already have someone from legal aid ready to assist you for the subsequent hearing.
1. There are 2 defendants (unmarried). Am I able to put both names on the one complaint and summons? how many copies of each “packet” (including summons, complain, notice of quit, no lease because there isn’t one) do you need to send for each
I would suggest that for your costs and time, it would be most cost effective for you to hire a local attorney to conduct the eviction. The onus is on you as the landlord to meet each procedural and administrative step; a misstep - even unintentional - could delay, or in worst case, cause the...Read more »
You're outlining a case that comes with a strong headwind. I am hesitant to say it is definitely barred until more information is divulged.
