The landlord and owner are unwilling to make repairs that are needed and also the listing of the house was for $2,000.00 per month but they want to charge $2,100.00 per month. Is our deposit refundable?
If you have not signed a lease, then it doesn't sound like you have a deal, and should not be paying a deposit. If there is no lease signed, and you have not even reached an oral agreement (there are still issues about the amount of rent and repairs to be done) then any deposit you've...Read more »
A dispute with the property manager won't be enough to evict you. I suspect there is more to the situation, but without knowing the basis of the eviction and more facts, it's impossible to say what defenses you may have.
They never told me I had to sign anything. I gave them notice. They also accepted my keys. I’m not longer in Texas. They are now emailing me saying I owe them 60 days rent and they cannot accept keys before hand yet they already did.
You may want to send them a copy of your notice, along with written confirmation of when the keys were turned in. Hang onto a copy of the lease, your notice, and evidence of paying rent, as you may need these to defend a claim against you for the unpaid rent.
It's not clear how the cases are related, but if you've gotten an eviction notice, you're going to want to 1) plan on moving, 2) see if you can work things out with the landlord, or 3) go to court to try to fight the eviction. Your description does not provide enough information to...Read more »
We lived in an apartment on a lease that ended 4/23. We renewed on 2/31 for 6 months, which starts on 4/24. We decided that we were moving out on 4/20 and canceled the renewed lease in writing on 4/20. We also informed them in writing that we were going on MTM lease and this is our 30 day notice...

Sorry, but it sounds like you Did terminate early. After the renewal, the lease was supposed to run through October, and you terminated in May. Changing your mind after you sign the renewal, doesn't get you out of the renewal, even if you tell them before the renewal term was to start.
this rock was part of some kind of thing that was built on the ground to make a platform. I did not build this it was already built. Can i file under the homeowners insurance policy because i was badly injured?
If you rent the room on a month to month basis, they have to give you 30 days notice of non-renewal. If the oral agreement is week to week, they would only need to give you a week's notice of non-renewal. If you've breached the agreement in some way, the notice period can be 3 days.

Move. The executor or administrator of the estate has a legal duty to sell property to pay debts and distribute the remainder according to the Will or, if there is no Will, the state's laws of inheritance. This may involve evicting tenants. Neither occupancy nor friendship confer ownership...Read more »

When the original term of a lease expires and the tenant stays in the property, the tenant does so under the same terms as the original lease, but becomes a month to month tenant. Your lease appears to have an increased rent amount, but if you've been accepting rent under the old rate for 2-3...Read more »
I think you're asking what happens when the appellant files their brief and the appellee does not. In that case, the appeals court will make its decision based on the record, and the appellant's arguments.
Yes, it appears to be. This remedy involves more than just these subpoints. I believe there are three additional requirements that need to be also met as well as some other code sections that flesh out what "notice" means.
I am not sure if you are the landlord or the tenant here,...Read more »
Probably not, but it's hard to say anything for sure without some context - such as what they said, whether it was true, and the exact reason you were fired. Unless what they said was untrue, and the employer fired you because they believed it (and not for any other reason), I doubt there is...Read more »
Apt did not use contracted towing company as what’s listed in my contract and outside buildings. They will not tell me a reason my car was towed. Who ever took my car did not leave any information on where my car was taken to. They did not register my car as towed, so it has been stolen. I made a... Read more »
Sorry to hear about that! In regards to the fees that you are being charged, on the invoices you are receiving, there should be a phone or email address that you can reach out to figure out what's going on.
my lease expired on march 23rd 2021. Originally I had given a 30 day notice (what’s required per my lease) and was planning on moving to a new complex, but decided to retract my notice and just transfer units (switch from 1 to 2 bed). I have been waiting for over a month for my transfer request... Read more »
Your old lease expired, and you haven't signed a new one. For most leases, this means you're a month to month tenant. Check your lease to be sure. If that's the case, you must give a 30 day notice to terminate the lease.
