My wife just passed away. She bequeathed half of my home to her son, which I had no knowledge of until a few days ago. He is the executor of her estate and wants his half of my house now. I know estate executors have a lot of power over a deceased's property and assets. Can he take my own... Read more »
If her will left her half of the house to him and it was purchased during the marriage, that makes you the owner of the other half. Either of you can force a sale if neither of you wants to buy the other out. Call a successions attorney.
I bought the loan to a trailer they cosigned for my aunt and her husband. They bullied me into signing a document releasing them from responsibility as co-signer. They said if I didn't my mama and I had to leave and if we didn't they would have the law remove us. I was threatened to... Read more »
You own a trailer. You owe a lien for a trailer. They are still responsible for the lien if you don't pay it because I seriously doubt the lender would release to 2 cosigners. If you have a lease to the land, you can enforce it. If you don't, they can evict you. They have no other...Read more »
My husband took in roommates when I moved out of the house we jointly own during our separation. They need to move out since we reconciled and am moving back in. Do they have any legal rights & refuse to leave? What legal rights do I have since I own 50% & never agreed to anything with... Read more »

Teaching opportunity: The law is not designed to solve every little problem that comes your way during this lifetime; the Latin phrase for this rule is "De minimus non curat lex." Accordingly, if Louisiana laws regarding "rental law" do not contain anything about landlords...Read more »
84 yo mother died in December 2018 and did not leave a will - although it was very well known within the family what her intentions were. I had a massive brain bleed (stroke) 4years ago. She wanted me to remain in her house and be financially protected. Through succession of Mom’s estate, the... Read more »
Buyer's real estate agent has taken advantage of my elderly parents since the start. Buyer has failed to make payments on time every month since signing. 45 days have been given each time. The contract said for improvements to be made to houses and property. None have been made. Rather the... Read more »
On June 2017, I moved into an apartment. Within two weeks my A/C stopped working. I requested it to be fixed, and they attempted to fix it a week later by adding antifreeze to the unit. The problem was that the unit was leaking antifreeze. So for the first two months of my lease, the A/C unit would... Read more »
If you have those notices, timeline, and notice of non payment for days where you could not live in the apartment, I would submit to the landlord, or whatever collection agency may have reported, to contest the reporting and to advise that the report is without merit, as you have evidence...Read more »
Since the lease term does not begin until August you have much more time to work this out with the new landlord than it should take; and the landlord has a great deal of time to find another tenant too. Get on it.
I lived with her and payed 400$ a month and im still doing it the money is going towards the bills she owed. And we agreed i can buy all them out with my inheritance but we r doing the succession and getting that straight. They r saying i have to get 100,000 rental insurance minimum. My mom didnt...

Unless the house still has a mortgage on it, I am tot sure who "they" are, and why "they" are requiring you to pay rental insurance. IMO the most important issue here is to remain in the house until the deed is changed to your name. That will probably require court action, i.e. probate.
The mother's name has been deed since 1992. She died in 1996. No will. No succession ever done. Been living in residence since 2006 with other brother who passed in July of this year. No oral or written lease. No rent ever paid to her or anyone. One son whose name isn't on deed is saying... Read more »
Technically anyone with a legal interest in the property can evict you if you don't have permission to live there, but anyone with a legal interest can also give you permission. I would suggest that you get written permission from one of the other heirs, preferably in the form of a lease.
My apartment was rendered uninhabitable by smoke and structural damage caused by a lethal fire that occurred directly next door to us. I filed a claim with my renter's insurance but we have been displaced for a week now and will be for at least another based on professional estimates. The... Read more »
If you cannot occupy the leased premises, you likely should not have to pay rent. However, your lease may have a specific "fire and casualty clause" spelling out the exact remedies. For example, if the premises are untenable, abatement of rent should certainly occur, and if repairs not...Read more »
Only lived there a month, and landlors failed to provide lease like he said he would. We ended up having to move for other reasons. There was no damage or unpaid bills and we also found someone to rent the trailer for him since we were moving.
An oral lease can be binding. Generally, if there is no agreed upon term, or the lease expires and the tenant continues to rent, then the lease becomes month to month. So, if you all agreed to a specific term, that could be binding. Still, if you found someone to assume the lease and you know...Read more »
