Generally speaking, the Landlord is supposed to give advanced notice if he/she wants to come on the property to inspect, etc., but very few counties have actual rules on the books on how advanced that notice has to be.
However, the Landlord is certainly allowed to come onto the property...Read more »
To raise a successful defense of adverse possession, the defendant must show that he POSSESSED the land ADVERSELY, OPENLY, and CONTINUOUSLY in a manner HOSTILE to the record landowner's interests for the prescribed period. If you don't possess, the defense will be difficult to maintain....Read more »
Since there’s an agreement to pay rent, she would be considered a renter. Therefore you would need to give her 30 days written notice that you are ending her lease and expect her to vacate. If she refuses to leave after that time, you would need to file a Tenant holding over action.

The question is barely in English, and the description of the defense of adverse possession isn’t vaguely close to the law. If you have occupied a property openly adversely continuously and hostilely for more than the time in the statute of limitations, you may assert —preferably competently,...Read more »
First, read your lease to see if there is a specific provision regarding this. If not, NO. An open house is NOT a reasonable request from a landlord. Reasonable inspections upon advance notice and appropriate times are generally allowed, but having real estate agents and prospective buyers...Read more »
Read the lease terms on the lot rental contract, the mobile home park rules and regulations that are posted and made part of that contract, and see what is and what is not covered under those terms that you signed. These things are generally a contract issue.
My office has still not opened so I am not able to work. DHHS paid $18000 in back rent. I have now received a notice to quit. I was not able to renew my lease in August 2020 because of COVID and not working and I am month to month. Is there anyway to stop the notice to quit without paying the full... Read more »
This all depends on the terms of the agreement your Landlord made with DHHS in exchange for accepting the emergency rental assistance funds. Much of the pandemic rental assistance required landlord to sign an agreement to not move forward with eviction for a certain period of time following their...Read more »
I am not a tidy housekeeper- but I don’t have any insects or anything like that - just unpacked boxes and bags of clothes. My building recently installed new fire alarms and thus, I had to let engineers in, they saw the clutter - today the county knocked and asked to come in and inspect- I would... Read more »

The hazard is that paper burns fast and hot and dense stacks of it accelerates the spread and...Read more »

What Happens Or What Can Happen If The Owner/Owners File A Wrongful Detainer Regarding Adverse Possession ........ Can They? MD Cts & Jud Pro Code § 5-103 (2019). Or What Can Happen To The Owner/Owners As A Result They Do?
Well, a wrongful detainer action (WD) is where the owner of the home claims that there is a person living in the property who doesn't have a legal right to be there. If the owner files, it will come before a judge who will need to make a determination as to whether the person alleged to be...Read more »
Your post is impossible to make sense of or know what happened. A judge rules on motions--it's his or her job. It's not "illegal," it's exacty what the judge is paid to do. If you are unhappy with the ruling, the rules of procedure provide that you may file a motion for...Read more »
An LLC established for real property ownership is no different than an LLC formed for conducting another form of business. You will need to file articles of organization.

Wells Fargo Bill Pay rent check was late. Late enough to be over 5 days past due. Allegedly. Once LL reached out, rent was paid via PayPal. Stop payment on late check was placed. LL later tried to cash late check. LL is now charging late fees plus bounced check fees as it seems he tried to cash the... Read more »
If you paid via PayPal, and the Landlord received the PayPal funds before he tried to cash your late check, then your Landlord had no right to try and cash the late check and receive double payment, so he has no right to charge the bounced/returned check fee. If your payment was late, and your...Read more »
You would need to make sure to send out a security disposition letter within 45 days so that you don't run afoul of MD Real Property Art. 8-203. The letter should be an itemized list of why you are withholding the security deposit and should be sent to the Tenants last known address. Make sure...Read more »
My daughter went and bought a dog after receiving the okay from the roommates but one of the roommates turned her in.

My lease renewal did not have any option to include or disinclude parking, which was included on my original lease. I received an email that my parking is being revoked and I now have to park 10 minutes away from apartment complex. I never received any notice of any changes to my lease prior to or... Read more »
It might be a good idea to review the lease and the local L&T law in the context of the statutes, but you are probably within your rights to give notice that you will not be renewing and, if you are month-to-month or under the notice period provided by the lease or local law, stay under the old...Read more »
We've always paid our rent even during covid. Is there any rights we have to get at least another month? We have 5 kids and 2 of us. It's hard finding a place now that is 3bd and not ridiculously expensive in such a limited time frame.
The answer is, unfortunately, not really. Landlord's have the right to give notice to a tenant at the end of a lease term. It sounds like you were on a month-to-month lease (correct me if I'm wrong as it would change the case entirely).
My tenants rent is paid in entirety by Baltimore Regional Housing Partnership (BRHP). Our lease is month to month, and states 60 days notice must be given. The lease is between my tenant & I, and does not involve BRHP. I just want to make sure there are no extra COVID laws I need to abide... Read more »
You can always sell the property subject to an existing lease and the new owner must honor the lease terms and any other agreements you made with BRHP. If you want to terminate the tenant's lease and and sell the property without tenants in possession or subject to the terms of any lease or...Read more »
