You need to contact an attorney in your area quickly. If you cannot afford one, this is a situation your local legal aid office may provide assistance for. This doesn't sound right, and smacks of an illegal eviction.

Without a written lease, you have a month to month rental agreement (oral agreement). Therefore, they would have to give you 30 days notice. You should also note that in Michigan there are new measures in place with the district courts related to the residential eviction process that require more...Read more »
My roommates and I have been in quarantine for over a month and have made it clear to the landlord that we aren’t comfortable with it and that we have been quarantined. She stills says we can’t opt out. Is she right or can we do something about it?

If this man's presence would be a lease violation, that is something for the landlord to address, but it may also negatively impact the woman. If there is a concern about her mental or emotional well-being, you could contact Adult Protective Services.
It sounds as if you are requesting to see your landlord's payment ledger. There is no 'law' per se, however, if you are challenging how you made your payments or how they were credited, you should have copies of your own payment receipts through cancelled checks or money orders....Read more »

The stairs to get in and out of the apartment need to be rebuilt. And the landlord disagrees and thinks it only needs to have a few repairs. The stairs are dangerous and I hate to see anything happen to anyone.
The sister and brother are only heirs, the brother wants nothing.

A probate case may be necessary in order for the heirs to convey title to the property. If you have the cash or could get financing to pay off the mortgage, the transaction is fairly simple for an attorney to handle.

Tenant owed 5 month rent and 1k water bill due to eviction ban and no shutoff utility as Covid19. Township can't get the bill paid but decided to add the water bill to landlord property tax. Is it correct? what I should do except file eviction? Thanks!
In most jurisdictions, a water bill is a lien on the land, and so ultimately is the responsibility of the property owner. That is why many landlords elect to keep the water bill in their name and charge the tenant for the water either as part of the rent or additional to it.
This tennant has previously herassed us. No where in contract states being fined and refuse to show me the video taken of us unknowingly.

I think you're limited to either pay the fine or not and face whatever actions the park can take against you (e.g. eviction). This doesn't sound like a criminal matter, and the park is not a government entity, so your rights are limited.
Depends on how and why the police are involved. If it's drugs, then yes. Even if there is not cause by law, obviously the landlord will be keeping a eye on you, and so you may want to think about 1) what you can do to not have so much police contact at the home (because that reputation can...Read more »

I don’t like to be the bearer of bad news, but I don’t see a basis for a rescission of the lease, or a claim that the other party breached the agreement, so I would say based upon these facts, that the landlord is in the right. Is there a basis for a claim that the landlord breached the agreement?
I've been with my boyfriend for 14 years an plan on breaking up within the next 4-ish weeks.
