On Sept 1st they still didn't let me know what the plan was so I put house on zillow to vet new tenants. I also sent them a 30 day... Read more »
Saying it would just be a couple days all they had to do was replace a panel they forgot to but when the fire marshal returned when the panel was replaced he did a fuller inspection and found the dryer was so full of lint it was actually all the way up in the ceiling going about 40 feet back. This... Read more »
Your question references a condition at the property which could've, but in actuality did not adversely affect you. In the eyes of the law, you lack standing to sue, because you have not suffered a particularized injury traceable to the hotel's conduct. Sure, you...Read more »
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. They are stating we were violating a noise ordinance w our car engine. When they said they had video and i must pay the 50 dollar fine, i asked to see it and... Read more »
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 »

There are certain requirements a landlord must follow before eviction, including serving the tenant with a notice to quit, and then filing an eviction suit and getting a writ of eviction. It sounds like this process may not have been followed in your case. It would be best for you to consult with a...Read more »
I made an oral agreement to sublease the defendant's apartment room for 4 months and I paid the first-month rental as a deposit. Twenty hours after I paid the money, I decided not to rent this room and requested my deposit back, however, he refused to give the money back. He said he... 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. My preference would be to ask him to move out and keep the condo unit we've been renting since 2008 to myself. I was the only one who signed the lease, but we are both listed as tenents. I am not...

Her buy off the lease until the person who is still living there gets approved to live there with the new people moving in. The landlords told her she is still going to have to pay rent even though they are taking a long time to go through the back ground checks and other steps Need for the other... Read more »
Your friend signed a contract, jointly with whomever else is on the lease, obligating them all, collectively, to the terms of the lease. The landlord doesn't have to do anything. Are the other people paying rent? Will they agree to pay your friend's share? Unless they do, your friend will...Read more »
She did not tell us she was moving out, she has changed her address but has not removed any of her belongings from the property. What can we do to get her to get her stuff out so we can find a new tenant?
Best thing to do is formally evict her. Serve her with proper notice to quit, and tell her she can resolve everything by coming to get her stuff and terminate the lease in writing. If need be, evict her, then serve her with notice that you'll consider her property abandoned after a reasonable...Read more »
Generally, a third party such as a landlord is not liable for the criminal acts of others. Further, landlords are almost never responsible for tenants' personal property. However, some factors may shift more responsibility on the landlord such as whether the fake cameras were placed in...Read more »

You can evict tenants without a written lease, however I'm not sure how you'll go about showing lost equipment / assets if they weren't written down. You could establish a rent amount by showing bank statements / proof of payment. Otherwise, you'll have a tough time showing what the rent is.
I informed my apartment management that I was moving At the end of my lease. I was looking at homes prior to the “Shelter in Place” by the Governor. Now I don’t think it’s safe to look or move but I don’t wanna sign a new lease.
Yes. You would become a month-to-month tenant, and many apartment complexes charge more for that. The reason being that you can then leave with 30 days notice and not be liable for any remaining lease payments.
I am an international student planning to study in the US (Michigan). There is a strong chance I won't be able to get my visa and actually move in, but my landlord is saying that if that happens I will still have to pay all rent due under my lease. Is this true?
It may be true. If you want to avoid liability you could insist that the lease provide for your option to terminate it if you don't receive the visa. If it's too late and the lease has already been signed, you could try to sublet the leased premises. We would have to examine the lease...Read more »

I am a landlord who has a tenant that missed his payment for this month. That tenant is also violating the lease agreement by having way too many people living at that house and smoking marijuana. My question is am I able to start an eviction process after April 17th or did the date change with the... Read more »
I believe that date is extended with the new executive order. Keep in mind that even if you were to file, it will be some time before a hearing happens. Unless you have a police report, it sounds like you'll need to do a 30-day notice to quit for the lease violation, only after which the court...Read more »
