As well as get out of my lease early if needed. I've been the only tentant apporched about smoking on my back porch outside. There was no other tentants told about smoking outside only inside the apartments. Which didn't start happening until My rent wasn't paid that month. Which was... Read more »
Anyone can sue anyone for anything, but it there has been a breach of your written lease, the proper defendant would be the lessor, not the property management company. Harrassment on account of smoking or a dislike of a tenant is not a cognizable cause of action in Missouri. If you were being...Read more »
You've not provided any facts so there's no way to determine whether you are entitled to a return of your security deposit. If you are looking to terminate your lease before the agreed-up term expires, then it is unrealistic to believe that your landlord will simple agree to a mutual...Read more »

It’s not clear what you wish to hire an attorney to do for you. If no lawsuit has been filed against you then there’s no lawsuit to defend. You can check Casenet for the status of Missouri state court cases.
I left early, but paid for all of January, notified them at the beginning of January. They listed the property and said that if it was filled before the lease was up, I would get the deposit. They filled it and the new tennant is moving in Feb. 1. Thehy are now saying that they are... Read more »
You didn’t ask a question. If you believe your landlord violated the security deposit statute you may sue in small claims court. Before doing so, make sure your lease doesn’t obligate you to pay your landlord’s attorney’s fees if you lose.
Obviously, I do not know all of the facts. If a judgment was entered against you and the sheriff came to give you notice to vacate before carrying out the judgment but returning possession to the landlord then it's "legal." It takes a lawsuit, service or posting of the summons,...Read more »
I've lived in my apartment home for 8yrs an I want to stay in my home all landlord tells me is it's so he can remodel my apartment he won't renew lease an I can't come back to my home after he remodels it. Help I don't want to move out of my home
After a tenant moves out, the landlord does not have a duty to store the tenant’s property. Landlord has to make the property available to the tenant for a “reasonable “ amount of time (maybe a few days), then the property is treated as abandoned by the tenant and can be disposed of.
When a rental property is sold and there is a written lease for a term already in place on that property, the new owner takes the property subject to the lease. So your lease would still be in place, provided it is in writing.
If the summons was posted then that is good service for entry of a judgment against you for possession, but not for money damages. If service was truly invalid then you can hire an attorney and file motion for relief from void judgment and a stay of execution.
We've lived with this friend for 14-15 months. The little apartment attached to the garage only has a toilet and sink. We cook with askillet or hot plate. We also go to our friend's house to take a shower because there is none in this apartment area. Back in July, me, my husband and our... Read more »
The would depend upon whether you satisfy the requirements and submit the required affidavit under penalty of perjury. Also, if you are month-to-month and the landlord chooses to terminate, then you could still be sued for unlawful detainer, as opposed to rent and possession....Read more »

You did not ask a specific question but I’ll address your post. If you are subject to a written lease then the lease terms control, not the landlord’s unilateral attempts to change the terms. But if the lease states payment is due the first then it’s due the first each month.
There is no way to answer this question without more information. If you are a month-to-month tenant, you are entitled to one month's notice. If you are not paying rent, there is a shorter notice required.
September 1st for the reason of paying rent late and my rent Payment was always coming from somewhere different each month. I am a single mom of 2 and just went through a divorce, tore my meniscus on my knee requiring surgery and 3 months later had to have a hysterectomy due to a prolapsed uterus.... Read more »
At the end of a lease for a term the lease converts to month-to-month. In that type of lease, the landlord can give notice to vacate if the rent is not paid. The tenant must be given the option to pay the past due rent and all other sums owed under the lease. If the tenant does this within the time...Read more »

If your landlord has followed Missouri statutory eviction rules s/he has more rights than if s/he has not. A tenant’s hardships generally are not a factor. If your landlord has not worked through the court system to evict you his or her actions are not lawful. You should talk with an attorney to...Read more »
