I don't know where you reside, but dumpsters are often regulated at a local/township level. Some cities have ordinances that require you to obtain a "dumpster permit" even if it will be placed on your private property. You may want to contact your local/city/municipal township for...Read more »
It can be paid at once or payment in installment should be ok. How it's paid is up to you and your attorney. As long as both you and your counsel agree to the payment method, it will be lawful. You may want to make sure how it's paid is set forth in the retainer agreement.

We did not sign a new lease. It says specifically in our lease that once it expires we would be on a month to month contract. We agreed to stay for one year via text but now want to leave with 30 days written notice. Is the text a legal document even if the lease says it’s month to month?
It's possible that you entered into a binding contract through your text messages. However, it is also possible the landlord won't pursue you for breaching that contract if you provide adequate notice and especially if you find another tenant that is ready willing and able to take over...Read more »
