Probably yes, but it depends on your lease. The landlord has to keep the apartment in a habitable condition, and not having air conditioning probably renders the apartment uninhabitable in the summertime in Oklahoma. That does not necessarily mean you can break your lease, but the landlord is...Read more »

Change the locks and when she leaves for the day, don't let her back in. Otherwise, other than physically throwing her out which is not proper, you would have to file a small claims action against her to have her removed lawfully.

Yes. The best evidence of that oral agreement would be where they each shared the utilities the previous months that they lived together.If she can prove those utility payments were shared jointly then her testimony of an oral agreement would have more persuasive affect before the Court in case her...Read more »
You can file an action called an entry and detainer immediately after the tenant breaches the rental agreement for failing to pay the rent on the due date. You do not have to give written notice if the tenant is delinquent on their rent.

The answer is that you can be written up for just about any reason but the main issue is does the reason for the write up violate any provisions of Section 8 or not. Being the victim of a crime is not a legal reason for being evicted.

Since your son hasn't executed a contract with the park owner, he would need to look at the contract signed between the person he was gifted the home from and the property owner and see what the conditions on the home are. Take the contract to an attorney for help.

In general, you are not entitled to have the judgment reduced merely because the landlord re-rented within 2 months. You could have the judgment reduced if there was an agreement in place that says the judgment could be reduced.
This is not a listed condition in the statutes that empowers you to withhold rent. Put your landlord on notice in writing that there is a hazard that needs to be fixed. Without looking at your lease, an attorney cannot tell you what all your rights may be under the facts of your case.
Yes he can charge you for damages if there are damages. If you left the premises in good condition when you moved then you should contact him and set a time to go over the premises if he claims damages. At that point you will know if your going to get your deposit back or not. The time limitation...Read more »
