Generally, contracts/ leases are not modified unless both parties agree, consent, to the modifications. However, without seeing the lease agreement and without more facts a local landlord tenant attorney would be unable to answer your question. If you have not reached out to a local landlord tenant...Read more »
It is unlikely that someone actually evicted you when they were not allowed to - if you believed they were not allowed to, you should have taken the matter to court and had a Judge dismiss their efforts. If, however, you simply moved out as a result of their request, that is not really evicting...Read more »
Washer/dryer, delivery/installation were purchased directly from a big box store (BBS). BBS hired a third party for D/I. Install done incorrectly, water flowed from washer during first cycle. Installer admitted & corrected install. Damage repair requires asbestos abatement. BBS says not... Read more »
If you have not made a claim with your own rental insurance you should do so. Additionally, depending on what your lease agreement says you or your rental insurance may be responsible for the repairs and depending on the contract you signed with the installer/store as well.

I have a 60 day warranty. I brought it back after one week and told them we’re where issues, they said I’d have to pay 180 for diagnostic even though on paper it said 60 days DEALERSHIP PAYS for labor, parts used, diagnostics, etc. still tried to make me pay, decided whatever, power steering... Read more »
It sounds like you may have enough evidence for a potential lawsuit. Of course, an attorney would need to verify the content of the contract and the diagnostic tests. This is a malpractice case and a breach of contract case. It is a breach of contract because they are not honoring the warranty...Read more »

I was driving on that road and struck the branch ( it fell down in front of my car It happened within 2-3 seconds ) residents of that... Read more »
I am not clear what the responsibilities are for the arbor maintenance between the homeowner and an apparent HOA, but whichever is, they may be liable depending upon the details. Much depends upon why the tree limb fell - was it rotted out? or did a storm severe it somehow? I would start by...Read more »

I was given an offer of employment. I accepted the position and I quit my job to take the new job.

I signed a paper saying I was getting a dollar raise back in November, we are now in January and I have not received my raise on my paychecks. My pay stubs still say the same amount. I have talked to my boss more than one time about this and was told the bookkeeper was going to fix this but has not... Read more »
Other than quitting, or bugging them, they really is not much you can do until you are no longer employed there. Once you leave, assuming they do not fix it, then you have some options that will get you the back wages and likely penalties as well.
When an unmarried couple separates, Oregon courts attempt to determine the parties’ intent when deciding whether and how to divide property acquired during the relationship. The key inquiry is whether the parties intended to “pool their resources for their common benefit.”
If you are asking if you write "Paid in Full" on a check's memo line and submit it for less than the full amount of the bill, and it is cashed, are you off the hook for the balance of the bill, the answer is NO. If you have a written agreement specifying the creditor is settling for...Read more »
The landloard just sent me 90 eviction notice with one month payment check ,claiming he will renovate the apartment ,i need to know my rights can i stay until my lease contract ends on Feb2022,What can i ask for compensation ,and what if i didn't evict after the 90 days .
Much depends upon the exact wording of your 90 day notice and the situation. Normally a landlord could only do a no-cause termination of tenancy with notice if you were on a month to month tenancy, NOT a fixed term (prior to the term expiring). Perhaps your situation is different if there is true...Read more »
A landlord has the right to enter the rental dwelling to inspect, do repairs, and to show to prospective buyers or future tenants. There is nothing special about showing to potential buyers - at least 24 hours advanced notice is required unless the tenant agrees to an earlier entry. Tenant does...Read more »

Today he received a letter saying that that has been rescinded and it is now going to be month to month. Out of 3 units he was the only one put on month to month and when he asked the landlord he...

Had he signed and accepted the offer prior to the rescission, there is likely nothing the landlord could have done. But if he rescinded before your boyfriend accepted the renewed term lease, your boyfriend in now likely going to be on a month to month. But that is not the end of the world - to...Read more »

An Oregon attorney could advise best, as obligations to disclose can differ according to state law. But your question remains open for two weeks.
