Septembers rent. I was served on 10/13/23 and have court date 10/23/23. I was told if I paid the rent owed it would stop the eviction. As of October I owe additional $1,100 but the eviction notice only has Septembers rent listed and I never received a 5 day demand notice for the month of October.... View More
In Rhode Island, the eviction process for non-payment of rent typically starts with a 5-day demand notice. If the eviction notice you were served only lists the amount due for September, and you were not given a separate 5-day demand notice for October, then technically, the eviction proceeding is...View More
I received a 5 day demand notice but was unable to pay rent in that time frame. I was served with a court date for eviction due to non payment of rent. If rent is paid by the court date can I still be evicted?
In Rhode Island, you cannot be evicted for non-payment of rent if you pay the full amount due before the eviction court date. However, you may still be evicted for other reasons, such as violating the lease agreement. If you are facing eviction, it is important to communicate with your landlord and...View More
She is accusing us of stealing 4 or 5 in-window A/C units, which she lent to us for the year, but we definitely did not take.

You might have a case against your former landlord. While it is true that landlords can deduct for damage, missing air conditioners are not exactly damage. Also, landlords can deduct for repairs but they have to send you an itemization within twenty (20) days. You said that you didn't get...View More

A Rhode Island attorney could advise best, but your question remains open for a week. If their response is in compliance with the terms of the policy, it isn't necessarily "Bad Faith," one of the posted categories - it might be more of a coverage issue. If it should be a covered loss...View More

We keep the areas clean, there is nothing she would need access to for any other unit in either area, the lease doesn't state anything about it, we store our eBay store items that we sell in the areas and don't want anyone to have access to these items
Yes, you have to give the landlord a key to the storage room and garage that you are renting from the landlord. Your landlord has a right of access to all areas of the landlord's property that you are renting, and can enter any area on reasonable notice to you.

I had to move back in with my father and his wife until I can purchase a home. I have fear of his wife as she has verbally assaulted and threatened me numerous times.

So the police put a NCO on him because he hit me and now he has a felony. Now we are getting along and he is helping out with my kids. I got accepted into housing and want to add him on my lease so I don’t get in trouble when he’s there all the time. The landlord for low income housing needs... View More
You may want to go to the court to explain to the judge that you wish to have the NCO dropped to enable you to enjoy cohabitation and co-parent. If you just really need help with the kids and you are, in fact still in fear of imminent harm that supports a NCO, then you should probably seek the...View More
On December 17th, we met with the owner who gave her 30 days. And just a few days ago, she is asking for rent when the 30 days are not up. What can a landlord do at that point? Can they legally change the locks? What options do we legally have? Thank you for your time in advance.
If the threats are of imminent physical or bodily harm, seek a protective order. If your local law enforcement will not assist you in removing this now unwelcome guest, you may have to file a formal eviction. This is where the help of a private attorney will be most useful.

The offer-er is the master of their offer and you are free to come to whatever arrangements you like. I might suggest you set a deadline for the late fee waiver to give them some incentive to catch up.
I helped find a short-term place for them to live (I do not reside there). To make things easier, I have been collecting their rent and providing the landlord with a check each month. No lease has been provided to the students. A few students returned to Europe before our school term ended. Who is... View More

Reasonable times may vary. If the pipes have burst, a reasonable time (to have the water turned off) will be far shorter than say, if the hot water was not working. It is difficult to say precisely based on the very limited information given.
My bf is being charged with B&E after a dumb argument we had in my apartment. He isn’t technically on my lease, but he does pretty much live with me. He is asking me to write in his name on the lease I do have, without telling the landlord. Is this illegal? If I do do this( will they contact... View More
You will need to provide notice to the tenant regarding the damage to the apartment/house with an itemization of the cost to repair and you can pursue those damages in a court action if they are in an amount to be worthwhile. I would also evaluate whether or not the former tenant has...View More
