I recently moved out of an apartment in Tennessee. Despite multiple requests, I was never given a walk-through. In addition, we left 2 weeks before our lease ended due to fear of COVID-19, and the fact that we did not feel our apartment was following CDC Guidelines.
Venue will basically be the County and State of the leasehold. If you do not pay what is demanded, then the landlord can sue you in that County, but will have to try to collect any Judgment against you. If there was a security deposit, than that might be something to sue for.
I asked her to leave and she refuses. She threatened to shoot me if I evict her. She then threatened to burn my house down. Also stating she could hide my body for a year before anyone asked about me. By then the cops will have more important things to do than worry about finding my body. She has... Read more »
File a Detainer Warrant in General Sessions Court For Possession Only. It must be served or posted. Do not ask for rent money or costs. If she is not out within 10 days of the Judgment, hire a lawyer just to get a Writ of Possession issued and executed. Do not get in a fight, or she will get...Read more »
Your lease will control how the lease is renewed. Look at your lease. The lease may automatically renew- unless you give notice of termination. It may renew if you give notice that you are renewing- either either of those- your notice was enough.
No contract has been signed. The agency/property managers did not disclose that the security deposit would be non-refundable prior to paying the security deposit. As soon as the payment was made they stated it was not refundable.
Landlords refuse return of security deposits all the time. You usually have to sue in General Sessions if you really want it back. The oral statements are pretty much irrelevant as the monies are supposed to be for a security against leasehold damages.
Not sure of your question. But that is a Detainer Warrant for possession of the leasehold. The owner wants the renter out and may also want unpaid rental payments. Go to Court and ask for return of the security deposit if there is one. Start looking for another place to live. You might get...Read more »
I have a contract to buy/live in a camper. The other party is extorting me for more than agreement, and wont let me back In my home. I've already paid 2600 of the 3300 we originally agreed upon and now she wants an additional $1000 out of no where. I have been told if I am seen near the camper... Read more »
I would retain a local attorney soon to file suit against the former owner of the camper. You can also call the police and make a charge of harassment or theft; however, I would let your attorney know before you do that.
I have tried to rent a home from 3 different rental MGMT companies and was refused because I draw unemployment right now. All of them said I had to have a job or be employeed and could be verified. Why will they rent to someone that draws disability that is verifiable, and they do not have a job,... Read more »
I'm sorry for your frustrating ordeal. Your post remains open for three weeks, and at this point, you could try reaching out to Tennessee landlord-tenant attorneys.

In 2011 I purchased a mobile home and placed it on my 2nd lot & negotiated the same terms for family that my dad set which was... Read more »
I assume you filed a Detainer Warrant, which the Defendant is appealing de novo to Circuit. With this he will need to post a Bond, which you need to argue the amount of. His paying taxes may allow him to claim it, but that number of years does not give him a presumption of ownership. Adverse...Read more »
Unless you are her Attorney In Fact or other Fiduciary, no, you have no standing. You might check the Deed to see who is the actual owner, so maybe you have an interest. She needs to file a Detainer Warrant today. Actually it may be too late and require Ejectment. She needs a competent attorney...Read more »
My landlord has a contract with our city to fix his own properties and we have asked him for months to come and fix our bathroom, kitchen, ceiling tiles, and our closets which have no ceiling in them resulting in our clothes being ruined.
It is very hard to get a Detainer Warrant Hearing now. And it appears you might have him close to being out. You may be able to assist in packing his things, but do not get in an argument. See if you can get him out prior to June 1. If not then file your Detainer for possession only.
