What happened? Assuming no criminal charges, you may wish to make the landlord go through the entire process for eviction. A Detainer Warrant must be filed, served or posted, a Judgment for Possession rendered, and if you are not out or appeal within 10 days, a Writ of Possession is issued and...Read more »
It appears they found your Husband through you. Your Husband should have been served with whatever suit was filed, and should have defended himself. Now he must immediately file to set aside what may be a Default Judgment, or file an Appeal, hopefully an Appeal De Novo. He must act fast and...Read more »
My boyfriend's car has expired tags and they just a notice on it today that it will be towed. I searched through the lease agreement and I cannot find any information regarding a vehicle with expired tags. It only states they can tow if the vehicle is parked illegally like if it's in a...

Thank you for your question. Absent more information, I cannot give a definitive answer. However, many apartment leases include a "disabled vehicle" clause. This clause usually states that the apartment reserves the right to tow vehicles that they believe to be disabled or an eyesore (due...Read more »
I moved out of an apartment on July 31, 2020. The leasing office mailed me an “estimated list” of charges on September 14, 2020 in which the letter also indicated that I would receive a final charge list shortly after. After not receiving any follow up communication I began reaching out towards... Read more »
You were served prior to Court, so what is the problem? A continuance is possible, but it appears you have no defense to an Unlawful Detainer Warrant. I suggest you start looking for somewhere else to live, and not pay April's rent.
I recommend you go to Court to make sure no more rent or costs are given to the Plaintiff than should be due. It can probably be one of the first cases called if you talk to the Plaintiff landlord and agree to a Judgment, maybe getting a security deposit back.
Can they do that ? If you never was given a notice about the new owners never signed any lease agreement with the new owners , and the only reason I stopped paying my recent landlord is because no one was coming to fix maintenance issues in my apartment, the constant bugs and mold and water coming...

Consider consulting a local attorney to address your issues. But generally, a landlord can sell their property and assign the tenants' leases/contracts to the new owner. This is called an "assignment." You should also look to the terms of your lease to see how the contract addresses...Read more »

My apartment complex got bought out by a new management company and has somehow moved me out of their system. They have now switched over to online rent payment option only and i have no way now of making my payments due to the webiste saying there is no record of me living at the adress. No one in...

Yes, I would go talk to the management company in person. If the facts are as you describe, they should be able to fix the error in their system. You could also write letters/emails to the management company describing the issue and asking them to rectify. If you are still unable to resolve this,...Read more »
You have not stated whether a Detainer Warrant was filed or not. But if you have some kind of proof or an admission the landlord or his agent took your property, you can sue for Conversion. Be careful of your defendant's name and and service. General Sessions is probably the best forum....Read more »
The mobile home is your problem as it is your property if the certificate of title is registered to you. Sometimes you can sell the home, but you will need to start soliciting buyers quick and there will be little money offered. After a Judgment For Possession goes down against you, it will be...Read more »
Nashville: I am a landlord that has a signed lease agreement with a tenant for 12-months of which 6-months were fulfilled. The tenant is currently at my property, hasn’t paid rent and stated the he does not plan to pay.
What are the steps that I need to take to ensure the tenant is... Read more »
Hire a competent attorney in the Davidson County area. Get him to file a Detainer Warrant and prosecute it until the occupant is gone. Do not get security deposits anymore, due to the Landlord/Tenant Act applying there. Hopefully the virus mess will not hold you up, but file the Detainer asap.
I already had an eviction notice for violations and I had taken care of them and my landlord signed off that they were resolved but now is sending me a non lease renewal notice for these violations that were already taken care of and signed off
Most likely your landlord can do this. The eviction notice is about forcing you to leave during a current lease. It seems that your previous actions resolved those issues so the eviction was not completed. Once a lease is complete, there is no legal obligation for the lease to continue unless the...Read more »
I do not see a way that this would be illegal under TN law. Your facts say the landlord only inspected the one room that she made arrangements to inspect and did not enter the other two. In general there is no expectation of privacy in the shared areas in a house where multiple renters live. She...Read more »
My former landlord is attempting to deduct the cost of repainting nearly the entire interior of the home I was renting from my security deposit. The paint hasn’t been damaged more than normal wear and tear (nail holes and drywall anchor holes, both were present in a smaller quantity when I moved... Read more »
They can charge for items above normal wear and tear. Sounds like the answer to your question is likely "no" and you're not being properly charged. But without seeing the property or knowing more, hard to say for sure.
