You can talk to your landlord and try to settle the rent problem. But he might take the money, then continue the Detainer litigation. It may be best to look elsewhere for housing, as he may already have a new renter with money. It will take some time to actually remove you from the property.
The tenant has stayed in one of my spare rooms, paying on a month to month basis. The tenant has stayed for 9 months.No written rental agreement was made, but a verbal agreement was made. The tenant is moving out currently, but refuses to pay for rent in September. Is there anything I can legally... Read more »
Paid $800 deposit plus $200 for pet. The warrant said a broken window, already broken, missing shelves and closet rods, and damage to cabinets. There was only 1 closet rod when I moved in, and the drawer was taped in 1 cabinet because it kept falling apart. That being said, I'm confused as to... Read more »
You do not "file" for adverse possession. If you are serious, then hire a very competent attorney who actually conducts real property litigation (not closings), and pay him alot of money for advice what to do for the next several years.
The Detainer Warrant is filed by the Owner as plaintiff, but the property manager can be the witness to the lease contract breach. You can argue to the Judge that the landlord lacks standing to file the Detainer, but the Court might ignore you, or the owner then just files suit and serves you in...Read more »
Car in my name, lease is also in my name, tow company recked car, and I took pictures and videos to prove that, the reason why I did not remove the car is that I was not in town for 10 days. I found out about the notice and the whole incident when I came back.
Yes you should be able to sue the landlord and his agent, the tow company, for tort damages to property and possibly conversion. But you will need witnesses that will testify to the towing, which will be tough. Damages really need an expert about the car's pre-tort value. General...Read more »
I was unable to reach my landlord and it was day 33 of having emergent safety concerns submitted to maintenance. (Window fell out of wall, breaker was sparking/blowing, floor caved in, no smoke detectors/sprinklers/extinguishers, and they building failed building and code inspection) I sent my 60... Read more »
Read your lease contract. It probably allows for the landlord/owner to enter the leasehold. Most tenants would be happy that the landlord was taking care of the premises. Even if they were supposed to give you notice, what damages could you put into evidence?
Not sure of your relationship with this matter. But the landlord or owner should have already filed a Detainer Warrant with Sessions Court. It must be served or posted, as the owner should probably only seek possession. Hire a competent attorney to file this tomorrow.
I considered it abandonment. I posted the information to contact me. Nothing. They pulled a mattress and boxes if other junk out and left it in the rain. They also left the door open with the key in it. I locked it and a month later I put their stuff in storage. Now they're threatening to have... Read more »
Tenant violated the same clause in the lease multiple times in less than 6 months. Tenant wanted to negotiate vacating the premises and LL refused. LL filed formal eviction in the court and tenant was served. Tenant vacated property 2 weeks later. Tenant is countersuing for deposit and lawyer... Read more »
I recommend hiring a competent attorney to sue for possession. A Detainer Warrant may work if the SOL has not run, but an Ejectment Action in a Court of Record may be necessary. Publication Notice may also be necessary. This could be difficult, or it could be fairly simple. Hopefully it is no...Read more »
