• Can my landlord make me stay and pay rent for another month even though I informed my roommate I was leaving?

    So last year in December, my ex-girlfriend and I signed a year long lease. Unfortunately, things did not work out and a few months ago, we mutually decided not to renew the lease together. She expressed desire in renewing the lease by herself or asking the landlord to add someone else but obviously, it was none of my concern since I already decided I was not going to be residing there anymore. She eventually settled on a roommate who wouldn’t be able to move in until January (leaving her to pay December’s rent on her own. Assuming that she would handle speaking to the landlord about renewing the lease, I made accommodations to move out by December 5th. Today, she informed me that she contacted the landlord and he has stated that I have to pay December’s rent because “all tenants have to pay last months rent”. But if the lease ends exactly on December 5th.. doesn’t that mean I paid the last months rent in January? Is he penalizing me for not giving him 30 day notice that we both wouldn’t be renewing the lease?

  • I hate my roommate, but we're stuck in a lease together, any chance I can persuade my landlord to let me move out?

    She's often late with her house rent, never once has paid utilities on time (paid utilities to me, I'm the principal tenant. She moved in with me after I was already living here for several months) She tries to push my buttons at every turn, runs the place like it's hers, is extremely rude to me, and... show more
    She's often late with her house rent, never once has paid utilities on time (paid utilities to me, I'm the principal tenant. She moved in with me after I was already living here for several months) She tries to push my buttons at every turn, runs the place like it's hers, is extremely rude to me, and even admitted the only reason she moved in, was so that she could wait till I move out, and then her friend could move in. I've had it with her, and either she goes, or I go, but do you think I could ask my landlord to either help me with getting her out of the lease, and asking her to leave, or getting me out of the lease, so at least I can move out

  • Is there such a thing as a studio apartment but as a house?

    I am a musician who needs to practice and often is only to practice late at night or early in the morning. Because of this an apartment is out of the question. Is there anything like a studio or a loft apartment but on its one like a house? so, like a one room house?

    Hi, I m a paralegal and I have to do the legwork on this. I get that I shouldn t rely on yahoo answers for this, but in hoping this can point me in the right direction. About client: Has been living in the same apartment for years. Lease is yearly. Has been paying rent late the last year or so so he doesn t think they would allow him to renew lease this time. Lease is up at the end of Nov (so a little over a week from now). He asked the landlord s manager about a month ago if he d be allowed to renew, she said she did not know and would get back to him. Never did. Now he just emailed the landlord s assistant today asking if he can renew the lease and if not, if he can have an extra 30 days; she emailed him back saying she will get back to him on that. Again, lease is up in a little over a week. I think there is some sort of clause stating they must give him ample amount of time if they choose not to let him renew the lease. They have not. Anyone will legal knowledge on what his rights are? Citations appreciated. Thanks!

  • He's in the process of buying a house. He and I are not married and we have 3 kids together. What do I do if he doesn't put me on the deed?

    Best answer: Your statement says it all. He is in the process of buying a house.

    You would need to sit down and discuss how you feel about this purchase. Perhaps he is not aware of your feelings. Perhaps he is considering the fact that you would not be contributing financially to the purchase.

    You should notice a lot of perhaps. This is because we have no idea. It is up to you to find out his feelings about the purchase of the house.

    How do you know he plan to not add your name to the title deed. You do not need to be employed to be added to the mortgage loan application or the title deed to the house.

    You have no one else to ask. You have him to ask. You might or might not get the answer you want, however, you need to ask.

    I hope this has been of some benefit to you, good luck.

    Hey everyone. I am a male aged 20 have a good job and I live with my girlfriend who also has a job(She's 18). We live in my parents basement. We pay our own cell bills, the internet for the whole house (internet cost 100$) buy all our groceries and most of the time are out if the house when working or out enjoying life. We currently pay 600 dollars including the internet. I have recently got a better job and can start saving for my own life. Now I have been told we have to start paying 800 dollars plus the internet for 900 dollars. I am puzzled and am not sure if we are being treated fair or treated like a bank. We do not eat their food besides when they invite us to eat for 1 or 2 nights a week. We keep to ourselves in a bedroom with a tv a ps4 and a computer. We sleep and go to work practically. In my area there is places for rent that are 1000 dollars that have everything included and space for parking and it's actually private. But I amm being told that my parents belive they are charging is fair. And we won't find a better deal. I'm too young to know if this seems fair. Anyone give me some advice. Thanks alot folks.

    I’m super uneducated when it comes to the subject of investing/buying/renting homes, etc. but I really want to learn. I graduate this year with my bachelors degree, and right off the bat I can make at least 60K. However, I’m in the healthcare field & still have many years to go, which is why I’m taking one year off to just work rather than study. If I were to work for one year and make 60K and save ALL of it & not spend a single dime (I am blessed for my fam). Would I be able to buy my first home? Or do they want to see a continual salary? And IF I’m able to buy a house, what would be the price range that I would be able to afford? (Cali) Thank you! :)

We are not going through a nasty divorce or anything. We don't have kids. We both agreed to go our own ways. We are not getting attorneys or nothing, just going to court house and doing a simple divorce. Can I buy a home without including her in the paperwork? I talked to her and she is fine with that. I want to know if legally I can do this? (Maryland by the way)

  • Should my mum work for longer?

    My mum works Monday Tuesday and Wednesday but my dad works all 5 days of the week. She doesn t want to work for extra days because she has to clean, but this means that we have no money.
