    My landlord is really nice. However, they just don't follow our contractual agreement. My apartment has no fire alarm, or carbon monoxide dector required by law. I 3 months ago and have yet to recieve the proper equipment. My bathroom sink has beenout of order for 3 months. I have been constanly giving verbal reminders and am getting an "okay" with no action following. My oven is broken and he is asking my husband to repair. Last time i checked our only obligation was to pay the rent on time which we do above and beyond. Sometimes we even pay months in advance. I feel like I am being walked on and I will not tolerate it. We work hard for our money to pay to live comfortably. The family lives downstairs from us and his wife does not work. They just sit back and collect money without holding up their end of the agreement. When you decide to rent you property to someone you must have everything up to code. Otherwise you should not rent! I don't understand how that is not understood. I have never been late with rent and I'm so pissed off because he has been ignoring me for days when his car is in the driveway. Can't move right now because I am pregnant and in graduate school + working for the state full-time. Any practical advice would be helpful.

    A gentleman from out of state moved to this state in order to obtain a medical marijuana card for legitimate reasons. He showed me the doctors paperwork, and I honestly feel bad for him. So, I guess if that works for him so be it, I've heard the studies on the news, etc, although I don't use it. He's coming from a state where he just got charged with possession of marijuana, and a DUI. He told me he was innocent of the DUI, but took it as a plea deal because they wanted to charge him with felony possession for a little over a half ounce. Here in my state, you can have 10 ounces and it's legal. (my brother in law is into it) I called his lawyers office to confirm this, and it checks out..... He seems like a really nice guy and is kind and polite. I was having reservations though once I saw his background check, although his credit is excellent, his fees are paid up, and his income checks out. Should I, or would anyone even consider renting to someone like this? I have other applicants interested, but no offence, even with the clean records, the seem like they may be trouble, and/or deadbeats...

    I am month-to-month tenancy at a trailer community in Concord, North Carolina. On July 12th my husband wrote out a 30-day written notice in front of someone at the Concord office saying that we were leaving the property. The landlord company, which is in Virginia, is saying that our 30-day written notice was not properly given and we are responsible for a full month's rent in August even though we weren't there any in August. They are saying in order to not be responsible for August we would have had to have given notice on exactly July 1st. No one at the office instructed us otherwise. We had already turned the keys in before getting a letter in the mail 10 days later saying we were responsible for $610 minus our $300 security deposit. We had been there a long time and have put up with insufficient repairs and lack of repairs. I have photographic evidence where the office and the maintenance workers had blatantly ignored safety concern problems which pushed us to move out. Please help!

  • Super Loud Upstairs Apartment Neighbors?

    Okay so, we lived in an apartment for a year, and then renewed our lease for a second year, except we transferred to a larger apartment (Same company and complex, just a bigger apartment). Well now in the new apartment we live underneath someone so loud they shake things in ours from sun up to sun down. Its so excessive that they wake up my toddler and my partner and I from a dead sleep, early in the morning. BUT the REAL problem here is that the person who lives up there is someone that works in the office. So we all know how a complaint will go and how much will be done about it. Since renewing our lease they also no longer care about getting anything that needs to be done for us. Is there anyway we can get out of our ease without paying up the ****? Or can i make a noise complaint to the city police department? Considering i have a toddler id normally be understanding of a little noise, but this is just constant, excessive, daily noise that is disrupting our lives. I'm about to have a newborn, I cant also be dealing with them getting woken up constantly from this.

  • Pay off mortgage faster while saving on interest?

    I have a 30-year fixed rate mortgage. In addition to making my monthly mortgage payments, if I pay towards my principal, will I save on interest? If yes, does that mean once the principal amount has been paid off, there is no more interest?

    is none of their possessions in the rental, they have given written email indication that they are no longer there, and they have even turned off the utilities (which were in their name), but they refuse to return the key, nor will they state to landlord in writing that they agree that they accept that their lease is broken voluntarily on both sides, which is fine by the landlord. So what paperwork exactly can the landlord make the place, officially legal to rent to others and change the locks?
