When I inspected the property there is extensive damage, doors ripped off hinges, holes punched/kicked into walls, feces/blood smeared on walls, something dumped onto the carpet, windows smashed out. Will my home owners insurance cover this under vandalism? Or is this considered “normal wear and tear of tenants use”?

  • My rent is going up and I’ve lived in my apartment 5 years?

    I’ve lived in my apartment 5 years now and I’ve never been late on my rent and I got a notice that rent is going up 15 dollars. I know it’s not much but I also live in a one bedroom and I found out lady next door has a 2 bedroom and pays 30 more dollars than me but now I will be paying 15 dollars less than her. How is this fair? And she’s been there 2 years. If I want a 2 bedroom my landlord said it would be 675 a month but lady pays 525 for 2 bedroom. I current rent is $495 but will be $510 but landlord says normally for a one bedroom it’s 575 a month with a balcony but I don’t even have one.

  • I can’t find an apartment I can afford that accepts pets?

But I don’t know what to do... every house/apartment is either too expensive or they don’t allow pets or they don’t allow pets over 25 pounds. You don’t just give up on your pets. I’m not going to abandon her. She does bark, but she is well behaved and she never has accidents. I just don’t know what to do at this point. Should I call and ask if any of these places will make any exceptions? I don’t want to get her certified as an emotional support animal either.

  • One month to create a lease document?

    So i'm leasing office space to a person for a 10 year lease. He had to contact a lawyer and create an agreement/contract. But it's already taken him 1 entire month? Is this normal?

  • Security fee for Closing late?

    So I ve just been informed that there is a security company that charges a fee to my work place due to tripping sensors if we stay past the closing time to finish work, I am uncertain if that is true or not but that would seem like a very bad business practice. Does anyone know if this is true?

    Hi, i need advice tegarding roommates and contracts. Me, my boyfriend, and 3 of our friends are talking about rent a house together. However, my boyfriend's mom is strongly advising against it, but it seems like our only option before we end up homeless. She doesn't think we should do it because of one of our friends, lets call him "Tyler". "Tyler once lived with my boyfriend's mom and flaked out on her within a few months. She also told us that "Tyler" was telling her he was only planning on staying with us for a few months. We need him locked into this plan for at least a year or else we can't do it. He already pulled out of it once and they came to us again with the idea. So, how do i write up a contract that will lock him in for a year? Would it even hold up in court? How do i make it oficial? And do you think the contract alone will scare him into staying for a year? Please help, i need to figure this out quickly so we can start looking for other options before its too late. Thank you.

  • Can rent be paid in gold and silver?

    Would a landlord accept payment if you had gold and silver pieces (.999 or 1 Troy ounce)? It would be interesting to try and see since it is legal currency

  • What would be the best way to pay off two months rent for an apartment?

    My plan is to get a one Bedroom apartment under mine and my mothers name. I will then stay in the living room and rent out the other room so I will be able to pay it. I just need to pay both months rent. Do you recommend taking out a loan or saving up?

    having overnight guests every weekend and sometimes letting their guests stay in the house until later into the week? I have these two roommates who are sisters who frequently have men over at our house every weekend and sometimes even later into the week. This afternoon, I came home from work and one of their boyfriends was still hanging around in the house. He claimed that he was supposed to leave last night, but something happened and he ended up staying and that my roommate was going to drive him home when she got home from work. However, when she got home, they just went back into her bedroom. Can I get them evicted for having overnight guests so often that stay so long and possibly actually living in the house without the landlord's knowledge?

But I m also thinking of buying my first house. Would it affect the interest rate on loans not in a positive way, if I found a new engineering job around the same pay or bit better then buy a house, or is it better that I stay first, buy a house, then switch job... so loaners can see job stability.

Shouldn't a house be nicer than renting but replacing things make it more expensive overall?

    I have no family or friends and barely have enough money to pay rent, I've never taken out a loan before so my credit isn't ruined but I don't own anything as collateral, I'd just like to have a Christmas where I don't fear being homeless. I'm working through the holidays and that will just about get me through my bills, I don't understand how I work so hard 7 days of the week and cannot make it, money goes to electricity, WiFi, rent, and then something happens like a flood and the insurance rises and I also pay more than I receive to fix it. Any advice on how to make it, just enough so I will not be homeless.
