    I moved out and I sold the washing machine and dryer that I bought to the next tenant. Before the next tenant confirmed that she would buy them, I already told the landlord that I have plan to sell them to the next tenant, otherwise I would sell them to others when we discuss about the moving with real estate broker. one week after my family moved out, the next tenant moved in and found that there is no washing machine and called me. I asked landlord and he said that he hired cleaning company to clean the house and he did not know that there were washing machine and dryer. However, the tenant said that the landlord told that he thought that they are just garbage and paid the cleaning company to remove them for 150 bucks. The next tenant blames me and wants me to pay money back. I don t know what to do... My dad went to the house and found that there was dryer s air valve from the landlord s garage.

  • Who's problem is this: My landlord's or UPS's?

    I recently moved into an apartment in a big city. It's a fairly small complex, with a locked front door.

    I recently moved into an apartment in a big city. It's a fairly small complex, with a locked front door. While regular weekday mail has no trouble arriving, ordering anything online and getting it delivered is a pain. Apparently neither UPS nor FedEx have keys to the building, so on any given day there are always a huge number of "Missed you! We'll try again tomorrow" or "sorry we couldn't access the building" notices from failed deliveries stuck on the front door of the building. None of these carriers can access the building to do their job, and when I called my landlord some numbskull on the end just parroted "it's our security policy" back at me. This is an inconvenience for everyone in the building. Everyone ends up have to go across the city to random pickup facilities just to get packages that could've easily been delivered to their mailboxes. Sometimes even when I'm physically IN my apartment, they won't bother ringing the bell and will just leave a "Missed you!" notice. I'm not sure if there is a key and they just can't be bothered to find it or if this is all on the landlord. Is this a regular problem in city apartment complexes?

  • I moved into an apartment last June with a one-year lease. A neighbor informed me the prior tenant was a suicide. I have heard strange noise?

    Best answer: You are not able to breach your lease agreement based on the fact that your wife think the house is haunted. If you breach your lease on these ground, there is normally a penalty for breaching the lease. Your wife had no problems prior to being informed of the death of a person in the rental unit.

    Best answer: You are not able to breach your lease agreement based on the fact that your wife think the house is haunted.

    If you breach your lease on these ground, there is normally a penalty for breaching the lease.

    Your wife had no problems prior to being informed of the death of a person in the rental unit. Now all of a sudden a ghost has appeared. If there were ghost in the rental unit he would have appeared without your wife knowing a person had died in the rental unit.

    You will h ave to come up with a better excuse than, now your wife has been informed there was a death in your rental unit she is now seeing a ghost.

    There might be a requirement to be notified that a death has occurred in a rental property, as there is in the purchase of a house.This requirement only exist if there is a murder in the house. A natural death is not a requirement to notify any potential tenant.

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

    I've been renting a room for 3 months in an apartment building. By the way the landlord is Chinese and able to speak some English. I signed a written 12 months lease but due to circumstances I had to move out early. The landlord also pointed out that she'd return my security deposit unless I find her a new tenant to cover the monthly rent Otherwise I will get one month penalty rent for breaking the lease. Ok, I agree then she gave me all the info and requirements for the search to be more specific she wanted a Chinese female. I posted an ad on craigslist and received several calls but none of them fell into the specific category. Now, I'm thinking if i'm not able to find a tenant on time then i can forget the security deposit since I'll get penalized. So it is legal or discrimination of what the landlord is doing?

He probably used the money the landlord provided to him to get himself a new fridge and gave us his beaten down one. At the end the beaten down one breaks in a week. Should I notify the landlord instead of the management? Since it will take them a year to figure out a solution or find ways to scam more money?

Ive lived in an apartment for a little over a year (it s a house turned into two apartments, the basement is on my half) and about a month prior I sent out a maintenance request for a leaking pipe. They fixed it and now my account says I have to pay 180 something for a broken meter, but I ve never touched any pipes or anything I just use the basement for laundry; I don t even pay the water bill, the landlord does, so how can I be charged for something I didn t break? Couldn t it be considered normal wear and tear?

    So, my fiancé and i unfortunately have an eviction in our records. Our roommate at the time flaked, and we had already covered her a*s before, and were broke from it. So we had to move out immediately, and I’ll admit, we didn’t handle it as well as we probably should have. We didn’t say much to our old landlords. (To be fair, they were assholes. This was an apt complex in the Deep South where Hell is currently residing. There was a day where they randomly cut off our electricity ALL DAY to do some touch up work, which could have been held off.) And i know that that will stay on our records for around 7 years. Well, my fiancé is getting a promotion at work, and is being offered to locate to a new location. With this promotion and relocation, they are offering to pay for his rent for a year. Well, things aren’t really moving right now, and we likely won’t be moving for another 3 months, so I’m impatient and am wondering how this will work? Will we still need to search for a place to move that won’t require a rental history check? Or will they most likely just forget that since we would have proof that we have the money for the rent? We’ll be moving to Aurora Colorado, if that makes any difference..

    Why do buy to let investors do interest only mortgages when they will not own the house at the end of the term? What happens to the house once they have paid the interest off and do not have money to buy the house.

  • Four years ago, my man friend moved into my house, with everything that had been in his much larger home, which had been foreclosed on.?

    Best answer: but he resents having to do this. A lot of my belongings are going, too

    Have you sat down and gone over finances with him? He should be grateful to have a place where he gets to live rent free. He's lost one house because of poor money management, don't let him do this to you also.

  • Can a landlord keep a security deposit for drip trays?

    Best answer: I would say no. Fair wear and tear is NOT deductible from your security deposit - only damages and maybe cleaning costs if you leave the place in a mess. Fair wear and tear is a small fee that's buried in the monthly rent you pay.

    Best answer: Questions concerning noise in apartments are very common here.

    Noise is subjective. Some noise bothers certain people while others pay it no mind.

    The best thing to do is ask her, "This is my first apartment and I am concerned that my noise might be bothering you. Please let me know of my television or my music is too loud."

    I once had a housemate who moved out of a house because a ceiling fan below his room was making annoying noise. But when another housemate was playing loud thumping music, he said he didn't mind.

    There are certain laws concerning noise but these laws vary as does their actual enforcement: very much so.

    As long as your neighbor doesn't mind, go right ahead. Be aware that if you make a lot of noise, you are more or less giving consent to others to do the same. It might help create the wrong type of environment even for yourself.

    We were to move in on July 1st. When we arrived, he was not moved out and the house was not clean. He left a boat taking up half of the garage behind and miscellaneous other things in the backyard. It was written in the lease that he needed to have his boat removed by the 14th at 9am. He was 3 hours late coming to get it. We were very irritated by that. He always has his 3 kids with him. He spent 2 weekends 10-4 replacing the deck with his kids. Then he had the house painted. Hired the most unprofessional painters. They cut a cable on the side of the house which was the internet cable. He fixed it that day. We were mad---he wasn't. He was mad at us for being mad. I left a Yelp review. He ordered me to remove it. I will not. The last day of the painters (8/23) was the final day the landlord was STILL moving his stuff out of the backyard. Came home to the landlord and his relative standing on the lawn looking at the house and his children going in and out of the side yard moving stuff to the neighbors yard. I fully understand his rights and responsibilities as a landlord, but I also understand mine as a paying tenant. I sent him an email requesting a moratorium on non-essential upgrades and repairs at least until the New Year to afford us a break, peace, quiet and privacy for a bit. He basically said no and that he'll be here this weekend. We either want some peace and privacy at least for a little while or we want to move. MUUCH more to the story but won't all fit.
