• Can my landlord charge a $500 penalty per person for moving out earlier even though it is not by choice?

    I live in VA. I've lived in this building for 3 years, in the past 5 months we have had a lot of problems with mice, and we believe the building could fix some issues ( dirty hallways and lots of trash in the garbage area) It come to a point where I do not feel at home in my own home. We don't cook at home, if I know my roommate it's going away for the weekend, I stay over friends'. Neither of us ever want to be home with the mice. We have caught so far over 5 mice. But there are always lots of droppings. At first we tried to work with the building so that this would get solved. But after 4 months of no change we decided we wanted to move out. They are letting us go but they are charging each person a penalty fee of $500. We are 2 weeks away from our "move out" day, we are calling them and emailing them to see if we have to sign anything and they are avoiding us. Can they do this? Do we really have to pay this fee?

  • Can I sue my tenants before they move out?

    My tenants are moving out before the end of their lease. They are moving out at the end of May. Can I sue them now for the 3 months remaining on their lease (June, July, and August)?

  • Purchasing a condo?

    Best answer: In most states you are considered an adult at 19 years of age.

    Best answer: In most states you are considered an adult at 19 years of age.

    Even though you are 19 years of age and is legally able to purchase a property, at this age, you would not be financially qualified to purchase a property as you would not be employed for the 2 year requirement.

    You would n t be able to produce the necessary2 years of income taxes, 2 years of W-2 forms and other required financial documents required to be approved for a mortgage loan.

    At 19 years of age most are just graduating from high school a year earlier.

    Your parents might purchase the condo in their name or act as co-borrowers for you to purchase the condo.

    In doing this, you are dependent on you parents for financial help and not able to be financial independent,

    You would want to beware of purchasing a condo. There are expenses you would be required to pay such as monthly Home Owner's Association (HOA).

    You could also be assessed a fee by the home owner's association for additions deemed necessary by the homeowner's association, that you might not agree with.

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

  • Might sound like a stupid question but I need help with locks?

    I'm soon moving into a student house (as I am going into third year of university) and the estate agent has recently contacted us to say that they will no longer put locks on the outside of our bedroom doors, giving the reason of 'if you get burgaled, we'd rather them steal your stuff then cause damage to our doors by kicking them in if they have locks on them,' stupid right? I also don't know any of the people I'm moving in with so I don't exactly want to leave my stuff in an unlocked room. Anyway, I don't even know if something like this exists but is there anything that I can install on my door to stop people from getting in when I'm not there? Like a lock that leaves no marks or anything as I would get charged for damage if I had to screw things in. I don't think anything exists but I might as well ask the world. Thanks in advance.

  • Would I be breaking my lease if I moved?

    I signed a lease in 2015 with my parents. (So were roommates) and we've lived together since. We have a shitty relationship and I really want to move out. Our lease was for 12 months and I never signed another one. Would I be in trouble with our slumlord if I left?

  • I found 1.4 million in cash wash up on shore, how can I buy a house if I have no credit?

    Best answer: You don't need credit if you have the cash. But do not spend it all on a home because an expensive home also has ongoing expense for upkeep, property taxes, and utilities.

    However, web search "suspicious activity report". If you pay with a briefcase or suitcase full of cash, there will be questions.

    The house is 15 minutes just outside of Atlanta, Georgia. City trash pickup has always been a regular thing there and they charge a sanitation fee regularly for the pickup by the curb. My mother has owned her home for about 38 years now. Over time, the city has gotten more and more sorry about not picking up the trash. They used to pick up twice per week. Then they went down to once per week - every Thursday. They brought out one big green rolling can free of charge from the city. They expect the garbage of a household, over 7 days' time, to fit in that one green can. You can barely fit 4 30 gallon trash bags in it and close the lid down if you really try to push them down into it. That's for 7 days. They state to "put the extra trash bags on the ground near the can and they'll get it". Every neighborhood that I know of has dogs that will rip it out all over the yard. We see it happen to neighbors all of the time. There are other personal cans not provided by the city. This is what they used to pick up by hand and empty into the truck. Now the garbage truck has an attachment that picks up the green city provided can only. The regular cans aren't overly heavy. The small black can can fit 2-3 30 gallon bags in it max, so we're talking 20 pounds or less. They don't want to pick that can up anymore. A call to the supervisor resulted in him saying that about a year to a year and a half ago, they "stopped picking up trashy out of the regular personal cans".

    I currently have a 2 bedroom apt on the second floor and pay 1890. We have 3 kids and everything is fine but we would like to rent a town house. We have the opportunity to rent a 2 bed 2 bath town home with direct access garage and washers and dryers in the unit for 2500. Should i do it? The pro to moving is that we wouldnt have to worry about parking, nor washing clothes At whatever time we want . Our current apt Complex has bad parking and walking with my 3 toddlers is getting rough. It just hurts to pay and additional 6 hundred bucks. A part of me says to just save for a house. But i want to do whats best for my kids and wife. What would you guys do?
