    Right now I am dealing with tenants that are breaking up and they both have stated that they want to stay there. They are on a month to month lease and when they moved in it was just his income because she didn t have a job. She is now only working part time and We tried to contact her a few days ago for her income and she never got back to us. Also we found out that if her boyfriend moves out she already started the process of having her dad move in and change his address which she had not confirmed it with us. She locked her boiyfriend out of the apartment and We made him another set of keys since he is still on the lease. Was that wrong to do? We would like to rent to him since he is the main money maker. What steps should I take in evicting her. I don t want it to get messy and breaking legal action.

    My landlord just showed up saying that he needs to inspect my apartment. I have boxes everywhere since i just got new furniture that i need to build by hand. He says that he thinks its a hoarding situation and that i'll get fined or evicted. I cant clear out my old furniture because its too heavy and i cant build the new stuff till the old stuff is gone. My bf wont be able to help for another month since hes away. i dont know what to do. first off, the landlord has been walking by and peering into my windows. thats how he saw all the boxes. im not hoarding stuff, i just dont have the strength to carry anything more than 40 pounds. I also have a physical illness that causes me severe pain all the time. so i seriously cant do these things unless i have help. Im really freaking out about this...

  • Action to take after home inspection- first time buyer.?

    We are looking to buy our first home. During the inspection we found carpenter ants in the basement and plumbing issues after running water in the master bathroom. Water was pouring into first floor and basement in 2 different spots. The inspector didn't get a chance to test the furnace and stove because there was no propane in the tank to test... the propane supplier said they would need at least a year commitment to put propane in the tank and of course we don't want to no commit if we don't end up closing on the house. The listing agent said the bank isn't willing to put propane in either. The realtor isn't offering much but thinks we should ask for a new furnace so there will be no immediate issues in the future. Not to mention a few of the switches didn't turn on lights and the inspector thinks electrical could be an issue and not just bulbs. Do you walk away? What do you negotiate?

    I m selling my house, it s been on the market for almost 3 months now. 15 families have looked at it and only received one offer. My house is listed at 121,500, coming down from 129,900. The offer I got was 113,000 but they were willing to come up to 116,000. The house I REALLY want is $79,000. With me taking the 116,000 offer, I will only be making a few thousand dollars, which will be used to remodel the new house. But I m meeting my goals of getting this house I want, downsizing, and cutting my mortgage by $313. I feel my house is absolutely worth more than 116,000 but I really want to meet my goals, without feeling like I m just giving my house away. I feel conflicted and would like some options on what I should do! I am ready to move, I want this new house, and making a profit is not my main goal, but again, I don t want to feel like I m giving my house away. Thanks!

  • Do I have to give my 60 day notice on EXACTLY the first of the month?

    My lease says "The 60 day notice must be given on the first day of a month. If the notice is given after the first of the month, then the notice will not go into affect until the first of the next month".

    My lease says "The 60 day notice must be given on the first day of a month. If the notice is given after the first of the month, then the notice will not go into affect until the first of the next month". Does this mean I am legally required to give the notice on EXACTLY the first day of the month, or can I give it sooner? Does this statement prohibit me from giving the notice sooner? For example, giving them a notice on 9/20/17 that my move-out date will be 11/30/17. This would be more than 60 days notice.

    I just rented a small house for 1 yr and later found out that there were fleas all over the house. I had flea bites all over my body & owner claimed that it was mosquito bite and it wasn't flea at all. I can't sleep during the night. The landlord said they did pest controls a month ago before I moved in. I went to hospital and got doc.'s note about fleas and medicine. Now, I've already paid security deposit. Because of this reason, will I be able to get the security deposit back when I terminate the contract?

  • I have a new landlord in a building that I have been living in for 4 years This new landlord is demanding the rent be paid by 9am?

    Best answer: It would depend on state/county/municipal laws (and no clue about other countries). No way to give an accurate answer without knowing where. However, most states legally have a grace period (usually 3-5 days or so). Look up your local laws if you don't want to give your location - should be easy to find with... show more
    Best answer: It would depend on state/county/municipal laws (and no clue about other countries). No way to give an accurate answer without knowing where. However, most states legally have a grace period (usually 3-5 days or so). Look up your local laws if you don't want to give your location - should be easy to find with a quick search online. But generally in the US, no - I don't imagine it would be legal in very many jurisdictions to demand rent by 9am on the 1st.

    Edit: it could also depend on your lease. If your lease outlines when rent is due (a specific date, maybe a grace period, etc...) then that's binding - the new landlord can't change that. That said, law trumps any lease agreement - so even if your lease says no grace period, but there's a state/city/whatever law saying there IS a grace period, then you go with the law (not with the lease).

    Best answer: The only person that can answer this question is your landlord. Go talk to them about it.

    But before you do, don't be intimidated by the property management. No one is demanding you to go, just to abide by the rules. Rule #1 be considerate of your neighbors. Rule #2 gain approval for all occupants living in the property. When you signed the lease, that didn't give you the right to move in whom ever you wanted. Three strikes and your out is a rule in baseball, not leasing. No one is demanding you vacate, nor threatening eviction. And the same rules that apply at this apartment also apply at the next one too.
