• Can my landlord make me stay and pay rent for another month even though I informed my roommate I was leaving?

    So last year in December, my ex-girlfriend and I signed a year long lease. Unfortunately, things did not work out and a few months ago, we mutually decided not to renew the lease together.

    So last year in December, my ex-girlfriend and I signed a year long lease. Unfortunately, things did not work out and a few months ago, we mutually decided not to renew the lease together. She expressed desire in renewing the lease by herself or asking the landlord to add someone else but obviously, it was none of my concern since I already decided I was not going to be residing there anymore. She eventually settled on a roommate who wouldn’t be able to move in until January (leaving her to pay December’s rent on her own. Assuming that she would handle speaking to the landlord about renewing the lease, I made accommodations to move out by December 5th. Today, she informed me that she contacted the landlord and he has stated that I have to pay December’s rent because “all tenants have to pay last months rent”. But if the lease ends exactly on December 5th.. doesn’t that mean I paid the last months rent in January? Is he penalizing me for not giving him 30 day notice that we both wouldn’t be renewing the lease?

  • I hate my roommate, but we're stuck in a lease together, any chance I can persuade my landlord to let me move out?

    She's often late with her house rent, never once has paid utilities on time (paid utilities to me, I'm the principal tenant. She moved in with me after I was already living here for several months) She tries to push my buttons at every turn, runs the place like it's hers, is extremely rude to me, and... show more
    She's often late with her house rent, never once has paid utilities on time (paid utilities to me, I'm the principal tenant. She moved in with me after I was already living here for several months) She tries to push my buttons at every turn, runs the place like it's hers, is extremely rude to me, and even admitted the only reason she moved in, was so that she could wait till I move out, and then her friend could move in. I've had it with her, and either she goes, or I go, but do you think I could ask my landlord to either help me with getting her out of the lease, and asking her to leave, or getting me out of the lease, so at least I can move out

  • Can the landlord tear down decks on a home that is part of the attraction of our originally renting this place?

    We are renting a home with decks on front and back. The decks are rotting and safety hazard and we had asked them to fix it. We were told they no longer fix decks and decks are no longer allowed on their properties, but they would tear them down. If we rented this and part of the attraction was the decks, and I... show more

If we rented this and part of the attraction was the decks, and I also feel that is part of the cost of renting... can they refuse to repair these decks and just tear them down?

    Best answer: If you purchased it, it all belongs to you. Most people won't come back for stuff anyway. They take what is important to them.

  • Why is my mortgage insurance so high on my quote?

    Best answer: What type of loan is it? How much are you putting down & what is your credit score. MI is written based off of these things. Most people don't pay $100.00... it is totally dependent on these things.. The more you put down, the higher your score etc the less you pay. Your realtor really has no way to know,... show more

    Hi, I m a paralegal and I have to do the legwork on this. I get that I shouldn t rely on yahoo answers for this, but in hoping this can point me in the right direction. About client: Has been living in the same apartment for years. Lease is yearly. Has been paying rent late the last year or so so he doesn t think they would allow him to renew lease this time. Lease is up at the end of Nov (so a little over a week from now). He asked the landlord s manager about a month ago if he d be allowed to renew, she said she did not know and would get back to him. Never did. Now he just emailed the landlord s assistant today asking if he can renew the lease and if not, if he can have an extra 30 days; she emailed him back saying she will get back to him on that. Again, lease is up in a little over a week. I think there is some sort of clause stating they must give him ample amount of time if they choose not to let him renew the lease. They have not. Anyone will legal knowledge on what his rights are? Citations appreciated. Thanks!

  • Should my mum work for longer?

    My mum works Monday Tuesday and Wednesday but my dad works all 5 days of the week. She doesn t want to work for extra days because she has to clean, but this means that we have no money. We can t afford a new boiler, a new dishwasher and because we have no boiler, it means no heating and we can t have hot showers.

    Best answer: Your statement says it all. He is in the process of buying a house.

    You would need to sit down and discuss how you feel about this purchase. Perhaps he is not aware of your feelings. Perhaps he is considering the fact that you would not be contributing financially to the purchase.

    You should notice a lot of perhaps. This is because we have no idea. It is up to you to find out his feelings about the purchase of the house.

    How do you know he plan to not add your name to the title deed. You do not need to be employed to be added to the mortgage loan application or the title deed to the house.

    You have no one else to ask. You have him to ask. You might or might not get the answer you want, however, you need to ask.

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