QUESTIONS

  • Hello I have a two twelve year olds and I want to change their last name to my last name because they have their fathers last name and he no longer lives with us so I want to change their last name. How much would it cost to change their last name and how do I change it..?
  • I was told I had to pay a "holding deposit" of $600 & sign a lease for a property that I needed to rent but was unable to do a walk thru in because the existing tenants were still occupying the property. I was told I could cancel at any time prior to my move in date 8/5/13; I cancelled on 7/20/13 & am being told I will not get any of my deposit back. What can I do?
  • Bounced a check to bank not knowing it would bounce at the time. When I did find out it bounced I did not pay right away. Amount $425. I cant pay now because it has gone to court system. At the time I wrote check I did not know it would bounce. Check was from good account. I just did poor bookkeeping. I read law and it says only a crime if I knew it would bounce. I have a plea on the table which will put a misdemeanor on my record. Do I have a defense since I did not know it would bounce?
  • I rented a house. Put down deposit and first month rent. Owner was still workig on house when I moved in and used my utilities to do roof and stucco house. Never got gas turned on because he did not get a permit and was fined. Only had electric in one bedroom. Had no cooling and no hot water. Then I got a 10 notice to get out and I had only been in house for 15 days. I requested my deposit back and some of the eletric paid on a 200 dollar bill. I signed with a leasing company and now they say I have to contact the owner but wont give my any contact information. What can I do?

  • If there is a broken sprinkler valve, are we, the tenant, responsible for fixing this or the landlord? I have requested the landlord to fix it but they are saying it is our responsibility. It was given to us in working condition but it has broken. We have lived here for almost 2 years now. Thank you!
  • My landlord is evicting me because she says my son is valdalizing property in our complex. I believe this to be untrue and wish to dispute the eviction. How can I go about that? Also, does the landlord have to take me to court to seek eviction, if so I may then be able to state my case before a judge. Is this true? I have a witness to the charge of vandalism. Debra
  • I rented a house from my brother and sister in-law a few years ago, without a written rental agreement. Over the course of the rental period I mentioned to my brother to purchase a home waranty for the three properties that they own, including the one that I was in. At the time of rental, they were a happily married couple and since that time, they have separated. I am moving out of their home and purchasing my own home. Now my sister in law wants me to pay the cost of replacing a shower due to water damage in the walls. Am I liable?
