QUESTIONS

  • My husband died Dec 14,2015. He suffered from dementia and signed a lease on an apartment. November 5, 2015. We never received a signed completed lease agreement to this date, I have sent numerous requested for return or written conformation of deposit status. First they said I wasn't on the lease, I provided my marriage certificate and acknowledged Arizona was a community property state.

  • My home was foreclosed (sold at auction) in 2009. I had two loans on the home, my primary residence: a Primary and a Home Equity Line of Credit. I have become aware that the HELOC bank, *****, has not written off my loan yet; this is preventing me from purchasing another home, which I have under contract. Q: Should a HELOC be considered "settled" with a foreclosure or can ***** the bank still pursue me for the unpaid loan amount (+$100K)? I am waiting to hear from *****, but they are extremely slow to respond and this could cause me to lose a potential new home! :-(

  • My townhouse has water damage from a pipe leak. Landlord sent maintenance guy to fix pipe. 6 days later sent a mold specialist to check for moisture but not mold.

How can I legally make sure that they handle this health and safety issue properly because they are clearly cutting corners and not using certified specialists.
