QUESTIONS

  • I never signed a lease when I moved in to my current home in Scottsdale. I did, however, give a 'last months' rent as a deposit. How much notice is required by law prior to move out, and am I able to recover the balance if I gave a notice on the 10th of the month, had already paid that month's rent in full, and would like to receive the full 'last month's rent deposit back?.
  • We sold a home in Hereford AZ that is in an HOA. At closing we were charged $800 for a disclosure fee. The state statute allows a maximun of $400. We told the HOA this and they refused to let us close unless this was paid. The statute also states that the HOA could be fined up to a $1200 for this. Who can we complain to to get get this investigated?
  • We got a five day eviction notice and we offered to pay the rent in full within the five days and the landlord refused it he said if we didn't have it all that day it would be illegal to take the money
  • I am a property manager. I moved some tenants into a rental house that was a bank-owned ( as is) property. There are scorpions. Can the tenant break the lease because of this? I have sent out exterminators but the scopions live on! Of course we did not see any when looking at the property. Thanks.
  • How do you get the cost of a name change fee waived. I am on disability. Are there certain papers I need to show proof of income and if so which ones. How is a waive determined at the time of filing and who decides?
  • I own a home but was recently let go from the teaching industry. Can I still get food stamps? Will they be considered as a "cash Advance" and have to be paid back when I sell my home?
  • My house foreclosed and was sold at auction on 4/4. On 4/5 I spoke with the new owner and he said he would give me until 4/12 to vacate. Today 4/9 I recieved a Forcible Detainer request form in the mail. DO I need to be out by today?
  • can des deny you before the date given to turn in requested info i filed fair hear on oct 10 and they lost it and didnt file it tillnov 15
  • i owe child suport can they or will take out of my check
  • I am 27. I owe about 18,00 in child support right now. Ive been able to make payments here and there but only $50 at a time. I have an arrears hearing coming up on sept. 3rd. This will be the first hearing. Just in the last few days I was able to gain employment for a department store. Im going to have them garnish my wages or I will be making the appropriate payment. I have honestly just had trouble finding work. Do I need to be concerned about going to jail at this hearing? and can I request a modification of support at this hearing?
