QUESTIONS

  • I have sent two emails to my landlord and a letter with rent asking for a leak to be repaired. I have not received a call or email back to schedule the repair. I know the letter was received because rent was cashed. What options do I have to get the leak repaired?
  • I live in a condo complex. One of the other owners has been storing property in a storage bin which is not her own. She appropriated it when it went into foreclosure. The current owner wants that storage bin. What can we do? The lock is still on and the woman (a lawyer, by the way) refuses to remove it.
  • I am pregnant with an ex-lover's child and he wishes no part in the childs life. I know he will not sign the birth certificate when the baby is born. Is there a way I can get a court order for him to put the child on his health insurance? I dont want child support money or anything like that but wish the child to have both mine and his health insurance coverage. Is this possible?
  • The landlord recently began a no smoking policy for apartments and their patios. There is a sign posted now. Would this also include our car ports which are not attached to living quarters?
  • I have more than $10k outstanding debt (student, loan, credit card, hospital bills, etc.) that I am unable to pay on my income(11,760) gross annually. What would be my best move to eliminate the debt, and restore credit.
  • can SS funds be garnished
  • I owe a credit union in Michigan $25,000 for Visa and $175,000 for second mortgage. They wrote the balances off 12/30/2010. I continued to make payments on the mortgage thru May-2012. I have not received any communications from the credit union since then. In June 2013 I received a letter from a collection agency that states that I owe $200,000 on the 2nd mortgage and $32,000 on the visa. What are my rights? What am I obligated to pay? Does Arizona have a law that creditors are not allowed to solicit more than what they paid for a debt? Your help would be greatly appreciated. SB
  • In July I went to SALA to see about filing bankruptcy. I am behind on everything due to unemployment and medical bills for my son. The lawyer I saw said not to at this point because I make too little to garnish,and sent me home with some pamphlets. Now my HOA has sued and won and is putting a lein on my house.I will never be able to make the payment they are asking for. My house is free and clear. Can the HOA still take my home and leave my kids and I homeless? Or are they bound by the homestead law? Thank you.

  • I had to leave a rental property because of an order of protection. The problem is that I had already paid in full the hole lease in advance. The law states that he is supposed to refund my money in case of a domestic violence issue. I have not received any money from him or the return of my security deposit either and he is refusing to pay me. What do I do to get my money he owes me back?
