QUESTIONS

  • How do I go about removing people who live in my house who are not on the lease. I understand they have squatters rights. How would I go about legally removing them from my home? I am not the landlord I am the tenant, but my name is on the lease and all the bills. I do not want them in my home any more they have been here illegally for about 3 months. They are not on the lease, how can I legally remove them without losing the house myself?
  • I have been living with this man for the last month and now we are broke up and he is withholding my mail could i get arrested for entering the home through the window? because he won't let me in .and he will not give me my mail.
  • I have serious doubts that the house I am renting is up to code. Whom can I contact to evaluate the house for safety and to verify that it meets all applicable standards the landlord is required to meet?
  • How can I kick my ex girlfriend out of the home I own? broke up with my ex about 2 yrs ago. She didn't have anywhere else to go so I let her stay. She pays 30% rent and the water bill. I have repeatedly asked her to move out for months. I moved her stuff to the garage when she refused. I gave her an eviction notice for 30 days. She said that I can't legally evict her since she has established residency at my home and gets mail. I am being held hostage in my own home. I want to move on with my life and my new relationship.
  • How much can a mobile home park charge for a pet deposit when I own the mobile home?
  • My apartment is partially furnished, a bed. The bed is used and very uncomfortable. The mattress is old. What can I do to get a new bed? Is it legal for my landlord to keep used mattresses in his units? Also, he says that if I buy a new mattress, I have to leave it there when I move out. The lease stipulates that I cannot remove or modify the existing furniture. So can he do this ?
