QUESTIONS

  • I received five day notice for non-payment of rent. I am in process of seeking emergency assistance. Can I be evicted if I am only able to pay the rent but not late fees?
  • I am trying to get guardianship and conservatoship for my parents. The county stepped in when they discovered the value of their assets. Now i have no legal rights or access to my parents. i cannot afford an attorney and the hearing is next week. Is there any help available?
  • I was considering a move from Texas to Show Low AZ. I put a $1000 deposit and paid $445 lot fee. When I returned home in TX. I realized that downsizing from a 2300sqft home to a 900sqft trailer was not doable for me at this time. After 2 days from signing the agreement, I gave my formal written notice that I had changed my mind. Now the owner will not refund my money. What can I do. $1400 dollars is quite an amount to keep for just because. I was told they could have shown the trailer 2 times during that time, however the unit was not even ready for someone to move in.
  • When a person passes away are the outstanging debts,like credit cards passed on to their adult children?
  • The house is currently in foreclosure.It is being sold at an auction in January.Will they give me a notice telling me I have to get out? Or can they by law,put my stuff on the curb?
  • We discovered we had a rat in our apartment, that same day we reported it to the office and they scheduled for an exterminator to set traps two days later. The next day we started seeing ticks around the apartment, we have one dog and started him on Nexguard tick preventative right away. The apartments are stating that they do not cover for tick exterminator because the ticks couldn't have traveled via the rat. Who is responsible for tick extermination?
  • My boyfriend and I have been together since mid 2005. He recently purchased a home in only his name. We are planning on getting married in april of next year. After marriage do I automatically become co- ownr? If we do not get married how long will it take for me to be considered co- owner without him actually havng to add my name to the title?
  • My husband and I are separated (not legally yet) and I was wondering if going through a separation or divorce gives you the right to break your lease from an apartment. Is this true?
  • My question is does Arizona limit or prohibit the elimination of implied warranties in used automobile sales by dealers? Put another way, does "as is -no warranty" eliminate all implied warranties?
  • My husband is a drug addict who has been evading service as of 2014/2015. Just when I was almost done with proceedings, he moved to a different state. I didn't have the money to start over and have since become unemployed. I don't want to end up responsible for his bills once my bankruptcy is through. How can I get help? My area states they don't handle divorces so I don't know where to turn.
