QUESTIONS

  • We are being evicted, our landlord served us three papers, each of which stated a different reason for eviction, loudness, smoking, non-payment of rent etc. Do her statements have to be consistent with one another? If so, can I use her inconsistency as a defence in court?
  • I had let a friend stay in my house as a tenant at will without a lease. She has recently become incarcerated. What is the best way to do an eviction? I will continue to keep her things in storage until she gets out of jail and not charge for that. I'm not asking for back rent or anything, just that she moves.
  • My father passed and my sister had a beneficiary deed that made the home hers. I've lived there for 7 years and provided care for my father during that time. She is now trying to evict me and my father's only been gone for two weeks. She's entering the house and removing property and even drilled out the lock to my bedroom door. She's installed cameras to watch the house from outside. What are my rights?
  • Just moved out to AZ, my girlfriend and I have a house with a pool and a walled in back yard. She asked if it is legal to sunbathe without a swimsuit or any clothes on. I know there are public exposure laws, but does it make a difference that is in my own property and with an enclosed yard? Or if a neighbor looks over my wall and sees her and reports it, are we in the wrong?
  • I purchased a mobile home in 55+ almost 2 years ago. I only pay lot rent monthly for lot #46. Today I received an additional email with an additional separate bill of $32 which said "Lot 47 occupied by Unit 46 extra lot fee charge". I was unaware the mh I purchased 2 years ago was on more that 1 lot, nor does any lease agreement or purchase paperwork state anything about my mh sitting on a double lot. This is the first I am hearing of this. Out of the blue they are billing me for a partial additional lot. Can they legally do that after 2 years? Space/Lot #47 is not mentioned anywhere.
  • My daughter's mom filed for child support this summer. Now she is trying to move away without my consent. What can I do to stop this? I don't have much money cause it's going to child support. Please help ASAP!
  • My new apt. has many old water leaks I only discovered when it rained, and a large patch of black mold that's not responding to me spraying mold and mildew cleaner on it growing on the outside exterior of my living room wall in a closet. During the last storm, I had water trickling down the drywall and across the ceiling in my bedroom and one can see it's not a new leak and has been repaired before. Maintenance says they can only cosmetically scrape and paint it. I can't live here even if its remedied because it's extensive and I'm very sensitive to mold already. What do I do?
  • My husband and I are being sued by my husband's mother for visitation of our 1-year-old son. We were not married at the time the petition was filed, but we have since been married. A judgment has yet to be made, however my husband has recently been offered a job opportunity in another state that requires we relocate before our next court date. We are in the process of notifying the court, however we fear his mother will object to the transfer and not allow us to relocate to another state. Does his mother have the right to keep us from relocating?
  • Is there any resource available for a senior over 90 years old. Needs caregiver Shehe has a TIN number no social security number.
  • What happens if a tenant seems to have moved out after the eviction case was already filed in court, and the landlord still wants to collect the back rent owed? The summons & complaint was served by a process server to the tenant.

STORIES
