  • I'm now in a nursing home and getting AHCCCS. I know my land has a lien because of this. I can't afford to pay for my property taxes. I also have some unpaid medical bills. My daughter only has power of attorney for legal matters. Can she file for bankruptcy for me? What are my options when I can't pay?

I am now clean 85 days and realized how bad I have been taken advance of .

  • i currently live in a mobile home with my 3 children. I had a water leak in my kitchen that got repaired for outside, now the inside of my home smells like mold, and my bathroom floor is caving in. I have sent numerous of work orders and nothing has been completed. Do I have the right to withhold rent until damages are fixed?
  • I am helping my daughter, who lives out of state and has guardianship of her father, move him to an assisted living facility. He has diagnosed dementia and severe major depressive disorder. He now lives independently in an apartment. His primary care doctor feels it is no longer safe for him to live alone. Under Arizona law, is there a way she can terminate his lease early without paying all the penalties and the stipulated two months rent since his move is for health reasons?
  • How long can a manager turn off the water for repairs in a mobile home community?
  • Our building is pretty old and the plumbing here is always giving everyone problems. Usually the owner fixes it and that's that. Well this time, the toilet is plugged up and it's the 3rd time. It wasn't fixed right the first time or the second time. Because I have been having problems with it ever since. Including right after they supposedly fixed it the first time. So this time (3rd time) the landlord (not the owner) says I have to pay her husband to fix it. I have a 14 yo son n a 17 yo daughter as well as myself who is disabled n our room mate who islike 63 yo. Do I have to pay?
  • Our divorce was granted 09/26/06. As part of the agreement, I was supposed to pay my husband $35,000 to buy him out of a rental house we co-own with my parents. He refuses to take the money and I am at a loss as to what to do. He now says he wants the house, but has done nothing to procure financing to buy out me and my parents. Do I go to court and petition them to enforce the court order or do I sue him for non-compliance? The property agreement was "not-merged" and I have been advised to sue. How do I do that?
