QUESTIONS

  • Have had many issues with AC ceiling unit leaking all over kitchen floor in my apt since March. Manager does nothing. I delivered a 10-day form from gov website statute 33-1324 10 days ago. Is there anything more to it then just moving out? What if they try to say I broke lease and report to credit?
  • If a trailer is in your name in a mobile home park and some one else signed the rental agreement then they laeve the trailer with aa balance owed because the trailer is in your name are you responsible even if you signed nothing with the traiker park
  • What are Conciliation Services?
  • My home was sold at a foreclosure auction on 11/22/16. I have never been served a 3 day notice by the new owners just a Summons and Complaint. They want me out of the property and want to charge me an outstanding amount of money and I cannot afford to pay it. They are trying to get a default and judgment against me and I am living in the house with my 8 year old granddaughter. I work 4 days a week and need time to secure another place for us to live. These people are very unreasonable and want me out. I have lived there for 23 years and am having alot of anxiety over this. HELP
  • We have been renting a condo for 5.5 years and now are moving out. We have heard that no one gets their deposits back. Our biggest concern is the carpet, since it's degraded since we've been here. Is "normal wear and tear" at all a consideration? Is there an algorithm or guide on what they should do. We have an $1100 deposit and can't afford to lose it.
  • What is the requirement of an apartment complex when bed bugs have been discovered? Are they required to cover relocation while the apartment is being treated if it is over a certain period of time?
  • My lease is expiring on May 23, 2020. I signed a notice to vacate, but my roommate refuses to sign. My landlord has initiated a month to month lease and is telling me that I am responsible for the rent until both of us sign the order. I cannot control what my roommate does. Am I legally bound to this person? Can they force me into a month to month lease, and make me stay when I want to move?
  • My divorce decree from over 40 years ago specifies my former wife may continue to reside in our former residence. Both our names are on deed to the property. How can I find out if I have any liability related to this property since my name is still on it. And if I do, how do I protect myself?
  • I am pregnant and not in a relationship with the father. He wanted me to get an abortion and I refused. He has provided no assistance or support and now that I am about to deliver he says he has a change of heart and is making unreasonable demands. What are my rights and how can I protect my child?
  • When I got my divorce I did not indicate that I would be taking back my maiden name. Shortly after, I just started using it. Thirty-two years later I am experiencing a problem with Social Security. I will be 62 next year and need to legally change my name so I will be able to collect my monthly Social Security. I was divorced in California but now reside in Arizona. My question is, will I need a Certified or Exemplified copy of my Divorce Decree? Or no copy at all?
