QUESTIONS

  • I was accused of shoplifting I did not do due to a misunderstanding . I was not arrested and the case was completely dismissed by the court. How do I remove this from public record?
  • I sent a maintenance request to my property management to fix my broken AC on Sunday. It's now Thurs. They are waiting for the owner to respond to getting a brand new AC unit. Am I entitled to have my rent pro-rated for the time it was broke after advising them as a tenant? What amount of time do they have to fix the problem before I can legally act?
  • I got hurt in the job, ir required hospital stay and surgeries. My employer has been great they started my sick pay right away. A few weeks later workers comp sent me checks. Payroll was informed. How ever I still got pay from sick pay. I figured this was just part of the benefit of having sick pay. Ir wasn't a secret. But now they ate up set about double pay. Can they make us pay that back or lose my job over this?

  • I moved in the 4th of July weekend, signing a 1 year lease, which will convert to month-to-month after the 1st year. On 12/31/15 I received a notice that they were raising my "tax" amount effective 2/1/16 - is this legal? And once the lease becomes month-to-month and you agree to a rental amount increase (which is sure to come), do you legally have to sign the agreement which is the same format as a "1 year" lease? Is it also possible to receive a copy of the "Landlord/Tenant Handbook"?
