QUESTIONS

  • I've been renting from the same landlord for three years and suddenly he foreclosed. Is it possible for his name not to show anywhere on the foreclosure papers?
  • My adult son, with whom I lived, used my credit/debit card for items which I did verbally give consent for while I was in an inpatient rehab facility for 6 months. However, he also used it for numerous things I did not give consent or have knowledge of which have totalled more than $20,000. How do I make him repay me? I am totally broke now
  • When living in an apartment/ student living apartment complex in college, is the landlord allowed to only allow one person per room? What if someone is married and wants to live there? Or any significant other for that matter
  • Am I required to mail my rent each month out of state if my landlord lives out of town? If no additional guest policy is referenced in my rental agreement do I have to get permission for every overnight guest? My parents watched our child for a weekend while we were out of town. It seems unreasonable to require permission in this case.
  • I currently own a home which I live in and have a tenant. There is no signed lease agreement, just a verbal month to month. He has not paid his rent and continues to give me the run around and has not been at the house since the 1st which is when rent is due. I have continually contacted him via text message and told him if he does not pay he leaves. He has promised everyday to pay and has not even come home. Last night he promised via text to pack his stuff and leave if I did not have the money by the end of the day yesterday. Can I just change the locks and pack his stuff?
  • I have an almost 6-year-old son; never married; son's father is on his birth certificate and I receive child support, but no written custody order or anything else. (Does that mean paternity has been established, but I by default have legal custody?) Son's father moved out of state a few years ago; we maintain regular contact and do visits when we're able. I would like to move out of state and potentially out of the country for my career.
  • I am renting to own my house, I have lived here for 20 years. I have a problem with my air conditioning unit and other problems with the house. Is it the Landlord's duty to fix the problems or is it mine. I do not own the property yet.
  • I received a summons in my mailbox to appear in court for Disorderly Conduct but I was never issued a citation or anything...is this legal?
  • there is no due date on my lease agreement, can the landlord evict me if i dont pay rent or not pay rent that month?
  • I quit my job in May to seek a higher position. Contacted my former employer July and let them know it was not working out and would like to come back. Was told they would call me in october when the position became available again. Found out they offered the position to a current employee, but, never contaced me to offer me my position back as stated they would. What legal recourse do have at this point?
