QUESTIONS

  • I am writng to gain a better understanding of the community property law in Arizona. What does this law mean? My parents have property in Yuma and due to financial difficulty my sister & I are talking about purchasing the property from the to have more income at thier disposal. If we purchase this land together what does the community property law mean to us?
  • My father (73) was diagnosed with lung cancer few months ago. I do not know how much time he has left. He owns a house in Mesa, and my sister lives with him. The house is under his name and he has a will that divides evrything he owns 50-50 between my sister and me. Now, when he passes away, can my sister still be in the house and assume mortgage payment? If my sister and I want to sell the house after my father's departure, can we do that? If so, how does that work?
  • Can lesbian adopt
  • You state a 10 day notice is required. Is that 10 days before rent is due? Does it mean 10 days before your final 30 day period?
  • Des found my ex to be 12,000 dollars in arrears, without my requesting anything. My ex is fighting it and Im being brought into court. Des is not providing any representation for their findings leaving me out and being responsible for attorney fees. Des was correct in its findings but i cant get documentation on any prior preceedings?
  • If we own a house together, and i wanted to keep the house after thedivorce, is it possiable? I work from my home and i have paid the house payments for the past 6 years.
  • Im requesting police report from yuma county sheriffs in arizona and said no I can't get copy there is ongoing investigation and I have to get ahold of state attorney. why?
  • My landlord entered us into a lease with the knowledge that the home was INFESTED with termites. The neighbor pointed them out and told us he informed her before our occupancy. We immediately verbally requested she send a professional not only to inspect the safety of the homes structure, but to treat the problem. She ignored our request. We then turned in a written request and she immediately sent someone unannounced to spray for them. We still want an inspection. The damn things are dropping through our ceiling and our porch literally is falling apart. What can we do now?
  • I live in apartments and the management is trying to back charge us an increased city tax rate of 2.9% for the past month and going forward. I know the rate is subject to change, but don't they have to give us a 30 day written notice of the change and rent increase? The residential rate here in Glendale is 2.2%, are they legally even able to enforce the higher rate without a tax increase? What kind of actions can I and other residents take?
  • My landlord is trying to evict us for non-payment of rent. I called her and offered to pay her rent through a charity. She refused it and said that she does not accept rent from charities.  Can I use this as a defense?
