QUESTIONS

  • I have let my mother live in my residence that I owed with my Father, her ex-husband. He has since past. She is always late on the rent and does not take care of the yard, and smokes in the house. I don't have a lease agreement and I want her out of the house. I am cleaning up his estate and acquiring a loan to fix up the place. How can I legally do this to get her out of the house since I have no signed lease agreement. She is either late or short on the rent at least 3 times in the last year.
  • I am renting a home and we are responsible or pest control but we have found 5 scropins in 3 weeks I took pictures and sent them to our landlord are they responsible to do anything? I am from Wisconsin and have no clue about this problem they claim they have never had this issue. I also have young children whom live with me.
  • I was incarcerated in july of this year and was released just recently, during that time my wife and 2 children had moved to kansas I am most likely to file for divorce and will be seeking joint custody. I am planning on having the kids for their summer break and winter breaks.Since she is out of state what is the procedure for this to occur and what must I file,also will she have to come back to Arizona for the proceedings or can she remain in Kansas?
  • My recently filed a bar complaint against his public defender because he will not answer his calls, visit him in jail, read his police report, obtain any evidence, listen to his side of the story, speak respectfully to him etc. He is so worried that he is not going to get a fair trial because he doesn't have adequate representation.I can not help him, he needs somebody who will listen to him before trying to force him into accepting a plea. What can he do? He is in 4th ave Jail and has been for 6 months. He is claiming self defense on assault charges.
  • My minor granddaughter's father died in a car wreck in January, she was awarded the life insurance and workman's comp because it occurred on the job. Her parents were never married but my daughter retained a lawyer immediately following the accident. We are trying to move the conservatoire which is in the firms account in South Dakota to Arizona but we need an attorney here and a financial adviser group or someone that the funds will be maintained by. We don't know where to start or how and the attorney in South Dakota charges for every correspondence and confuses us. We need to talk to someon
  • I have lived as a tenant for the past 3 years and every year a major appliance breaks, first it was the microwave, then the stove/oven, and now the refrigerator. Each repair takes over 2 months. My refrigerator broke on 7/23 and it is still not fixed! Can I pro-rate my rent for the days without a working refrigerator? Our food has gone bad and it is still not repaired! So frustrated!
  • A windstorm took out several sections of the roof and about 50 feet of the brick wall that surrounds the backyard of the house I'm renting. How long dose the landlord have to fix everything? If it rains I'm worried that there will be damage to my property in the house and with the fence down that my pets are going to get out or attacked by wild animals.
  • Does my landlord have the right to evict me for holding back rent for maintenance issues?
  • My boyfriend and I live in the same house as his father and a roommate, his father is always getting upset over nothing and instead of talking civilly with us, he yells and picks a fight, my boyfriend has anxiety as well as some other medical issues, and cannot deal with this, and it normally leads to loud verbal arguments. My question is are we able to get a no contact order on his father and roommate while we are living in the same house?
  • We moved out 12 days before end of lease and had inspection we were present for and she said it looked great and posted a new rent sign. Just got our deposit back and the charged us $260 for cleaning which we had done and $530 for repairs they had done such as changing bulbs and cleaning the outside of the grill. Is this legal. Shouldn't we have been notified so we could have seen these things and possibly addressed them ourselves. We still had time left in the lease and they had traffic going through for showings. We left the house perfect.
