QUESTIONS

  • If house is foreclosed on, what does the new owner need to provide to the old owner and how long does the the old owner have to get out by law?
  • I haven’t written my landlord about my A/C not working, however, I called him. It’s going on 9 days now that it hasn’t been fixed. Is there a way I don’t have to pay full rent?
  • I am 6 months pregnant.The person renting me a room is not allowing me in the house.This happened when she moved my belongings without saying a word and when I asked for her to return them, she kept some and returned others, and I confronted her about them civilly through text because she does not allow me to get in a word.The items are low in value, it was the principle that my property is not safe.She has brought her mom over to the house who is trying to say she is not leaving. What can I do? I have scheduled to have a sheriff come to speak with us.
  • My husband will still be in prison when our child is born, do I need to have him sign the birth certificate from prison or can I just list him as the father as we are married?
  • Last night the maintenance manger at my complex threatened to call the police if I didn't leave. I haven't been officially evicted yet, but he assumed I was since my family removed my belongings. Did he violate my rights under the "self help" measure?
  • I just have one question. A week ago my supervisior came to the job site on Sunday and he was clearly under the influence. He made a comment to me that someone needs to be fired and that this is not Poland where you ride donkeys and play Mickey Mouse games. Yes I am Polish and this just rubbed me the wrong way. I just want to know if I have a chance to file a case against the employer?
  • I was just given a 5 day eviction notice saying, I didn't pay my rent. The notice statement included bed bug extermination, into my rent. I am also being charged a late fee and taxes added onto both extermination and my rent. I paid my rent on the 3rd, on time. Is it legal for them to evict me, by adding the bed bug extermination to my rent? It was in dispute, as was handled properly by myself. Continued bed bug infestation in building & complex. A few residents in my building also had them much worse, when I filed complaint
  • Is it possible to remove a domestic violence charge from my record to stop having a delay when I purchase firearms?
  • I sigend a year long lease in January but may have to move back to Arkansas to care for my elderly parent. What are the ramifications or possibilities of breaking the lease early??
  • we are currently listed as owner's to a mortgage but signed transfer of property- deed papers to an investor of whom we have been making monthly payments to. We have been informed by the mortgage that our payments have not been submitted and that we will soon be in foreclosure. What can we do? This investor promised to assume the mortage as well as the property but really only filed tranfer of property and continues to collect our money, of which has been steady each month.
