QUESTIONS

  • My landlord gave me a noise complaint and unauthorized tenant notice on April 11, 2018 . I asked landlord, who is the unauthorized occupant. She said your son. I assured her that , my son do not live here, buy he is my babysitter while I'm at work. Then on May 4, I went into pay rent , The landlord received my rent. I asked her how is the noise, she stated it have not gotten any better and you totally disregard the 10 day for having an unauthorized occupant. I told her I told you my son do not live here. The landlord said he is always here and I told her , yes, because I'm always at work.
  • my bf is leaving for 9 months for work. I am legally blind and on an extremely low SSI. I am considering traveling with and coming back in the winter. Will my AHCCCS still cover me in Utah for the 8/9 month stay?
  • I live in an apartment where utilities are included. My landlord shut off the heat last week is this legal?
  • I haven't received my child support bank deposit since 2 weeks. My ex-husband said he paid. How can I resolve this matter?
  • I asked a friend to leave and gave them their portion of the rent back, they have been gone for over a week and still haven't came back for their stuff what should I do? The person does not seem to be making the attempt to get the stuff, she was not technically living here.
  • i purchased a vehicle i signed a contract with 21% intrest on a car the bank lowered the interest rate to 18.5 but never drew up a new contract is this a legal contract or not
  • Per my lease agreement I sent notice to my landlord that I wanted to renew the lease a month prior to lease ending via email 6/28/19, the same day he sent me notice of rent increase which was received on 6/29/19. He recently replied that we are on a month to month, our lease does not end until July 31st at 5pm. He took over two weeks to respond to email, I am unable to give him 30days notice as he took too long to respond, I recently emailed back accepting he rental amount if a lease is written. What right do I have? Last year when he raised the rent he back dated the 30 day notice.
  • Over the weekend my apartment flooded but not just water. Feces flooded both showers and kitchen into the entries of the bedrooms, actual pieces of feces are seen floating around. Management is only going to get the carpets cleaned. I have never experienced this and seeking advice. I strongly feel the carpet needs to be replaced. Its feces! not just water flood. I have kids as well playing and running around on the floors. I feel disgusted at this point. Please Help!!
  • My landlord turned off the heat to the entire apt complex a week ago, and stated that it can't be turned back on. It is reasonable to presume that without heat, the temperature inside the residing units will be comparable to outside. I tried to submit, in writing, a letter requesting that by purchasing an adequate heater to heat my unit during this time, I may apply the amount spent on the heater, with proof of receipt, to be deducted from my rent for the month of March, 2015. I cited 33-1324 and 33-1364 in the letter. The landlord denied the request. How enforceable is my principle?
  • What are proper procedures for a school to question a young child 9 to 14 about a theft? Is a parent supposed to be notified? Or be there?
