QUESTIONS

  • I am the petitioner of a protective order and the defendant has not been served yet. Our court date is next week. What is gonna happen? Will they dismiss it or continue it.
  • I am in the process of evicting a roommate. I took it to court, and have to restart the court process because the 5 day eviction notice was not certified mail. She has left all of her things for about three weeks now. At what point am I legally allowed to move her belongings to put another roommate into her old room? And what would I have to do for her property to roll over into my possession, so I can legally remove it from my home or dispose of the items?
  • is my landlord responsible for my medical bills if i fall in the parking lot
  • We signed a new house on july 19th, and before we moved in, we hired a cleaning company trying to clean the entire house. The thing is when the cleaning company was cleaning, they found out a bunch of fleas inside of the house. We asked landlord see if he can refund the rent for the days before the entire house completly cleaned. Should be the landlord responsbility to take care of it before we move in? Can we ask for the refund the rent for the days we can't live inside of the house?

  • My apartment complex has altered the equipment in the shower so that it lowers the water usage and the tenant had no say in this matter. Can they do this when the tenant signed a lease with the expectation of the existing shower?
  • A recent partial flood due to a roof leak caused by pigeon feces and nesting on the roof. Birds were also living in the attic. Sewer roaches also infested the attic drawn to waste and moisture present in the attic. With hazardous exposure and health concerns, is this the responsibility of the owner? They are communicating I should have recognized or smelled the nesting and feces and reported it before the problem developed. I requested they order an air quality test due to my asthmatic children and my concern of something in the air about a year ago. They have no record of it?
  • Do I qualify for FMLA if I am struggling with a child custody in another county and I need to be out of work for an extended time?
  • Lease states landlord may terminate lease for any reason with 45 or 60 days notice? It also states tenant can terminate with 60 days notice but owe penalties and breach of contract. Is that legal in Arizona ?
