QUESTIONS

  • If a person is renting in an apartment complex and the landlord does not maintain the pool what are the rights of the tenants. The pool is green and pool care company reports landlord does not want to pay for all the right chemicals. This has been on going for 2 months at least.
  • My neighbors were evicted from their home. Myself and roommates were helping the family by letting them use our personal items not knowing about anything like this, they never disclosed that they might be evicted. what do we need to do and when will the renters be able to come back to move their stuff and give us back our stuff? This happened today. 4/15/2015

  • When I apply for a job, should I tell them about my disability?
  • Our living TRUST was updated for the state of California; should it be updated for Arizona since this is now our primary residence?
  • I am curious about the 90 day requirement to file a lawsuit for a deficiency on a foreclosed home. In my case, I had a purchase money loan and a second mortgage from the same lender. After the foreclosure, the lender has continued to keep the second mortgage in an "open" status. Is the lender barred from suing on the second mortgage past 90 days of foreclosure or do they have up to the 6 year AZ statute of limitations to sue?
  • Can I go to Visit my Wife in jail? if both me and my wife were arressted for attempted burglary which they say makes us co-defendants,
  • I was evicted from my apartment in 2010 after being admitted to the hospital and never returned for my belongings. Two years later I went back to rectify the money owed to them and clear my credit history. They had no records on me and told me they were under new management. Now it is 2015 and a collection agency is attempting to collect money in arrears due to a broken lease as well as 10% interest for the 5 years since the eviction. I want to dispute these excessive charges but do I need an attorney to help me? Please advise. Thanks.
  • How long past the payment date listed on the lease agreement can a landlord serve an eviction notice? My renters have been served eviction notices in the past and I want to put pressure on them early. If rent is due the 1st - can I serve them on the 2nd?
