    I agree with the advice given to you by the other attorney with regards to the Landlord’s name. With regard to whether the landlord can enter your property at such an early hour, it would have to be under very strict and special circumstances; otherwise he would be in violation of the lease’s “covenant of quiet enjoyment” Covenant of Quiet Enjoyment Typically this is a promise, that you have the right to use the property without interference from the landlord. This promise is typically...

    Typically individual credit issues will remain with the individual. Exceptions to this include when the individual account has been guaranteed, commonly "co-signed" by another individual. In these instances the co-signor's credit will also be affected by the actions of the original debtor. When you get married, your individual credit will likely remain your own individual credit, unless your girlfriend co-signs or converts your accounts to joint accounts, which would bind her contractually...

  5. Certified Mail for delivery of 5 day eviction notice not picked up

    Answered almost 3 years ago.

    1 lawyer answer

    The issue is whether or not the tenant has received service of the 5 day notice. The facts as presented by you are that the notice was dispatched, but you do not have any proof that the tenant received the notice. When the court requires proof, you will not be able to provide it, and your action can be dismissed, and you will have to start over. With regards to delivering it personally, this is not recommended; typically the sheriff department has a civil enforcement division which can...

  6. Do I have to give a 60 day notice while renting month to month if there is no lease?

    Answered almost 3 years ago.

    1. Sammid J Mansoor
    1 lawyer answer

    Most likely not. You would most likely be liable from 30 days from the date of notice and to the end of the month that the 30 days expired. For example if you gave notice February 14, you would be liable to March 31. Explanation: First of all, if your lease is valid, it will likely control. The lease is a contract presumably formed by two competent parties. It outlines the agreement between the parties; therefore Judges are hesitant to set aside what is spelled out in the document. So...

  7. What are the chances of going to jail from a reckless driving charge in virginia if it is your first offense.No speed on ticket

    Reckless Driving in Virginia is a class one misdemeanor, and therefore being charged with this violation should be taken very seriously. This is a criminal code violation, and the jail time however short it may be or even if it is suspended is not necessarily the worst of the penalty. Because this is a criminal charge, if found Guilty, you will have a CRIMINAL record, which may have to be disclosed on school applications, work applications, loan applications, security applications etc....

  8. Does this constitute a breach of contract?

    Answered almost 5 years ago.

    1. Sammid J Mansoor
    1 lawyer answer

    First look for a definition of "seasonal" bugs in your lease. It probably doesn't contain one. This would make the contract ambiguous and give you a leg to stand on. Now explain to the landlord that he has certain covenants which are implied in law, and that he is in breach, specifically the covenant of quiet enjoyment. A covenant is a promise to engage in or refrain from a specified action. The covenant of quiet enjoyment where landlord agrees that the tenant shall peaceably enjoy the...

    This is a complicated situation, and additional information is required for a proper answer. You definitely need to consult with an attorney. First, sorry to say it, but you are probably going to lose this one. Before you decide to pursue this matter further try to decide if you have enough information to go forward, and who to go forward against.
