I purchased a beauty salon a year ago, for the past several months I have not been able to pay the rent. The landlord has emailed me a letter requesting we turn over the keys and leave all the salon equipment within 7 days. Is there anything I ca...
Assuming no eviction case has been started at this point, answer is yes, say no, then she has to send you a 7-day notice for non-pmt of rent, the file eviction case, another 7-14 days until hearing, then another 10 days to redeem, then landlord can get an eviction order from court, then hire a court officer, so us a good month. You may ask landlord if she will forgive back rent if you move immediately... it sounds like there may be a new tenant in line? Click Pamphlet below for more information.See question
the above bldg. has both retail and residence space. a potential buyer wants a lease/option contract on the entire building and live in the apt. the current lease contract does not have an exit clause other than eviction for non-payment or damage.
I agree with Mr. Jean, but as with any case involving written leases you really have to have a real estate attorney look at the Terms and Conditions. If you are the owner (as Mr Jean noted hard to tell) the Real Estate Lease/Purchase Agreement also. Another option is to negotiate an early buy-out.See question
I have an untenanted rental property in Detroit that I no longer can afford to keep.
I agree with Mr Frederick, but I'm assuming you otherwise own it free and clear. Another option is to go to the Board of Review in March and argue to have taxes reduced.See question
We purchsed a 25 acre lot we split 5 to build but the 20 remaining acres were landlocked. The city did not catch it now home on the 5 has been foreclosed and our 20 acre lot is not useable or sellable? The municipality has many ordinances that th...
Wait, you want to sue the city for not protecting you then? This question cannot be answered in this format; you need to visit an attorney who specializes in real estate- zoning issues. Surveyors are not lawyers so it's hard to sue them for legal malpractice.See question

We can't answer questions here about leases or other documents we don't have before us to read. Although I'm not aware of any law or cases which give a medical right to cancel, there may be some other defense to enforcement in the lease which a real estate attorney could determine by reviewing your son's lease.
Also a landlord has a duty to "mitigate" damages of tenant moving out early to find new tenant, and can't hold previous tenant liable after that.

I am renting and my landlord was switching insurance companies and in the process there was a gap in insurance causing a forfeiture of his land contract with the original owner. Now the original owner wants the house back even though the payments...
It sounds like you're trying to find out the likelihood of the Land Contract actually being forfeited. From you facts, the owner/seller would have a difficult time forfeiting the Land Contract because the breach has already been "cured," assuming the landlord gets legal advise and fight a forfeiture attempt.

Can I be evicted if all my bills are up to date?
Your question is confusing. Did you mean the Lease is not in your name as tenant? Simple answer is all leases are month to month unless longer term in written lease and a landlord can always evict any tenant with a 30-day notice of termination, without giving any specific reason.

My tree fell on my neighbors garage. They have renters in the house. Am I responsible for damage to the tenants belongings in the garage.? Also, if the home owner instructs me not to remove the tree from the garage until their insurance company...
I sort of agree with Mr Fredericks, but there should be some inquiry whether the landlord's insurance covers damages to garage and contents. Did tenants have renter's insurance? So I wouldn't file a claim unless the tenant actually sued me then I'd turn over to my insurer to handle. And get that request to wait in WRITING.See question
We fullfilled our lease and were expecting not all, but most of our deposit of $600 back. We got a letter from landlord saying we owe $1800 for replacing or fixing the carpet where my son broke an ink pen in the livingroom. The size was about 8x8i...
I mostly agree with previous answer, plus I agree with your position on repair over replacement (not sure what carpet ppl means) You should download the landlord-tenant brochure I am attaching and study the section on security deposits. It sounds like some time has passed since you moved out. Probably not worth getting attorney over $600, but it would be if landlord sues you for additional $1800.See question
