    Unless you have an agreement to the contrary, once they're installed they become part of the building and property of the landlord. Check your original lease though, many leases renew under the same terms just on a month to month basis, if that's the case and that lease stated that the tenant could remove and keep fixtures and equipment the tenant installed then you may be able to keep it.

  • There are people squatting my abandoned house in NOLA, what are the laws surrounding evicting them?

    The squatters claimed residency and showed me mail over 30 days old stating that I had to go through a court eviction process.

    Bryan’s Answer

    If the police are unwilling to remove them from the residence then go through the formal eviction process which would be to serve them with a 5 day notice to vacate. If they're still there after 5 business days then you can file for eviction in either city court or justice of the peace court depending on where the property is located.

  • Is the landlord responsible for removing rodents from my house?

    I hace paid the rent until march of 2015, i have young children and am concerned for their health. There are droppings in bedrooms and have seen several mice. Can you help?

    Bryan’s Answer

    The landlord is responsible for keeping the place livable, i.e. rodent free. Give the landlord formal notice (certified letter, return receipt requested) of the problem, if he doesn't fix the problem within a reasonable amount of time (usually 1 month) then you can have the problem fixed yourself and deduct that cost from your rental payments. Keep proper documentation of everything though.

  • I terminated a 4 bedroom apartment unit lease? Do I have to find a replacement for 4 bedroom unit only?

    I was told I have to pay a $250 penalty fee and find someone to fill my spot. Do I need to fill a spot for the 4 bedroom unit only that is on the contract?

    Bryan’s Answer

    That would have to be a specific provision of the lease so read the lease to see if those provisions are actually in there.

    The biological mother could petition the court for custody, it's unlikely she will do that since she hasn't been around in six years but she could. I agree you should petition for an inter family adoption ASAP

    Bryan’s Answer

    1. Paternity would have to be established. 2. Child support is only retroactive to the date of judicial demand, i.e. the date she filed for a petition or motion for child support. 3. Child support end at age 18 or age 19 if the child is still in high school. 4. Parents are not obligated to pay child for any child related expenses once the child turns 18 unless the parent agrees to pay or is order by a court to pay.
