If I own a house in a city where there is no rent control and I rent it out under a 1-year lease, am I free to ask the tenant to vacate at the end of the lease term or do I have to have a valid reason to do so? If so, where do I find the list of r...
It's hard to say, without knowing your city and w/o research whether other restrictions apply. If there are none, your contract will govern. Does it require notice of intent not to renew?See question
acquired an express easement of access from another adjoining land owner. He is now willing to grant us an easement across his property as well as use of the easement he obtained from his neighbor thereby giving us access to our property. C...
As to the express easement, it will depend upon what it says. Your neighbor cannot grant more rights than he owns. You may have implied or necessity based easements that a court could establish.See question
Note: I had no problem with the property manager, who left a year+ ago. I now deal with the owner in Illinois. Am on month-to-month. She is unaware that there are nay laws governing Landlord/Tenant relations.
Reminds me of the lawyer joke about "What time would you like it to be?" The response is somewhat in jest, but I wonder what the notice says, and what you want. If she said she wants you out in 30 days, and you can find a new place mid-month, you could probably just follow her lead.
On the other hand, since you are on a month to month, you can pay a month's rent at the end of the month, and stay there for another month. That's the meaning of month-to-month.
affecting my job and career. I told my managers (who are higher than he is) and they are taking immediate action. I am curious though how I should be handling this situation. Should I be getting an attorney to file a sexual harassment lawsuit o...
I'd recommend you see a lawyer, and talk to him or her about whether you should file a claim. Even if you don't file a claim, however, I think you should talk to a lawyer to get advice on how to protect yourself from retaliation.See question
I had cancelled 2 days before the appointment however I can not prove that but every month since last November they have been charging a $20.00 service charge and I have tried calling them several times and they do not answer the phone. the total ...
You might want to try to involve the Better Business Bureau in this. They're probably not legally entitled to do this, and likely will never try to collect, but it's not feasible for you to hire a lawyer to fight it, and they know that. The prior answer provides a good option to try to make it go away, and if they cashed the check, you would have a good legal defense, but again be in the predicament of them perhaps ignoring the law and still pursuing you.
(They are likely violating the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act, FYI.)
Lastly, do they have a Facebook page? You could comment about your experiences on it, and perhaps that will get their attention.
The house has plenty of room for the four of us but we didnt know if it was legal to move in
Provided it's not prohibited by the lease, you can.See question
From the limited facts you provide, it appears the answer is yes. Please provide more details as to the situation. Is there a divorce involved? Are you doing this for credit related reasons?See question
leave. He sighned a 1 yr standard lease agreement. When he moved in to unit it was quiet and a week into his stay the owners of condo upstairs started ripping up floors and putting in hardwood and since then he is awake all night or woken up at ...
Whether or not he can leave will depend upon the terms of the lease, the amount of the noise, and how long it continues. The condominium's declaration may have restrictions on hardwood floors; you should check into that. Has anyone spoken to the owners upstairs? If they buy some rugs, that could solve (or at least reduce) the problem.See question
My lease is up in August and he is increasing rent by more than 10%. He just told us yesterday though, that's only giving us 18 days notice. Doesn't he need to give us more notice than that?
To some extent, it may depend upon the terms of your lease. Does it have a renewal provision?
If it doesn't have a provision regarding your renewal rights, and if you haven't negotiated a new lease, the terms of your new lease will be subject to negotiation. He can probably increase your rent, but you may be willing to convince him to not increase them that much, in order to keep you as a tenant, and not have to re-let the place. If you move out, he may lose a month's rent, and that would almost equal the 10% increase.See question
city council won't do anything and niether will the person that put thee ccr's in place. it's a new development and it's starting to look like trash.
The City isn't responsible for enforcing them; the association should have a board who should take that responsibility. Sometimes, however, developers are unaware of or unwilling to assume this obligation. If they fail to do so, your association's C,C & Rs may allow you and/or other members of the association to enforce the governing documents. I would recommend contacting an attorney who specializes in community association law. You can find additional information on Utah Community Association Law on my blog, and my firm's webpage, both of which are linked below.See question
