    Seems like you understand the pros & cons of your options. I think only you can decide if it's worth paying the $ & trying to enter a stipulated judgment. Still doing nothing would be the worst option. If you are represented by local counsel that will increase your leverage & probably win you better terms. Good luck & Happy Holidays!

    Deian’s Answer

    Sounds like you need to contact an experienced construction attorney who can review the contracts you've signed and inquire about other facts related to the dealings between you and the contractor. Only after reviewing the Ks can the attorney give you proper advice. You should contact local counsel.

  • My unit burned what can I do/?

    I rent a town home and my son's room got on fire due to the wall socket, and now I'm staying in a hotel. What can I do?

    Deian’s Answer

    You need to provide more information. Did the town home burn completely? Is it being repaired? What is you LL saying about this? Any insurance out there? What is your concern really? About your stuff that burned? About where you're going to live next? About the cost of the hotel?

  • Named and unnamed tenants- Who must be included in unlawful detainer ?

    Deian’s Answer

    I agree with the two answers above. Still, I think the gist of your question is whether you can be evicted if your H is not named as a defendant. I'd say yes. As you stated LL knows that H won't pay the rent & that H does not live there at all, so maybe LL is on friendly terms w H, trusts H, and has decided not to name H (knowing the details of your divorce). I took over a similar case where Mom & Adult Son lived in a rental property. Both were named in the UD case, but because Son was not properly served with process (before I got involved) the Judge dismissed him from the UD case. So Son remained legally in the unit. When Mom stayed there post eviction LL called the police & had her arrested. Then we re-filed against Son & evicted him as well. So in your case if LL evicts you you can't be there, but your H can. Hope this helps.

  • Are tenants responsible for mold/mildew growing in the bathroom ceiling and should we have to clean/pay someone to come fix it?

    Our landlord said that we didn't notify her before so now expects us to fix it ourselves. Can she hold the lease against us?

    Deian’s Answer

    I recently had a case where after T moved out LL discovered mold. LL claimed that T failed to notify LL about it thus LL was claiming T's entire security deposit + more. At trial the Judge ordered LL to return most of the security deposit to the T. Does lease say anything about mold? When did you discover? When did you notify LL?

    Deian’s Answer

    There's probably more to this story than you're telling us. Why don't you see a local attorney who can review the lease and discuss all the facts with you. It's not clear what kind of facility this is ... whether the master lease is referenced in the sublease, etc.

    Probably not, but you're not giving enough detail. You need to sit down w a local attorney who can review the lease and question you about the facts / business / location / % agreement so that they can give you proper advice.

    Deian’s Answer

    She has to give you notice to evict you. She'd be violating the law if she does not. There may also be employment law implications here, as well as other elder law issues. I'd say find yourself a new place soon since you now have a job. Then consult an attorney with respect to this lady.
