    Generally, the answer is yes, you will have to pay the entire rent. When tenants sign a lease or rental agreement, they obligate themselves to the entirety of the rental amount. How they divide that up is up to them. The landlord does not get involved in that. There would be an exception to the above if the lease specifically provided for each tenant to be responsible for only a portion of the rent, but, again, that is unlikely. As the other tenants vacated before the end of the lease term,...

    Specification in the Ageement is not required. You can evict for waste or nuisance or unlawful business activities conducted on the premises. You can also evict for drug related activity, gang related activity, unlawful use of firearems and assault. 20 Day Notice must be properly served more than 20 days before the end of the rental period (end of month typically). No reason for the notice need be stated or given. If tenant fails to vacate, then they are served with a Summons and Complaint...

    You have several choices. First, if you wish to remain a tenant, get other tenants to sign a petition or otherwise acknowledge they want the problem solved also. Strengh in numbers! Second, if it won't be solved by the landlord, give proper notice of intention to vacate the premises (depending on whether a fixed term or month to month tenant) and then move somewhere else. Third, consider suing the landlord in small claims court for the diminished value of your tenancy due to the noise. If...

    If liability is clear, the insurance carrier for the at fault party typically tries to settle the car damage as soon as possible. This is so as to avoid additional claims for loss of use or diminished value due to depreciation. If you have coverage under your own policy, you can use that to get it repaired. Your company will then go after the other to collect, including your deductible. The above aside, a defendant does not have to pay until they agree their insured is at fault, or a...

    You should retain an attorney in the appropriate jurisdiction to file pleadings requesting an order to stay current collection proceedings, pending a hearing on a motion to dismiss the judgment based on the running of the statute of limitations. Different states have different rules on how to proceed in matters such as this.

    You have a claim for medical malpractice based on negligence. Such claims are governed by statute and case law, and are complicated. You should discuss this with a local attorney, who will want to obtain information about issues including liability and potential damages.

    12 months notice is required if there is to be a change of use from a mobile home park. If it simply a sale to a new owner, the new owner would have to assume the leases of existing tenants.

    Your brother may make a claim against the person that struck him. He may also make claim against the homeowner, if there is a factual and legal basis to support liability. If that claim were to be successful, the homeowner's insurance would then be a source to obtain payment. Your brother should discuss this matter with a personal injury attorney in his jurisdiction.
