I am not aware of any law that would allow you to break the lease. it is possible that it was not legal for you both to move in there in the first place, depending on some local housing code. You could call code enforcement for information. However, it seems crummy to get code enforcement on your landlord after you have been taking advantage of the situation for 9 months.
If the apartment is desirable, then you may find your landlord willing to terminate early so he can get a new tenant,...
A 1 year lease will become a month-month agreement if the tenants stay on after the lease expires and the landlord keeps accepting the rent. The month-month agreement assumed by law will have the same terms as the lease had where possible (same rent, same tenants, same house rules etc.) The month-month agreement will be governed by the landlord/tenant law in any instances where the 1-year lease does not apply (for example the rules for terminating the tenancy).
At the end of the lease you...
RCW 59.18.060(6) requires the landlord to provide "reasonably adequate locks". Generally I think this would be applied to the actual dwelling unit, but it is not an unreasonable stretch to apply it to common-area doors as well. This requirement will be read into a rental agreement in Washington.
A crucial issue in many landlord/tenant cases is notice. The statute generally requires written notice of a defect in order to trigger a landlord's responsibility, at least for remedies under the...
Weekends and holidays count. You do not count the date that the notice was served on. So, for example, if the notice were served on Thursday, you would count: Friday, Saturday, Sunday. You must pay or vacate by Sunday.
If the notice was served by posting and mailing, instead of personally served, then you have four days.
You can petition to modify the parenting plan. This is difficult and you will probably not succeed with out an attorney's help.
If you refuse to let the children go, you can be found in contempt by the court. Your parenting time could be further restricted and eventually the police would get involved.
Do not refuse to abide by the parenting plan unless your children are in imminent danger. If they are, contact a family-law attorney immediately.
I agree with the others. I want to emphasize how dangerous the situation is with a valid 3-day notice. On the 4th day after the notice is served, your landlord can file an unlawful detainer (eviction) suit against you. He doesn't have to negotiate or notify you further. Once the UD is filed the filing is on you record EVEN IF IT IS LATER DISMISSED AFTER NETOTIATION OR EVEN IF YOU EVENTUALLY WIN IN COURT OR IF THE SHERIFF IS NOT NEEDED TO REMOVE YOU. Many landlords do not look any further than...
The default tenancy is a month-month rental agreement. It can be oral. The proper procedure here is to serve her with a 3-day pay or vacate notice (oral is not good enough), followed with filing an unlawful detainer suit, and eventually getting a sheriff's writ. You should get an attorney to do the paperwork and arrange service or research the proper steps online or at the library. Failing to follow the proper procedure can lead to having to start over, which loses lots of time.
There are too many facts here to give a useful answer online. You should be represented by a family law attorney on both the visitation and proper-court issues.
You cannot simply write to a judge and complain about somebody lying.
Do not violate the terms of a court order - once again, you need to hire an attorney.
Technically it will depend on how you have used the property. If a judge would believe that both parties recognized a situation where he had the use of the house and parking and you controlled or shared the rest, then that is a right that should continue. However, it is not a normal situation so it will come down to details. How big is the property? How much space separates the house and your trailer? How often did you have other guests?
Practically, without a written lease, and with your...
This will depend on what your rental agreement says. A good agreement will require that you not interfere with your neighbor's use of their apartments if you are in an apartment building or duplex. I think having a television crew on site regularly would be a violation of such a clause.
If it is a single-family dwelling then you have a better chance, but it will still depend on the language of the agreement.
It is impossible to answer the release question without knowing what it says...
