I recently found posted to my apartment door an unsigned bill for $200 for back-rent. The landlord claims my rent increased by $50/mth in September. I wrote a letter stating he cannot retroactively increase my rent and needs to provide 30 days w...
sounds like a lying SOS. don't pay the rent increase if you are willing to go to court. sounds like you would be the more credible partySee question
The relative is an adult child that is a part-time caretaker to their adult mother. The mother is on the lease, and has been for 11 years. The only co-lessee was the adult mother's (now deceased) husband. The adult child co-inhabits the dwellin...
the child could agree to be on lease voluntarily. the mom could not (should not) be evicted if the child declines. I agree there is no legal requirement either way.See question
After my divorce is final in January, I plan to move with my daughter to a smaller apartment. My husband has been staying with us even though I asked him to leave in November. I even offered to pay his first two months rent in a smaller place. ...
He will be evicted. and yes you could be liable for any money judgment -- unless you get your husband to indemnify you now. another idea is to get the landlord to agree not to seek judgment against him only. or you could move to evict him yourself while you still have a right of possession ...See question
We have been served with a unlawful detainer. The plaintif listed on the summons is not our landlord as far as we know. We have been dealing with another "landlord" since we moved in back in March. We have had several issues with our "landlord" su...
I'm confused and interested about your other (fake?) landlord. if this person even has standing to sue the eviction appears to be slam-dunk retaliatory and defensible as habitability. but .... what are your intentions? was the home red tagged? are you moving? are you planning a lawsuit?See question
Just recently told management about mold growing on master bath ceiling along with water coming out of the air vent in the bathroom. They came and inspected it and discovered that several (3-4) units have water leaks in the walls/structure of the ...
You should stay in the motel. here's why: you reported conditions. they immediately investigated and immediately advised you that the unit was not habitable and offered to house you in a motel. so far so good. if it turns out that you have some basis for a complaint in the future - I don't see one yet ---- it will hurt your case if you opted to stay put instead. in any case you have suffered some inconvenience and you could ask for a free month in compensation.See question
I have a lease. Ive been late before on rent and always paid, even a mo late. a 3- day was mailed not posted or given to me, 2 mo later a new 3 day was mailed and then summons and complaint given to my sons friend outside of my apt. My son visitin...
or since you're sitting around waiting for the sheriff why don't you look for a new apt with the rent money you're not paying ??See question
yes ... and if they still pursue a ud after accepting rent, that is a defense in the answer formSee question
They both signed the rental agreement and I no longer want one of them in the residence due to property damage.
I don't see why you can't serve just one with a notice. if he doesn't move out, yes you should be able to file a ud. however some courts require the owner being the action. are you the owner?See question
and i keep calling the court house and they said there wasn't any proof of serve
The question is always if you we're not served how did you learn if the suit? the answer may be that you got a mailing from the court. you do not have to let it go to default and you do not have to cede the issue of service.
you can file a motion to quash service of Summons -- if there was no service the court has no jurisdiction. if you find an experienced eviction defense lawyer, these are pretty boilerplate and shouldn't cost too much to produce for you .
otoh the process server might lie about service and unless you can show you were out of town at the time the alleged service happened, you will lose the argument
as to what makes sense -- do you have some important claim to make or are you just buying time. money is generally better spent preparing to move than in fighting eviction.See question
I rented a condo near my University. My roommate's family friend visited. We all went out for tacos, except the family friend because she decided to shower instead. The glass shower door fell and shattered on her, and she had to get 4 stitches on ...
A small claims case, really? Not necessarily. As far as negligence, the owner is likely to have liability if the door was negligently installed. it is more likely that it was incorrectly installed than that there is product defect. Meds seems very low at 2000 --- is that just what she had to pay under her insurance ? pain an suffering could be more substantial than the 10k small claims limit, ESP if there are broken bones. talk to a pi lawyer on your area before you go the small claims routeSee question
