If you're not an beneficiary in his will, or his spouse or other heir, then you're probably not going to be able to accomplish this without the cooperation of his heirs/beneficiaries. And whether it's a good idea is an entirely separate question. Regardless, you should talk with an attorney before paying off any of his debts or getting the property foreclosed on or evicted by another heir. Good luck,See question
After complaining about floors receding(fridge and toilet falling through the floor) and mold in a letter, I broke my ankle on the kitchen floor. The landlord said he could not fix it so I should move if I felt unsafe. Then said he would send out ...
It sounds like you have some very good defenses to an eviction and perhaps some claims on your own worth bringing. The best way to do that is to contact your own attorney. If you're the prevailing party in a dispute with your landlord, you will be entitled to reimbursement of your attorney fees. So it's well worth while to at least set up a consultation as soon as possible and to attend any court dates between now and then.

Went to my car this morning and I saw court papers hanging from my garage door is that legal? I was under the impression I had to be served by a process server. Or at least served directly. This is a landlord tenant issue. Also the name on the ...
For eviction matters, it may be required to post to your home rather than serve you personally.
As for whether your legal name makes any difference, if you're being summonsed into court--for any reason, especially an eviction--you had better either appear at the time required or talk to your own attorney.See question

As Mr. Stevens says, you're probably correct, but you'd need some evidence of the terms of your prior agreement. Technically, a landlord can't raise the security deposit during the first year of a tenancy. Although that technicality might not help you much, as you're also probably in a month-to-month lease, which means your landlord can terminate your tenancy for any or no reason. (And although you might have a defense that the termination is retaliation, I'd be cautious about betting your housing on it without getting advice from your own attorney).
So you might be better off just paying the security deposit than worrying about whether it is fair.
Of course, if she only "tells" you that you need to be out by September 1, that's not a valid termination notice and you can't be evicted until you get a proper notice. Good luck,See question
I have a signed 6 month lease valid through sept 30 of this year. This was signed by both parties after we went to court in January and signed a stipulated order. The order was to pay rent with a 200 a month increase plus an extra 300 to pay for h...
You can file a request for hearing first thing Monday morning. The form and process are at ORS 105.148. That should at least get a chance to explain your story, but certainly doesn't mean that you're right and won't end up evicted. Once the court has received your request for a hearing, go meet with your own attorney as soon as possible. Good luck,

I agree with Mr. Stevens. *If* you're the personal representative or affiant through the small estate process (both require filings with the court that you might want to discuss with your own attorney), then you likely do not *need* any licensing. That said, if you're managing a rental property, you do need to know what you're doing as being a property manager can be time consuming and landlord/tenant law is detailed and fickle. Whether that means hiring an attorney, seeking out other resources, or hiring a property management company likely depends on the issue(s) that the rental properties are experiencing.See question
My daughter who lives is Salem is going through a divorce and has decided to give the house to her soon to be ex-husband. Since Oregon is a community property state can she just leave him the house and how can she have her name removed from the m...
She cannot simply have her name removed from the mortgage. The bank will expect that she honor her promise of repayment until the property is sold or refinanced. If husband wants to keep the home, he should expect to refinance it. If he can't, they may need another plan.See question
Won a small claims judgement against a veterinarian his insurance co. sent a check and his attorney sent a letter with it saying I'm not authorized to cash it and they will sue me unless I send him a satisfaction of judgement first
I don't see any reason that you need to wait to deposit the check. But if you agree that the check represents the full amount you're owed, you should sign and file (or return) the satisfaction of judgment.
I'm not sure that it would make sense to sue someone for not signing a satisfaction of judgment. But at the same time, I'm not sure why you wouldn't sign it, either. If you're not sure, talk with your own attorney.See question

If your landlord can't put on evidence that you were late with the payments then you can't be evicted for paying the fee. There's an argument to be made that even if you were late in January, if your landlord hasn't given you notice yet, she's likely waived the right to collect the late fee or to terminate your lease for its nonpayment.
That said, you're probably better off not betting your tenancy on free advise, and if you get a termination notice (or eviction complaint) for nonpayment of fees, you'd likely be better off either just paying the fees or consulting with your own attorney. Good luck,See question
New management has changed rules. New management requires that temperature in unit must be between 65 - 75 degrees at all time. They simultaneously banned all window air conditioners. I pointed out that it would be impossible to maintain 75 deg...
Management probably cannot change rules unless it's something you agree to or part of a lease renewal (which again you'd have to agree to). Even if you've "agreed" to this rule, you might want to talk with your own attorney about whether it's enforceable before putting up $900. I doubt they can require you to keep the property cooled down to 75 (and while local Salem rules I believe require the home to be *capable* of being heated to a certain degree, I'm skeptical that they can require you to actually maintain a minimum temperature above keeping the pipes from freezing).See question
