If the property you are renting is in foreclosure you are going to get mail addressed to Occupant. You'll want to open that mail and read it carefully. So long as you pay rent to your landlord, you aren't likely to get evicted. Once the sale happens, you have sixty (60) days before you can be evicted for non-payment of rent, or make a new agreement with the new owner. Your landlord's verbal statements are meaningless; landlord-tenant notices must be in writing, even if the contract is not.See question
married for 38 years found out we are not divorced ha had remarried 28 years ago now im trying to file for the legal divorce and they wont give me the information i need
If you are not divorced, you are married - to a bigamist. This is his problem, not yours. Please consult with local family law counsel who can help you. I wish you all the best with this. Elizabeth PowellSee question

Please go to the city Building Department with your letter requesting repairs and ask them to come inspect.
If they don't know what you are talking about go find the Deputy Prosecuting Attorney who handles civil matters and take them a copy of RCW 59.18.155(2). They have five days to figure it out. You have your evidence. Go to court. Elizabeth Powell

If they continue to insist that you sign an NDA consider suing the owner of the apartment in small claims. You are being played. Small claims is the fastest way to get your money back.
What they are doing is legal but stupid, They think you are so eager to get compensated that you will walk all over your rights for them. It is hush money. AFTER you get your money, contact a reporter.See question
I was researching online and found that in WA state you remain married from a tax perspective until your divorce is final, even though you're legally separated. Is this true? that means neither husband nor wife can file income tax as SINGLE? T...
True. The document that ends a marriage is a Decree of Dissolution. A Decree of Legal Separation is different.See question

The RLTA allows you as a neighbor to demand that the landlord of your next-door neighbor commence eviction proceedings. It is not complex to do this, you just have to read and follow the rules. See RCW 59.18.500 et seq. I know that a dog entering your property is a stretch for gang-related activity, but it is worth a try. Your other alternative is to get an anti-harassment order against your neighbors.See question
My ex's attorney left a notice to appear on my door. I was not home. As far as what I read in the RCW's and civil rules personal service is required. I am not represented by an attorney
When you are representing yourself, you are held to the same standards as a practicing attorney. So long as the original service of process was done correctly, after that, CR5 applies. A lawyer has to accept documents (including notices of hearings) at their office or their home if they don't have an office. The formal fan-dance of service only applies to the summons and complaint/petition. After that, leaving notices on your door is completely acceptable.See question
Been going through a parenting plan negotiation for over a year. My ex keeps being told by courts to go to mediation but all he does is extend the court case. My lawyer is dying and I dont think hes gonna make it that long...what do I do?
Sorry to hear this. A solo lawyer will have designated a back-up lawyer to handle their cases. If you cannot locate that designated back-up person, you can call the Bar and ask who is handling his cases.

See RCW 59.18.290. Then read up on Replevin and conversion. You do "look bad" but two wrongs don't make anything right. Landlords cannot terminate tenancies without judicial oversight or an agreement. This is called a self-help eviction and conversion.

I agree with Mr. Moss. You are not liable for any debts of his for which you did not co-sign.See question
