• Not renewing lease?

    My mom and I leased an apartment and now it’s time for renewal. But I don’t want to renew the lease but my mom does. Can my mom renew on her own?

    I live in a single room shared house and I want to put my luggages and new laundry rail dryer away, you know those things that take up space but the landlord said there's no space in the the shed at the garden, and I can't carry on sticking my luggage on top of her old freezer under the stairs and she won't let us access the living room just to store stuff. On top of that, no broadband available and no broadband wiring allowed. What do I do?

  • How badly can breaking an apartment lease hurt your credit?

    I'm 8 months into a 13 month lease and have decided to buy a house. Per my lease agreement I have to give 60 days notice before I move out and then pay 2 months rent to break the lease. They initially waive my security deposit when I moved in. There is some damage to the apartment but nothing major. Can they... show more
    I'm 8 months into a 13 month lease and have decided to buy a house. Per my lease agreement I have to give 60 days notice before I move out and then pay 2 months rent to break the lease. They initially waive my security deposit when I moved in. There is some damage to the apartment but nothing major. Can they retroactively charge me for damage since I didn't pay a damage deposit? Ive been approved to buy the house I want and closing in 2 weeks. I just now gave my notice to vacate. So my question is how badly can it affect my credit and/or could they file charges or hire a creditor against me if I just vacate without paying the additional 60 days notice worth of rent and then the 2 months worth to break the lease?

  • If my apartment lease has a zero tolerance rule for possession of firearms, how would they ever catch you violating that?

    Two things about landlord tenent law in my State: 1. Landlords and property managers must provide 24 hours notice to enter your rental, unless you invite them, or it is a case of DEMONSTRATABLE emergency. Which means the property manager isnt going to find out by way of walking in and catching me red handed... show more
    Two things about landlord tenent law in my State: 1. Landlords and property managers must provide 24 hours notice to enter your rental, unless you invite them, or it is a case of DEMONSTRATABLE emergency. Which means the property manager isnt going to find out by way of walking in and catching me red handed cleaning my gun. 2. In my State, and I suspect all others, they are prohibited from searching a tenents personal property. Which means during inspections, they can walk through every room, they can open their own closets, pantries and cabinets, but they cannot open any boxes, bags or containers within that closet belonging to the tenent. And they sure as hell cant open my dresser drawers. So if I have a concealed carry permit and ONE firearm, my revolver, how are they finding out about it? If they ever entered unlawfully, or found it by ruffling through my personal property, then they are in a bit of a quandry: They cant file for eviction without admitting in court that they violated the law themselves.

  • Can my gated community restrict who I throw a party for in the community venue?

    Best answer: They can have any rules they want. But I imagine the restriction is on who is the host of the party; that is, who is responsible for what happens. It's hard to believe they care who the "guest of honor" is. On the other hand, they probably won't let anyone throw a rent party where you charge... show more

  • I own a shop in a strip mall and the property management signed a lease with an exclusive use clause with another store?

    The store tried to sue me to make me stop selling certain products but my lawyer got the case dismissed because my lease existed first and I have no "privity" to their lease with the management company. Now they are suing the property management company and they are all pressuring me to end my lease. ... show more

Now they are suing the property management company and they are all pressuring me to end my lease. My store is small and we don't make a lot of money. Last year we had about $250,000 in sales (not profit). Since I have 3 years left on the lease, would it be fair to demand $750,000 to buy out my lease or would that be too much?

    So, my boyfriend and I live in upstate new york and we are currently renting out an apartment.. technically a bedroom. Our landlord terminated our lease directly after we made a complaint about rat feces in our cabinet. Then told us we need to be out by a certain date. She has breached the lease multiple times between raising the rent due to heat (even though all utilities are included) and coming into our apartment without 24 hours notice (even though there wasn't an emergency). She has also been calling my workplace threatening me saying that i'll get kicked out if i don't pay this months rent. Is this illegal?

  • Should I except the house from my father and mother in law? They act funny, they're half way telling me stuff but want me to sign paperwork?

    Best answer: NO! Do not let them bully you into signing if you are not ready. Wanting to see the house & read through the paperwork is smart & standard. They are acting a little shady in trying to push you into this. Buying house needs to be a mutual decision in a marriage not one partner bullying the other into it.

  • Why is owner showing house already sold?

    The house says it was sold a few days ago, "bought with Redfin", yet the owner texted me back (I responded to their listing) to say there's an open house today. They are offering seller financing and/or a lease option. What does this mean?

  • Why are houses in the UK so old?

    Especially in Scotland, even new houses that are built still look old like a 70s style house which looks dreadful.

He stated that he does not want my boyfriend signing the lease because he’s not going to sue his son. If his father is thinking he’s going to sue me one day, and keeping his son off the lease for that reason, is that legal? Is he allowed to rent to two people, but only let one sign the lease, and let his son off the lease, but still live there and not be legally responsible for anything?

    I'm 22 I've only ever had one job for a few years making minimum wage and I'm at the point where I feel like I should decide what I want to do and get a real job. I've always had an intrest in property and houses but never really consider doing it as a job. Then I heard you can take an online course and a state test to get a license. My question is is this realistic and how hard is it to get hired after you get a license? I don't want to waste a bunch of money on this only to find out that it's not an actual career. I'm very confident that I can do the course and pass the test no problem. I'm good at stuff like that but I'm just afraid of getting into this only to find out there's no real money to be made. Thanks.
