• Is it okay for siblings to share a nice apartment together?

    Best answer: If you can get along with your siblings at home then you should be able to get along with them in an apartment - this is far better than living with someone you just met and taking your chances - the 4th person is the only wildcard though he'll probably be fine too. Sounds like a great idea to me, best luck.

  • My landlord wants me to pay for a stolen air conditioner. What should I do?

    The central air unit was stolen. I was home at the time but I didn't hear anything. I don't think it is fair to even ask me to pay for something I didn't do.

    This is in indiana. We have a 1 year lease which we are only 3 months into. We've told him no, but he keeps showing the house to prospective renters. I turned him away one day and he went nuts about me not letting him show it saying I was violating the lease. Since I telecommute and am home when he shows it, I now am letting him show it, but I tell him and the prospectives that they won't be living there and not to sign a lease because we will fight them on trying to move in. We've read through our lease and there is nothing in it that says he is allowed to do this. Is there anything we can do to stop him in advance or do we have to let him show it and take him to court after he tries to sign a lease? If he does sign a lease with someone else will we be able to have that person removed or will we only be able to break our lease and move out?

  • How to kick someone out of your apartment?

    Alright, basically I m trying to kick my mother out of our apartment. I gave her way too many chances and I m done with her already. She doesn t pay bills, constantly steals from us and blames it on other people, gets high, and basically anything that can make a person go mentally insane. I ve tried getting her into a rehab, she refuses. So this is my only route left. I m not dealing with toxic people, especially because we have a 1 year old at the apartment with us. I m not letting her grow up this way. I need to know how to get her out of here. I ve looked up eviction but I m just sorta confused on the whole thing. She isn t on the lease nor pay bills as I said before, and she s constantly in and out for about 6 years now. Basically what I need to know, is can I kick her out without a formal eviction? I ve looked it up and it could be pretty pricey but I ve only read on landlords kicking tenants out or kicking out roommates that actually formally pay bills. She is technically just a freeloader. She won t leave if I just ask her to. I ve even tried giving her 6 months to leave at one point. She left but came right back the next week and when I called police to have her leave they told me she was a resident of the home and they couldn t do anything. I just really need some advice here, I have no knowledge on this type of stuff and asking here is driving me less insane then looking vigorously online for an exact answer. (And please, no negative comments. I m sick of those.)

    After being in a car accident(someone else hit me) I couldn't renew my lease, and had to move somewhere less expensive. I inquired about a basement rental, and specifically told the realtor peace quiet was important to me due to my accident. The assured me this was "absolutely quiet", and I would never have to worry throughout my 6 month lease. That no construction or anything will be going on. Feeling assured by the facts given by the realtor, I signed the lease and paid first months rent and security deposit. 3 months into the lease the landlord is having contractors perform major construction next door to my basement apartment. Finishing an unfinished basement, banging on my wall all day (during business hours). The noise is unbearable as there is no soundproofing (can hear them clearing their throats) I called the realator and she said, oh sorry I thought you knew as there was a work order on the door to the garage! I don't even know what a work order looks like! She said she knew about this but didn't think it was an issue, I asked though and she lied! Can I get out of this lease because of the noise and because I was misled?

    My vet weighed her at 18lbs but my landlord snuck in and brought a scale that says she is 22lbs. She took a picture of it and is telling me I need to get rid of her. Her had is ON my dog in the picture and I think she either had a scale that was inaccurate or was applying pressure to push the weight up. If she tries to evict me, will the vet's weight be considered more reliable or would a pound or two not even matter to the court? I told her the dog is going no where and if she does evict me, I'm a sophomore in college and won't pay her a dime even if she wins for at least 2.5 years when I graduate and look for a job. On top of that, if she evicts me, her house will be severely damaged while I'm moving out. My bf might kick her husbands a.. also.

  • If I have a judgement against my landlord, can I deduct it from rent since he is still refusing to pay?

    The short version is that his lease says he isn't responsible for paying my expenses if the home becomes uninhabitable.

The judge said that wasn't enforceable because the home was uninhabitable due to his negligence. He was ordered to pay about $2300. He has been rude and agressive since the day he got notice. He insists the judge is wrong and he owes me nothing. So far, I've been trying to research collections and it seems really tedious. Can't I just send a note that says this months rent has been applied to his debt?

    Hello, My mother in law is divorced and is still living in her marital home. She is not on the title of the home and her ex husband is requesting $75,000 for his part of the home and he will sign her over the title. At this time she cannot afford this amount of money and a loan is her only option. She has very little credit and my fiancé (her son) was willing to take a loan out in his name to help her. Sort of like a refinance loan and he would be added to the title with her so that it would be a 50/50 share of the home. Unfortunately she decided she would rather take out the loan with her son in law instead of her own son. I feel that she is being very selfish, especially that her own son lives with her at this time. Can she refinance her home with someone who is not related to her? Can she add this person to the title if she wants? Need help! Thanks!

    6 years ago, our lease was up. We signed the paperwork, did a walkthrough, and I got my share of the deposit back. Apparently, after I moved out, two of the guys asked if they could stay month to month instead cancelling our termination without my consent or knowledge. Now the landlord is claiming that since I'm on the most recent lease signed, I'm liable. Years later, I don't have the paperwork anymore, but I do have proof my deposit was returned. Will that be enough to prove that the landlord knows I'm not wasn't a tenant? Is there a statute of limitation on this?

    Best answer: The same amount of time that you normally pay rent. If you rent on a monthly basis, a month. If you rent on a weekly basis, a week. Thus as long as you pay next months rent (which would cover the months notice) you can give your WRITTEN notice any time before but not later than December 1. But as a friend the... show more

OK, so it seems like they are totally in the wrong... but this is where it gets more difficult...the religious tenants were the first people to live in the house and they only moved in on the condition that the landlord wouldn't move in people who wanted to eat non-kosher. so he's made a deal with them and broken it. who's in the wrong? should i put my stuff in the fridge?

He only comes to my rental 2-3 times throughout the week and stays overnight occasionally (once every 2 weeks or so). We are very quiet and my housemates enjoy having him over as their friends with him as well, they think it s a racism issue as my boyfriend is Jamaican and my housemates + their partners are all white. My housemate has his girlfriend over every weekend from friday-monday night and my landlord is fine with that, but refuses to let my boyfriend stay a few hours at the house.
