  • Why do people insist a person cannot be a legal tenant without being on the lease?

    Lax landlords will give verbal permission for a person to live in a rental. Some never have a written lease. For example, I know someone that rented from his aunt and NEVER had a written lease. But they are LEGAL tenants on LEGAL month to month verbal lease. I have known of landlords giving verbal permission... show more

But they are LEGAL tenants on LEGAL month to month verbal lease. I have known of landlords giving verbal permission for a roommate to move in...sure they are not protected by a written lease, but they are still LEGAL tenants eligible for and have access to all amenities.

    Hello, I recently got a ESA recommendation letter in the state of Ohio, I know that landlords have to recognize this as long as the animal doesn't cause any harm to the property. My rental agreement is month to month and states no smoking and no pets. I'm afraid to even mention to him the thought of getting a pet, i'm afraid that he might become angered and try to evict me. Having a month to month agreement makes me even more afraid of this. Is there any chance he could evict me legally?

  • Tenants won’t leave after giving deposit back early?

    Best answer: Legally: No. Nothing is cancelled. If you want and expect them to leave by the end of their lease you have to give them a Notice to Quit (asked them to leave) all refunding their deposit did was give them money. If you don't ask them to leave, after the lease expires, they legally go into a month-to-month... show more
    Best answer: Legally:
    No. Nothing is cancelled. If you want and expect them to leave by the end of their lease you have to give them a Notice to Quit (asked them to leave) all refunding their deposit did was give them money. If you don't ask them to leave, after the lease expires, they legally go into a month-to-month rental agreement whether there's a paper lease or not and unless you talk to them or renew your own lease with them to change things such as increase or decrease rent or change rules or anything all State tenant and landlord rights and laws will apply.

    No offense but it doesn't seem like you know the rental laws and you really should know them before you get yourself into a huge mess because you didn't take the correct due process steps. If you do not conduct due process, by law, being a landlord....you're going to dig yourself a hole and kick yourself in the butt into that hole just winging it and asking people on yahoo what to do.

    Sound advice: Learn the rental laws.

    You have the option of renewing the lease as it is with them, renewing an agreement with them on different (your) terms, or giving them a Notice to Quit 60 days before the end of their lease. The Notice to Quit is a form title that's part of a landlords legally bound due process in getting tenants out of their property.

    In laymans terms:
    You have to either renew the lease with them or ask them to leave.
    If you ask them to leave it's best you do it correctly by law by giving them formal Notice to Quit.
    If you do not do it correctly it's going to be a pain in the butt getting them out if you want them out.
    That's if they don't want to leave and know the laws...

    Sound advise:
    Your best idea is calling your county court house and being short like you were here with your question, tell them what you want (whether it's that they leave or stay) and ask them how you go about doing it legally and correctly.
    Pennsylvania has free Legal Services that help people for free in situations like yours. One of them is called MidPenn Legal Services (They're in my area, not sure if they're state wide or not).

    I highly recommend talking to a lawyer. If the court house also suggests that, that is truly what you need to do.
    If you screw up the due process of what you want to do with a rental property you're creating a very bad bad bad nightmare for yourself. Learn the laws, learn the processes, or don't be a landlord because if you don't know how to do the processes correctly you're going to destroy yourself and your tenants and tenants families.

    It’s part time and I only have Mondays off. $8 an hour with bi-weekly checks of $200-$300 My friend has the same hours and only gets Sundays off. We have 401K after a new company took over. We’re looking into getting a house. We can’t rent as no one in my town allows pets. Not even apartments. Trust me, I looked. We own 5 cats of various ages. As for the desired house, we don’t care. As long as it’s decent and not in a major flood zone. By decent, I mean mostly maintained and not literally falling apart. We’re not picky. I’m just asking, can we get a house? Price is $30,000 and below as I know with us having no credit brings us with a limited selection. I’d like to know what can we do? Also, can’t get credit cards cause my mom hates them with a passion.

  • Should I use my existing savings to pay off my loan, or just continue saving?

    I set aside money from each pay check into savings, and currently have enough to pay off the remainder of my auto loan, roughly $18k. Do you think it'd be wiser to pay off the loan and then start setting aside what I had been paying towards my savings, or hold onto my existing money in case anything came up?

    Ok so I asked this already but I feel I didn’t word it correctly. I am a high school student and I have been working part time at a grocery store for 2 weeks. Now I am currently very sick and had to call it in. (I couldn’t even get off the toilet). Anyway I have taken last minute calls into work and have had no slipups for ANYTHING aside from my bike breaking which I showed them after work. I also try to make it clear that I enjoy working there and would gladly take more hours. This is my first call in and I talked to the manager personally stating that I could come in at a later time if needed but he insisted that because I’m sure I have food poisoning or stomach flue that I stay home. I live in Canada where i’m not sure if it’s legal to fire people for calling in sick. As an opinion do you think they will toss me? What follow up action should I take to ensure I can hold my position? Thanks for the help.

    I got my first ever job this year in May as a sales assistant. It started off great, I loved waking up in the morning knowing that I am finally earning money. I wasn't the best sales assistant but I got the hang of what I needed to do and what to ask customers and all of that rubbish. However, things started to go south a few weeks ago when the company hired a new girl. I was getting comments from other staff members saying she's better than me and that I am basically a waste of space to the company and should just find somewhere else. Obviously that comment has scarred me and left me feeling uncomfortable attending work. But to be honest, I believe my manager has been my main problem. Reason for this is because it seems like whatever I do is never enough. She is finding to constantly moan about like why aren't you saying it like this and why are you doing that. She regularly compares me to the other girl saying 'I don't want to keep comparing you two but she does this, and she does that' and it kinda just puts you in that mind set where its like what the f*cking point coming here if my job isn't valued. Yesterday my manager lashed out at me and calling me a *****. I suffer with depression and really bad anxiety on a daily basis so when I am being treated like this nearly every day, it makes me uncomfortable to work in that environment. Its just making me really depressed like whenever I've got a day off I spend the majority of the day depressed and worried about work

  • How much rent a month do you think is fair enough?

    I’m staying with my Dad to get on my feet. He thinks because I make decent money I should pay his rent some months. Thing is I cook everyday and clean. If I didn’t it wouldn’t be good to eat or the house would be dirty. Plus I give him $300-$350 a month and help buy things here and there. What is acceptable?
