And after the work is done, the tenant can pay the repairman, with the agreement that the tenant can just deduct that amount from the next months rent. That is acceptable to the landlord. But the tenant refuses to do it that way, is there Any obligation that the Landlord HAS TO be the one to search for, hire and pay the repairman directly? Issue is in the state of Georgia, if that matters.

(We’re both 23Yrs of age) Anyways I guess the question I’m trying to ask is WHAT ARE THE FIRST STEPS IN FIGURING ALL THIS OUT? I WANT AS MUCH INFORMATION THAT I CAN GET! IS THERE A LONG PROCESS? HOW DO I GET A REALTOR? HOW & WHEN DO I TRY TO GET A LOAN? HOW CAN I FIND OUT HOW MUCH HOME WE CAN AFFORD?! Anything info u can give me would be great! Thank u so much...

  • Do I need to return rented appliances/fixtures from a previous owner on a house I closed on when it was never disclosed as rented?

The purchase agreement didn t mention any exclusion of fixtures and appliances other than the washer/dryer so I assumed the house came with the softener. Do I have to return it? The purchase agreement also said all fixtures should be free of all liens. I valued the house in part due to that softener being included.

  • Can a lanlord collect double rent in Maryland?

    My lease was up on Dec 17th. The lease states to give 60 day notice of move out. I gave a 30 day notice because I was still searching for a decent new place and wasn t sure if I wanted to move. (no excuse). After I gave my notice I talked to the leasing on the phone who told me I would have to pay the whole month of December and half of January (around $2000 total) for only giving 30 days notice and they put my apartment unit on their website as available to rent for a week after I move out Dec 24th. This is where it gets good. They sent me a letter stating my move out charges. They had the month of November and December. December was PRORATED for only the 1st to the 17th. Cool I figured they rented the apartment to someone already as the unit was no longer available on the website as well. hmmmm. Fast forward to today Jan 16th, they send me an email with a bunch of new charges. $600 for Dec 18th to 31st. $740 for Jan 1st to 17th. on top of $600 for cleaning, all dated for todays date. I understand the cleaning fee, which should have been took out of my deposit anyway, but why am I still paying for the other half of Dec and January when they have a new tenant that moved in on Dec 24th? Isn t that considered double rent? Especially after they prorated my December rent. I m just trying to figure out if I should take this to court.

    I m 21 years old and I m considering buying a house (getting a mortgage of course) I ve been on my own since 16 working hard and jumping from rental to rental. Because of my age most landlords only offer a 6 month - 1 year lease which is kind of annoying and its usually crappy places. After my lease ends I do get asked if I d like to renew for a longer lease but usually I just end up leaving because either they raise the rent or I just feel like going somewhere new. I got married at 19 and living with my husband (21 as well) at our current rental but we are considering getting a house but our parents warn is that we are a bit young to be getting a mortgage even though we can afford it. Are there any pros and cons at our age? Are we consider too young?

  • Does my landlord need to buy me a new air conditioner?

    When I moved in there was a wall air conditioner in the back bedroom. It is very noisy first off, and it really doesn't put out much cool air.

    When I moved in there was a wall air conditioner in the back bedroom. It is very noisy first off, and it really doesn't put out much cool air. I've asked the landlord about doing something about it several times, and so far I've been ignored. I rent month to month, and it was advertised for the house I'm renting. What can I do? I asked the landlord today if he's going to do something & he said no. His reason is because he claims I've made several small alterations inside the house without asking him first, so he doesn't feel like doing anything extra for me. How is this doing anything extra? Can he do this to me in retaliation? I live in San Pedro, CA, and he claims it doesn't get that hot here anyway. Yes it does some days & I live close to the ocean.
