A few weeks ago, I accidentally backed over a cat. She rushed it to the vet and expects me to pay for the vet bills (nearly $2000). She has knocked on my door every day wanting money. I have told her, I'm not paying a vet bill for a stray cat. Now she said she's revoking my parking privilege and will tow me if I park in the lot.

    I moved in 3 months ago, apt was quite and peaceful. Then my neighbors moved in. There are 6 adults and 2 kids in a 2 bd room. My leasing office says there is only suppose to be 2 adults and 1 child. They are constantly slamming doors and Idk it sounds like banging on the walls, the crazy part is they are below me on the 2nd level and I'm above them on the 3rd. I have never heard my neighbors beneath me! Its CONSTANT! Night and day! My coffee table is glass and it rattles from the constant banging. Now they are claiming the leasing office is harrassing them. Apt offered to let me out of my lease, which is nice but why do I have to spend all that money again to move when I am the one who respeces the rules of the of the lease? What recouse do I have? They cry harrassment by my leasing office and the leasing office ran scared and refuses to do anything but release me. I am not the only resident complaining about them. What can I do?

    Im finding it very hard to get a job at the moment. I have applied online and have gone into stores with my resume and cover letter and nothing back. I have had one interview in the last 8 months of applying. I dont have any experience in retail or customer service which I think is why I havent heard anything back but I have worked in some intense fast paced jobs Any tips of what I can do? Dont say volunteering because I have tried that and all the places said they only take disabled people or school kids for work experience. And if your wondering why I wanna work in retail, I have moved areas and I live really close to a shopping centre which would be ideal.

  • What do you do if you lose your credit card and access to your funds during the weekend?

    This hasnt happened to me yet. But what happens if you lose your debit card on a weekend when banks are closed and you cant go to the branch and get funds. Do you just have to starve till Monday if you usually eat out rather than buy groceries?

  • If the rental lease ends, do we have to continue to rent to tenants?

    Best answer: New York is a 30 day state. You do NOT have to renew a lease (unless you are a special-case New York City rent-control situation). If the lease expires December 31st, notify them IN WRITING before November 30th that you are not renewing the lease and that December 31st will be their last day. You can give them... show more
    Best answer: New York is a 30 day state. You do NOT have to renew a lease (unless you are a special-case New York City rent-control situation). If the lease expires December 31st, notify them IN WRITING before November 30th that you are not renewing the lease and that December 31st will be their last day. You can give them that notice now, but there's a chance they may stop paying completely. Then you evict them and do not drag your feet.


    Your mistake up until now is giving them longer than the grace period. With future tenants, DO NOT have a grace period. Rent is due on the first, you issue the 3-day Pay or Quit on the 2nd and you file for eviction on the 6th.

    Hey guys, so my girlfriend and I are both 26 years old, and we are expecting a baby soon but a few months earlier this year we both had to move back to our parent's house, because I was evicted from my apartment for non payment, but I tried paying the rent every month, but every month the rent would just get higher and higher to the point that I couldn't afford it anymore so I was evicted. Now that the baby is almost here, we are looking to get another apartment, but the problem is my eviction and my girlfriend has been out of work since early pregnancy due to a condition she has. With my eviction, I can't apply for apartments because that would be instant denial, and I've already tried landlords that aren't corporate landlords and they all said no as well. So my mom is supposed to apply and put her name on the lease for us with my name also being on there as an occupant, but my mom is just taking her time with the process and we are trying to move asap. Preferably mid to late November would be fine with us. Realistically I've been trying to get her to help us out for months but she drags on the process. What do you guys think???

I replied to it and the guy sent me an email saying "Can you text me so we can set up a date and time for an interview as well as discuss pay?" So I sent him a text but never heard back from him. I can understand why because I sent it at 11:52 California time. Btw, he emailed me back around 11:46. About 15 mins after I replied to the add. He sent a link to his Instagram which in my opinion is a joke and sent off red flags. His Instagram is Cayman Island Jobs. He's a young curly haired mixed looking guy. He has about 200+ followers. After looking at his page, I feel duped. Do you all think it's a real job or reality show? https://losangeles.craigslist.org/lac/tl...

    Best answer: Only if you are really good at it and not everyone is. Where I live half of the people who become licensed each year, quit within the first year because they can't make enough money to survive. The majority of the others typically scratch by and only a small percentage makes real money. Selling real estate... show more

    Selling real estate is far less about selling property, and far more about your ability to sell, and promote yourself on a constant basis.
