• Grandmother dies with no will, daughter gets house and isn't paying the mortgage, can the granddaughter take her to court for the house?

    My grandma died last year and did not have a will. My mom got her house because of that. She is now 4 months behind on the mortgage, she has no income coming in at all.

    My grandma died last year and did not have a will. My mom got her house because of that. She is now 4 months behind on the mortgage, she has no income coming in at all. This house has been in our family for 30 years now and I really don't want to lose it. I have tried asking her if I can move in and take over the mortgage and she refuses. Before she moved in she was homeless and on drugs. I feel like she is just trying to stay there until they foreclose it. Is there anything I can do to get the house from her? I have a stable job and good income coming in. Can I take her to court for it? Or am I out of luck?

  • How do I go by getting out of an early lease agreement?

    I am 7 months pregnant. I just moved into an apartment now, a little over 2 weeks ago. I didn’t get a chance to view the apartment because I felt I was at a dead end; I had no where else to go.

    I am 7 months pregnant. I just moved into an apartment now, a little over 2 weeks ago. I didn’t get a chance to view the apartment because I felt I was at a dead end; I had no where else to go. My aunt gave me until the end of March (March 30) to leave, regardless. My local family homes where all booked up. So I signed a lease to stay in this apartment. However, when I got there, the apartment was not clean, not even a little. There are no locks on the windows, there’s water damage in the bathroom, wood chippings about 1/3 up the wall, there are small holes here and there, the doors are peeling, some parts of the walls is like someone may have punched them. Note: Maintenance painted over all of this. There’s a lot of floor damage, there is a big gas heater sitting in my living room, and there was black stuff in my air conditioner. The place smell of stale air, like it’s old. I used to hear noises when I moved in. I pray every night nothing happens. I feel as if this place is not secure enough nor sanitary enough for me or my soon to be newborn. I would like to get out of my lease immediately.

    I’ve been in a new apartment for less than 30 days and I came home from work today to a letter in my door. The letter was signed by the manager saying I had a lease violation for having an unauthorized occupant. I had a visitor over and I stepped out. While I was out a maintenance person randomly “popped up” at my door claiming they needed the serial number off of my fire extinguisher. I’ve never heard of this and no one called me in advance or anything to tell me maintenance was coming over. I think they came to try to snoop around/steal. My guest wouldn’t let them in (since I wasn’t home and he didn’t know who they were) but he did give them the fire extinguisher so they could get the number they claimed they needed and today I get a notice of lease violation saying I had an unauthorized occupanct and they wouldn’t allow maintenance in. I’ve been renting for 12 years never received a lease violation and am probably one of the best tenants out here. Never cause any problems and in my 12 years I think ONCE I paid my rent a day late. I’m super frustrated and looking for advice on how to handle this. I’ve never dealt with something like this, don’t want a bad rental record or get evicted for having a guest and I am ready to move out already because I’m so frustrated. What do you suggest I do??? I had read reviews online saying the management was nosey but didn’t realize it would be like this.

    I am currently renting a house. A few days ago I had my landlord hire someone to fix my a/c. It wasn’t blowing cool air. He claims they charged him $600 to add Freon. Today he called me yelling at me saying that the a/c man told him the house is completely destroyed, filthy, etc. After the yelling he goes to tell me he’s going to charge me the a/c bill on my next rent payment. Can he do that? I pay $2100. I also payed him first, last and a $2500 security deposit. Nothing in the house is broken. I have children so what the a/c guy saw was messy walls. Which is bad, but I always hire a professional to repaint. Very sorry for the length of my question, but can he charge me just like that? Is there anything else I should know? Also the house will be returned the same shape I received it, legally what are my options in dealing with my verbally abusive and rude landlord?(referring to him messing with my money) Thank you so much in advance!

Tenants are still living there so they couldn’t show me the apartment until I move in on May 1st and give 1st month rent. Anyways, I called today (2 days later) and told them I’m sorry for the inconvenience but I changed my mind. Mind you... they still have tenants living in the unit. The landlord told me he can’t give me my deposit back until he finds another person to rent may 1st or after may 1st if he hasn’t found anyone, and I have to pay for whatever days after may 1st if no one has rented.

    So I want a cat right? It was discussed at time of signing that pets are on a case by case basis, no details were discussed (because I wasn’t ready for one anyways) but they said they didn’t see it being a problem. A few weeks ago I asked my landlord like hey what do you want from me. He told me $100 non refundable deposit for carpet cleaning, cool that s fair. I asked him if there would be any additional monthly fees. No response. Today I asked- other than the $100 is there anything you want me to do before getting a pet? Still no response. How long would you wait to say F it and send the check and go buy a cat? *I’m trying to be a good tenant and get my ducks in a row- and most adoption places in my area require a written statement from your landlord if you rent anyways- but this isn’t the first time he’s ignored me trying to contact him* So I guess the other question is how long would you wait to contact him for a THIRD time about what you need to do.

    I lived in my apartment since June 2012. By 2016 management changed hands six times. In March of every year I renew my lease. I've done this since I moved in but in 2016 I renewed my lease in November. Last August I decided not to renew my lease for 2018 due to an unruly neighbor that has been living over me since November 2017. I recorded how loud they have been and put it to DVD and sent that along with a typed and signed letter stating why I won't renew. Long story short, yesterday the home ownership program I've been working with told me the management office won't send them my rental registry because I need to fill out a form saying I'll be moving out within 60 days. So I went to the office to get the information and they told me the same. I told them I'm not signing anything until I know for sure that I'll be moving. That puts me at risk. Sometime a little after I came from the office there was a letter on my door stating I had 10 days to renew my lease. I'm not renewing my lease. Can the office do anything to me if I don't renew? They told me I had 60 days from my renewal date to let them know I'll be leaving. My time was up the beginning of this month but I haven't let them know yet.

    In the city we live in, it is a violation to open feed animals. Every single day, she was dumping cat food on the sidewalk and there are at least 20 feral cats and now rats living in the yard. I compained to the city and she got a notice of violation. 2 months later, I went out of town and asked a friend to feed my cat (who lives indoors). Now she's telling me she wants me out for illegally subletting. I'm not subletting, he was just feeding my cat. He doesn't stay. We argued and she made it clear that she hates me for complaining to the city instead of talking to her. But, I did talk to her about it before I complained. What should I do? Should I just ignore her until she moves to evict me? She is also telling me that the rats are my fault and I'll have to pay for her to get an exterminator.

    I am trying to apply for an apartment here in Fort Wayne, Indiana that is subsidized through HUD. They said everything is fine with the application, but they need three years worth of past rental history references from landlords, and one of my landlords is unresponsive. I have tried absolutely everything in my power to find my past landlord, I even sent a letter from Section-8 saying that I was a tenant at that location, but the complex sent me a letter in the mail saying they denied my application because of "a bad landlord reference". It wasn't bad, there was none! I have excellent references from my current landlord and landlord before this, but the one from two years ago has completely disappeared off the face of the planet. While searching his name on the internet, I also found court documents from someone trying to sue him. It said in the documents that even the police can't track him down to come to court. As for the current owners of that apartment complex, I can't track them down either because they have absolutely no information about themselves online. Also, the apartment complex was in California, so I can't just easily drive 2,000 miles to the complex myself and find somebody to talk to. What can I do about this? I don't see how this is my fault that he is unresponsive.
