• Fair split of rent for a small studio apartment?

    Hello, what would in your opinion be a fair split of rent for a studio apartment, assuming everything is shared equally (room size, utilities, etc.)? The only thing is, this roommate would be staying for five nights per week and going back home on the weekends. I don't think 50/50 would be fair as I would... show more

The only thing is, this roommate would be staying for five nights per week and going back home on the weekends. I don't think 50/50 would be fair as I would obviously stay there all week.

  • How can I cut my roommates power?

    So she’s a ***** and refuses to pay me her utilities. I changed the internet password and she’s flipping her ****. But she always leaves all the power on. So how can I shut the power off on her when we’re gone?

  • Put in offer in house.. now waiting! How long to wait?

    Myself and my partner viewed a house on Saturday, and I fell in love. House up for 265,000. We put in an offer the following Monday for 252,500. Declined straight away. We then put in 258,000. It was declined and the estate agent said they wanted closer to the 260,000 mark. We then put up our offer to 259,000 on... show more
    Myself and my partner viewed a house on Saturday, and I fell in love. House up for 265,000. We put in an offer the following Monday for 252,500. Declined straight away. We then put in 258,000. It was declined and the estate agent said they wanted closer to the 260,000 mark. We then put up our offer to 259,000 on tuesday. The owners of the house are selling as they used to rent it out but now want to sell. The owners are on a cruise until Wednesday and they have not accepted our offer yet. The estate agent has told them they should accept our offer as it is a good offer, and we are both chain free. Do you think they are waiting until they are back from their holiday? Is that normal practice? We are keeping quiet and not bugging the estate agent so as to not look too keen. Any advice appreciated!

  • My neighbors are hell bent on driving me back to the nuthouse. Can I sue, or file a Civil Rights case?

    I am very intelligent and they should be thankful to me for teaching them, yet they are harassing me at night with running water and flushing the toilet.

  • Writing to a landlord?

    So last month the state did an inspection on our apartment (they did all apartments in the building). Yesterday we got a letter from our landlord saying that we could not use the basement as a bedroom anymore and either have to stop using it as a bedroom or move out. We have decided to move out but I’m not sure... show more

Yesterday we got a letter from our landlord saying that we could not use the basement as a bedroom anymore and either have to stop using it as a bedroom or move out. We have decided to move out but I’m not sure what I should put in my response. Also, just to be clear, its a finished basement and we did inform her that we were planning on using it as a bedroom when we moved in.

I will be asking the agent but right now it's the weekend and they are closed. So I am just wondering how it normally works with a half house.

    Only me and my roommate would be living in this apartment, and although she is only one person she is insisting on using the dishwasher machine for her a few dishes that she would be using daily. Our dishwasher needs a small repair, but aside from that, even i myself do not use the dishwashing machine as every cycle on the machine uses lots of power and electricity, and that is while I can easily wash a few dishes that I have myself with hand normally in the sink. Am I obliged to allow my new roommate use the washing machine? (p.s. she is not in contract with my landlord but is in contract with me, so as I am allowed to sublet, she is subleting one of the rooms in this 2 bedroom apartment that I have rented, and I am the only one on the contract with my landlord, and I also live in the other room)

  • No termites found at home, but buyer wants to knock down a wall to make sure there's no damage behind the wall....?

The buyer wants us to allow him to get into the wall and see if there is any damage. Should that be on him financially? What if he makes the hole, there is no damage and then wants us to repair the hole? This could open a whole new can of worms for us as sellers. We would have to disclose the termite damage should this guy walk to the next buyer when we already were under a previous contract where the lady just wanted a clearance letter. Now we have that and no termites, but still this guy wants to keep pressing. Our realtor told us we could be opening a can of worms and now need to just decide if we want to deal with all of this.

    For the past 4 months I haven't been able to pay rent. My landlord has every right to evict us. I have promised to pay the unpaid rent and all other costs after vacating. We received the 'pay or quit' notice back around November 28th. Since December til now he was charging us $50 for everyday we are living there. the sheriffs never came with an eviction notice to my door so how could he do that? Also, now since we have moved out he is constantly sending us messages to hurry up and come back to finish cleaning the house. Since he is already adding the fees should we go back to clean? Also, I read somewhere that it is the landlords responsibility to keep the home in a living condition. I must say all 5 years we've lived there the AC does not do justice. We had a couple of people come check out the place and they all have told us the same thing 'the unit is too small for the house'. 2nd year since we've lived there there was a leak in the hallway. I notified the landlord and he told me he was sending someone to look at it. The person never showed up. My daughter slipped twice and unfortunately, we didn't really take her to the ER as nothing major happened. If he takes us to court and add more fees can we argue with this? What can we do? If he takes

  • How old do you have to be to rent a house?

    Best answer: If your parents, or any other adult, sign the contract, then they are renting. They legally owe all money. They legally are responsible for damages and whatever else might happen there. This is a common situation when young kids go away to college and need an off-campus place to stay. If you don't pay rent,... show more
    Best answer: If your parents, or any other adult, sign the contract, then they are renting. They legally owe all money. They legally are responsible for damages and whatever else might happen there. This is a common situation when young kids go away to college and need an off-campus place to stay. If you don't pay rent, your parents are legally responsible. If you trash the place, your parents are legally responsible.

    Bottom line, your parents are renting. You may be given permission to live there. You may pay the rent (either directly to the landlord or through your parents.) But your parents are the legal renters.

She gave me two weeks for me to be out because I was waiting on a application to be approve for another apartment. My new apartment then called me and asked can I get my past rental history from my old complex and I agreed. Soon after I realized I got a eviction when they asked for my rental history. They didn’t even serve me with it until that day.

    It’s all going so fast and feel like I don’t have time to fix some stuff around the house. Do they go in garage also? This is so nerve wrecking.
