  • Will the passage of time make it easier for me to rent an apartment?

    I had a very difficult time finding an apartment rental because there was a collection fee of under $300 on my credit report by an apartment management company for vindictive reasons.

  • Negligent land survey for new purchased property, do I take legal action?

    Hello, I just recently bought 10 acres in between two neighbors. Both neighbors have asphalt driveways on the sides of my property (it is like a T-shape, it is very thin in the front and the whole back is the majority of the property).

    Hello, I just recently bought 10 acres in between two neighbors. Both neighbors have asphalt driveways on the sides of my property (it is like a T-shape, it is very thin in the front and the whole back is the majority of the property). In the original land survey before I bought the property, it shows that the surveyor surveyed the land twice which gave the other two properties the driveways. My issue is that I got another land surveyor to come out and survey the land, and turns out that the other surveyor was wrong and that one of the driveways (that is connected to someone's house and I mean SUPER close to their house) is actually included in my property even after two surveys. I talked with the previous owner of the property and he said that he instructed him to include the driveway in the property to the left of my property with the house (he owned this land and the house/driveway, but they only wanted 1/2 an acre without the other 10). He doesn't seem knowledgeable about the land surveys and seemed caught off-guard. This has been quite the issue now with my neighbor since its now a dispute. So my question is who is at fault? The owner, land surveyor, title company or realtor? Or all of them? I live in Texas also if that changes anything. Thanks!

  • How can we break our apartment lease without paying serious cash?

    Best answer: Your girlfriend and her girlfriend are listed on the lease. You and the other roommate are not on the lease. If this is the case, your girlfriend and her girlfriend have breached the lease agreement and place themselves in a position of being given a notice to get rid of the two illegal tenants or be evicted.

    Best answer: Your girlfriend and her girlfriend are listed on the lease.

    You and the other roommate are not on the lease. If this is the case, your girlfriend and her girlfriend have breached the lease agreement and place themselves in a position of being given a notice to get rid of the two illegal tenants or be evicted.

    You have introduced a cat into the rental unit which apparently is illegal, as you cleanup any evidence of the cat whenever you are inspected. This is another reason for your landlord to issue you a notice to rid the rental unit of the cat or be evicted..

    The majority of the facts you mention in your statement are not legal reasons you are able to breach your lease without a financial penalty.

    If you have items that are broken in your rental unit in need of repair, you should report these broken items to your landlord or property manager..

    Your roommate is not legally able to sign you off the lease agreement. Your landlord or property manager would be the key person as to if your lease agreement would be altered. An alternation of the lease would not benefit your landlord or property manager. Your property manager or landlord would not be inclined to amend the lease and remove your girlfriend from the lease agreement.

    You are having internal problems with a person that is not on the lease agreement. This is not a problem of your landlord or property manager.

    You may break your lease, however, it would cost you a financial penalty.

    I hope this has been of some benefit to you, good luck.

    I'm wondering to hear other people's perspectives on this. I have a four-month work contract at a big tech company and need to get short-term housing in an expensive area. I can rent a room from a lady for $800 per month (including all utilities). The lady has a husband and a toddler but they would live on the other side of the house. My second option is to get a studio for $1300 per month (including utilities). I would need to buy a mattress, renter's insurance, etc.. but it would be in a nice apartment and I wouldn't need to worry about guests when my husband or friends come to visit me. For a four month period of time, an extra $500+ per month is a lot of money, but it might be worth the peace and freedom. I'll be making pretty good income so it's more a question of how much the saving capacity is worth it. Thoughts?

  • Is moving in to a car a great way to save for a house?

    Living in my car would save me $1500 a month in rent & utilities. $25,000 is what I need for a down-payment on a house which means I'd live in my car for 17 months. So is this a good idea to save for a house?

    Due to 2 pulmonary embolisms I am moving out of my apartment early and moving in with a friend, i found out my landlord was showing my apartment without my knowledge, they have not been giving me a 24 hour notice either. Both these things are illegal for landlords to do, but I was not planning on seeking any legal advice. I set up a security camera so I can watch the viewings, there was one today and everything was fine, but then my landlord entered my apartment after they people who were viewing left, and he kicked my cat pretty hard on the way out. I have video evidence of this. He has also been claiming that my cat has been stinking up the apartment, including the whole building which is completely false. I have 3 different people to testify that my apartment does not in fact smell in the slightest, he keeps claiming that it does (I’m thinking he’s doing this to try and keep my damage deposit) i am moving out March 1st and he is also trying to make me pay March rent. I am very upset with all that is going on and I just want to know what kind of action I should take.

  • If an apartment complex or private landlord has a no gun policy, it it actually laughably unenforceable?

    All States have some degree of tenent's rights.

    All States have some degree of tenent's rights. In my State a landlord or building manager must provide 24 hours notice, in writing, to enter the dwelling without permission, unless there is an emergency. Landlords are also prohibited in my State, and I suspect in others as well, from going through a tenents personal property. In other words, if a landlord requires an annual inspection of the dwelling, the landlord can open the closet door or look under the bathroom cabinet as it is part of his property, but he cannot open any bags or boxes within, or open a drawer of a dresser owned by the tenent. What I'm getting at here is the only way a landlord or building manager can catch a tenent violating such a rule would be to enter the dwelling without notice and go through the tenents personal belongings. Which means the landlord cannot take action against the tenent without revealing that they themselves broke the law, and opening themselves up to fines and potentially lawsuits themselves. If a rental has such a rule, should a gun owning prospective tenent sweat it?

    So I recently moved out of an apartment because of a bad environment. When I first moved in I was told I had to pay 1000 dollars for a security deposit, now that I have moved out I found out my Roomate had me pay him 1000 dollars to a security deposit that was already paid. I am trying to get it back but he says he will not give me all of my money back because a friend of mine had stayed a while and helped me pay rent. My Roomate is demanding extra rent because he doesn’t think it’s fair that he helped me pay rent and not him. He is demanding this money from me and I don’t know what to do or what are the steps to take. He has almost been in legal trouble before for keeping an ex roommates stuff and demanding rent in exchange for his stuff even though he did not stay at the house. He is making up number and saying I have to pay him 400 dollars or he will keep my money. What can I do?

    I moved into my apartment Aug 1, 2017 and have already experienced two water leaks in my bedroom.the apt manager stated she was not going to fix it during the rainy season because of its still wet which is understandable. The first two times they replaced my carpet and padding, but whats the point if everytime ut rains my apt floods? So the contractor came to do an inspection and said the foundation is bad and the only way to fix it is if the apt manager moves everybdy out and start rebuilding. it's not just my apt, its most apts on the bottom floor. So i have to put up with the soaking wet carpet in both rooms each and every time it rains inconveniencing me for days with smells due to wet carpet. I have a 2 bdrm and both room flooded the whole bdrm carpet floors as well as the closet. My husband and i are forced to sleep in the living room and the smell in both rooms are horrible. What do i do? P.S. Again, this is not just my apt. Alot of tenants tht lives on the first floor are complaining.

    So I have a joint account with my partner. He has an online account but I do not. He is signed up for online statements but obviously I am not as a don’t have an account and the online one is just his not joint. When I changed out account type they said they should of been sending me statements but hadn’t been and they would start doing it now. My question is if they hadn’t been sending me any statements at all for those years are the bank charges for account fees and overdrafts etc fair? Or should I try and reclaim them? If so is there a law or something I should be referencing? Thanks in advance for any help.
