    My mom passed and her home estate is in my name, I have tenants in the home but want them to take over the mortgage in so many days or we have to sell - Is there a legal letter or terminology that gives them so much time to transfer the mortgage into their name without a sale of the home?

    I broke Texas lease due to mold 6 months ago.?

    The were aware and had a guy clean it out. It caused me serious health issues, as it was reoccurring mold. I couldn't take it anymore. I also listed the reason in my 60 day notice. I received a letter last week from debt collector for lease termination fees.  When I call a debt lawyer, they tell me I need a real estate lawyer. I called real estate lawyer and they say they don't handle mold cases. It's not on my credit report yet. What are my options?

    Apartment rent vs income?

    Let's say someone has a salary of $70,000 but after paying taxes, they take home $54,000 (New Jersey). I've heard apartments typically want the rent to be no more than a third of your income. Would apartments consider a third of your income to be based on the $70,000 or the $54,000?

    Can Someone Explain The Covid Tenant-Landlord Law?

    I know there’s something about landlords cannot evict tenants that cannot pay rent due to COVID, but does that mean he can still charge me $50.00 for every day that I don’t pay?

    I don’t know how any of this works, my schedule has a layout where I can’t work too often so there’s less risk of COVID or something.  I work extra shifts that I’m allowed to be able to pay my rent but one day I couldn’t find the landlord and he only takes cash, and at 8am the next day I woke up and gave him the money and explained the situation and he still added the $50.00 late fee for next month. Does the law only apply to tenants that aren’t working or to everyone? I just don’t know how it works if someone can explain. 

    Also my lease is month to month if that’s important.

    My mom bought a house in full and managed to put it under my name?

    260k house. It’s 8,000 per year property taxes. I don’t own my own house yet and don’t know if my job is stable. She’s not asking me to pay for it but I’m worried that if something happens that I’ll have to pay for it. Also, keeps mentioning how she wishes own children would live with her.

    Can a tenant sue the landlord for harassment and win if he banged daily on the door several times a day demanding overdue rent payment?

    This was going on for over a month and is still going on. The tenant can't pay as they have no job and the social security payment is not enough.

    Do we buy a starter place or a bigger long term home in this market? ?

    My boyfriend and I have been looking for a home for the past year. This is a relationship that will definitely soon lead to marriage by the way. I am personally conflicted on if we should get a starter or a long term place. We’re both first time home buyers and know what we want in a home. Though this market is crazy and I’m super torn. We’ve put in offers multiple times and haven’t gotten a home. We are fully qualified and flexible on moving/closing. 

    We have money for 20% down with a budget in the mid 300s. Do we go for a smaller place we can grow into (good school/area) or a larger long term place (good schools/area as well? I’m afraid of buying a smaller home and not being able to sell it later for the inflated prices we have today. Or buy a larger place and technically heat and cool a place that only 2 people will live in for 3-4 years before we would have kids etc. Any advice welcome thank you!

    Why do landlords always try to garnish their old tenants wages when they know the person is struggling?

    What's the point when you already know that the person is struggling financially and that's why the got behind on rent? Evidently they can't afford to pay you so why not let it go?

    Who is responsible for flooring of a business rental after a flood?

    I rent a business office. I paid to have vinyl flooring installed when I moved in last year. Due to the recent sub-zero temps, pipes burst in the building and flooded my business. My floors are damaged and need to be removed and redone. The landlord is now charging me to replace the flooring. My lease only states I am responsible for damage caused by me, but it wasn't my fault. My landlord also states since I installed the floor, I am responsible for covering the cost to replace it. My landlord waited two months before sending someone out to inspect the damage and there is severe mold growing on the walls and under the floors.
