Hi. First my email to Andy arguing powerfully for supervisors at $200 to $300 an hour for 2-3 hours a week, more in the beginning, is almost done. The wonderful Dr. Loretta is interested in being one, and I thought to send her the email for her to crit for clarity, length, whatever. I am prepared to highly recommend you and if you still are interested, I will highly recommend you. The two senior customer service people I spoke with totally agreed with my many strong arguments. Dr. L said I could
Country relating to Question: United States
my question is that I want to move out of my new place. My roommate greatly lied, his dog attacks mine and there is a very nasty person here that I didn't know about. I paid him security. If I give him one months notice (standard) tomorrow morning and use the security for the rent, is there any way he can harass me (I doubt he will) and if so do I have recourse?

btw. she said I could send her an email at XXXXX@XXXXXX.XXX and they will forward it to her. I sent her one of my articles as a test
I am happy to hear from you – I thought perhaps I had offended you since you requested two refunds
the e-mail was redacted
I certainly did not intentionally do it
Yes I am interested and I appreciate your recommendation
If I were unhappy, I would say it
The money is not important – I was just confused why it would occur. I also thought if you weren't happy you would say so
there still are alot of bugs in the "threads(?)
yes – very frustrating
I am reading your question now
especially where we have worked other communication into them
did you sign a lease with your new roommate or with the landlord
can I also email the draft of the letter for your constructive criticism. It has to be long and obviously is tricky and unprecedented
but the arguments are powerful and clear. And some are no brainers (i.e. the inevitability of big law suits and/or media exposes as Pearl grows and they keep very explosive areas like mental health and parenting where things like suicide, psychotic episodes, unsafe sex, hard drug use are possibilities.
No. that is why I have to move. I would have to sign a lease in a month for a year
when the present awful roommates move out.
Since you have not signed a lease you are on a month-to-month basis
Therefore you may give one month's notice of termination
I found about this on a big roommate site
unless the landlord/roommate consents, you can not apply your security to the rent
30 days notice and security for last months rent are standard. I doubt he would risk being barred from all the roommate sites
and he works 12 hour days and is very passive and unhappy. I unfortunately was under duress, as you well know, so I couldn't take as much time as I would have liked to get to know him better. And he flatly lied on key requests of mine - like our dogs play and hang out together
Mike - check your records to make sure you were credited $56. Here are the links: http://www.justanswer.com/law/6o2bd-hi-just-when-thought-safe-go-water.html and http://www.justanswer.com/law/6o2iz-so-approach-viable-calling-lawyer-back-aaying.html
The nice feature about a month to month tenancy is that you do not need a reason to give notice to move
it is only important that you give 30 days written notice
Thank you. And on the very very remote chance he would change the locks, I could call the police?
the police will assist you in regaining entry
and your roommate would be subject to criminal and civil liability
are you still there?
While better than weblaw, I dont love fivestarlaw. Too objectified (you are a rating, not an outstanding lawyer), too impersonal. Expertlaw to me is much better, and I'll bet we can think of others.
I like that – however the bar associations do not like attorneys calling themselves "experts". I am open to other names. I changed my language after your last suggestion
You are welcome. it is an improvement and not bad. No need to rush it. I enjoy things like this. I suggest looking at as many others as possible for ideas as springboards. The other lawyer I used when you were not available and as a double check on some of those critical issues was Lucy, esq. (she always agreed with you I'm glad to say) I kind of like it- a somewhat warm, personal touch. But I think it is a little too informal and can be improved on. Now, importantly due to your help, I am back sane and often brilliant (I am 68 and hundreds of people have contributed to that), so I'll think about it walking on the street, in the subway, etc.
How about "caringattorney?" I like attorney much better than lawyer.
I will think about that. Thank you Mike – have a nice day
ok. let me give you the rating. send me any not accepted answers to legal questions and I will accept them.
