I had to replace the gas furnace in the house that I rent. The tenants had to stay in a hotel for one week until this could be completed. The hotel bill was $560 which I agreed to pay. They now are asking for the weeks rent which is $800 to be deducted from the next months rent. Am I legally obligated to pay the hotel bill and the $800 for the weeks rent?
JA: Because real estate law varies from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?
Customer: The house is in Vienna, Virginia zip, 22182.
JA: Has anything been filed or reported?
Customer: Yes, they filed a complaint with Fairfax County. The house is in the hands of a real estate company. They will be answering the complaint. They signed a contract
that states that it is illegal to run a business from my house, But they do have an online business of clothing.
JA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?
Customer: I realize their online business has nothing to do with the question that I'm asking. They must be 1000 women's dresses, boxes etc. in The basement.
