Our lease expired in May. The last correspondence from the landlord was that we could continue to live there or move out. He indicated that the lease was null and void. We have not paid rent since March since he said he was unable to receive payments anymore.
Very well done. Thank you. I just wanted to know if someone would come knocking on the door and give us 24 hours or 3 days or something. Actually, I was pretty sure they couldn't do that, but my wife was VERY concerned. I care very much about her peace of mind and this helped greatly!
Can I request you to answer another question? I asked the question but was assigned to a different attorney. I prefer you.
This is regarding the "landlord has declared bankruptcy" situation. Over the weekend, our plumbing backed up. I tried opening the vent above the drains which had worked before. This time, however, I think that the problem is truly a blockage, perhaps roots, between our house and the street. I called the plumber with whom we had worked in the past at this residence. They will not do any work without the approval of the owner. Conceptually, I understand this, but what do I do?
