My landlord just informed me via voicemail that he and his wife are divorcing. She is moving back to the area and plans on moving back into the house. They want me to vacate the premises. I have a signed lease until May 31, 2017. I have never been late on any payments of rent. I am not in violation of any clause in the lease. Do they have the legal right to ask me to vacate and terminate the lease early? This is in the state of FL.Thank you,Catherine

My spouse and I are going through a foreclosure right now.

My spouse and I are going through a foreclosure right now. The bank has already bought back the property at a auction and gave us our 3 day notice to vacate a couple weeks ago. To avoid an eviction I want to settle with bank and do cash for keys to voluntarily leave the house. My husband will not do that because he still thinks he can get something done and and talking to a different attorney. We have been at different sides of the fence for a year on this house. He wanted to drain us financially to try and save it and I wanted to short sell which he refused to do so a year ago. Now here we are at the end and he still will not let go. Do I have any rights to stop this and settle with the bank without him? I do not want an eviction on my record so I can still rent.We are already renting now. Because I moved out and I let him come with me because we have children. Now I want him to leave and get a divorce and he refuses to leave the house. What are my rights to get him out of the house and my rights on protecting myself on a possible eviction!?

My son and I are renters in good standing in Rehoboth Beach,

Hello! My son and I are renters in good standing in Rehoboth Beach, Delaware. We signed a new, 2 year lease back in October of 2015, with rent increases, so we thought we were locked in until 10/2017.Just received notice from my landlord that they intend to list and sell the property. There are no amendments or clauses in my lease saying that I have to vacate in any amount of time in the event of the sale. The only Additional Term and Condition reads as follows: "Landlord may chose (sic) to list and property & provide tenant 60 days informative notice."I cannot find any case law that states a new owner could evict me as long as I have a valid lease in good standing. But I'm not sure, and we are stressed out, to say the least! Again, we have always paid rent on time, agreed to an increase after a year, and have a valid lease agreement. What are my options? THANK YOU!

I am a two time veteran.I and my wife has both disabled.We

Hello,My name is***** am a two time veteran.I and my wife has both disabled.We are being forced to give up our house of 17 years for non payment of taxes.WE have finally stopped paying the mortgage payments which we never missed.WE are being closed on $5000.in county taxes.WE have moved out and going to shut off utilities on monday the 6th of June.MY problem is they are saying they want to start working on the property asap. THE only paperwork they have provided is a right to cure default from the the bank, nothing from the court can they force us to turn over the property without legal paper work because we moved out? We are in contact with them and will continue to be. Do i need to give it to them without legal paperwork? Should i tell them no?..... James Hickrod. Thanks
