I rent an upper floor of a house, I still have 6 months on

I rent an upper floor of a house, I still have 6 months on my lease and I want to break it for a bigger place. The Landlord lives in TX.I found a potential tenant, his income is great, his finances impeccable, he was even interviewed by a business friend of the Landlord and was approved. Then the potential tenant received and reviewed the lease, he asked for a two minor modifications, like not shoveling the driveway and not paying for repairs, unless they were his fault, nothing else. He agreed to the rent, deposit, everything.Immediately, the Landlord rejected him and said he was no longer approved.What are my rights? I found someone to take over the lease. He's better financially than me. Can I break the lease and will a court make me honor it? The Landlord is just being unreasonable.

We live in Indiana and may be in a breach of contract

We live in Indiana and may be in a breach of contract situation(regarding an RV purchase). The RV is owned in a Montana LLC(to avoid taxes for an IN owner who does not "full-time") and the contract is written and signed with no mention of the LLC. Is the contract legally binding ? We were trying to find something to travel to hospitals as I am 45 and became ill and lost my job this year. We "rented" the RV from who we thought was a nice man, so that I could try it before we bought it, since I am in a wheelchair and it is hard to travel. It ended up having what smelled like fumes(diesel) and none of my family could sit in it for even 20 minutes. The owner offered to come down and help my husband look at it and when we said that we couldn't buy it because of the fumes, he is making us buy it because it was supposed to be back to him(which didn't happen because he was in our driveway). Thanks !

My husband was recently fired from his job and a couple

Hi my husband was recently fired from his job and a couple years ago had bought a truck from his boss's brother..we paid it off but never got any written proof because at the time we didn't think it mattered..since then we have asked for the title many times and kept getting different stories to why he couldn't give it to us. So after he was fired we said they had to give us title or buy it back and then got the run around again...we have tons of text messages saying they would pay us but the reason he won't give us title is because he keeps refinancing the truck with his bank...but yesterday they literally stole the truck from our driveway and said to take them to court....JA: What state is this in? And how old is the truck?Customer: IndianaJA: Have you talked to a lawyer yet?Customer: noJA: Anything else you think the lawyer should know?Customer: I don't think so....when we bought the truck there was a portion of the money we paid that was worked off

I bought a 18 wheeler truck owner finance from a lady almost

I bought a 18 wheeler truck owner finance from a lady almost 2 years ago. I drove it for a month paid My payment and it broke down I could not afford to fix it so I bought another truck and told the lady that I could not pay for hers because it had some pretty bad problems some of which it had when I bought it I just wasn't aware. She tells me to keep it and try to fix it and put a driver in it so I keep it I decide not to fix it. She decides she wants it back but she can't afford to come get it and I couldn't afford to have it hauled to her it does not run. Plus it is not tagged or insured. At one point I even tried to sell it for her but it didn't work out I even sold a part off of it for her I thought she would use the money to come get it but she didn't now 18 months after I first told her I couldn't pay for it she is demanding I bring it and the title back or pay her or she is taking me to court. Our contract was very simple it said that after 60 days past due she got the truck back. It has been in my driveway for 18 months I want it gone. My question is what are my options can I get rid of the truck and get her to leave me alone is impound an option. The title is in my name she has a lien I'm in Oklahoma

It appears we are being singled-out by individuals

It appears we are being singled-out by individuals (yard-Nazis?) for harassment by the city. They claim in a citation that there is a grass/weed violation. We do not have grass in the front yard but there are a variety of plants to make the property as maintenance-free as possible. This has been an ongoing problem for more than a year. However, the city ignores the other properties that actually do have a weed problem.JA: Because laws vary from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?Customer: OhioJA: Have you talked to a lawyer yet?Customer: Yes, but as a disabled person on disability, the cost of a lawyer is prohibited.JA: What advice did they give you?Customer: Never got back.JA: Anything else you think the lawyer should know?Customer: Not that I can think of.

I recently entered into a verbal agreement with a person who

I recently entered into a verbal agreement with a person who is in the business of "picking" items that they encounter through various methods with the intent to sell the items via auction, antique store, flee markets, etc. for a profit. Me, as the client was looking for someone to remove all the personal property in my home and outdoor areas. I requested this service to enable me to list my property for sale. After I packed and put aside the items I intended to keep, everything left in the house, basement, greenhouse, sunroom and in the yard, were to be removed from the premise, Items removed had been accumulated from over 40 yrs of living in my home. Items removed were furniture, bedroom sets, sofas, tables (some antique furniture) antique dining room set and antique buffet, vintage doll collection from the 1900's - 2000, lamps, vintage collectables, a $7000 mink coat, home décor, everyday house hold items, 11 hp Bolens lawn tractor, etc. The house is over 2000 sq. ft. + the basement, greenhouse and yard. It was just about everything I owned from 40 years of my life. He took every right down to spare light bulbs and toilet paper! He had a dumpster put on my driveway for trash. He told me this was the first time he took on a job to clear an entire estate. He had no idea what his costs would be, He had a friend walk through the house with him and between the 2 of them the estimated he could sell all the items for $3200-$3500. This was just a guess. I believe he will make much more than that. We discussed that after the house was empty we would agree on a final dollar amount that would work for both of us to be paid to me. I said that I wanted at least $700. I truly thought I should get more than $700 because I believe he will sell my things for a lot more. I backed down to $500 hoping the lesser amount might help with his expenses. He threw together a "proposal". There was no mention of money. It was not a contract and neither of us signed it. After the house was empty , he sent a copy of his proposal along with how may hours it took, the cost of additional people $20/hr ( the crew was members of his family, who were putting things in their cars to take home with them. I can't believe he actually paid them by the hour) His dollar amount for his expenses were not itemized with any kind of proof. He estimated that the sales would most likely be less than $3500. Again, a guess as he has not sold anything. He told me he was only going to end up with $900 profit and therefore he was not going to give me any money. $0 Nothing!! I feel like I've been scammed. He stole everything I owned. I realize now that there should have been a contract. I trusted him to be an honest person. I feel so stupid. Hind sight is 20/20. But we had a verbal agreement that we would make this work for both of us as neither one of us had ever done this before. He probably lied about that too. I am a 65 yr old single woman with a fixed oncome. I need the money to enable me to move out of state to be with my family. Do I have any legal recourse to get any money from him?

My ex and I own a home in Mansfield Ohio that our daughter

My ex and I own a home in Mansfield Ohio that our daughter lived in for several years without paying rent. She moved out about 5-6 months ago with most of her stuff. I spoke to her last week telling her to get the rest out because we need to sell the house per our divorce court order. It's still there. Can we legally move the rest out and take it to her new residence and put it in her drive without her calling the police on us?

I had my driveway redone, and it is no better than the old one. It has been 3 months, and the guys haven't come back to fix it as promised. They ignore my calls. I feel the next step is either finding an attorney, or filing a claim in court, but I have no idea what to do.
