Do I have any options like be evicted to buy time.I'm 62

Do I have any options like be evicted to buy time.I'm 62 yrs. old and retired from the State of Ohio. I've been a tenant at 656 N. High St. Apt. 3c for 20 yrs.I received a letter from the property owner stating my 30 day lease was up at the end of Sept. Before my letter, my neighbor had just moved out. He said his lease was up and he wasn't renewing. He wanted to go month-to-month for a few months but they said no. So I just assumed that's what they were telling me too, in the letter. I thought I would just have to go in and sign a new years lease. I had been going month-to-month for the last 19 yrs. I pay my rent on time, I've tried to always let the property owner know when I thought there was a problem on his property.1). The bicycles attached to the stairway which people could trip and fall. He would have had quite a lawsuit there.2). The lady driving in, doing her laundry, and driving out.3). And laundry being stolen from the laundry room, mine specifically!!! I thought maybe he could alert the other tenants via email. But I or anyone else ever heard anymore about it.Most landlords would appreciate their tenants taking interest in their property... I would think. Anyway, the letter said to contact His attorney w/any questions. I did that the next week but he was out of the office for the next several weeks so I left a message.I called the property owner the next Saturday because I hadn't heard anything back yet. He said he couldn't talk about this and I would have to contact His attorney. This worried me because I've always been able to call him about anything.After about 3weeks I went back to the Attorneys office, he wasn't in but he did call me back this time. I had to be out of the apt. I just couldn't believe it.I never thought at 62 I would be moving again. My life plan was to stay another 10 yrs. and then move back to Ky. My family are all buried there.I just can't understand why their doing this to me.The bot***** *****ne for me is, I just can't be out of here in this short time. I'm exhausted. I have spent the last couple weeks looking but can't find anything in my location and price range. I was not financially set up to move.I would now like to stay till spring if I could so I have time to make some life decisions... Or till the end of the year or a month....whatever.These are good people. I just can't figure out why they are

I have rental property in Pittsburgh, PA. On August 1, 2016

I have rental property in Pittsburgh, PA. On August 1, 2016 a tenant called and left me a message that I could pick up her rent for August. Due to illness, I was not able to get her check. Then on August 9 I received a call from someone for a reference for this individual and was surprised to learn she was looking for another apartment. Shortly thereafter, (within a half hour after giving her a good reference), I received a call from the tenant, stating that she was moving out by the end of the month. She stated she had called me back on August 1st to tell me she was moving, but she never left a message. I told her that she had to give me 30 days notice. Her year lease was up in June and recently she had told me she would sign another year lease. Since I had not given her one, she was month to month. Since, she had found another apartment that she wanted to move in to, she was not agreeable to giving me 30 days notice. The following week, I did receive a certified letter, mailed August 16, that she was giving notice. My question is Before returning her Security Deposit, can I subtract for rent since she did not give 30 days notice??

I live in Davie, FL., And am a tenant with 3 rescued dogs.i

Hi,I live in Davie, FL., And am a tenant with 3 rescued dogs.i was put in the unfortunate situation of having to relocate here from OK suddenly due to being laid off from a spinal surgery with spinal damage. A friend of mine said a co worker of hers was a landlord looking for a tenant in a very sought after unit. Having no time to fly back and forth, I paid first, last and security and moved in. The landlord said due to the FLL airport all windows and doors would be being replaced for her and that the contractors did his work in a "couple of days" with minimal disruption. I discovered many issues including both doors had broken locks, and several windows were broken to which the landlord replied "we are not spending a penny fixing anything since they will be replaced." I had to duct tape windows shut, my dogs actually got out of the house while I was not home because of the broken doors, the yard was not fully fenced as stated, and the landlord refused to fix any of the locks on the doors leaving me with a rental unit which could easily be broken into since may. I received a letter recently telling me the contractors would be starting construction on this duplex 10/10/2016, and work would be done from 8-5 M-F for 2 weeks with subsequent visits thereafter which means the AC could not be on and workers coming in and out all day every day for the duration.When I expressed concern for the duration of this project, the landlord said said "well, we told you, so take a vacation for these 2 weeks." I told her I could not afford a vacation or to payout of pocket to rent something else. The letter said I could have a sacred room with which to stay during this time with my dogs and figured I could close the rest of the AC ducts except my bedroom so my dogs could have AC and relief from the 90 degree weather and I could lock them in my bedroom when I had to work and she said it was not acceptable. Yesterday she said my animals could not be in the unit at all unless I put them in cages for the duration of project with no AC with workers present for the 90 hours in 90 plus degree weather. I am disabled. I told her if i have to board my dogs I would deduct it from my rent and they threatened to evict me and get a new renter in paying more rent after the construction was completed if I did not pay full rent amount this saturday.While I try to work part-time with my disability, 1-6pm, this whole situation is very inconvenient for me, I will have to be out of the house every day by 8am with my dogs.they are unwilling to try to accommodate me in any way even though I always pay my rent on the first, and they frequently come by unannounced onto the rental property, so much is broken and I also have mold on my ceiling from a leak 3 mos ago they also have not fixed. This appears to be a set up whereby I make all the concessions, financially and inconvenience wise and pay out of pocket for my dogs so they can get their house upgraded for free to rent to someone else after the construction is completed. This is the project in the FLL airport noise reduction program. Please advise.

I have hardwood floors above me which are very loud. I was woken up for a week straight and it made me quite angry. I had an incident where the person above me could hear me swearing. After management told me my neighbor could hear me I immediately stopped. Since then they have been looking for an excuse to evict me from my apartment. They have been sending me letters like loitering in the common areas and disturbing other residents. They just keep tacking on warnings and in the last letter they have written final warning even though I've done nothing wrong since the initial incident. What can I do, if anything, to combat this. I would really like to see the community manager get replaced. She has had a grudge against me since the initial incident.

I live in Texas and have heir property that is not divided.

I live in Texas and have heir property that is not divided. My Mom allowed my brother who is deceased to move in a mobile home but did not give him the land on which it sits. His adopted daughter is now in the home but has not paid taxes for 2014/2015. What can I do? There is also a water well that supplies water for four homes, except hers on the land. The water was shut-off recently for non payment and my neice i'm told paid to have the services reconnected and changed the name on the account from my mother's to hers. My mother worked hard over the years to keep the water rights to her property and I don't feel she should come in a try to take control without consulting our family. What are my rights?JA: Because real estate law varies from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?Customer: TexasJA: Has any paperwork been filed?Customer: paperwork filed for what?JA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: Yes. How can I get taxes from family who owe for 2014/2015 and how can I get name changed back for water well?

I have a verbal agreement with my roommate that we split the

I have a verbal agreement with my roommate that we split the rent & utilities 50/50 (I can also show proof through banking/rental payment registers of this). The roommate did not pay all of their rent share last month, resulting in a notice being posted and me having to cover the portion they did not pay. The roommate has now moved out without giving notice to the leasing company. I have given my notice to vacate, but am concerned I will be getting an eviction due to the roommate not paying their share & the fact that I cannot financially cover the entire rent. The leasing company said that I am liable for all the rent/utilities and need to "recover" any monies due from the roommate. We both signed the lease and I have followed all the required steps for vacating per the lease requirements, the roommate has not and just abandoned the property. Can the leasing company come after only myself for any money due or can the roommate be held liable for any remaining money owed since I cannot find any language in the lease that states we are jointly & severally responsible for the payment?
