Hi- I live in Reno , NV and had rented a property for six years. The homeowner decided to sell it and gave us 30 days to vacate. We did. We cleaned it and left it very nice. They are billing us for new paint, new carpet and wear and tear over a 6 year period so they can sell their house. We really feel like they are taking advantage and trying to extract from us.JA: Because real estate law varies from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?Customer: NevadaJA: Has anything been filed or reported?Customer: noJA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: They sent us a bill.

We have an apartment and have been renting it to a man for 3

We have an apartment and have been renting it to a man for 3 years. His rent was paid by Section 8, as he was on some kind of a fresh start program. The last rent payment we received was in December. We did not receive a payment for January, February or March.I called social services and they told me they could not tell me anything, but if we didn't get payment, something was wrong. (Note: Our tenant keeps telling us he spoke to the judge personally and payment is on the way) Social services told us we would NOT be receiving any more payments. When I confronted our tenant, and told him he had to leave, he said "You have to put one of those notices on te door first. You can't legally kick me out.'

Oh boy, where do I start? I went through Renter's Warehouse

Oh boy, where do I start? I went through Renter's Warehouse to find a renter & have all papers signed. I will never use this company again. It was a horrible experience. My place was for rent 9-1-2016, however, the renter wanted to move in on August 13, which she did. This is in Carver County, Minnesota.....Are you in Minnesota? October rent was paid a day after the time due. She owed me $50.00 for the 1 day late fee. I have not informed her of that & thought I would take it out of her security deposit. The November rent was paid with two checks. Rent is $1425.00 per month. Her $1000.00 check bounced. I still have not rec'd the December rent payment, however, she did put $1650.00 in the bank on Sunday. Her explanation of this was this was for her December rent + late payment fines. Keep in mind her November rent has not been totally paid. She stated that 'she hopes to have any remaining $$ owed-including all late fees paid by Friday'. I want to get rid of her. Could I, now, serve eviction notice? I realize that you most likely need to see the lease. Please advise.JA: Because laws vary from place to place, can you tell me what state the property is in? No. I'm the Real Estate Solicitor's Assistant. Has any paperwork been filed?Customer: No paperwork has been filed. MinnesotaJA: Anything else you want the solicitor to know before I connect you?Customer: The renter has told me she doesn't like me. My home was very pristine, before she moved in. It is now a mess. I asked Renter's Warehouse if they did both a financial & legal background checks. The realtor told me that they did the checks.....obviously, they didn't check the legal, for she has had 2 DWI, an automobile repo, & late rent payments. She does not want me in the house, even though the lease says I can go in, given notice. I could go on & on.
