Before I begin, what is the see or this service?JA: Where is the property located?Customer: Columbia, South Carolina (apartment community).JA: Has any paperwork been filed?Customer: No.JA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: I leased a 2BR apartment in 2012 that burned in 2015 (faulty wiring). The manager didn't have another 2BR to put me in then and put me in a 3BR that leases for more than the one I originally leased. The regional manager told me to stay in the 3BR paying the lease amount for the 2BR until it was inhabitable. The lease I've been signing the past two years has been for the 2BR (at the current lease rate) although I'm still in the 3BR because they still haven't repaired the 2BR. A notice was put on my door yesterday demanding the difference in the 2BR and 3BR apartment in 5 days, or eviction will begin.

I am starting an Airbnb business and had an issue with a guest mentioning Airbnb when signing in with security. They were stopped and security confronted me about that being against the building policies. However, after looking through the lease, I don't see anything regarding subletting or Airbnb. Should I be concerned?

Tenant vs Landlord issue. Need an answer that will hold up

Tenant vs Landlord issue. Need an answer that will hold up in court if needed:Signed Lease expires end of Feb 2017. Clause 3 of that lease states:Renewal term: either party may terminate this agreement at the end of the initial term or renewal term by giving the other party at least a 60 day written notice prior to the end of the initial term or a renewal term, but if no notice is given, then the agreement will be extended for and additional one year period on the same terms and conditions contained in this agremeent with the exception that the rent will increase $50.00 per month above the rent for the prior 12 months.-- agremeent -- note spelling in last sentence, if important.Neither side gave notice of change or non renew prior to the 60 day clause above, so I am making a presumption that the lease would extend 1 year as stated above at $50 more per month.After notifying the land lord of this lease clause, apparently did not sit well with them, so they immediately sent a new lease for 90 days and no renew, with no signature requirement on it to accept the new lease length.So, am I forced into the 90 day lease that does not need to be signed, or is the signed one with the clause extension of 1 year at $50 more the legal lease, or can I opt to accept the 90 day lease without fearing a lease break from the current auto renew?Do I need to sign anything more if the current lease extends as stated in the clause?

My lease was year to year, with an expiration date. I did

My lease was year to year, with an expiration date. I did not terminate my lease. I occupied the property and was out a week before the lease expired. It was my understanding that since I did not terminate the lease and I fulfilled my obligation that I did not have to give a notice that I would be moving. The rental company wants to charge me for 2 months rent since I did not give them notice. They are saying due to the FL laws I will have to pay the 2 months rent. Is that correct?

I live in county vancouver. For a year now we have

I live in clark county vancouver washington. For a year now we have complained that our downstairs neighbors monstrous pot smoking habit has caused us a great deal of discomfort and we hate the smell. The landlord has told them they have to get air purifiers and for a short time it had gotten better. But since it is not a smoke free building and pot is quasi legal here. They say they can do nothing more. Well, it is so bad now that our house stinks regularly and we are leaving to go out to get away from it quite often. It pervades even our bedrooms upstairs. We are now in the process of trying to adopt and we worry that this will effect the process of the home visit. is there any way we can serve a cease and desist or something to that effect?
