Me and my ex boyfriend rented a house together and things

me and my ex boyfriend rented a house together and things have gotten violent several times the cops have been called several times. I want to leave him I've moved out. I want off of the lease so I'm not responsible for what he does with the house. I would stay at the house and pay rent but he will not leave and my landlord has told me I can't make him leave. It is not a safe place for me to live. My landlord will not take my name off the lease even though my ex has agreed to take over the lease. Is there some way I can get my name off of the lease because it's an unsafe living environment? I was thinking about giving a 30 day notice but I don't really know what that does. And if my ex is not willing to work with me I'm getting my name off the lease because he has told me he'll never let me leave him what then? I am in Kansas

My Brother and his girlfriend were living together in PA. He died last month. The landlord said they would let her out of the lease and asked for his next of kin info. Girlfriend cleaned all her stuff out, boyfriends adult daughter claimed as next of kin she wanted his stuff. fast forward to the end of the month and time to be out and daughter came and only took what was of value and left the rest of his belongings. Who is responsible to remove his items. His girlfriend because she was on the lease, or his next of kin or estate who claimed his items?

I filled out an application that included a $500 holding

I filled out an application that included a $500 holding fee. I was not made aware until after I completed the application that all utilities would remain in the company's name and be added to the rent every month. We have a budget and would not have signed the application if we knew this beforehand but the company is refusing to reimburse our money. Are we owed our holding fee since they did not disclose this information beforehand?JA: Because laws vary from place to place, can you tell me what state the property is in?Customer: IndianaJA: What are the terms of the lease? Any issues related to maintenance or upkeep?Customer: It's a 12 month lease. No issues with maintenance or upkeep. We did not sign the lease because we saw the information about the utilities.JA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: No
