Can I send the following letter to my tenant in San Antonio, Texas without getting into trouble with Section 8 or Real Estate Law?This letter is to formalize a verbal contract between CXXXX and SXXXX. CXXXX asked SXXXX to spend $5,000 to remove the bathtub and replace with a walk in shower. SXXXX agreed if CXXXX paid him back $50 per month. CXXXX made 3 payments and then stated she needed some time to continue. It has been 8 months and it does not appear that CXXXX will be making more payments for the shower.Santiago is requesting that CXXXX or her live in caregiver VXXXX start paying by June 2017 or sign this agreement to pay for all repairs to the home either maintenance or repairs to the standards required by Section 8. If signed and returned by June 1, 2017 and if no charges are sent to SXXXX by June 2037 then the $5,000 will be forgiven. If there are any requests to Santiago from either Section 8, the city of San Antonio, the Duartes or neighbors, to repair anything by the end of any given calendar year then the lease will terminate September 31 of that year.I agree to the terms of this agreementCXXXX ___________________________________ Date______________VXXXX ____________________________________ Date______________Subject Property:XXXX.

My husband and I have separated. I live with my brother, but

My husband and I have separated. I live with my brother, but he is selling the house we've been living in. My husband has two motorcycles stored in the garage of that house which he had known for three months that he had to remove by today, because it's closing day. His plans for removal fell through and he has no others and is dumping the whole problem on us. He won't move them, or seek anyone to take them; he demands that we songs soJA: Because real estate law varies from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?Customer: That we find someone who will buy them from him, but won't do any of the work himself. What can we do to get them removed if we can't find anyone to buy them? We are in Washington state.JA: Has anything been filed or reported?Customer: No.JA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: I'm not sure. I don't know what's useful to know. We have offered to contact places which will accept them as donations but he wants money for them, and won't accept any other solution. The buyers of our house are threatening to delay closing over it, which would also delay closing of the house we're buying after... and that might lose us our new house completely.

I have a real estate legal question. Missouri, Only verbally

Hi. I have a real estate legal question.JA: Because real estate law varies from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?Customer: MissouriJA: Has anything been filed or reported?Customer: Only verbally discussedJA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: I closed on a turnkey rental property April 28th. The provider provided a verified signed lease of $1100 per month, rent rolls, and accounting. However, I moved the property management from the provider that we purchased from because I didn't like the terms of the PM agreement. My new PM provider collected rent from the tenant at $1000. I called the new provider out on the rent. He went back to the tenant to collect the extra $100. The tenant said that he had only been paying $1000 because he had put in monies for fixes. It was a handshake deal with the old provider. I had my realtor and new PM speak to the old provider about this "deal" and the old provider said that the he "never expected me to move PM away from him so he thought I'd never find out that he was making up the $100". And that he wanted to make things "right". What damages am I entitled too? As I never would have purchased this property with only this rent being collected.

My daughter is a college student at MUS. She lives in an off

My daughter is a college student at MUS. She lives in an off campus student apartment with three roomates. She was attacked in her bedroom apartment in the middle of the night by her roommate and two other individuals. We reported it to the police, signed a warrant, and notified the leasing office. The leasing office did not evict the other student neither did they take any steps to insure my daughter's safety. She is having nightmares and is emotionally disturbed behind this incident. As a mother , i cannot rest either knowing that this criminal has access to my daughter at any given time. Can I lawfully break out lease without being held accountable for the rent.JA: Since laws vary from place to place, what state is this in? And when was the warrant issued?Customer: Mississippi. The warrant was issued approximately two weeks agoJA: Has anything been filed or reported?Customer: We gave the leasing office the police report the day we filled it out. They said the could not lock her out of her place of residence. They said they would find my daughter another apartment. No one has followed up or investigated anything. I had my daughter to turn in a 30 day notice to vacate at the end of the current lease which would be July and to let them know she would not be returning. She renewed her lease in April prior to all of this. The new lease is set to begin August 1st. The roommate renewed as well and will be in the same apartment. They said she could not break the lease under any circumstances and would be held fully accountable until the end of the renewed lease agreement ends.JA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: That is all I can think of

I own a small office rental complex, I sent a lease renewal

I own a small office rental complex, I sent a lease renewal to a long term and good tenant, they said they would renew for 5 years but they want to be able to get out of the lease with a 90-day notice. I don't have any other potential tenants and I want them to stay but the 90-day lease cancel option could be a problem in the future. Any suggestions of how to negotiate this? Would it be proper to ask that if they do cancel that they pay any real estate commission for a new tenant?

I gave a 30 day notice on 4/27/17 on 5/18/17 I handed in the keys. I requested a refund on the days 5/27/2017 to 5/31/2017. i was told it didnt work that way?? I also asked since they are tearing out the flooring and updating all apartments can i have the refund for 5/19/2017 to 5/31/2017. she said no since it cant be rented. It is not my fault it cannot be rented its due to the upgrades it cant be rented. If they are ripping out the floors and I cannot live there then i believe i shpild be able to get my security deposit of $350.00 and the rent difference. Am I wrong?JA: What state is this in? And just to clarify, when was the purchase made?Customer: Modesto CaJA: Has anything been filed or reported?Customer: noJA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: not that i can think of
