I have rented my home going on 3 years now. We signed a 1

I have rented my home going on 3 years now. We signed a 1 year lease when we first moved in. Since we have not signed anything, just continued paying rent. My landlord has not done any maintenance. Not even paint or anything. There is normal wear and tear plus it was outdated when we moved in. It's over 100 yrs old. Yesterday out of the blue she text my husband (FridayJA: Because real estate law varies from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?Customer: And says she is coming in my house on Sunday with the last tenant because the last tenant supposedly hide something there and needs to retrieve it. I feel as if she can come in but why should I let a previous tenant in to dig who knows where. She has never asked to come in before. I feel like my privacy is being violated. What should I do?JA: Has any paperwork been filed?Customer: LouisianaJA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: How long would I need to give her for me to move out? Because she does nothing to maintain, I can't even clean the outside. I tried to pressure wash and paint started flying off. I just want someone who maintains their property so that I don't lose my deposit for her failure to maintain things. I keep my home clean but I can't prevent normal wear and tear after 3 years.

A close friend of mine is on a month to month rental of a

A close friend of mine is on a month to month rental of a home in a California senior community. Last October, the owner gave her a 120 day notice to move out because they are wanting to sell the property in the Spring. Unfortunately, my friends' sister, who is on the rental agreement, has been put on hospice as of December and given a maximum of 6 months to live. It is going to be very difficult for several reasons for the two of them to move out on February 28th. Does she and her sister have any rights to allow her to stay past February 28th?
