A woman moved into my home before putting all utilities in

A woman moved into my home before putting all utilities in her name or paying 350 in rent.. which is normally 725.00 but she helped with painting and cleaning..She also did some things that i told her not to do..Should i send her a certified letter stating that rent is due and have her sign that she will put utilities in her name so that i can turn them off and send her a lease? I have tried to work with her as much as i can but she is trying to completely make all the rules and not follow any..She was on leased housing and did not get an extension and some complications came up. She blames me but they have several hoops to work thru but ultimately she should have gotten an extension and it would have worked out.

I have owned a building since Feb 2016. It's a four family

I have owned a building since Feb 2016. It's a four family apt building. 3 of the tenants are good. One woman who has been there for about 2.5 years has mental issues. She is harassing the other tenants and their visitors. Yelling profanities, banging on their doors, threatening them and their pets. Her son has admitted she is 'off her meds' and is trying to deal with it, but he is young and seems unsure of what to do. The police have been called a few times, but she won't answer the door and they say they are limited on what to do. She is clearly digressing. At this point, my good tenants want to move, so I want to evict her.

I have rented a house to a tenant last two years with the

I have rented a house to a tenant for the last two years with the utilities in my name. The lease contract specifies that the tenant is responsible for the utilities. The tenant is constantly late on their rent and utilities and I've told them I'm canceling my account and need them to get the utilities in their name. They are not cooperating. I want to turn them off, but fear I will violate the rule that prevents landlords from shutting off utilities. Am I obligated to keep them on?

I have lived in a rental house years and the landlord never

I have lived in a rental house for 16 years and the landlord never did a walk through. The owner has not been in the house since over 20 years ago but I was told he was coming to look at the property. The landlord gave notice of entry but didn't have a key so she only looked at the other rentals on the property as I was out of town. I had left her a key but she made no effort to contact me. I just returned from a long trip to get a notice they were terminating my lease even though I do not have a current lease as I had asked for a 1 year agreement and they never sent it. They gave me 30 days to vacate the property even though I have never missed a rent payment and am in good standing with the neighbors etc. They listed no reason but when I called and asked they said the owner had driven by and wanted it returned to original condition so they are kicking me out to remodel the house even though the owner has not stepped foot in it for at least 20 years. I live in Flagstaf, AZ and I just want to know if I have any rights or if they can legally throw me out with 30 days notice after living here for 16 years and paying about $100,000.00 in rent?

When does a 60-day notice-to-vacate start when my rental property is sold? I was told to vacate at the date of an offer (financing was then rejected, then accepted- only 1 week ago). I have to be out in 24 days, the closing date. Fair, legal?
