I am being sued for breech of contract by my former

I am being sued for breech of contract by my former landlord. When I moved out at the end of my lease I took pictures of the house and know what repairs needed to be made. They decided to charge me $1649.50 but have refused to give me a breakdown of what each repair that they made actually cost. I put down a $150 pet damage deposit as well as a $600 deposit. Because they have not given me the breakdown I have not paid the additional $1049.50 that they believe I owe. There are many other issues that occurred while I lived in the home such as no running water during the winters, extremely high heating costs and the home was always cold, being told that my not having water was not as important because there were others without electricity, etc. I guess I need to know if I should try and fight there suit or if I should just pay it and wipe my hands of the situation.

My apartment complex is refusing to accept my rent. I transferred to a different apartment in the same complex. They are trying to charge me $454.00 to replace the carpet in the last apartment stating there were stains that could not be removed despite my cleaning. I asked to see their pictures and the pictures do not look like the one I took. I am not sure what to do.

I recently just reached the end of my lease in an apartment.

Hi -- I recently just reached the end of my lease in an apartment. We had pets, however, there was a "No Pet Policy". Our former Land Lord is now requesting that we pay $150/month for the past 12 months ($1800) because we had pets. Nowhere in our lease does it day that pets will cost $150 a month. It simply says "No pets will be allowed". I understand we may have to pay damages as result of any damage caused by said pet, but I'm unsure of where he has the right to ask for the $1800 as that was never an agreed upon amount nor are pet fees or anything of that sort listed in the lease.JA: Because laws vary from place to place, can you tell me what state the property is in?Customer: Ohio.JA: Have you talked to a lawyer yet?Customer: Not yet.JA: Anything else you think the lawyer should know?Customer: No.

My daughter and her college roommate moved out of their apt.

My daughter and her college roommate moved out of their apt. on July 31, 2016. Wh n moving in, they paid a deposit of $925+500/pet deposit. We received an itemized list today from the landlord stating charges over and above what the deposits equaled. Their dogs did some damage to two windowsills and two sets of blinds along with one place on the carpet. All should've easily been covered in the pet deposit or definitely for the total deposit of $1425.00. He has listed charges for the repairs among other things that shouldn't have been a problem. We have asked to see his receipts for what he has spent on repairing, cleaning, etc...and show us that he did, indeed, have to spend more than what the original deposits were. He told us that he doesn't keep receipts and so, cannot show them to us. From a legal standpoint, what advice would you give us when proceeding with this matter.

I and my sister received an eviction notice called

I and my sister received an eviction notice called ejectment. My sister is out of town on assignment until the end of August. The hearing is on Thurs. 8/11/2016. My sister was unable to pay July's rent due to no job and I don't work. My sister asked the rental agent to send her a notice of intent to evict if the rent was not paid so she could send to her 401K investment firm (she has < 2000 in the 401K and needed proof it was a "hardship" loan). She asked the agent to either send her the letter by email or to get it to her before she went on assignment. The agent did not send it to her. I was very ill from the sunday my sister left and ended up in the hospital. I had no way to send my sister the letter until I was able to fix my computer. I don't know what is to happen at an eviction hearing, how long do I have to get out of apartment (as most people know, the judge generally rules in favor of the landlord), and should the proceedings go on if one of the defendents is unable to make the hearing. I have pets and am worried that the landlord will change the locks if I am out, and my pets will be hurt. The landlord has already sent over a locksmith to set up to change locks.

Showing a house to potential new tenants while still occupied.Normal business hours? Include weekends? I would agree to a Sunday showing like they want, no problem but the landlord has emailed demanding that all occupants and pets be out of the house completely from 4-8pm on Sunday night as they have multiple showings. That's the part I have an.issue with. State of Delaware and I've found all the notice info in state code but can't find where they have the right to have me or everyone out of the house and for that large a window?
