I have a question about my HOA rules. My HOA has put a

Hi, I have a question about my HOA rules. My HOA has put a couple of new rules, ( not by laws) that ONLY apply to renters and not the owners. For example, renters can NOT have any pets on the property, or renters can only have one vehicle in the parking lot whether they are married or not. The one that really bothers me is about the parking. The president of the HOA is trying to get rid of renters by putting these rules in place. As an owner of a unit, I do not see how it can be legal to put rules on renters specifically. Is the legal? If not, where can I site that information.JA: I think they do a wonderful job.

I have a cousin who has a 5 month old puppy, he asked before he got the dog and they said he needed a doctors note which he has.JA: Where is the property located?Customer: In Minot NDJA: Has any paperwork been filed?Customer: What is happening is that someone has complained about the dog and now they are threatening to evict them if she barks again. Theirs is not the only dog in the apartment building that barks. And since I have had the dog on several occiasions I can a test to the fact that she doesn't hardly ever bark I think I have heard her maybe 5 times and trust me I have two dogs that bark more then she does.JA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: Is it legal for the property management to evict them when they have done as asked. Keep in mind that one of the complaints was because my cousin was playing with the puppy and she was running across the floor and barked. It was between 5:30 and 7 pm.JA: OK.

I have a tenant who is on a month-to-month lease. I recently

I have a tenant who is on a month-to-month lease. I recently inspected the rental property and learned he has moved in two other people without my permission, has a dog (no pets allowed), and trashed my property. I want to end his tenancy with a 30-day notice (lease says 30-notice is required. My property management company says I have to give him 60 days notice to move because he has been there more than a year. I thought if he was in violation of any of the terms of the lease, all I had to do was the 30-day notice.Are they correct? Additionally there are some repairs I want to make immediately and have a local handyman but the property management firm says I have to have a licensed handyman (and they apparently have one, although substantially more expensive). Do I have to have a licensed handyman?JA: Because real estate law varies from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?Customer: Folsom, CaliforniaJA: Has any paperwork been filed?Customer: No, but the property management firm is planning to place a 24-hour notice on his door today of repairs to be made tomorrow and Saturday.JA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: I don't think so. Thanks.

My son was the fourth or fifth replacement roommate in his

My son was the fourth or fifth replacement roommate in his last apartment. The prior roommate had a comfort animal that urinated all over the carpet, leaving stains. Since the apartment complex is NO PETs, the tenant had to register the animal as a comfort animal with the office. Then, when she moved out, the office did a blacklight test, showing that there was cat urine in the carpet. They told her they wouldn't charge her for the carpet as they were planning to replace it anyway. In fact, she received her full deposit back.When my son moved in, the landlord stated that they couldn't/wouldn't do a walkthrough but gave him an "Apartment Lease Agreement" to sign, along with a "Renewal of Lease" and an "As Is Form - Roommate Change". Attached to the As Is form is a checklist from 2013 showing that there was already damage to the carpet (scorch marks) and some other issues.Now that my son and his roommate have moved out at the end of the lease, the landlord is charging THEM to replace the carpet padding because they "didn't realize that the padding would damaged." Can they do this?
