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?

My lease was year to year, with an expiration date. I did

My lease was year to year, with an expiration date. I did not terminate my lease. I occupied the property and was out a week before the lease expired. It was my understanding that since I did not terminate the lease and I fulfilled my obligation that I did not have to give a notice that I would be moving. The rental company wants to charge me for 2 months rent since I did not give them notice. They are saying due to the FL laws I will have to pay the 2 months rent. Is that correct?

I complicated. I recently visited my brother in Plainview,

I complicated. I recently visited my brother in Plainview, TX. He lives alone there and I decided to look for a place to be near him. he used to work at a dairy going to Olton. On the way there was a mobile home that could use some company. We looked around for owner and one day as he was passing by there was a blazer so he stopped. The lady that was there happened to be the owner. She told us she would allow us to live there if we fixed it up. It was September 2016. we agreed. she told me she wanted rent by November and if we need more time to let her know. I am from Seguin just left husband, have most of what I own in storage in Seguin. I thought that was great. I started to cut trees and clean up. bought carpet for all rooms. I'm on SSD and don't get a lot but I was so happy I was going to have a place of my own. it was all word of mouth. I went 3 times to bring my belongings from my Storage in Seguin. The last time was Thanksgiving eve. I had my Car packed with my belongings. My brother wanted me to wait till after Thanksgiving to go and unload. I ensisted. As I arrived at the property there was a No Traspassing sign on the gate. I preisted to enter to find all my stuff scattered ,opened and missing items. every thing was not inside but everywhere on the yard.

The business plan I'm developing involves selling raw land.

The business plan I'm developing involves selling raw land. I live in California but the land will be throughout the United states . I purchase the raw land and sell it to a buyer. After selling it I rent the property from the buyer in exchange for being able to buy it back at the price I sold it for.This is, essentially, a "call option" on the property where I'll profit if the raw land goes up in value. If it doesn't then I lose out on the rental payments I've made on the property.From the buyer's perspective it's a good investment because it allows them to earn a stream of income in addition to the principal being protected by raw land.I really have two legal questions:1) Are there any restrictions on how I can sell this land? My current plan is to sell it much like a homeowner should sell a property FSBO (for sale by owner) and advertise it on craigslist, fliers, and the like.2) Do I have to have an LLC in the state where the land is being held?3) What paperwork is involved in the sale of the property and the rental agreement/call option on the property? I likely will work with a lawyer to help me through this process but just wanted to understand generally what I'm going to be looking at.

I currently have a lease with my apartment. Without putting

I currently have a lease with my apartment. Without putting other people name on the lease, I have sublease my other room to someone. Since she rejected to sign lease agreement with me, we had verbal agreement about rent period and deposit. For deposit, I told her that deposit cannot be refunded if she moves out during the rent period and she agreed. Sublease was ended in 12/31/16 so she had changed her decision several times and finally told me that she is going to stay until August. With that, I replied her that with the same condition we talked about the beginning, you can live until the August. After two weeks, she told me she has to move out during mid January 2017. I told her that since you are moving out during the lease term, I will have to let you know that I can't refund the deposit. Whatever rent amount you live for January needs to be paid. She did not want to do that so I had to tell her about eviction process. She paid for her rent for whatever days she will live in January after talking to her lawyer.JA: PayPal, Debitcard or credit card are all fine. Because laws vary from place to place, can you tell me what state the property is in?Customer: GAJA: Has any paperwork been filed?Customer: She told me they are in process of filing me for rent and some other thing.JA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: After she paid her rent, she did want me to refund deposit. So I told her that she has to give me 30 days legal notice before she moves out and if I do not receive it by 5th of this month, either eviction or remainder rent will be deducted from deposit and send to you within 30 days of leaving. She was saying she will file me for rent and something else is coming. Please help me if I will be filed for these. I really need your advise. Thank you.

My sister agreed to pay property taxes on mobile home in

My sister agreed to pay property taxes on mobile home in 2013 and would continue rental agreement until tax amount was met - probably 2-3 years.JA: Because real estate law varies from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?Customer: Indiana - but when the mobile home was paid off they tried to gift it to me with $11,000 back taxes without my consent. This is a fraudulent attempt of tax evasion and deception of title transfer. The County changed tax records on their own without any legal transfer of title.JA: Has any paperwork been filed?Customer: The submitted an affidavit but did so without my knowledge.JA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: Seems there is a lot of collusion going on within the system and I am having trouble getting justice.
