Yeah I moved into an apartment on August 12th of this year.

Yeah I moved into an apartment on August 12th of this year. Less than 30 days after moving in we had a termite infestation in our bedroom, which they came in and vacuumed them and told us not to open the windows. This left our house extrmeley hot and stuffy, but if we opened the windows termites were pouring in. So fast forward to this Sunday, they infested the apartment again and even more this time. The maintenance vacuumed them and then AGAIN yesterday they came back, and we found them in our clothes, shoe boxes, even eating into our brand new furtnireJA: Because real estate law varies from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?Customer: CAJA: Has any paperwork been filed?Customer: No.....we asked them very specifically if they have any issue with pests and they said no and did not include any type of disclosureJA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: No not at this point

I am starting the 4th month of a 2yr lease in a New York

I am starting the 4th month of a 2yr lease in a New York City apartment I leased with a private owner through a broker. I agreed to pay the first 3 months and the last 3 months of rent in advance. September 1 is the start of the 4th month but I have been unable to contact the owner through email or through the real estate broker regarding where to send the rent check. I am concerned that the owner may be in default and wonder#1 what is my status as a tenant if the mortgage lender takes back the property?#2 To whom if anyone should I be sending a rent check (no address is specified in the rental agreement)?#3 At what point would I be at risk for paying a $500 monthy late fee?#4 what will be the status of the final last 3 months of rent I paid in advance if the lender does indeed reposess the property?

My husband and I gifted a home to our son and his wife. It

My husband and I gifted a home to our son and his wife. It is a condo and it is in our name and we make the payments. Their HOA has contacted use with a threat to evict the "tenants"I.e. Our children , if we don't produce a deed with their names on it. Property is not paid offso don't yet process the deed and our kids don't yet have the funds or credit to take over the loan.They are saying we violated HOA bylaws by renting the condo without HOA permission. It was never a lease, their is no rental agreement. What can we do to correct this? Thanks

I have been at my business 15yrs ,the last 5 my lease has

I have been at my business 15yrs ,the last 5 my lease has expired but I continued to pay month to month for the last 5yrs . Never late once in 15yrs.but have not singed either a rental agreement month to month or lease agreement.It is not late until the 6th. I slip the payment thru the door after work so it is there the 6th. I've been doing that for the last 10yrs. Because i work late to accommodate my business clients.they are telling me it was late?? I disagree. And i gave a verbal notice that was knowledged by a winston that took the call. A month ago .And last week i gave a email that I will be gone as of the 1st.Because I was told that my rent wouldn't be increased by new owner and he lied to me and raised it , $400 and have to pay water which is about $300. Which ive never had to pay.And a$ 280 new signing contract fee.I am upset that I was lied to,and sad that it was a verbal agreement witnessed by one of my stylist. But not written unfortunately. I trusted him ,because he told his son to tell me he wouldn't raise my rent because I have been a excellent tenant, never late.....now they said to me it's been late for the last 5months.and accumulated ? and they said I owe over $2000. Dollers??I put a 1,220.deposit do I get that back? I've left the place clean and In Good shape?they said I should have done the walk through inspection before I cleared out? I thought it was after I cleaned and cleared out?Under civil code section (1950.5 (j) I'm supposed to get my deposit back minus whatever damages other than normal wear and tare ?I need my deposit back....am I entitled to it or not?
