I rent a house out in Fremont CA. The rental contract ends

I rent a house out in Fremont CA. The rental contract ends June 30th. I have given notice for not extending the contract several times from 6 months out. Now the tenant wants another 30 days. What should I do to make sure he moves after 30 days. Can I increase the rent to closer to market rate for this 30 days extension, more as a discouragement to stay beyond?

My sister and I inherited a personal residence in Ohio from

My sister and I inherited a personal residence in Ohio from our Father. Our Aunt (Age 80) signed an informal contract 1986 which allowed her to live there until she chooses to leave or dies. Her Adult son has lived with her off and on all these years. The agreement was for her to pay a rental amount to cover taxes and insurance. She has a stroke a few years ago, he has taken advantage of the situation for many years and is now writing her checks for the rent, which bounced in Feb. 2016, we wish to sell this home at the end of this year and are having a difficult time with making him understand that this must happen. Our families have our own bills to deal with and it is time. Our Aunt is not aware of all that has happened, disrepair, etc., Should we proceed with contacting a Layer or real estate agent. Her Son can be very difficult as he is convinced he should just get this home. We have sent a certified letter to alert them they have 6 months to get out. It has been a week and I believe he will not even sign for the letter. Thanks for advice

Of Law Talk if possible (if not available by 11:00 PST, then

Doug of Law Talk if possible (if not available by 11:00 PST, then open to anyone)I am about to close on a mobile home in mobile home park in CA. The rental agreement reads that commencement starts July 1. I close later today 17th June and start moving in right away. This "red flagged" me as in 30 years of renting, I have never seen a start date 2 weeks LATER than I am moving in. I have been dealing with assistant who says "we have everybody do this." I have a meeting with manager later today. Just because much of the world is "intellectually constipated" doesn't mean I should be. Signing this document without the date commencing now, doesn't seem like a good idea. my mother who was a real estate agent for more than a decade agrees. what do you think?

When entering into a rental agreement, does the management

When entering into a rental agreement, does the management company have to disclose to the renter major upcoming repairs, such as paving your parking area and stripping and painting the exterior of your condo complex, if this is going to occur during your rental agreement period? Contact with owner of property, was he knew about upcoming maintance, but did not consider it important to notify us or the management company.Are we expected to honor the remainder of our rental agreement, approx three months, as long as we make a thirty day move out notice and have condo professionally cleaned as agreed upon.Thanks for reading thisGaryState of Hawaii

Several months ago I contacted hydro one regarding poles on

Good day several months ago I contacted hydro one regarding poles on my rural property that infringe on property. I set a rate and asked that they look into the matter and that I would commence charges of 1000 per month plus interest on occurring accounts. They sent someone in Feb to check the poles and lines out. Since that date I continue to send letters and bills they are now up to 7000. and have failed to answer. I now would like to send them another letter stating that I am going to increase the amount since I had plans on constructing and their failure to answer me has hurt me further. What is the legal term for this is it failure to allow me Quiet enjoyment of my property. I intend to issue tidy sum to gather their intention to this. As well I will be sending a copy to my MPP . Also do you have and further suggestion on how I am handling this. Thankyou
