I am currently living in a rental property in New Jersey and the landlord put it on the Market, I have a 2 year lease and it will be up in July, however in Oct-Nov of 2016 he asked me if I wanted to buy the house I told him no, Then he listed it with a realtor and she told that he could do so 6 mos prior to the end of my lease, I had no problem with it, then they wanted to show the house, I told her 3 times a week I would do however he contacted her and told her that she could show the house everyday from 5-8:30pm and to give a 2 hour window on Sat. this really upset me so I told her that I will not allow anyone else to see the house until I move.

Not really sure about this but here it goes. I moved in my

Not really sure about this but here it goes. I moved in my place with lease in tact just before thanksgiving. I gave him the pro rated rent. In December I got sick and was out of work for a week, which made my checks short but in January however December's rent was Paid in full. On January 5 my landlord comes in (without notice as usual) and angrily ask about the rent, hitting his hand on the kitchen counter. I explained I was going to be short but will be able to catch the rent up before January ended, but also stated due to my sickness in December, he knew I was sick because he walked in on me without notice again while I was on the couch sleeping. On the 6th I paid a part of the rent, which he acknowledges 5 day to vacate statement I received. When I got paid I mailed him the rest of the rent plus the late fee stated in the lease. As agreed on Jan 5th I have paid all rent and late fees. That was sent Jan 20th. I received a 30 day notice my certified mail on the 29th Sunday is when I checked my mail and got the receipt to pick up. In it was a 5 day to vacate and a 30 day to vacate. Since my rent was caught up and I haven't heard anything I just assumed all is well. Today I got a notice to appear in court over all this. He hasn't cashed the checks but does admit to receiving a part of it, hasn't mentioned the other part. What legal grounds do I have?JA: Because laws vary from place to place, can you tell me what state the property is in?Customer: Lebanon, Tennessee. Wilson CountyJA: Has any paperwork been filed?Customer: I'm not sure if your real at this point or a robot, I stated he filed an eviction notice.JA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: Just that he kept coming over without 24 hours notice as stated in the lease and has called my daughter to tell her things that he hasn't contacted me about.

I am purchasing a duplex rental property in Pennsylvania

I am purchasing a duplex rental property in Pennsylvania with a 25% down payment and a mortgage on the rest. My mother would like to invest 50/50 in this property with me; however, I plan to apply for the mortgage on my own so that we do not both have the debt sitting on our credit reports. With that as background, my questions are as follows:1. Can we still put both of our names on the purchase agreement and/or deed, or otherwise purchase this together in a way that would be allowed by the lender?2. If not, if I sign a simple agreement with her shortly after the purchase stating that I am selling her half of my equity in the property in exchange for 1/2 of all fees and down-payments incurred, is that enough to make it "official"? I don't believe that PA charges real estate transfer tax between parents and their children, but am not sure whether such a sale would have to be documented in public records.
