I have lived in this house for 8 years and paid my rent

I have lived in this house for 8 years and paid my rent faithfully; usually on the third the month. It is a 3bdrm duplex and, I admit the rent is reasonable ($1100.00), that's why I stay here. I have been taking in roommate the past couple of years and, usually submit the required paperwork, never having any trouble with approval.This month I got a new roommate to add to my lease and, I thought, he was approved. However, my management company, Cornette Property Management, claims they can raise my rent by $125.00 a month without the required 60 day notice, claiming I have changed the terms of my original contract by adding a roommate to the lease. Mind you I have done this twice before without a rent increase.I don't so much mind the rent increase. I just think you should give the 60 day notice, as required by law. Also, I don't want to sign another contract with these people. They have given my until the 17th of this month.Gary Sample

I was arrested and released without having to post bail.The trooper called the next day and said she was charging me with control of premises where drugs are kept because she said it was better to be charged with than transportation, even though I'm originally charged with the transportation.What are my options?

Hello, I am a Town Clerk in the State of MA. I was previously a Records Manager and Compliance Officer in another Town. The Town Clerk there did not file by-laws with the Attorney Generals Office for 8 years, got caught and blamed me to the AG's Office, Town Counsel, Town Administration and the Board of Selectmen. It was not my responsibility to do that neither was the job to do that assigned to me. Would this be defamation of character?JA: Because employment law varies from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?Customer: MassachusettsJA: Has anything been filed or reported?Customer: He was fired, I don't know what would have been filed or reported. The Town Administrator did put in the papers that he lied.JA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: I don't think so. there is a Massachusetts Town Clerk's Association that I belong to and they have conferences. I am not looking forward to going because he has a lot of friends and I don't know how I will be treated.
