My tenant signed a trec residential lease agreement when I

My tenant signed a trec residential lease agreement when I was a realtor. I agreed to pay the other agent a 20% renewal commission if tenants renew their lease. My tenants are going to renew and I will pay the 20% renewal commission this last time. I am no longer a realtor and my license is inactive.Should I write a new lease and specify this cancels the prior agreement? I'm not sure how to handle this smoothly.

The tenant has handicap and is wheelchair. The mattress and box spring are no good, needs to be replaced.I suggested we get a sleigh bed without a box spring, and a foam memory mattress, and the tenant said "no". She does not want a Memory foam mattress, she does not want a bed without a box spring.We did not plan on keeping this bed after the tenant leaves, and planned on a queen size bed. The tenant said "no".The rental agreement (not a residential lease, as this is a 3 months vacation type rent) stipulates that this is not a handicap ready unit and that the tenant agrees to take it knowing it.What is here reasonable and what is unreasonable? What would be the right thing to do?

I need to provide notice to our landlord that we intend to move out..we require to give 30 day notice and we prepaid last month when we moved in July of 2015 if I give notice now and vacate on December 31 is that acceptable?JA: Because laws vary from place to place, can you tell me what state the property is in?Customer: California. We signed a 1 year lease that expired July 15th 2016JA: Has any paperwork been filed?Customer: I don't understand your question.....I have not sent a certified letter yet, if that is what you mean.JA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: We have been very uncomfortable living here since the owner went into legal action with the homeowners association. We have been served by the sheriff's office to pay rent directly to them instead of the owners, our car was towed due to the owner losing all privileges for common areas which has cost us over 750 out of pocket and we just want to move....I don't expect to be reimbursed or short pay our notice, we just want to make sure that we move out perfectly as we have discovered that our landlords are not professionals

Myself and one other person signed a residential lease

Myself and one other person signed a residential lease agreement for one year. I moved in the house and the roommate only moved furniture into the house but has never stayed at the house. He also never paid rent from day one. I suggested that I would talk to the property manager and have him removed from the lease and I would refund his security deposit. The roommate responded back to me and said that he wanted me to purchase his furnishing and refund his deposit. I let him know that was not reasonable and told him to pick his furniture up and get it out of the house. I have maintained and will continue to maintain the monthly rent but want him off the lease and key and garage door opener returned. Can I request the property manager to remove him from the lease and not refund his deposit since he never paid rent. The rental is located in Tennessee and I have already paid 60 days rent and now approaching 90 days.

Recently I ran into issue with my previous tenant who was

Hello,Recently I ran into issue with my previous tenant who was not ready to vacate my house on time. I had already scheduled a new tenant to move in once my old tenant would have vacated. My old tenant vacated after 1.5 months. During this time my new tenant waited for my house to be available and signed a short term lease some of 3 months at other property. Now my old tenant have vacated and my new tenant have moved in. But now my new tenant is saying that I am suppose to incur the financial loss he had to face due to this situation. Am I obligated by law to do that? Can he take me to court for that?
