I will need to relocate for work in a few months. I just

I will need to relocate for work in a few months. I just signed my lease for a year in April. I couldn't find anything about breaking the lease in my contract, so I looked it up in Nevada law. I'm trying to minimize my cost, I see that I might have to pay for the rest of my year lease. My brother might be willing to take over the lease under his name but do I have any other options? I also saw that my landlord could actively find another tenant too and might minimize my cost is that true?

I took over the remaining 7 months in a one-year lease in VA

I took over the remaining 7 months in a one-year lease in VA as a subleaser and my name is ***** ***** official leasing agreement. The leasing agreement does not indicate that the landlord prohibits sublet. Because I'm moving away for graduate school, I need to find someone to sublet the for remaining three months, but now the landlord said she doesn't allow me to find another subleaser since the "association" of the neighborhood does not allow short-term sublet. I thought I would have the right to find sublet if the leasing agreement does not prohibit it. Is there anything I can do to find out if the landlord is lying? Thanks!JA: Because laws vary from place to place, can you tell me what state the property is in?Customer: VirginiaJA: Has any paperwork been filed?Customer: Do you mean leasing agreement?JA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: No

My friend lives in an apt that her employer sublets,

My friend lives in an apt that her employer sublets, however, she's never signed a lease nor did her employer provide her with one. Last night, her employer, entered (without permission & proper notice) giving her an "eviction" notice. What is the proper way to handle this?JA: Because laws vary from place to place, can you tell me what state the property is in?Customer: Bellevue, WA (King County)JA: Has any paperwork been filed?Customer: No. The "eviction" notice is not necessarily proficient. Subletter & tenant are both immigrants. My friend, Kathleen's situation goes beyond her eviction problem as there are other problems (former employer labor violations, threats, etc) she has to tackle, but we're starting with the housing issue. She is from India, no family & I've only met her two weeks ago through work. We work for Kroger Co.JA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: Not that I can think of, no.

I'm wanting to make sure I'm understanding this correctly.

I'm wanting to make sure I'm understanding this correctly. "Under California law, a landlord cannot use a financial or income standard for persons who want to live together and combine their incomes that is different from the landlord's standard for married persons who combine their incomes." This means that if two people want to live together who aren't married, they can't be held to a different financial standard from a married couple?JA: Where is the property located?Customer: pacific grove, californiaJA: Has any paperwork been filed?Customer: yesJA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: Current lease has one tenant, but we want to add another who would be moving from out of state therefore will be without an income till a job is found.

I took over the lease (I am the only one on it) of my apt

Hi Pearl, I took over the lease (I am the only one on it) of my apt this past September, and moved a new roommate in. I signed a month to month sublet agreement with her. About a month into living with my other roommate and I her behavior became particularly odd. When I asked her to leaved with a months notice, 2 months in she replied with a "you'd have to evict me." She refused to speak to me via anything other then email. Finally, I spoke to her, feeling that the eviction process was too daunting. A month later, she moved to LA, changed her address and started sending me rent certified. She told me she would return in the "Spring." Following up with this, yesterday, I sent a very docile email to see when this time frame could mean. She reacted combatively, sent an email saying she deleted the voice mail I left her (I have called her only this once since she left), and basically called the request "emotional." I feel un-safe having her looming over our heads, and so does the other woman living in the apt, my question is what is the by the books way of evicting her. I feel she has been evicted elsewhere, she has several names ( have a copy of her license), and seems to be with it with the law. Thank you, StacyJA: Because laws vary from place to place, can you tell me what state the property is in?Customer: East Village, NYCJA: Has any paperwork been filed?Customer: I have not done anything, yet, I want to make sure I do everything rightJA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: She has exhibited behavior consistent with someone dealing with mental illness. That's it. Thank you for your swift reply.
