My story starts 23 years ago when I moved into a trailer

Hello, my story starts 23 years ago when I moved into a trailer that was on my parents property, agreement was that I paid the property taxes and that's all. My mom passed away from cancer in 1999 and things with my dad got distance. Over the years we still paid the taxes and things were fine. Now, my dad wants to move on the property that is his but my family and I have lived here for 23 years. So he said he is charging us RENT. We did not pay it to him as we did not agree on that many years ago plus it started out at 100 and is now up to 200 a month. Do I have any rights considering I have paid as agreed the taxes and nothing was verbal about the rent. Just got a eviction notice today....help!JA: Because laws vary from place to place, can you tell me what state the property is in?Customer: PaJA: Has any paperwork been filed?Customer: NoneJA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: No

I live in Gladstone MO, and have an unwanted mentally ill

Hi - I live in Gladstone MO, and have an unwanted mentally ill house guest. She used to be a neighbor, and I let her in not realizing she was homeless and delusional - all new developments since I knew her several years ago. I've tried several approaches to get her to leave - over five weeks now. She doesn't receive mail at my address, pays for nothing, no verbal or written agreement about her 'tenancy'. So what do I need to do to get her out of my house before I join her in her delusional world?

My landlord sent me an email that he has a new leasing

My landlord sent me an email that he has a new leasing agent. All I know about her is her email address. She ignores all my requests for her address, phone number and real estate license, but sends people to my home without any notice and if I don't let them in "documents" that I refused to let them in. Is she required to give me this information?

Hey Barrister,I found a replacement for my room (same situation we discussed last time). She paid me rent for February and then I wrote a check to the landlord.She filled out the paperwork for a background check and provided all the information requested to the Landlord on February 2nd.Since then the landlord has been giving her a hard time, demanded to see her tax returns and is now demanding that she can only move in if she pays through July! Is that (or any of this) even legal?Best,Ariana
