Customer Question
I am rebuilding a house...
I am rebuilding a house for a disaster relief program. The house will be completed at the end of February. The landlord emailed a letter today saying she wanted her to move out by 31Jul16. What is our recourse so she and her 7 children that are adopted and foster that she has taken in because she is so kind. I just don't want them to be homeless and her foster children to be taken away just due to an overlap of a couple weeks. Please tell me our recourse?

Anne was extremely helpful. Her information put me in the right direction for action that kept me legal, possible saving me a ton of money in the future. Thank you again, Anne!!

ElaineAtlanta, GA

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.

TonyApopka, FL

Wonderful service, prompt, efficient, and accurate. Couldn't have asked for more. I cannot thank you enough for your help.
