I've owned a condo for about 14 years, occupied by my daughter and her family. The house is fairly trashed; recently my husband and I put about $10,000 into it (he did the work, that's just materials). My daughter is now end stage alcoholic, and was just fired. She and her husband are currently drinking and gambling his paycheck at the local casino.
JA: What state is the property located in? And has anyone consulted a local attorney about this?
Customer: I want to protect my property - Santa Rosa, Ca, no, no consult.
JA: What are the terms of the lease? Any issues related to maintenance or upkeep?
Customer: No formal lease. The agreement was that her rent would vary according to the bank's statement, the mortgage went up in July by $200. No problems before this, but she hasn't paid the increase. Her behavior has deteriorated in the last two months greatly in the last two months.
JA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?
Customer: No, will this be telephone or computer?

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.

I am a landlord and I have a tenant who gave me 30 days
I am a landlord and I have a tenant who gave me 30 days notice to vacate but then moved out a week later. I then began a renovation of the bathroom./ The tenant now claims that I owe them pro-rated rent for the period of the renovation. I belive that, because they moved out, I have a right to renovate based on this guidance from the department of consumer affairs. "You can give the landlord notice any time during the rental period, but you must pay full rent during the period covered by the notice. For example, say you have a month-to-month rental agreement, and pay rent on the first day of each month. You could give notice any time during the month (for example, on the tenth). Then, you could leave 30 days later (on the tenth of the following month, or earlier if you chose to). But you would have to pay rent for the first 10 days of the next month whether you stay for those 10 days or move earlier. (Exception: You would not have to pay rent for the entire 10 days if you left earlier, and the landlord rented the unit to another tenant during the 10 days, and the new tenant paid rent for all or part of the 10 days.)" Am I in the wrong? … read more
