I am a maintenance man at a resort. Part of my salary

Customer Question
I am a maintenance...

I am a maintenance man at a resort. Part of my salary includes a room. Am I considered a tenant or can I be kicked out at any time?

Lawyer's Assistant: Because laws vary from place to place, can you tell me what state the property is in?

Missouri

Lawyer's Assistant: What are the terms of the lease? Any issues related to maintenance or upkeep?

I am considered on-call 24/7 so I live here. There is nothing about upkeep.

Lawyer's Assistant: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?

There was never anything in writing other than a letter to my probation officer saying I live on property. I also have internet service in my name there. If that matters

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.
