Customer Question
HI, my son and...

HI, my son and wife are renting my mothers house next door and we have never drawn up an agreement,of course this is causing problems. Now we need to do an agreement and don't know the best way to go about it. I am somewhat computer literate, and would like to know a website to go to that would help us thanks

Lawyer's Assistant: What state are you in? It matters because laws vary by location.

Virginia

Lawyer's Assistant: What steps have you taken so far?

None just told him we need to draw up something and he gets defensive as if we think he's going to stiff us,they are next door and we really want to keep the relationship at a decent level.at first they wanted to buy it,but don't think that will happen

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

No that's it

Here is a link to a basic lease agreement that you can download and fill in to present to your son and wife for signature.

VA LEASE AGREEMENT

Do not sign it until the tenants sign first.

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

Not only did he answer my Michigan divorce question but was also able to help me out with it, too. I have since won my legal case on this matter and thank you so much for it.
