Renting is a more flexible living situation than buying a house, allowing tenants to pay a monthly fee (rent) in exchange for a place to live. People can rent houses, apartments, even rooms. Ask questions about renting here.
When a property goes into foreclosure, the lender will eventually  take possession of the property. The lender can lock the property  at that time with your possessions at that time. The time frame  depends on the discussions between the lender and the borrower.  Unfortunately the Tenant does...

In the lease a landlord claims the right go on the property. If the persons residing on the property are not the original tenant that signed the lease, the landlord committed no crime. If any other persons outside the landlords knowledge are residing on the property it is illegal, or a violation of...
If you signed it, then you're entitled to a copy. If you're referring to someone else's lease, then you have no right to a copy. If someone wants to give you another person's lease, that doesn't violate any law I know of.
In most states it is illegal for landlords to raise a tenants rent  during their lease period. Where it is legal, the landlord can  raise the rent based on the items that need to be fixed, or double  it to make up for financial losses.
The US Housing and Urban Development (HUD) states that you can have  2 people per bedroom, plus one. However, local zoning laws may only  allow a count of 2 people per bedroom. Section 8 only allows 2  people per bedroom. Being related or not does not seem to be an  issue.
Moving out after your rent runs out is chancy; you may be evicted  before you plan to move. You may also be liable for the remainder  of the lease. Discuss the issue with the landlord, and you may find  some help in response to your advance notice.
== ==   I normally list all of the following types of contracts and leases on Schedule G: Residential leases (like a rental lease for where the debtor lives, EVEN IF it is only a verbal month-to-month arrangement), cell phone contracts, lot rent agreements, land purchase/sale contracts, home...

Sound depends on the structure between the floors - trusses, cement  or other means may have different effects. If the floor above you  is carpeted, you may not hear the same sounds as if it is tiled and  people are rolling their chairs. How the people above you move -  clumping around, or...
IN june it ranges from 100 GBP to the south Kensington area of  750GBP per night
You can break it, but you may be still responsible for damages.
If I'm understanding correctly, two were in the apartment, the landlord threw you out, and now wants to sue you for rent that the one remaining behind may have incurred.In any case, regardless as to details, if both your names were on the least, you are most likely both liable. You may consult with...

This probably depends on the laws of your state. In Massachusetts, there have been rulings that, if a deposit is paid by a governmental agency, the deposit gets returned to the tenant. It's likely the same result with a deal entirely between private parties. Massachusetts law specifically states...
  Actually, it's quite simple. You need to contact the housing authority of your choice at http://www.hud.gov/offices/pih/pha/contacts/index.cfm
security deposits protect the landlord if the tenant fails to pay rent or causes damage to the rental premises beyond normal wear and tear. a renter can not choose to pay rent with any portion of that deposit.
Residents can't alter their living space without permission.
Answer . Most of the time the answer is “Yes.” However, if you notify the landlord right away, he can usually have an appliance repair person there very quickly so you don’t lose any food items. If your refrigerator "died" and it was not your fault, that is you did not improperly operate it,...
The average gas bill for a three bedroom apartment in Indiana would  be approximately one hundred and seven dollars a month. This is for  cooking, heating, and hot water.
In many states it is illegal for a landlord to hold from a prospective tenant any material facts in the rental of that unit, such as that a death occurred in that unit. But the tenant would have to prove damages that resulted from the withholding of that material fact.
Answer . It depends on what state the two 17 year olds live. They need to check to see what their state's "Age of Majority" is. Most states have laws that establish 18 years of age as the age of a person who can legally enter into contracts. If that is the case here, then it is possible to as the...
I am living in an apartment community in Costa Mesa. This is a big apartment community owner, and have hundreds of apartment communities. I am moving to a different state and wanted to check what would be the consequences if: - I don't pay the lease break fee and move out - I don't pay the...
The general rule is up to two adults for each bedroom. A bedroom is a room of a least 70 square feet, with at least one window.
That really depends. In Pakistan it could cost like a dollar for a small business, while in Manhattan it could get to a few dollars per square foot. Next time try being more specific.
It depends on your own circumstances.
A local realtor can answer your question.

Since the default has nothing to do with the landlord, and is not his fault, you would be breaching the lease, and would be liable for the rent until the end of the lease, unless he rerents it.
Lovely as this finish is, it is time consuming and quite expensive, not to mention not very easy to clean. I would not recommend doing this treatment in a hallway, kitchen, bathroom or any other high-traffic area... but it would lend a certain luxuriousness to a bedroom or even a formal living room....
Get it in writing. By the way, your heat pump won't work if covered in snow, but then, if it's cold enough to snow, it won't work well anyway.
  == Answer ==   it depends on how many children you have and if you want two to share a room or not.
  To be evicted means to be put out. If a person that is renting fails to uphold their part of the agreement by not paying rent or by destroying something or playing their music too loud, etc.. and they fail to meet the terms of the lease then they can be evicted or told to move out. First there...
The average monthly cost of power varies by state. However, the  range is $74.62-$203.15 per month. The Pacific region of the United  States average electric bill is $122.71.
That depends on the laws of your state. I suggest you repost your question, indicating which state the property is in.
Yes, although the landlord is obligated to attempt to mitigate his loss, in this case by trying to re-rent the unit.
Some landlords perform extensive background checks on prospective tenants, some do not. Eventually, a person who has been evicted would find a landlord who does not bother. Also, explaining the situation up front might help. Whether to rent to an individual is entirely at the discretion of the...
  160 000 U.S. dollars = 79 598.0299 British pounds
  That is entirely at the landlords discretion, as long as no discrimination is involved in the decision. (Race, sex etc.)
They leased an apartment for about a year.I want the cupcake with the least amount of frosting on it.
Read your lease agreement. Find out the dates it was agreed upon  to pay the rent. Go to your county and find the Landlord/Tenant  laws. If the rent is due on the 1st of each month, and the lease  agrees with a 5 day grace period. You can legally file in rent  court the 2nd day of the month. You...
I don't believe any state has a limit.

Call your local Housing Authority, which handles Section 8. You will find the number in your government phone book.
I only know Massachusetts law, but we have one of the most strict security deposit laws around, so this should be good for any state.If you evict for non-payment, the tenant still owes the remaining months, although you have an obligation to attempt to rent the place. If you don't, then you can...

Depends on why you need to use the space. Licenses by definition are for an indefinite period that either party technically should have the right to cancel at any time. Leases typically have a specified time/term. The "Licensor" (the "landlord" under a license) retains control this way, to terminate...
Probably, but first, you should call the local Board of Health or Building Inspector to document the situation.
You have an obligation to pay rent until the foreclosure sale actually happens.
If you break the lease, your landlord can charge you the amount of rent for the apartment or unit during the time it is left unoccupied up until the dwelling has been rented out or until your lease expires, whichever comes first.
There is no such thing as registering your property as section 8 property. What you are asking is "how do you accept section 8 vouchers from your tenants?" You can list your house with the local housing authority in your area. Keep in mind that your house or rental unit must meet federal housing...

A security deposit is an advanced deposit that is generally retained by the landlord during your tenancy. The landlord is obligated to return such deposit within 30 days with interest earned, if any, and/or an itemized list of expenses for which the landlord is offsetting the deposit amount (for...
Find a private renter, not a corporate owned building, or go to an apartment finder. They know which places will allow you to live there.
Yes. The relationship between the landlord and bank has nothing to do with the tenant.
Do you mean moving to another apartment owned by the same landlord? If so, then I suppose that the parties have agreed to leave the terms of the lease the same, and just transfer the lease to a different unit. Nothing wrong with that, but it might be a better idea to sign a new lease.
Hopefully, she wrote him a letter stating why she was not paying. If she did not, a judge would likely still find that she was not obligated to pay. Most of the time, a judge will ignore a familial relationship, and treat the parties as simply landlord and tenant. However, with a single family house...
If they asked you on the application, and you lied, then, yes, technically, that is a lease violation that gives the landlord the right to terminate the lease. But, you make a very good point - why would they bother at this point? Sometimes, big management companies have hardline policies because...
You could make a copy of the recording and file it with a police complaint naming the individuals who entered your locked room. The police may be able to give you some advice. However, I am sure they will tell you to move. You haven't added enough detail such as the nature of the dwelling. You may...
  For a one bedroom apartment, yes, that is a good sized apartment. I am a landlady and have owned several properties in the past.
  == Answer ==     Sure. Just find an apartment that will allow a tenant with a discharged bankruptcy.
3 bedroom apartments in Spain have variable prices depending on the city and 'barrio' (imagine london). Typically rents start from around 300-400epcm in the poorer cities, up to around 1200e pcm for a standard flat in standard area with anything above that a quality premuim. You can find cheaper...
It is certainly possible for a family with a child to live in a one bedroom apartment, and in some parts of the world it would not be unusual for a family with numerous children to live in a single room. Of course, there is a lack of privacy in such an arrangement. But privacy is a luxury which not...
It depends on the proposed tenant's past rental locations. If they have rented in a larger corporate owned apartment complex, any grossly late rent payments probably have been reported to a credit bureau.If they have only rented from private parties or smaller complexes, then the best method is to...
Look at the lease and the policy (who is loss payee....). Normally TIBs wind up the LL's property but during the term the T is obligated to insure (LL normally would only insure the "shell" since TIB varies from tenant to tenant). Then if there's a loss the question is how are the proceeds to be...

You really should do your homework yourself. What would your teacher think about cheating like this? And, nobody writes leases like that.
It depends on the laws in your locality, whether your tenancy has been terminated, whether a "stay" was issued by the eviction court, and what your obligations are during a "stay". Since you don't say where you are, and although it sounds like there was a "stay" that has 2 weeks left to go, it is...
The landlord could file a lawsuit, and obtain a judgment against you, which would then appear on your credit report, staying there for years. Also, some courts will issue a warrant in your name for contempt.

Yes, only if you left your assets on the property past the date your lease term ended or were evicted
If it meets the standards for section 8.
Yes, you can. But, if the reason you've fallen behind is a reduction in income, you should have reported that to the housing authority, who can reduce the amount you pay, sometimes retroactively.
Most state building codes require that a tenant have a thermostat. You should ask your local building inspector or board of health.

You can't apply a last month's rent deposit unless this is your last month (or, in your case, the last two months). I don't know what state you are in, but it is unusual to give a two month deposit. If you have a rental agreement that requires 60 days notice to terminate, I guess that would make...
Rent is considered a shelter expense, or can be considered a utility expense. If you're thinking of it from a business perspective for accounting, rent is considered an operational expense.
  == Answer ==     I have never heard of this, but, you can go to your local City Hall (get a friend to take a picture of the outside of the building and where you live) and form a complaint at City Hall. In most States (in Canada as well) the City can force the Owner of the property to...
It depends on the terms of the agreement that was signed when you became Joint Tenants. If there was no clause that says they are in default if they don't pay rent, they are in the clear. Though, that is a very rare case. You could take it to a lawyer, since there is, most likely, no clause...
