What would you like to do?
My parents owe me back rent how can I make them pay?
You can take them to court if you have a contract with them. If you want to keep a good relationship with them, you may just want to talk with them about it.

If a parent signs over his parental rights and already owes back child support will he still have to pay the back pay for child support?
Answer . Yes, the back support will still be owed, unless the custodial parent agrees to 'forgive' it.
They can do that legally, but that is just wrong. I would think this is their way of teaching you how to handle a budget. When you move out it will cost a lot more.
The estate of the deceased is...of course that may essentially be simply a reduction of what the children would get. But the tax does not go away..the property owes… it and if it must be sold to collect it, by the estate (or the tax jurisdcition), it has to be, before clear title can go to anyone else.
If a property owner owes back taxes on a house and the person who lives in the house doesnt pay rent can the landlord put you out?
Absolutely.....your obligation is to pay the rent...what he does or doesn't do....or when he does it, is absolutely of no concern to you. And your failure to pay rent does not… change anything with his not paying the tax collector. That could be the reason he is having trouble! Paying rent is your obligation. Most landlords ding your credit (I would) after being five days late. I start eviction on day ten. If you are late twice, no chance of staying.
If you were evicted for non-payment of rent, your landlord COULD file a lien against you for the unpaid amount.
I'm in the same boat with a relative. If they are having trouble affording things, it usually is poor money management and/or that they want things that are beyond their means…. Hard as it is, loaning these people money is like giving it to them. You will not ever see it paid back. Once you learn this for certain, do not give them any more, ending the vicious cycle of supporting this behavior. If you have lent someone money, you need to be persistent in reminding them. Often times people may simply 'forget' that they owe you. And of course it can be rather uncomfortable to tell friends or loved ones that they owe you money. One option is to use web-based reminder services such as http://www.PayMePlz.com to send automatic email, sms and voice reminders to people who owe you money. If you have a written agreement or other paperwork, you can take them to small claims court or put a lien on their property. Still, chances of repayment are slim to none.
It would depend on the contract you had
In many cases yes. If you purchased the vehicle through a business, read the sales contract for wording about defaults.
Even if you do not have a written contract you still have a verbal contract if someone has agreed to rent you an apartment for a specific price. Verbal contracts are als…o enforceable (although not as easily as written contracts, since there may be no concrete evidence about what exactly was agreed). In any event, if you agreed to pay rent, then you do owe the rent that you agreed to pay, contract or no contract.
: Hi. : So, I am a 19 year old full time uni student. : I pay my own uni fees, buy my own books, buy/pay for all my own things (public transport, clothes, doctors…, meals - even when I'm out with my parents, etc). : I do have a part time job, but like I said I pay for all my own things, I am currently saving to have my wisdom teeth out, get my licence/a car, also saving so I can go on a trip somewhere. And with my spare money I like to go out with my friends to movies, clubbing, dinner, etc. : I don't mind paying a bit of board to my parents, because after all they do buy groceries and keep a roof over my head. They also don't have a big cash flow, but they do have a few investment properties. : But I was just wondering if I should pay board, and if so how much is fair? : Thanks.
Make you? No But, they are under no obligation to supply you with anything except the minimum needs, such as only a light in your room, but no power outlets, and a windu…p alarm clock. Laundry can include only specific clothes.
If kids are over 18, absolutely they can. I always paid my parents room and board [ food ] after I was 18. I paid 25 % of my take-home pay , whether I made $600/ month at my f…irst job as a nurse's aide, or $1,200 a month after I graduated nursing school , til I made enough to pay my own rent utilities etc and got my own place. I also paid my own car insurance, and followed the usual house rules , cleaned the house on Saturdays and went to church on Sunday with my parents. Freedom isn't free . Follow the house rules , or go off on your own, then you can pay your own bills and do as you please. Another Perspective Once a child reaches sufficient age to be "responsible", it is reasonable to require that the child participate in his/her expenses and to learn how to pay his/her own way in life. Responsibility is learned, it doesn't come naturally. Teaching responsibility is part of a parent's job. On the other hand, if parents wishes to participate in the financial expenses while a child continues an education that is entirely their choice.
Yes. Most landlords do want their rent money and will only allow a certain period of time, before they have a tenant evicted for nonpayment of rent.
It depends on the state you live in. Some states allow the custodial parent to opt out of child support. Other states don't give you that option, and will collect the child su…pport even if the custodial parent refuses to accept it.
In such a situation the support order will remain valid and collectible. When the person is released from custody the child support enforcement division for the state will… take whatever action required to recover the monies owed. The matter of a non custodial parent being in a position where they are unable to honor a support order does not change the terms of said order. For that to happen the non custodial parent must petition the court to have the order amended or rescinded.
I would guess that your situation is that you will not be able to pay your rent if you take time off work in order to appear in court. The problem with this situation is that …you pay rent every month, and so no matter when you take time off work, it will affect your ability to pay your rent (unless for some reason this current month has been unusually expensive for you). It would seem that your best approach, if your finances are that precarious, would be to try to schedule a vacation day that will allow you to appear in court and still be paid your usual amount. You can certainly petition the court for a postponement but I don't think you have a strong case, unless you can show that you are not just putting off the problem of paying rent from this month to next month, and even then, the judge may not be sympathetic to a person who has no savings, no reserve, and spends every penny the instant he or she obtains it. A prudent person knows that there will sometimes be unusual expenses in life, or interruptions of income, and prepares.
