I'm not a lawyer, but I'll attempt a general answer. You can't sue the landlord for breach of contract if your name isn't on the lease. But, if you're suing him for negligence (for example, if he failed to maintain the stairs and you fell), it doesn't matter if you're a legal tenant or just a visitor. Also, in many cities, if you sublet from a legal tenant, you have the same rights they do. Probably best to consult a lawyer. If you don't have money, the legal aid society in your town should be able to help you.

Can a landlord remove somebody without a tenancy agreement?

Can a landlord remove somebody without a tenancy agreement? Sure!! A tenancy agreement, however, doesn't have to be written. As long as the landlord accepts money from a tenant for the right to live on the property or unit, the tenancy agreement exists. If the landlord wants to terminate the tenancy he may do so but only with proper notice. For example if the tenancy is month-to-month then the landlord can only terminate the tenancy if written notice is given at least 30 days before the next rent is due. If the tenancy is week-to-week, then a week's notice must be given before the next rent is due, to terminate such tenancy. A landlord may also remove someone whose name is not on a lease or any other tenancy agreement. This wouldn't require such notice because that type of person doesn't have the same rights as the original tenant.

What happens if you drive a rental you didn't take out?

In general, only authorized drivers as specified on the rental contract are allowed to drive rental cars. This includes the person whose name is on the contract, and any additional persons specified on the form. A spouse is often included automatically (best to ask). If you drive a rental car that you are not authorized by contract to drive, and something happens to the car, the person whose name is on the contract will be held responsible.

Do you have to pay rent to a landlord who's property is in default?

Yes, you have to pay rent to a landlord whose property is in default. As long as the landlord still has control over the property he can still collect rent from you and evict you if it's not paid. A foreclosure of a home is a matter between the owner of the home and his lender, not the tenant.

Can a landlord have a tenants car towed off property for non payment of rent?

Laws vary by state, but in most states, this would be illegal, and would subject the landlord to civil penalty, probably three months rent for a breach of quiet enjoyment. But it's not just a violation of the tenancy; it is a violation of the personal property rights of another person. The landlord can be sued for damages including the entire value of the car that was illegally removed, regardless of whose car it is.

Who should pay deductible from my renters insurance on APT rental due to water pipe burst Landlord or Tenant?

Regardless of the situation: renter, landlord, apartment building or condominium situation, the first priority is to address the clean-up. Then, phone your broker and turn the issue over to your broker, who will collect all the insurance participants to decide who pays for the clean-up. (Clean-up and paying for clean-up may be separate issues.) The insurance stakeholders will determine whose deductible is due.
