Can a landlord harass you for rent when the rent isn't even due?
A landlord cannot legally harass you for rent if your rent is not in arrears.
Your question is not clear, is the landlord baggering you for the rent or is it in regards to something else? Is the rent late? Your rent is due every month (or week), regardless of landlord behavior. But the landlord cannot harass tenants, regardless of reason. They can evict for non-payment, following the procedures dictated by the laws in your state. That said, if the landlord is abusive they can be taken to a standard… Read More
What does happen if a landlord keep on taking rent even if the landlord had filed for bankruptcy himself?
The landlord's bankruptcy has nothing to do with the tenant. The tenant still owes the rent.
Why not? Even family members can rent to one another.
Yes. Your income is unrelated to your rent.
Yes. This practice is called subleasing. If the landlord doesn't allow for subleasing then the tenant can be evicted.
My friends landlord lowered their rent for them and then we moved in with them and now their moving away can the landlord raise our rent back up?
If your friends landlord lowered the rent for him/her and then after moving in with him/her, he/she decides to move out, then the landlord will most likely raise the rent again.
Your answer depends on what you want to do. If the rent is paid for the full term of the lease agreement, then the landlord cannot rent the unit until the rent runs out. The landlord may want access to the unit to confirm that everything in the unit remains undamaged. If the landlord wants to rent the unit just because it's vacant, the landlord should refund the 'unused' rent to the departed tenant.
He isn't. Even if a landlord file for bankruptcy, he is still entitled to collect the rent from tenants. If the property is in foreclosure, the landlord still have the right to collect rent from the tenant, until such control is passed on to the foreclosing entity. Conversely, if the tenant files for bankruptcy he is still obligated to pay the rent to landlord, although he may be no longer obligated to pay any back… Read More
Your landlord can evict you and sue for back rent.
The tenant owes the rent to the landlord up the day of a foreclosure sale.
Can your landlord evict you if you are behind 2 months rent and have always been late for the past 3 years?
A landlord may legally evict any time you are late with the rent. Even if you are just one day late one time.
Ah, the age old issue of "I didn't live there, you shouldn't get to keep rent." The issue with this logic is that it forgets that the landlord cannot re-rent the apartment during your tenancy. So even though you did not live there, you occupied the space contractually, thus preventing the landlord from opening it to others. So, yes. A landlord can keep your first and last months rent even if you did not reside… Read More
If the house is being foreclosed can the landlord sue you for tresspassing even when you pay your rent?
If you are paying rent then you are tenat and subject to and protectd by tenanncy laws. The specific laws vary widely by region, but in general if you have currently paid your rent in full you can remain in resedence; unless the landlord has other cause to evict you.
IF you owe the landlord rent, why wouldn't or shouldn't he be able to sue you!
Generally there is no point in suing a property manager for not collecting rent. It should be noted that the tenant is responsible for paying his rent on time. It is not the responsibility for the landlord to collect the rent. If the landlord does not collect rent and the tenant should send it to the landlord by mail or in person.
I have to pay rent to my Landlord
Tenants do have to pay their landlords even if the property is under foreclosure - until the foreclosing agency or entity takes total control of the property. When this happens they become the landlord, to which the rent is due accordingly. Whichever landlord has controlled the property can still collect rent from the tenant, and can still evict a tenant for failure to pay the rent.
This depends on the policy of your landlord. In most leases it states when, where, and how you pay your rent.
If there is a lease then the landlord cannot raise the rent for the term of it. But on a month-to-month rent, in most states, the landlord can raise the rent as high as he likes.
Generally he can go back as far as you owe the rent. But a landlord can only evict you for not paying the rent, not for money that you owe for back rent. If your landlord accepts your money for the correct amount of rent, he cannot evict you for the back amount, but he can sue you for that.
How long by law does a landlord after 15 days late on rent does a landlord have to give you to get rent paid before the can ask you to move?
A landlord can, at any time, initiate eviction proceedings against the tenant if he fails to pay his rent on time. Normally the landlord does this after the fifth day of default.
Rent is not covered under bankruptcy: a landlord still has the right to collect rent and evict tenants who don't pay.
If your landlord is selling the house you have to continue paying the rent for it, whether to the old landlord or to the new one. Your old landlord will give you notice about when they have sold the property, and the new landlord will give you instructions on how to pay them the rent.
Is it legal for a landlord to raise your rent on an oral month to month bases if your rent was 500 and he wants to raise it to 950?
Firstly, some areas have rent control. Contact your local Department of Housing to find out. Even without rent control, there are probably laws in your area about how a landlord can raise the rent. It probably must be in writing. It probably must be with 30 days' notice (or more). The fact it is oral doesn't mean he can raise the rent orally.
Yes! Rent is a source of income for the landlord, and he/she must report these earnings to the IRS. You must report all earnings, even gambling earnings! This is why some landlords give discounts for rent payments made with cash, so they can fudge what they earned because there is no real record of the transaction.
A landlord can raise rent at a rate determined by the owner of the property. Increases may or may not be detailed in your current lease agreement. Only the landlord can place an amount of rent on property owned by the landlord. It is usually priced according to location and amenities. Landlord and owner are one and the same.
If you are paying rent it is a debit. If you are a landlord receiving rent its a credit.
yes your landlord can.
You can be sued for back rent even if there were no lease. Many tenants rent homes on oral leases, called month-to-month leases. As long as the landlors and the tenant come to an agreement that the landlord will let the tenant have the apartment for a certain amount of rent each month, it becomes a binding lease agreement even though there is no written lease. Even if a landlord let a tenant in without… Read More
What if your landlord has not picked up the rent in a month and now its the next month and rent is due and you still don't hear from them?
Just keep the money in the bank. No matter what scheme the landlord may be working on, if you have the rent money you have nothing to fear. Make sure you always get a receipt AT THE MOMENT OF PAYMENT even if you pay by check. If six months go by and you hear nothing from the landlord then you may wish to start investigating to see if he died.
Concievably, yes. If the tenant got a deal on the apartment, and can find someone who is willing to pay even more than the rent, even just to be a roommate, there's nothing illegal about that.
Yes--unless you and the landlord made an agreement not to evict in writing, the landlord waives no right to evict you simply by accepting a partial rent payment. However, making even a partial payment shows good faith on your part. I suggest you work with the landlord prior to eviction--evictions are costly and complicated.
Once you have moved out of your rental unit, as symbolized by the return of the key, you are no longer allowed in that unit. Even if you have a duplicate key, you are returning the unit to the landlord by virtue of the fact that you are handing that landlord such key or number of keys you were issued. This allows the landlord to rent out the unit or to prepare it for rent… Read More
no Answer #2. During a lease, the landlord cannot increase the rent. You are in a contract. Otherwise, speaking generally, the landlord has freedom to increase the rent. He typically owes you 30 days' notice. If you are not renewing, surely you will be out before any rent increase could take effect.
Can a landlord enter premises and show rental if tenant is not paying rent and has refused permission?
If you are not paying rent - yes, absolutely the landlord can. If you aren't paying rent, your "refusal" has no legs to stand on.
Sure! The landlord can sue in civil court, not Landlord/Tenant Court, for this
Depends on the law where you are. In the UK a landlord cannot state 'no coloureds, no Irish' etc in rental advertisments. But presumably a landlord could refuse to rent and not give a reason.
If the landlord or representative of the landlord, such as an on-site manager acting on their behalf accepts any portion of the rent and they have already begun eviction proceedings, they will have to start over with the legal process if you are being evicted for not paying your rent.
The three day notice is also called "Fix or Quit". Which means in 72 hours you need to fix the breach, or quit the lease. If you pay the rent and the landlord accepts it, your leasehold continues. If you attempt to pay the rent and the landlord refuses it, keep a record of the date, time, and place (you may even wish to bring a witness with you). Refusing the rent, shows the landlord… Read More
What can I do if I have paid my half of rent on time but my cosigner hasn't and my landlord has refused to accept my half and is now threatening to evict us?
You can pay the rent in full and then it is up to you to collect the half from your cosigner or get evicted. Your landlord didn't rent you your half for half the rent. The landlord rented bouth of you the whole space for the whole amount.
If you are the tenant, and your former date is not on the lease, but still living there, then YOU are that person's landlord, and therefore YOU must file eviction proceedings as the Landlord would do on you.
Yes you can. Your landlord cannot use your last month's rent as security deposit and vice versa.
No the landlord cannot take rent if the apartment is in foreclosure He may should inform about the foareclosure and condtions in the lease
In most states a landlord cannot sue for future rent if they evicted you, as you did not voluntarily move out of the apartment.
Answer You should check the laws in your area. In most small claims courts there is a maximum amount that a plaintiff can sue for and it varies depending on where you live. This is the maximum that a landlord can sue for in back rent, if in fact you owe it. Answer There is no limit to the amount of back rent a landlord can sue for. If you lived in a property and… Read More
This is somewhat you mean by owing rent. If you were evicted for nonpayment of rent than the landlord could sue you for the money you owe in back rent. Since there was no lease involved, your landlord cannot sue for future rent.
Can a eviction writ of possession be filed if the outstanding rent balance on the original judgment has been paid?
Okay, let's clarify something here: An EVICTION is a court hearing initiated by a landlord for violation of lease terms, for example, non-payment of rent A WRIT OF POSSESSION is a court ordered WRIT (that is, an order signed by a Judge) for the landlord to take possession of the rental property. The landlord must obtain such writ after he wins a judgment in the case (this is done either by default judgment or after… Read More
rent due to landlord
The risk of cosigning on a lease is that the cosigner is responsible for the rent for the leased property even if the other signers do not pay the rent. The landlord can go after one or all of the cosigners on a lease to get rent paid if the lease is not paid for the full term.
A landlord does not need a license to rent to you. They just need to own the property.
