If I move 3-4 months before my lease is up and don't pay the remaining rent can the landlord put a lien on my credit?

Yes, if you break your lease, the landlord will take you to court, and will likely be awarded whatever rent you owe. If you do not pay the judgement, they have the option of putting a lien on your credit. Your best option would be to carefully read your lease, then talk to your lanlord about leaving early. If you find a new tenent that the landlord agrees to rent to, you may be able to leave with no negative consequences.

Not if you listed your landlord as a creditor on your bankruptcy petition and that there is excess property to pay your landlord after secured creditors and your exemptions. Unpaid rent is an unsecured debt. If a judgment lien is filed, you can avoid it if filed shortly before bankruptcy filing.

If mom loaned money to buy something of value and you have a note to repay her can a 2nd party commer landlord file a lien against those items to repay rent that you owe landlord tx Who has 1st lien?

The first thing you should do is to pay the rent. The lien means that you cannot sell the property without the proceeds going to the landlord. In any case, since you still owe your mom the money for the purchase, you can't sell the stuff anyways. Keep paying your mom, and start paying the landlord what you owe. Keep copies of the checks and good records. Re: Who has 1st Lien? Everything depends on who has already placed a lien against the 'item(s) of value'. If your mom didn't register your 'promissary note' to repay her in the county recorder's office and get first lien position against the item(s), then the landlord may have filed a lien and taken first lien position. The landlord has legal right to file a lien against your property for rent owed through contract, regardless if they are placed in the first, second, or whatever lien position. The fact is the item(s) had the lien(s) attached to them to limit your ability to collect any proceeds from the sale of the item(s) before the lien amount(s) are satisfied.

Who owns the vehicle you or the lien holder?

Well, you own the vehicle subject to the lien. You cannot sell or refinance the vehicle until the lien holder is paid. If you don't pay the lien, the lien holder can repossess the vehicle. So you own it subject to your paying the loan.

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.

Your rights to not pay rent?

No such thing as the right not to pay rent: whenever you are renting from a landlord you have to pay rent or leave-- plain and simple. Now, what people mostly address is certain tenant rights, including to have a safe, decent, healthy, and functional place to live. If any of those rights are breached by the landlord, there are remedies the tenant can take-- but failing to pay rent is not one of them. He can either sue the landlord, or, in the case of essential repairs, given the proper notice of at least seven days before the next rent is due, offset the costs of repair from the rent. Keep in mind that the landlord could still evict you if you do this, but if it's for essential repairs, such as the water heater, the landlord is likely to lose the case and the tenant can sue for up to three months of rent abatement and/or other damages as applicable by state law. Another common issue about rental rights: if a landlord is under foreclosure do I still have to pay rent to him? Yes, you do, as long as the landlord has control over the property, and the landlord can evict you if you don't pay.
