The landlord must give you a copy of your lease within 30 days. There is usually a paper you both sign saying you received it. If it is lost you are not liable to stay in the apartment. On the other hand, this also means the landlord can evict you or raise your rent on you without warning because of no proper documentation.
This varies from landlord to landlord. If you are staying in full fledged apartment, the insurance will be taken care of by the apartment owner itself. otherwise if you staying in independant house, we have take care of insurance cover for strom damage, flooding.
Possibly. It depends whose fault it was. If the roof fell on the tenant's dog because of termite damage, the landlord is at fault. If the tenant fell off the roof while drunk, probably not.
Your landlord's insurance should take care of it. Legally your landlord is liable as they own the tree and supposedly should have had it checked and trimmed to prevent that.
Yes. The fact that you co-signed mandates your liability. It does not matter that you do not live in the apartment.
If the accident was caused by the negligence of any party, then they are liable.
You will be held legally responsible for the lost rent on the apartment PROVIDED that the landlord makes a reasonable effort to re-rent the apartment. A reasonable effort would be considered running an ad in the newspaper, placing a Craigslist ad, posting the apartment on apartments.com, etc. However, the landlord is not obligated to lower the rent or rent the apartment to tenants who do not meet the landlord's reasonable screening standards.
Check your state's landlord tenant laws. In some states the tenant is liable if they were aware of a problem and did not report it to the landlord, did nothing to prevent the problem or if they are responsible for causing the problem.
Yes. An apartment must be habitable. You would likely only win the cost of relocating to a new apartment. Contact the local board of health. Take pictures of the mold and give the landlord a chance to clean it up. It is law that the building has to clean out all mold in living areas..
You will be liable for the rent until the end of the lease, except if the landlord rents the apt. before that time. Some states may have their own laws on this, but in the state of IN. that is how it is suppose to work. The landlord is also suppose to make an effort to rent that particular apt. Jeanne
Depends on why the accident happened and where. If the owner created a risk, then the landlord would be liable. If the tenant created the risk or failed to notify the owner of the risk, then the tenant may be liable, unless the accident happened outside of the area rented to the tenant (e.g., a common hallway in an apartment building would be the responsibility of the owner).
That would depend on who's angry wife your talking about. If the tenants wife damages your property or your landlords property then the tenants wife is liable for those damages. Due to the extension of common law you can also be held financially liable for actions of your spouse. The landlord would have no control over the tenants wife nor her actions and could not be held liable. If the Landlords wife came over and damaged your property or the landlords property then the Landlord and or the landlord wife would be financially liable.
Generally if there's no contract or lease, then the relationship is subject to standard Landlord-Tenancy laws in your state.
I am the person posting question....Just found out that my leasee, without my prior knowledge, now has an illegal living in the apartment I intially rented to him. If I know about the status, am I financially liable as to being fined by US/or locals?
No. A minor cannot be party to a contract.
More than likely, the apartment complex will not be liable. This is probably stated in some paper work signed when moving in.Ê
The tenant is liable. Thats a good reason to by renters insurance.
In the past, we would have said no. But, a recent Massachusetts case ruled that the landlord was liable for a vicious dog owned by the tenant who he knew was dangerous.
Yes, you can break your lease if your landlord refuses to fix things, as long as this is specified in the lease. Your landlord is liable for keeping the home in working order and safe. Contact an attorney to help you with the lease.
If the tenant damages the property he is liable for such damages. The Landlord may or may not have his own insurance for this purpose but the tenant is liable. If the Tenant has his own insurance (Renter's Insurance) then the Tenant may file a claim and damages will be covered by that insurance.
In a word.... YES...... Your landlord has a duty to not cause damage to the property of others
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 civil court.
The Apt. comp. is responsible!!!!!
No ... you only co-signed for an individual, not a piece of property. When the friend departed the premises, your obligation as his/her co-signer also ended.
