  • I received an email saying where to leave the keys and that inspection would be done the next day when I was never aware that I had to leave the property I was renting so I called the number given in the email and was told I was sent a letter back in August notifying me of action. they said letter was received but we had no idea of what letter. now we have to get out in 5 days since they said we already had 60 days to move out or next step will be an eviction notice from court which fees will have to be paid by me.wha can I do?

  • We are parents of a defiant & verbally aggressive & threatening 15 year old. A recent conflict ended with me as his adoptive stepdad giving him the choice to either work on better behavior or we would need to find alternate living for him. He chose to leave the house and is staying at various friends houses. What obligations do we as parents have to ensure a safe living environment and can we legally force him to return home?
  • I have been in the rental house in AZ for more than 5 years. Now that I am leaving the landlord say's they are charging me late fee from past rent over the last five years. Can they do this even thoe they never said or mention rent was late and there was not late fee asked for. But in the lease it does say there is a late fee if rent is late but has never told me rent was ever late or ever ask for late fee's before me giving my notice to leave
