  • Is it legal to charge monthly for unpotable water? And how long can a mobile home park not supply any water to the space renters
  • I have co signed for my adult son for the last 3 years. A new property management company took over the lease for the last 3 month. The new property management company did not inform me that they took over the lease. My son gave a 30 day notice on January 5 2018. He paid January rent. The new property management company says he is responsible for February rent as well. They are informing me now that I need to pay February because I am a co signer. (My son is now a student and can not afford the rent) Question: Are we responsible for February 2018 rent because the 30 days went from 01/05/2018?
  • Started a year lease (8/2019) In my current apartment. The first 4 months we’ve been having constant plumbing issues where the shower has over flowed with sewage back 3-4 times a single month. In the result of damaging/ruining personal items. All of the rugs destroyed by sewage flooding out of bathroom into hallway and entering bedroom. I’ve lost shoes, clothes, electronics, furniture etc.. with that being said, their has been constant headaches and migraines due to the horrid smell. I need a better understanding of the responsibilities for a landlord, in the state of Arizona. Rent Deduction?
  • If I am trying to evict my roommate, do I follow the landlord/tenant directions for an evection, or are there other directions?
  • Our lease on our Apt. ended and we had a three month extension. The three months are up and we are moving. the Apt are coming at us saying we are liable for another months rent. The apt. is claiming a 30 day vacancy notice but the lease is already up. i also had one roomate leave and another move in during the lease period. Teh question I have is can they hold us responsible for the one month extra rent?
  • How long after your final hearing, does it take to receive your divorce decree?
  • We had flooding from recent storm. Walls got wet, carpet got wet, and light fixture not working. Landlord said let dry out and things will be fine. No repairs. Only cut open wall to worst leak and put a dryer in there. No one has come back. That 9/8/14. Today is 9/10/14. Should we give 5 or 10 day notice to fix? It now smells moldy in here, and I have to cook dinner in semi dark. Already frustrated because we have roaches! I have allergies and don't want to be exposed to them or to mold.
  • My friend has been living in a house that is owned by someone no longer able to care for herself.He was living in the residence helping the lady with taking care of the house and chores that needed to be done in exchange for rent. When the lady became sick and went to the hospital my friend was allowed stay and keep up the house. Before leaving the hospital she was deemed not able to make decisions or take care of herself. A fiduciary was appointed to handle all of her property and now he wants to put the house up for sale. He then ordered my friend out on the house in 2 days. Is that ok?
  • I received a traffic ticket in 1986 for no registration. I live in CA and due to the AZ ticket, I can not get my license in CA. Is there a staute of limitations? It is now Oct 2008. It has been 22 years. Thank you.
