QUESTIONS

  • I am renting an apartment that had significant water damage from the tenant above. This happened on 07/22/2017. We currently still have no ceiling in our closet, there is still a leak in the closet. The carpet pad has been removed and the bedroom carpet needs to be replaced. I have already tripped on the carpet and luckily not hurt, but the new owners since 9/7/2017 are not repairing our unit. Can I use uninhabitable living conditions to break my lease?
  • I got divorced and in the decree it did not grant me permission to change my name. I took the decree to the Soc Sec office and the still processed it. I have a new Soc card and drivers license with my maiden name. But keep having trouble as it was never officially changed in the courts. Do I have to file for a name change and pay the fee or is there a way to add it into the decree so I can officially go back to my maiden name?
  • As a 67 yr. old retiree with an income of 11,645 yearly from S.S. and a small retirement pension, are these monies subject to credit card debt collection? Other than two older vehicles, I have no assets.

  • I have a ten year maintenance agreement with XXXXX, Inc dated 4/22/2016, for a twice a year maintenance service on my air conditioner / furnace which they installed for my home. I paid $1600.00 for this service. (This comes to $80.00 per service) and I received five services. When the sixth service was due (April 2019) I called for an appointment and their phone is shut off. I called their offices in Tucson, Pheonix and Glendale, all their phones have been shut off and the Tucson office is locked. I can't find anyone and they still owe me $1200.00 and I don't know what to do.

How can they charge me when Im current and they asked me to leave?

  • Since July we have had a scorpion problem. We have continuously notified the office by letter each time we find a scorpion, we have even brought some into the office. The manager agreed to let us break our lease without payment on our behalf with a 30 day notice. 5 days after the agreement was made that manager had been let go and a new manager took over who had no idea about the agreement. Now they are saying the old manager did not take the proper steps to let us break our lease and refuses now to let us leave. We have 3 children under 8,I am pregnant and my husband was stung. What now?
  • My fiances' ex-wife received over $100,000 in an informal inheritance- her and her brother sold property and split the equity. His payments are current and we see his son regularly. Would her receiving the inheritance change his child support obligation?
