QUESTIONS

  • I am a tenant and the ownr/landlord is losing the property to foreclosure and he just called me today 09-08-08 and told me I need to beout asap by the end odf the week. The question I have is can he do this the property is due to go back to the bank 09-29-08 I plan on begin out then but can he throw me out sooner?
  • If the complex I live in says I am an unauthorized tenant even though I pay rent and get my mail here can they tell me I have to leave without a eviction notice do I have any rights?
  • Can Child Support take my school loans and grants? If it is my only income at the moment?
  • My live-in boyfriend was served a Protective Order yesterday. The police explained it to him and gave him time to collect some personal belongings. How long does he have to come back and collect the rest of his stuff from the house?
  • My Park charged me a $5 per day late fee on unpaid late fees. Is this legal in Arizona? The park applies any payment made to the amount due, thus guaranteeing that any payment made that is less than the entire amount owed will be subject to late fees for the entire time additional money is owed. I believe there are laws preventing that practice for mortgages but I'm unsure about rentals or leases. Shouldn't payments first be applied toward the monthly rent or lease and then any additional payment be applied to late fees? And isn't it illegal to charge interest or fees on late fees?
  • My 25yr old daughter was with a guy she now has two kids with. He's had her arrested and put a order of protection on her for him and their daughter. She is going thru family court to get back her parenting rights. While this was going on she was pregnant with their 2nd child except he didn't know, now he knows and is requesting.a paternity test. Can he take this new baby away from her? How can she protect her new baby from him? I'm afraid he will take Jim from her and it will break her heart. She's a good mom & he's a good liar.
