  • If the Landlord issues a 10 day non-compliance letter, and the tenant has already sent a letter stating they are breaking the lease and leaving one month early, can the Landlord still hold tenant responsible for the last month of rent, if tenant cannot remedy the non-compliance issues in 10 days and has to move out?

  • I have a 9 year old child and share custody with her monther from whom I am divorced. I am now applying for social security benefits and have learned that my child is eligible for benefits. Since I have my daughter almost 50% of the time and maintain a residence where she has a separate room, clothing and articles, would the benefit paid to the child go to the mother? I don't feel this is fair since I am responsible for her medical expenses, child support, etc. Can you please advise.
  • I am curious about the 90 day requirement to file a lawsuit for a deficiency on a foreclosed home. In my case, I had a purchase money loan and a second mortgage from the same lender. After the foreclosure, the lender has continued to keep the second mortgage in an "open" status. Is the lender barred from suing on the second mortgage past 90 days of foreclosure or do they have up to the 6 year AZ statute of limitations to sue?
