  • I recently found out I am paying for the electric in the laundry room that everyone else uses. Is this considered a breach in contract, if I pay my own utilities. The realty company said they will take $25 off the rent each month or to move out, is this violating my rights as a tenant?
  • A windstorm took out several sections of the roof and about 50 feet of the brick wall that surrounds the backyard of the house I'm renting. How long dose the landlord have to fix everything? If it rains I'm worried that there will be damage to my property in the house and with the fence down that my pets are going to get out or attacked by wild animals.
  • There is a huge tree between my trailer & next door. It was here when I bought trailer. I am told the tree is my responsible, but it is on the trailer courts land. The tree sheds leaves like crazy & we were just informed that it is up to us to rack and throw in trash. We have maintenance here & they do nothing, but ride the little cars the trailer court supplys.What I need to know is it my responsabilty, to rack. I am 64yrs.and not in that good health. Can you let me know if it is up to me to keep tree up or Trailer court. Thank-You RS.
  • Can I take a part-time job while receiving unemployment compensation?
  • Can I install grab bars, lower my countertops or make other needed modifications against my landlord’s objections?
