Question being was platiff (sons)correct in ambushing daughter at coffee meeting when she didn’t have legal rep and wasn’t told his attorney would be present
Seems u are required to note your forwarding address on your letter to vacate
A landlord cannot assume anything nor mail to anywhere u have not specifiedJuly 1, 2019 at 5:49 pm in reply to: Am I obligated to pay the remaining rent on a lease if a new tenant is found? #4165
Is your landlord will to let u go for a new tenant and new lease from them
Are u listed as residing there on the lease?
Did u sign anything with your company?
Even roommate situations require a legally filed notice of eviction. If it wasn’t served by the sheriff it’s not actually a true legal eviction if I understand things. As landlords ppl often send a 5 day notice to vacate and if the tenants doesn’t leave we are required to file a true eviction notice. Depending on any agreement with your employer such as if they owed u monies they could possibly withhold that pay. You could get it back through legal channels but hassle. Surely the paid the rent for June???
Since she does not have anything u can attach or garnish from small claims why spend the monies? She doesn’t evidently care about her credit rating or dings on her credit. Be glad she is gone!
We have a 7 day clause…to allow for vacationing relatives and friends… after that time the Landlord must be notified….and additional charges could be applied…. If you do an adendum make sure YOU and the TENANT both sign it.
Firstly Sec 8 doesnt “find” a tenant housing. A section 8 voucher is issued a voucher and has 60 days to find a place…and this cant be extended once… (that used to be the rules. When you rent to a sec 8 tenant the housing authority has no real jurisdiction over you or the tenant. the landlord is afforded the same rules that the lease imposes on the tenant. Sec 8 voucher holders are afforded NO extra exemptions from the LEASE you sign and file with the HUD when you sign all the papers. Make sure you send and itemized list of and cost of WHY you are witholding her deposit. You must do this within 30 days of the termination of the lease. If you dont have a forwarding address send copies to her at the address AND to HUD… she may backfire and accuse you of not notifying her of the reasons you are keeping her deposit and it can double on you… $800 for not complying also after court you may want to visit the HUD office and give the case worker copies of the rulings. If HUD paid you they may take back rent .. Unfortunately ver few are actually removed or have their vouchers revolked…otherwise the abuse wouldnt continue. Good Luck and remember PICTURES PICTURES before they move in and when they move out – do a walk through. do not enter the premises until the court allows YOU access….. Good Luck…. keep us informed. Also you have a right to screen your tenants even with a sec 8 voucher. its best to not let them move in until all the paper work etc is DONE!
Oops hit enter to fast. Did the Judge order the repairs? Why?
U should be allowed to evict on any lease violation
Yes let it fail
When u file for eviction include judgement for damages u may have to go to small claims but she should be shut down.
If u have a “passed” inspection and then damages were done u need to press this issue at eviction or on papers
We have a wonderful sec 8 tenant for years……this woman gives all a bad name
Remember to take pictures before move in and have a tenant check off a “ condition “ list easily found and printed from the internet signed!
Only problem I see is if u turned off HER account with Entergy and Swb. U would have to recover those cost in small claims. Entergy is pretty quick. But SWB is notorious for not billing on time etc.
A sec 8 tenant isn’t afforded any rights any other tenant has. She signed the lease when u went for paper signing right?
Good luckFebruary 16, 2018 at 6:23 pm in reply to: Claiming interest in property AFTER probate is closed and settled? #3904
No – no responses. we will just have to wait…its a he said she said…. now all of a sudden supposedly the cousin has some kind of “paper” I am waiting for a response from the HOA on WHO changed to lot ownership in their records and WHAT if any papers were supplied since the cousin hasnt offered anything up…. she waited 3 years. Ms Edna has paid taxes and HOA fees since the purchase of the lots back in the 70s…. will post if I get any responses. I just cant see how if they didnt file a claim after her death and during probate they could lay claim…but we will see….. Families….@#$@#$@!!
If he left things behind…you must get a right of possession of his things..it covers you incase he comes back and wants monetary payment for any clothes etc…
salt the shoots on your property
HAs she paid her rent? Dont laugh but this is a constant on Judge Judy…where a tenant sues the landlord for “their things” because the landlord changed the locks….. If she is paid up for the month and you changed the locks that is a NO NO…because you have not allowed her access.. Make sure you get things in TXT or Emails… the Mother has no bearing since she was not on the lease. You can post the first eviction notice…depending on the lease….What we had to do in the case of STUFF left was get a “possession” order allowing us to remove all the items – it protected us…even though the tenant was MIA for months…. What Parish are you in?
Nothing in writing…there was NO DEPOSIT paid because it was an exchange.(cleaning everything in lieu of Cash Deposit so that the Landlord didnt have to HIRE it done and PAY)..the lease state $850 deposit upon lease signing. So the Landlord didnt recieve any deposit… She didnt think to have it noted..but has lived there 6 yrs….and no demand for a dep was every made..because of the exchange
