Legal Answers
145 Questions Answered

Q. Can my friend fight eviction from the home that his grandma bought for him to live in after her passing?
A: Evictions are a matter of contract or implied contract. This will turn on the exact reason in the Notice given as to what Grandson's defense may be. Grandson may have a defense that he is an owner and thus cannot be evicted. He should consult an attorney to discuss the facts and possible defense before the court date.
Q. My landlord didn't tell me there was no heating system in my room or bathroom before I moved in. Can I break my lease?
A: You may have a Warranty of Habitability issue. But, this will be very fact intensive. The primary issue is whether or not your LL will pursue you for damages if you abandon the lease. It is unlikely to be a financially viable case for the LL.
Q. Can I evict one tenant on lease but not the other tenant on lease?
A: Yes - You can bring the action against one tenant - a smart Defendant would bring in the other tenant as a 3rd party defendant, but maybe she will not. Likely, you'll ultimately sign a new lease with the single remaining tenant.
Q. How do we get the name of a financial lender off of the deed when the property is paid.
A: The lender will need to release it's claim. The type of security that was provided for the loan will determine the type of filing that needs to occur to release the claim. This is likely a valuable property and worthy of retaining an attorney to ensure that the Church has full and complete ownership.
Q. I own a mobile home but there is a lien on it can the landlord evict me if he is not the mobile home park manager.
A: Your facts are confusing. Whoever is identified in your lease as the Landlord has the power to evict you if you are in breach of the lease agreement. There may be a separate issue between evicting the occupant of the trailer and evicting the trailer from the park.
Q. Building transferred ownership one month into lease, dispute over validity of deal offered by previous owners. Options?
A: You are in a difficult spot. If the new ownership doesn't honor the deal you'll be faced with proving that the offer existed or paying the disputed $1,000. Hopefully, the sales person will testify on your behalf.
Q. Is it a criminal charge for landlord shutting off my power
A: It is unlikely that the LL has the right to turn off your utilities. I recommend contacting an attorney to respond to the LL and possibly bring a lawsuit against the LL to cover your damages.
Q. Landlord wants to come in everyday from 2:30-6:30 to show property til closing day, Can she do that?
A: It is likely that a Judge would not consider this reasonable. Do you want to hire an attorney to send your landlord a demand letter or otherwise contact your landlord on your behalf?
Q. Landlord did not want to accept rent because she wanted a plumbers bill as well, now she is adding late fees, can she?
A: If landlord attempts to evict you based on failure to pay rent, you will want to bring these facts to the attention of the Judge. You may want to hire an attorney to help you prepare for the hearing or to defend you at the hearing.
