Q. Need help with a tendent that we had to evict
A: Without further information, there is nothing for me or any other attorney to comment on or help with. If it is more than just a specific question, you are likely to need at least the consultation, if not the outright assistance of, a local landlord-tenant attorney. If that is likely, just make an appointment with one to review your situation and go from there. Good luck.
Q. I received a 10 day pet violation from my landlord. I am being told I have to get rid of my dog or be evicted.
A: IF you have provided the needed documentation of the animal being a ESA, then you should be allowed to keep it - unless your ESA has misbehaved or otherwise caused a disturbance or problem. If it has, then a landlord has a right to require you to get rid of that specific animal but you would be allowed to replace it with a new ESA. I doubt a 10 day termination notice, however, is the appropriate notice for that event anyway. If you have further difficulties, consider reviewing it all with a local landlord-tenant attorney. Good luck.
Q. I signed a lease but my landlord charges me anywhere from $130 to $230 for a month-to-month lease
A: Are you saying that you are being charged more rent each month than your lease said you would be? If so, that can be remedied. Document the total overage amount you have paid in the last 12 months; write an explanation along with the overage documentation, and subtract that overage amount from your next rent check. Be sure your information is correct but then the landlord can't evict you if you have paid rent in full.
