By Ibogan

  

  I received a 3 day notice to pay or quit 04/22/12 for October 2011, I was unable to find a copy of the money order, but I do know that in October when I was on my way to the office, Joyce

(Property Manager) was standing outside and I handed her my money order

Hi. You can check your bank to see if the money order you gave your property manager was cashed that way you will have proof that you do not owe any late rent. If your landlord insist that you pay your back rent after you have proof that you paid on time then you can file a complaint against him. I heard that the RPA can help you with this situation.


Can Landlord Do this?

By FrustratedNTexas

I moved all of my belongins out of my rental by September 1st. However, I cleaned the place and still had a couple of items in the garage. I informed my landlord that I was waiting on friend with a truck to take items to location. Of, course,he had a truck but never offered any assistance. It was about th 10th before I could get the 3 items moved out of garage. He sent me a letter saying that he was charging me rent for 10 days because the items were still in garage. Can he do that. The house was empty and I was completely moved out of it..

He can, but it makes him a jerk.


Landlord – 18 Years

November 18th, 2012 8:27 pm

When you leave items in the dwelling with a statement of, “I’ll pick them up later”, you have not officially vacated/surrendered the unit. The Landlord is required by most states (if not all) to perform a full inspection of the premises upon the tenant surrendering the space back to the Landlord. Every state also requires that the Landlord provide a tenant with a statement of security deposit allocation within a specific time frame from the date the premises is returned to the Landlord. In Washington, the time frame is only 14 days.
If the Landlord cannot perform the full inspection, they cannot produce an accurate statement of security deposit allocation. As well, they cannot properly perform the necessary steps to make the dwelling rent ready for the next occupant.

To expect a Landlord to store your belongings for free, while impacting their ability to re-rent the space is unrealistic.
In no way is a Landlord responsible to assist tenants with moving their items from one location to another. By doing so they assume a certain level of liability for the belongings. The insurance a Landlord carries would not cover the Landlord in the event that something happened to your personal belongings.
To expect a Landlord to take on this personal liability is unrealistic.

If you kept items in the rented space for 10 days, then you have not officially vacated, therefore you are rent responsible. Your lack of planning should not be the expense of the Landlord.

If a tenant has leased from a landlord for a year in Texas and upon the expiration of that lease the landlord then says that rent will be increased, can the landlord legally do this without giving tenant any advanced written notification that rent will be increased?

Can Landlord do this?

By Ania

I moved out on 6/5/2009. I lived there since 2/28/2006. On 7/16/2009 I received a statement (not dated, date is on envelope) that I owe $1400.00 besides the $880.00 deposit I paid upon moving in. The statement disclosed over $700 in carpet replacement, which I thought was ridicules. So I sent a certified letter requesting copies of invoices showing the costs of all repairs. After 2 weeks I called to confirm that they got my letter and I was told I should be getting something in a mail within a month or so. I have not heard from them since until yesterday. I got a letter from a collection agency dated 1/21/2011. I haven’t even got a letter informing me that the account will be placed in collections. Can they do that? What are my rights at this point? I also read that in Nevada Landlord has to present final statement within 30 day that is probably why there is no date on the statement they set me. Also I read that Landlord has to present written statement of all damages and problems with the unit besides the standard checklist. I haven’t got anything like that. Please advise if I should seek legal help or just pay.

Thank you
