FedUpinNY | Thursday, September 4th, 2008 6:43 am

Long story short: We’ve been renting a house for two years.  It’s in a desirable neighborhood and a good school district.  The condition of the property was well disguised when we first moved in, and has been steadily deteriorating.  My main issues — which have gone unaddressed for the 2 year tenancy — are: a […]

I will terminate the lease early prior to the expiration date because I have to move out at Sept. 10th.

Renter problems, any help appreciated!

admin | Tuesday, July 29th, 2008 8:00 am

I’m a new landlord so I’m not really sure about a lot of things, so any help would be greatly appreciated.  I rent out a single family home in Arizona, and it has one of those hard sided above ground pools.  Recently, my renter requested that I replace the liner in the pool, about $500 […]

Rent Compensation

It was discovered on 7/18 that we had a major gas leak in my apartment.  The gas company immediately came to shut off the gas, and repairs were unable to be made until the following week.  After the repairs were made, the gas company came back out to turn on the gas, but then found […]

Increase in rent?

One Hurtin' Hokie | Friday, July 25th, 2008 1:53 pm

I’m a student at Virginia Tech, and this year I’m living in the same apartment complex as I was last year. Because of roommate changes, I will now be living with a different number of roommates, and therefore we had to sign a new lease for a new apartment. In December we signed a lease […]

We are a family of five living in Jackson, MI. We rent a horribly kept house and have constant problems getting repairs done by our landlord. There is no association in our area to help resolve conflict between our two parties. Can anyone refer us to an agency that provides tenant help that may be […]

Apartment Carpet Law…?

Jamie | Monday, July 7th, 2008 1:16 pm

While vacuuming our apartment, a strand of carpet became caught up in our vacuum, and a run was created in the carpet.  We notified our landlord immediately, and they determined that it could not be patched.  Now, they are insisting that the carpet needs replacing, and we are financially responsible.  We feel as though there […]

Any help or advice is appreciated | Sunday, June 8th, 2008 8:59 am

We were asked by a friend of ours to move into his 4 bedroom house when 3 of his roomates bailed on him. He needed help paying the rent and we agreed to split the rent & utilities with him. At that time his current lease was until December 2008 but, he asked if we […]
