Our landlord had the house we are renting tented for termites. She had our storage shed destroyed & removed because of termite damage to it. The house is a two bedroom so we now have had to use the 2nd bedroom to store our things. We asked when she would be getting us a new storage shed. She said it was not a... show more

Basically, my Nan and grampy would like to move to a more expensive area that we used to live in (i grew up with them) and I would like to get on the property ladder- I was thinking of helping them out and myself by buying a larger house with them. I would like my own space but this way everyone wins. Do you think... show more

I pay my rent early and some times I'm forced too the way my checks are set up if I don't I will be late. Even trying to pay early there have been times that I have been late because no one ever answers the phone in their office. I don't have a email for the owner and her personal line goes unanswered... show more

Are tiny homes a scam?

Best answer: Well, not a scam in the sense of a con-artist setting out to liberate gullible people from their money but I get your point. It's more like desperate people fooling themselves that they're doing okay when they're really just a new form of transient poor, the educated, formerly middle-class. Would tiny... show more

I declined to accept them because we still have a month on our old place. The new landlord said the 2 bedroom is no longer available because the tenant never left. I told him we signed a lease for that specific unit and it is that unit or nothing. He got mad and said we would owe him an early termination fee and... show more

Best answer: She will probably take you to court for June and July rent or report you to a collections agency or maybe she won't bother - hard to day. It will be very difficult for her to collect the rent but your credit will probably be badly damaged. You could offer to pay her for June rent if she'll waive July... show more

If under 18 do you need a co-signer? I've heard of teenagers buying property before but I wasn't sure if their parents bought if for them and put it under their name or not. I would assume the age is 18 but in the US you have to be 21 to drink and 16 to drive... I don't understand the age limits as... show more

I let a friend come stay with me about 5 months ago. I asked him pay 300.00 a month, so I understand that he is now technically a tenant, and that I must go through the proper channels to evict him. I have asked him to leave personally and he refuses, so that option has already been tried. Can anyone give me a... show more

Best answer: The rent counts as income. You have to declare it for tax purposes. However, if no-one tells the tax people, how will they know?

Best answer: yep...if she has customers coming, that is typically a business and she needs to be in a business zone...and if the lease prohibits a business, they are in violation, some businesses can be run out of the home...essentially computer based or some baking where the customers don't come to the apartment. if you... show more

is this possible?

But my landlord has decided to sell the home. The realtor presented me with a contract that says neither they or the landlord will be responsible for any theft etc when they put a key on the porch for people to come look at it. I told him I don't mind if he shows it, but I'm not signing the waiver. He... show more
