• How does 30 days notice work in February?

    I've been reading that if I give my landlord 30 days notice, it goes into effect at the beginning of the next rental period and that months don't have to be prorated for a few days, so how can I make my move out date at the end of February?

If I give notice in January, and it doesn't start until February 1st and 30 days carries it into March, does that mean that nobody can end their tenancy in February?

  • Landlords shouldn't be allowed to charge so much for rent?

    Best answer: If you think that rent is too high, use your own money and buy properties that you can rent out for what you think rent should be. The value of anything is what a willing buyer will pay and a willing seller will accept If someone is willing to pay $2000 a month to rent an apartment, and the landlord is willing... show more

    The value of anything is what a willing buyer will pay and a willing seller will accept If someone is willing to pay $2000 a month to rent an apartment, and the landlord is willing to rent for that price, that is the market value. If the landlord wants more than anyone is willing to pay, the property will not be rented,

  • My renter just told me she lost her job and has zero savings.?

    She has hoa violations too. It also sounds like she has no intention of getting a job..she wants to try to get on disability, which will take a long time. I am considering telling her she can just move and I wont try to get more money out of her (move to a cheaper area). This will be my first eviction. Advice?

    I recently moved into an apartment.It looked clean when viewing the apartment.However, when I actually started staying there within the first week there would be roaches crawling in the bathroom when I turned on the lights.It happened for 2 days straight and since then I have refused to turn the lights off since they seem to come out at night.On top of that there are centipedes everywhere.One was as big as my hand, no lie. And an ant infestation in the kitchen. I work 50+ hours a week and i don’t have time for this. I’m already seeing roaches and I haven’t even brought any food in because I’m not comfortable eating there. Im afraid the stuff I have brought could be contaminated. I want to break the lease because I was promised livable conditions and not a roach infested apartment I can’t even sleep in. I feel like I should be able to break the lease because this was a problem before I moved in. I also want ALL my money back (rent, and security deposit). I couldn’t even live there for the week and I have to move back with my parents because of this. They will not let me bring my mattress or anything else that roaches could be in. My dog has had to live with a friend since I don’t want her exposed to all these bugs. So this is already going to cost me enough money. Nor do I think I should have to go through the hassle of having my apartment constantly sprayed and go roach hunting for “proof.” I live in Chicago. Can anyone let me know what I will be dealing with legally?

  • If given proper notice do you receive your money back?

    If a person pays rent for a month at a property, never receives a key, and then also before that month starts informs them they won't be staying there. Are they refunded any of the rent amount?

    So I recently moved into a new apartment with two guys I met in a low income housing situation. We got a 1 bedroom apartment to share which two of us signed the lease for. Now, mind you, our apartment isn t suppose to have more than two occupants, but due to the third guy having poor credit from having a previous roommate bail on him we figured we wouldn t have been able to put him on the lease anyway. The guy not on the lease kept smoking weed excessively and brought a stray cat home knowing I was allergic. Now normally I wouldn t have an issue with either of these really but the fact he wasn t on the lease, him bringing illegal drugs into our house, and keeping an animal there when were not suppose to have any pets wasn t ok. I discussed this with him and he became extremely confrontational, eventually pushing me and escalating to throwing punches. Needless to say he s gone now. The guy I signed the lease with lost his job right after we moved in. However he had his last check, worth 5 grand, and was getting unemployment for half that every month. He is difficult to get rent from every month, refuses to clean up after himself, and complains that rent is too much despite the fact he just bought a new phone and was willing to drop a grand on a motorcycle he doesn t even know how to ride. He just broke the toilet trying to install a superfluous *** sprayer. If he doesn t fix it, I m going to tell him to go **** himself, and pay out of my lease. Am I overreacting?

  • Can I keep my Florida Homestead Exemption?

    We have lived in the same Miami-Dade residence for over 30 years and have a vacation cabin in another state. We usually stay gone from Miami-Dade for roughly 3 months a year. However, this year was longer. We had to be overseas for more than 6 months this year so we let our daughter stay in our Miami-Dade house to keep it occupied. All the utilities are in our name and our vehicles are all Florida registered. Returning to the US now, we want to stay through the holidays at the other place away from Florida, and we plan to be away again for much longer in the coming years. Does being away from our primary residence in Miami Dade on January 1 make us ineligible to continue Homestead Exemption even though a family member is living in the house? We never before gave this any thought and wonder if we have to rush back just to be in the house on January 1. We want to be on the safe side on this. Thanks for clarity.

    I was going to rent a room for 500 a month from a friend, gave them rent money on Oct 25th for the month of November. I moved some belongings that day as well. On the 30th I told them I was sorry it was super notice but had got accepted at an apartment so wouldn t be moving in with them. At the time they said okay, that they would gladly pay back the whole 500 and that they would have to pay me back slowly since they had already spent the money. It then took me a week to get my belongings since when I asked if they were home they wouldn t respond or would say they were out, I went by their house twice and they weren t there(I never got a key) and once waited for an hour when they said they would be home. I asked them November 10th if they had anything to pay me back, since I needed to pay the deposit to my new landlady. They tried to tell me that I only paid them 400, (I have proof it was 500) that I had my stuff there for a whole month and made the space unavailable for them to rent to someone else, and that I m not entitled to nor owed any amount. I understand not being owed the whole amount back, but am I not entitled to atleast some of it, since I told them I wouldn t be moving in before the month in question?
