• Why do people think people have to move out of their parent's house?

    I'm 24 and I live with my parents. I save up lots of money. I don't see what the big deal is.

  • Renting a room vs renting an apartment?

    I'm wondering to hear other people's perspectives on this. I have a four-month work contract at a big tech company and need to get short-term housing in an expensive area.

    I'm wondering to hear other people's perspectives on this. I have a four-month work contract at a big tech company and need to get short-term housing in an expensive area. I can rent a room from a lady for $800 per month (including all utilities). The lady has a husband and a toddler but they would live on the other side of the house. My second option is to get a studio for $1300 per month (including utilities). I would need to buy a mattress, renter's insurance, etc.. but it would be in a nice apartment and I wouldn't need to worry about guests when my husband or friends come to visit me. For a four month period of time, an extra $500+ per month is a lot of money, but it might be worth the peace and freedom. I'll be making pretty good income so it's more a question of how much the saving capacity is worth it. Thoughts?

  • Do I let my roommate, who has moved out early, keep the keys during the lease?

    He said he will pay the remaining months. But he wants the keys. I m not sure why since he s going back home to his moms. But to me it s a power move, and my ego says there s no need for him to have them. Yet legally he is still paying for rented space that he "deserves access" to. What should I do?

  • Can people park in a handicap space without a placard in the lot of an apartment complex?

    My complex paved and repainted the parking lot over the summer 6-8 months ago. They added in handicap spots throughout the lot. These spots are the "best" parking spots in location to each building. Lately, some of my neighbors have been parking in these spots without any placards. Is this legal on... show more
    My complex paved and repainted the parking lot over the summer 6-8 months ago. They added in handicap spots throughout the lot. These spots are the "best" parking spots in location to each building. Lately, some of my neighbors have been parking in these spots without any placards. Is this legal on private property? I want to make sure I have a case before making a stink with management or other residents about them taking those spots away from handicapped people.

  • Apartment Lease and Rent: Sketchy or fair?

    Best answer: The laws on this may vary from state to state but where I am you need to pay thru the end of the lease even if you move out early, however, if a new tenant moves in and pays the rent then they are not allowed to double bill - essentially collect rent from both the old tenant and the new one. This is very unusual... show more
    Best answer: The laws on this may vary from state to state but where I am you need to pay thru the end of the lease even if you move out early, however, if a new tenant moves in and pays the rent then they are not allowed to double bill - essentially collect rent from both the old tenant and the new one. This is very unusual in most places where you'd have one move in and another move out virtually on the same day (usually the place sits empty at least a month or two) but if a tenant did move in before the extra 15 days were up then they aren't allowed to collect money from both of you for the period the new tenant paid for. If the new tenant didn't actually move in until 15 days later then they can charge you for the rent even though you weren't there.

    Again, laws vary state to state so you may want to repost with what state you are in, but since I suspect the place was vacant those 15 days anyhow, then yes - you need to pay the rent thru the end of your lease.

    Due to 2 pulmonary embolisms I am moving out of my apartment early and moving in with a friend, i found out my landlord was showing my apartment without my knowledge, they have not been giving me a 24 hour notice either. Both these things are illegal for landlords to do, but I was not planning on seeking any legal advice. I set up a security camera so I can watch the viewings, there was one today and everything was fine, but then my landlord entered my apartment after they people who were viewing left, and he kicked my cat pretty hard on the way out. I have video evidence of this. He has also been claiming that my cat has been stinking up the apartment, including the whole building which is completely false. I have 3 different people to testify that my apartment does not in fact smell in the slightest, he keeps claiming that it does (I’m thinking he’s doing this to try and keep my damage deposit) i am moving out March 1st and he is also trying to make me pay March rent. I am very upset with all that is going on and I just want to know what kind of action I should take.

    My daughter, 19 yr old student, signed a lease agreement on Dec 2017 with an Apartment to move in on August 2018 (Fall 2018). Since she had no income, I was asked to co-sign the lease. I had no problem except when they asked my SS#, DOB in addition to income, employment, etc. I refused to give my SS# or DOB due to identification theft. They asked my daughter to find a new tenant to assign her lease. She did find one and a new student signed the lease assignment sometime in Jan 2018, Since she also had no income, she had to ask her parents to co-sign the lease, Apartment says lease can not be transferred until new tenant gets her parents co-sign the lease. Can Apartment say that after new student signed the lease assignment? I did not sign my daughter’s lease either, Why she was obligated to assign her lease? What happens when parents of new assignee does not sign the lease? Will my daughter still be liable for the lease and not the new assignee? Move in date is in August 2018, 8 months later.
