  • What to do with a landlord that won't release a security deposit.?

    We moved out at the end of January but our landlord won't release our deposit (which is 1500!!) he has said one rent payment wasn't paid back in 2015. Now I don't see how this has popped up now as it's 2017. It's the first I've heard of it and can't find any proof that it wasn't... show more
    We moved out at the end of January but our landlord won't release our deposit (which is 1500!!) he has said one rent payment wasn't paid back in 2015. Now I don't see how this has popped up now as it's 2017. It's the first I've heard of it and can't find any proof that it wasn't paid, I've said that I need proof as I can't see us missing a payment due to the amount, but now he's not replying. The only reason we've moved out is due to buying a property and we really could do with that money asap. I just don't know what to do as the agents won't realise the deposit until they have confirmation off both about the amount to be returned to us.

  • How much notice do I need to give tenant in California to show a room in a house?

    I gave more than 24 hour notice. But the tenant does not let us show it and sleeps all day. Does he have to let us show it if we give him at least 24 hour notice? Because as a result we will not have an income for a longer time if we can only show it once he moves out. He also saw the room while someone was still... show more

    Hi, first let me start off with this, Things have been going tough and I know because they're going tough doesn't mean we stop paying rent, But we lost our paid off car in october due to an accident, and in febuary the bank came and took our financed car because my father got laid off and we couldn't afford it, (We paid our rent instead of the car) So we are buying a cheap car going to pay it off this week because we finally got our tax return. We are 1 month behind on rent and the month isn't even over yet, Our landlord gave us no papers, lease or anything when we moved in, and a few days ago we found a notice to quit in the door stating we have to be out by the 28th which isn't going to happen, But we talked to our landlord BEFORE we got the notice and told him we'd pay him this months and next months Saturday after we got the rest of our tax return, and we finally did earlier in the week, The landlord hasn't been around for us to talk to him, We keep getting his voice mail, What should we do? Please don't say "OH PAY YOUR RENT ON TIME NEXT TIME OR PAY YOUR RENT ON TIME" because it's been a tough few months, but we can definitely pay what we are behind on, next months right now, (we have the money for 2 months) and so on after April when our old house sells.

  • The cold hard truth about small business?

    It sucks to own your own business. The rent + expenses eat up your profits.

    It sucks to own your own business. The rent + expenses eat up your profits. If you think online business is better, keep in mind that you'll have to PAY big bucks to even get your website out there (unless you have a rare or unique item), and the rate of return won't be very good. I've spent $50k in less than a year, and took on debt. So really, I've spent close to $100k and online sales are nonexistent. Facebook is good for driving in local traffic, but if you think you will get website sales, NOOO!!! Can't even get sales to top more than $6k a month unless I use gimmicks like ebay which did boost sales to over $20k but then you deal with returns, scams, fees, and at the end of the day you just break even. Good luck to you dreamers out there. If I could go back in time, I wouldn't have done it. Word of mouth isn't real either. Recommendations only get you so far.

    I am planning on leaving my family's house for two weeks in the summer. My family (who owns the home) will be away for 3 months so if I go on vacation, the house will be empty besides our tenant who lives upstairs. My father rents out an upstairs apartment to a single man. The man has been here for many years and seems responsible. Nevertheless, my father is scared of me leaving the house unattended for two weeks with only the tenant around. He is afraid of fires and whatnot. He is also afraid of hiring a house sitter because he doesn't trust many people. He is refusing that I go on vacation during that time despite it being the only possible time I can go for my job. In your opinion, would you or have you ever left your house alone for weeks at a time due to vacation?

    My boyfriend and I have been looking at rental homes for the past few weeks and found one that we absolutely love for a good price. I tried to schedule an appointment for us to see the home before applying (just in case), sent in our ID's and everything, and filled out a short questionnaire they sent (do you have pets, etc that sort of thing). I received a response saying that because I am part time employed, we would have to pay a security deposit that's almost four times the standard deposit. My boyfriend is employed full time, so we should already meet the criteria for standard security deposit. He's saying that because ONE of the applicants is employed part time, that we need to pay a higher security deposit. I also picked apart their policy and it doesn't say we should have to do that. Am I in the wrong?

    I moved in with my boyfriend a year ago and he asked the the office to add me to the lease so I could build credit to buy a house. I finally found a house this year and made an offer on it. The mortgage lending company sent papers to the apartment office for them to fill out as proof I had paid rent there. We always paid our rent on time and the old lady in the office refused to fill out the papers saying I was only an occupant. I went in to talk to her and she said my boyfriend never told her to put me on the lease only as an occupant. Which is a total lie since we both went in asking her to put me on the lease. She asked me to fill out a lease agreement application, turn in pay stubs, and photocopied my SS card and drivers license. Now she refuses to fill out the papers saying I was never on the lease. Is there anything I can do since it seems to me she is just being difficult and unreasonable?

He says he has proof that she was stalking these men online. One of them is a coworker she used to work for and the other is a health inspector that she had for her previous apartment. They also say that she is stupid for talking to men online. Also they say she is racist for saying that blacks are ratchet. They also have all her computer files from her computer that she has written because her cousin stole these files from her computer and she has a psychic reading. They say she is crazy and a psychopath. She has her masters and she has been paying the rent on time and is quiet but they say she is a hypocrite who speaks behind people's back.

Can he do that? It hasn't happened but I have a feeling it's something he would do, we live in CA, the Bay Area if that helps.

  • Is this job offer worth it?

    I applied for a Full-Time on air position at my dream radio station. I didn't get the job, but the boss loves my work so much that he offered a part-time Saturday night show from 4-8 $10/hr. My dilemma is I live an hour away. Is it worth the drive? And would it lead to a full-time position?
