    I live in an 8 unit apartment in michigan. The landlady lives in one of the units. She feeds every stray cat in the neighborhood in our parkinglot.

    I live in an 8 unit apartment in michigan. The landlady lives in one of the units. She feeds every stray cat in the neighborhood in our parkinglot. A few weeks ago, I accidentally backed over a cat. She rushed it to the vet and expects me to pay for the vet bills (nearly $2000). She has knocked on my door every day wanting money. I have told her, I'm not paying a vet bill for a stray cat. Now she said she's revoking my parking privilege and will tow me if I park in the lot.

  • Why won't she help us??

    Hey guys, so my girlfriend and I are both 26 years old, and we are expecting a baby soon but a few months earlier this year we both had to move back to our parent's house, because I was evicted from my apartment for non payment, but I tried paying the rent every month, but every month the rent would just get... show more
    Hey guys, so my girlfriend and I are both 26 years old, and we are expecting a baby soon but a few months earlier this year we both had to move back to our parent's house, because I was evicted from my apartment for non payment, but I tried paying the rent every month, but every month the rent would just get higher and higher to the point that I couldn't afford it anymore so I was evicted. Now that the baby is almost here, we are looking to get another apartment, but the problem is my eviction and my girlfriend has been out of work since early pregnancy due to a condition she has. With my eviction, I can't apply for apartments because that would be instant denial, and I've already tried landlords that aren't corporate landlords and they all said no as well. So my mom is supposed to apply and put her name on the lease for us with my name also being on there as an occupant, but my mom is just taking her time with the process and we are trying to move asap. Preferably mid to late November would be fine with us. Realistically I've been trying to get her to help us out for months but she drags on the process. What do you guys think???

  • Landlord: Charging multiple late rent charges?

Is that a normal practice? Or is it just one late charge per rental invoice? Thanks

  • I received a call saying I won a raffle at a mall? Is it a scam?

    I received a call saying I won a raffle at a mall and that I won a lot of money. And it sounded like an automated voice not a person. It’s true I did enter my info to win a car at a mall. But this still sounds like a scam. Is it a scam?

  • If I lived with my gf for a few years and I bought a house in MY name but i said it was our home half and half does she own half the house?

    Best answer: If only your name is on the deed, you own it, but if she sues you, no telling what can happen. You'd likely be ordered to pay her something for her share.

Most people here can't afford a $390,000 house. Most people anywhere where they live, can't afford the kind of a house that sells here for $390,000, because of how much it would cost there. I had my own apartment when I worked at sheltered workshop. Because I could afford it, because of my productivity. :)

    Best answer: That's if you take it in a lump sum rather than an annuity. Even so, would you turn down a check for $350 million?
