Q. Can a landlord try to evict you still if you give partial rent payment late?
A: Yes, the landlord could evict you starting on the first day of the month after the partial payment was made. The best thing to do is catch-up with the past and present rent owed, before your LL issues you a 3 Day Notice to Pay or Quit. Best of luck.
Q. Can I be evicted for having my elderly mother that's in late stages of dementia live with me
A: Look at your lease and find out if there is a clause that states that you may have to pay for another person. If you do, offer to pay for the extra person and you may avoid the hustle of litigation which is very expensive. Sometimes, proactive negotiation is better than all out litigation. Best of luck
Q. My family rented a home from who we thought was the owner but she lost house in foreclosure
A: Assuming you have already sent her a letter telling her to turn the water and she has refused. Call the City inspectors and tell them to cite her for depriving you of water and sewage. Once the city inspects your house and cites her, talk to a Tenant lawyer to advise your further. Best of luck:
Q. My landlord gave me a pay or quit notice on the same day I made a deposit into her account.
Q. I have had no hot water for three days and my landlord has not fixed the problem. What do I do?
A: File a Complaint with the City ‘s inspector and have them contact your landlord to fix the problem. Best of luck.
Q. Our apt flooded and is being repaired. We are unable to enter our home for at least 3 weeks. are we required to pay rent
A: Depending on how the flood happened you may be entitled to being placed in a residence similar to your dwelling. However, you should continue paying rent to avoid an eviction. Best of luck.
Q. Can another person renting in the house act for the landlord and give me 30 days?
A: No. You need at least 60 days Notice to Vacate property. Tell him to stop harassing you and stop violating your Covenant of Peace and Quiet enjoyment. S end him a written letter and tell him to stop violating your rights under the implied Covenant of Peace and Quiet Enjoyment. If you have the real owner's address, send him a copy of your letter. If, eventually ,they succeed in evicting you. You may sue them for wrongful eviction. Meanwhile, go to the housing office near you and file a complaint for harassment. Best of luck.
Q. Do I have to take my landlord’s offer of staying in a bad hotel in a different city while they finally start repairs
A: You do not have to take a "bad hotel". You have the right to be in a place similar or equal to the abode you reside. If the next town is only a few miles, then you may suggest a different hotel. If you have any issues with your landlord, it may be worthy for you to hire an attorney to negotiate for you. Best of luck.
Q. In a California dog bite case of a minor the mother who was in the middle of the attack but not bitten untitled to comp
A: This is a most interesting question. You are definitely entitled to reimbursement for all out of pocket expenses on behalf of your son. However, if I understand you correctly, you wish to know if you would be entitled to recovery for your emotional distress. Although your son’s case falls under strict liability theory, I think you would have to argue for your emotional distress under general liability theory. Best of luck.
