• Is it okay to become homeless on purpose?

    I live in a safe neighborhood. None of the homeless people in my area look like they are starving. My "problem" is that none of my career-choices seem to be working out. I'd be happy to make $30,000/year but there aren't any here in Los Angeles, at least not without a college-degree. I can... show more
    I live in a safe neighborhood. None of the homeless people in my area look like they are starving. My "problem" is that none of my career-choices seem to be working out. I'd be happy to make $30,000/year but there aren't any here in Los Angeles, at least not without a college-degree. I can be a web-developer but most people tell me that field is saturated. I can be a bookkeeper but I've been told me there's not much demand for that career. Otherwise, I'm stuck working 60 HOURS a week as a florist, a gardener, or math-tutor. Again, these jobs pay less than $13/hour. I'm tired of looking. I'd rather be homeless at this point than have no life working 60 hours/week. Is that okay?!? ________ Your thoughts?

  • House is leased directly from the owners, the owners changed to a property management company mid-lease and never gave written notice.?

    I have a lease with the property owner, they have decided to now use a property management company (PMC). I was never given written notice or any notice of any kind. I was told a helper of the owner would be coming by to do an "official" walk through inspection, considering one had not been done in the 4 months of me living there. The person shows up and does the inspection, proceeds to tell me they work for the new PMC and some new rules, terms and conditions will apply. A few days later I receive by mail, a notice of violation because a person not on the lease was living on the property and he needs to pay $75 app fee to qualify to live on the property. My partner was over at the time of the inspection, watching my 3 kids as I go to work. The PMC just assumed he lived with me... Never once asking me about this issue while during or after the inspection. I feel that multiple infractions have accrued. 1. no written notice of changing to a PMC. 2. adding new terms and conditions to the lease via the PMC lease. 3. automatically assuming my boyfriend lives with me. 4. PMC sent me a notice of violation, yet, I have NEVER signed a lease with the PMC. I can easily list more violations like false advertising on details about the property. I am in Oregon. We have very strict rental and landlord rules. -What rights do I have? -Can I ask to end my lease per these violations of lease and ask to be reimbursed on my moving cost and deposits? All help is greatly appriciated

  • Do I have a right to stay?

    My dad passed away and gave the house to my sibling. Currently the two of us and another individual are living there, splitting the mortgage 3-ways.

    My dad passed away and gave the house to my sibling. Currently the two of us and another individual are living there, splitting the mortgage 3-ways. My parents paid off the house many years ago, but then my sibling took a loan out on the house for their own reasons (which, with a few bad decisions on their part, ended up not working out. so the loan taken out, was all for naught) and that is what we are paying off. Anyway, my sibling just wants to abandon the house. I, on the other hand want to stay, not only because the house is nice, but I have a place to live, and I m paying rent. The loan on the house is their fault in the first place, wouldn t it be irresponsible and careless to just abadon it? On the one hand, I feel that I am holding them back, but on the other I feel that they should reap what they sow rather than running away from what they did to their own parents home. I also understand that since the house is in their name they could do whatever the hell they want. But hopefully you can tell by the little info I provided how irresponsible they are. I only wosh they could find someone more resposible to keep the house and find a roomate to replace them. My question is do I have a right to fight for my childhood home? Is there anything, no matter how small, I can do to keep the home I am living in?

There is a possibility of building a new house or adding living space over a barn on the same property for our daughter and husband. is it beneficial to have them on the deed if they need to get money for a loan to build the new house/living space? Are there additional tax issues that come up when adding them? Would that be considered a gift? Any insight would be great, thanks

  • Breach of Lease?

    In the state of Texas, do tenants have any rights in regards to breach of lease? It is stated on the notice that it is because the landlord was not told of my living in the apartment and the fact that we have a dog (ESA); we told them the dog is an ESA when they asked.

    I let some people in to help them out as they werre in need. Sadly in hindsight it was a very stupid thing to do. and they have overstayed their welcome by a lomg shot and trash the place and they steal and borrow things of mine without returning them. They use my internet and all of my utilities. I need to get rid of them but I have heard the court process takes a long long time and even if found to leave they often stay and the whole process starts again. What can I do? I m desperate. Its a living hell Its sad but I really wish I had never tried to help them Thank you

    Through my real estate agent, the seller and I signed a contract for a property. I had an inspector come out ($500), an appraiser ($300) and have fixed up my home getting it ready to sell. We were to close two weeks ago, but seller wanted an extension of closing after they set the date. Closing is now this Wednesday, another date picked by the seller. I just heard that they want to extend closing again. He forgot he made a doctor appointment. And he said he s not good with technology to do it virtually. If we do this again, I will lose my interest rate. What can I do here? Do I have any rights to sue them for anything if they don t sell and this is just to jerk me around? I have a realtor and so do they. My realtor said she s never seen anything like this.

He is also trying to apply for disability, but has been turned down twice now, because he isn't actually disabled, just lazy & wants free money, hence the reason he wants to sell this house. If we are co-owners & he wants to sell, but I absolutely do not, what happens now? I pay for all the lights & water, insurance & taxes. Do I have any legal leverage here or does he have it all? Thank you all so much for any help & knowledge you can share with me! Have a nice night!

    I got a 60 day notice 2 weeks ago ... I'm a good tenant and didn't do anything wrong but my landlord just needs the apartment b ack for a family member and needs me to move out. I was already struggling financially and barely getting by... I don't have first, last, deposit for an expensive SF Bay Area apartment just lying around so I need the whole 60 days to save up. Well, I didn't pay rent assuming I had 60 days and got served a 3 day notice. 60 days - 14 days = 46 days left to be out. Not 3 days from now, right? Is there anything I'm supposed to do? Can stay in my apartment until the original move out date I was given?

    Best answer: There is nothing that would not allow you to pay all cash for a house.

    You would be required to prove the money is not being laundered. This mean you money would be required to be seasoned. Seasoning of funds would require they be in your bank account or under your control, for a period of 90 days or more. You would be required to provide all unaltered financial documents that the funds were in a financial institution in your name.

    The closing agent might also send a verification of funds to your financial institution requiring an agent or representative of the financial institution to sign a document that the funds have been in your account for 90 days or more.


    I hope this has been of some benefit to you, good luck.
