• As the landlord, to what extent am I responsible if a tenant is in violation of city ordinances?

    Best answer: if it is a violation of the lease... your responsibility and ability to terminate the lease (or apply whatever penalty is in it for the violation). If it is a general city ordinance, then the most you could be expected to do is 'advise' them of that restriction and request that they follow it. I would... show more

    I would have expected that, that is all you can do - if it is not in your contract.

    You could ask for the police reference from the complaining resident ;)
    and assuming you even get one, check with the local police where they consider the issue to be (work with them basically)

  • How do people afford big houses and stuff like that when they get older?

    When I grow up, I want to get a big house. If I go to college and study hard, does that increase my chance of getting a big house? Is it impossible for certain people to get big houses? When I say big houses, I mean like three floored houses.

  • What happens to a parents debt when they pass away?

    So my Mom passed away a month ago. Prior to her passing, she had signed away her vehicle over to myself, as well as her home.

    So my Mom passed away a month ago. Prior to her passing, she had signed away her vehicle over to myself, as well as her home. The car has been already been titled in my name, same goes for the deed to the house. She evidently had credit card bills when she passed away, and collection agencies keep calling me and sending me letters attempting to reach the ''executor'' of my Mom's will, which is me. From my understanding, I am not responsible for my Mom's debt since I had no knowledge she even had credit cards, and secondly I now own her assets. I was trying to look up how it works when collectors try to recoup money from someone who has died, and it all says ''to be paid from the deceased estate''. Question being, since everything was left to me and had already been signed over prior to passing, that in my mind tells me there is no ''estate'', correct or incorrect? The only things that are left are the items in the home which was all left to me. She also gave me a check for the entire amount of money she had in her bank account and she closed it. So, what can a collection agency do and am I responsible for anything?

  • 18 years old and looking to rent an apartment in a couple months. Can someone help me through the process a little?

    I am expecting a baby, so my boyfriend and I want to move into a place to help our relationship and to have a nice place to raise our child.

    I am expecting a baby, so my boyfriend and I want to move into a place to help our relationship and to have a nice place to raise our child. I currently don't have credit and I don't really have enough income to show for, so my mother would have to cosign. I have a part time job, but my boyfriend is the main source of income for us. But that doesn't really matter because he works under the table and his name won't be on the lease (he has a record). So does the fact that I don't have credit or a sufficient amount of income matter if I have a cosigner? Also what should we make sure is accomplished before applying? I'm assuming just making sure we have enough money saved for one time expenses (such as security deposit, first months rent, furniture, etc)? And then just making sure we are earning a stable income? I would really like to make this happen asap, especially being 32 weeks pregnant. We both don't have ideal living situations at home, so moving out would be a huge solution.

    Hi I'm 22 and unfortunately have just left my job due to being badly bullied by a co worker, and management doing absolutely nothing about it. I am currently looking for a new role in the same industry. However, my mind has now conjured up a new worry. The co worker that was bullying me was also looking to leave and find a new job doing the same thing (we both did the same job). The problem is, where I live there are only really 40-50 places you can work doing what I do, so the chances of running into someone you already know is reasonably high. I'm worrying now that me and my ex co-worker will unknowingly apply at the same company and become co-workers again. This co worker was throwing food at me, so I'd really like to avoid them if possible, as I'd probably end up leaving again, is this my anxiety creating these worries. The thing is, they are perfectly fine out of work, I.e. Work night outs, so I guess I could message them on Facebook and see what they're up to before I accept a new job offer. I know there is a small possibility of this happening, but am I over thinking/exaggerating it all?

  • Always hear the 'experts' say Roth is better that traditional... I must admit I just don't understand at all why. I make $50k?

    I make, a safe assumption IMO that income at retirement would be lower than while working...do the experts differ here?! How else could a Roth be better unless they assume you withdraw $80k annually

Any way I put all of my details in, not yesterday the day before and the website says it can take up to 12 hours for them to complete the credit check. I had an email the same day with an order confirmation "Thank you for placing your order with Mobile Phones Direct. Your order details are shown below along with the anticipated date in which your order will be dispatched from our warehouse." I have tracked it and it says "we are currently awaiting the arrival of your handset" Does this mean I've been accepted? They have given me an order number too.

Up to now I had bcbs but it's not working out so I'm looking to switch and he said that, because I already have a diagnosed condition, obama care is the best option for me. I've heard about the market place but i'm not really sure what obama care is. I'm just wondering if it's good and by that I mean do alot of specialists accept it without having to deal with referrals. So if I decide to visit a neurologist, for example, would most places accept it or no?

    My fiance found a house she really likes, but it was built in 1930. I liked the house as well, but she is highly worried about asbestos in older homes. The house fits our needs, and is in our budget. I told her it should be fine, but she won't stop worrying about it, and if we choose to get the house she wants to have extra testing done on it. I think it's a waste of time, and money. She is extra worried about living in a house that contains any sort of asbestos is because her mom passed away of lung cancer, as her uncle. Her mom died in her early 60s and apparently her uncle died in his early ot middle 40s. I tired to tell her she will be fine, and it has to be air bone, but she doesn't care. She doesn't want to put her self as the "extra risk" I don't think it's that big of a deal, but she just seems to get upset with me, and thinks I'm being insensitive
