Apartment shit by Phoebe Humbleford - Wed, 07 Sep 2016 20:18:22 EST ID:e3WkEkly No.45505 Ignore Report Reply Quick Reply

Could really use some help making sense of this lease addendum for my apartment and my specific situation.

TLR - Leasing company's dicking me over and wasting my time with something I don't think I really need.

So I'm trying to get my name taken off my apartment lease so that my two roommates can continue living in the apartment while I move into one of my own at a different location. I was told that if I didn't fill out a tenant release addendum, I was going to be held liable for any further leases my roommates sign for the apartment. Worse yet, they're charging me $100 for a release fee.

According to the addendum, it's set up with the expectation that I'm trying to get out of my lease early, but as of today, I have paid the rent for my 12th month of my 12-month lease. I'm not trying to move out early, simply move out at the very end of the month.

To make everything worse, my property management staff has been incredibly incompetent about the whole process. I first asked about this nearly two weeks ago. I've been down to their office three times myself, and my roommates twice to sign a two page document. This last visit ended up with them losing my original copy of the addendum we all signed, as well as my signed check.

My move from my last apartment to the one I'm currently in wasn't even remotely as frustrating as this whole process has been.

What I really want to know is if a tenant release addendum is what I really need. My roommates intend to sign their own lease on their own credit at the end of the month so they can stay in the same apartment, but I just want to go my own way and the lease we signed for 12 months.

At the very least, could I raise hell about their bullshit and get the release fee waived?

Ask to see in the contract that lease renewal is automatic and there's a fee for getting out of it even at the end of your lease.

Well I found my copy of the lease. Says there is an automatic renewal on a month-to-month basis if we don't notify them 30 days prior that we intend to terminate the lease at the end date. It doesn't say anything about a release fee in the lease itself though. Just in the addendum.

Here's the fucking kicker though. This morning while I was at work, I got a text from my bank notifying me that the $100 check I had wrote them and they had lost had been withdrawn from my bank account. They didn't even bother to notify me that they found it or anything.

I can see how I owe the $100 considering neither me or my roommates have given them written notification that we're intending to terminate our lease, so we've lapsed into the month-to-month basis already and since I'm still on the lease, I have to pay this release fee they're asking for.

They've just been so incompetent and sketchy about the whole fucking process.

Well if the renewal is automatic if no notice if given and it had lapsed into another month then,, If it is stated there is a release fee if no notice is given then I guess. I have seen this as commonplace.

I have known many landlords. Some were speed heads but sensible when it came to tenants rights. If you really think you are getting the shaft then look into you local tenants rights authority.

Reality is if you are on an automatic month to month recurring lease, and did not give what may be considered reasonable notice then you seem to fit in with what the contract states. While they seem to have charged you for the release, then the release should actually be standing and active.

You should get a statement of the release since you have been charged the fee release agreement.

I am no attorney but have rented with 6 month yearly leases, dodged landlords by default not paying rent, did midnight moves. Had associates take companies to court when they terminated their tenants leases and lost their property and prevailed with relative ease. Seen scumbag redneck landlords that
if they didn't have the landlord job they could not hold a job, where they screw people over and should in reality have their reality checked for them.

Watch those leases. Most are not extremely complicated. End lease before agreed upon, pay a fee
for terminating conditions of a lease. Just make sure your lease is actually terminated as they charged you for it. Get documentation of this, surely they can accommodate you with this.

just do it yourself. kidnap the dog, drive it into the forest, pet it for 20+ minutes, talking kindly to it, say a sincere apology/prayer/statement of kinship, then slip your knife just under the base of its skull, killing it very quickly. then dig the grave, bury the dog, mark the site (if you want), and tell the mother where the burial site is (if you want)

My friends dad (mid 60s) and a local bar manager (married, but not to him) died in a boating accident in the ocean. He was more or less crippled in one leg and several people refused to go fishing with him because of it.

They were reported missing,and after a C.c. search they were both found dead.

The husband is now trying to sue my friend (manager of the estate) for a million dollars, which they don't have, for wrongful death.

The major hitch is that the lawyer representing the woman was already employed by the manager of the estates wife on another case. They will no longer return her calls or email.

What would your next step be? Counter suit against woman's family for luring the old man out, filing conflict of interest report, or both. All advice is appreciated.

>The husband is now trying to sue my friend (manager of the estate) for a million dollars, which they don't have, for wrongful death.
The husband is suing the estate, not the manager/trustee of the estate. The trustee of the estate is ultimately responsible for responding to the suit and if there are other stakeholders for the estate they can sue HIM if he doesn't fulfill his legal obligations.

>The major hitch is that the lawyer representing the woman was already employed by the manager of the estates wife on another case.
Is the other case related or on-going? If not, that's irrelevant.

>What would your next step be?
Consulting with a qualified attorney who can assess the wrongful death claim and explain what it would take to fight the suit. If there's more than a few thousand dollars at stake, that's a no-brainer.

so i haven't paid my rent for this month. i work in construction and my office sent me home a bunch of days this month because there was no work. It took me a while, but I found another job last Thursday, the problem is that I don't start until this upcoming Friday.
I spent all weekend selling everything I own, except for my laptop (which I'm pawning later today) and my truck, which I plan on selling later today as well (I have a buyer lined up for it), in an effort to cover the rent and fees before the hearing.

I received a summons last week, and my hearing is in three hours.

Am I fucked? What should I do? I'll be able to pay the rent and the fees at the end of the week, but I'm afraid the judge is gonna be just like "fuck it" and give an OK to have me out of there.

tl;dr, eviction hearing today, but I'm able to pay what I owe at the end of the week, what should I say/do?

So someone backed up into my car the other day. It was the other person's fault. I was insured but didn't have my insurance information with me at the time, so didn't want to call the cops and risk getting arrested for driving without insurance. We do exchange information and I have a picture of her insurance. I called her insurance company who inform me that the policy had been cancelled. Great. I call the other driver and tell her this and she acts surprised, claiming she made a payment last month and she will check it out.

Now what do I do. She lives in my apartment complex which is where the accident happened. Would it make sense for me to call the cops and have them take statements from both me and her and file a report, or am I wasting my time and the best thing I can do now is hope she pays?

Take the steps. See if you can get a police report, see if the insurer will accept it, and try to submit a UM claim. It's almost certainly going to get denied coverage, but it's worth a shot and odds only get worse.

Most likely you have to go after her on your dollar.

this would likely be a civil suit where youd have to sue them for damages.

the burden of proof is much lower, not resonable doubt but perponderance of evidence. the fact you have he id, and insurance a a credible story likely means you would win.

Stole a man's beer, get kicked out of the bar. Then the man i stole beer from pushed me down stairs but I kept my balance. Then he pushed me inside the bar. So I grab a bottle and I'm gonna swing it at his head but instead I fall to the floor where he tries to kick my head and neck. He gets a few light hits on me.

Anyway the police came and i just tell them what happened but they say the witnesses say i didn't get attacked. But I tell them I'm not lying, they tell me to tell it to the judge.

What I'm worried about is that I'm going to be thrown in a court where nobody will believe me, they can't do that can they? They can't force me to sue him or something like that?

So I know for most people Legal Insurance would be pissing money away. But lately I've been thinking there is one situation I would get it in. I've been sober for awhile, but god forbid I ever relapse I thing the first thing, well let's be real the second thing after buying all the liquor in the packy, Is get legal insurance. I get that most people just pay a lawyer when they need one, and that's cheaper than paying 40 bucks a month for god knows how many years till you need one. But in a high risk scenario like a relapse would it be worth it? Or are there better options?

Does /law/ think this might be legal in various places where prostitution is illegal?
>Hire people as porn actresses/actors, camera operators, and maybe a couple editors/producers.
>Take on clients who co-star in films. This can ostensibly be free or they could maybe even be paid a small amount.
>The client pays for full rights to the video taken, which they could ostensibly market for a profit.
Thoughts? I can see issues like the clients refusing to buy the video etc. but could we make this work? If so, where? Client pays camera/producer to commission a video -> same exact money is used to pay other actor. Is this where it likely becomes illegal? Pic related - sadistic creep-o the clown is from a deep undercover vice sting on COPS.

Okay sure maybe the company offering to a client concept, but what about some guy who pays a girl to be in a porn (with him <- operative part), produces, and sells the video himself. Don't a lot of people do this? Is it really such a far cry to offer the framework? Or if you start making porn wherein roles are paid, are you not allowed to be in it? Couldn't one producer hire their friend to act and vice versa?

It's legal to pay a person to have sex if Step 1: There's a camera on. Step 2: ??? Step 3: Profit (or don't).

Anyone here have experience with CA business laws?
Looking to do a food truck and need some links or references for information reguarding licenses, locations (ie. Where i can park and sell food), and basically anything.
Looked into in 2014 when i was doing a mock business plan for project and at the time trucks were being raided for shitty licenses and improper requirements to work at specific locations. At the time the best i could find is that the laws had not caught up with the rise of the food truck industry and were still being ruled as ice cream trucks (allowing pretty much 10 min of being stopped in any given location). Gona do more research obviously but google just gives me shit about "food trucks are great!" And buzzfeed/huffposts/business insider shit about "food trucks are trendy!"

Any help is appreciated!

okay, i googled food truck law california

the first link brought me here https://www.upcounsel.com/how-to-start-a-food-truck-in-california which said
Try to find a used catering truck that has the equipment and set-up you need in order to save on refurbishing costs, and make sure that your truck meets your local area’s specifications. California law requires that all equipment in the truck be certified by the American National Standards Institute. It would be wise to have the Health Department examine your plans prior to purchasing or renting your truck

Additionally, California law requires that all mobile food vendors operate in conjunction with a food facility, also known as a commissary, such as a licensed commercial kitchen. So, you will need to rent a commercial space for preparing food, and storing your inventory. You also must secure a location for parking and truck maintenance. Under California law, all mobile food facilities that prepare food must be parked at a designated food facility when not in use

theres an entire section on permits and license thats too long to copy paste so click the link
