    Should I pay or let landlord evict ?

    As Zigner says, what state - US Law only! How has the flea infestation been resolved? When? How? And by whom? Wouldn't it have been cheaper to have hired an exterminator, yourself, so you could live there 6 weeks ago? (I just hired an exterminator for a rental house and it was less than $200...

    landlord charging me over $3k in damages

    We have had carpet, padding and plywood subflooring ruined by dog pee. The stench was unbearable! It made me gag to walk in. I have no idea how some people can live like pigs! Get rid of your dog or keep him outside. Pay the landlord!

    Landlord/tenant dispute regarding emotional support animal (ESA)

    I'm still confused as to why you did not disclose you had cats (plural) to your landlord when you applied!? Where were the cats after you moved in? You intended to leave them there and not bring them with you? I find that hard to believe. Just FYI, owners of ESA (support animals) do NOT have...

    Notice to vacate error

    Seems to me it would be better to pay the landlord what you owe him, stay, and not have an eviction on your record. In my area, rentals are in such a demand, landlords rarely rent to people with prior evictions.

    Illinois - Do we need to pay for water damage that is the result of the landlord's neglect?

    Chris.M, do you carry insurance that might cover it (or could get involved in seeing if you are responsible)? That being said, $300-$450 probably wouldn't be worth a claim.

    Need proof

    I don't think any of us understands when you say "lease was garnished". That's not a real thing. Explanation, please! ALWAYS get it in writing if your landlord is allowing you to break your lease before you move!

    Air Duct cleaning responsibilities

    I agree with the comments, above. Pushing the issues of who pays for vent cleaning might irritate the landlord. Irritated landlords are more likely not to renew the lease at the end of the term. Cleaning air ducts is cheaper than moving. (BTW - if the floor registers were filled with "carpet...

    Title Company had incorrect address on new construction

    I thought it was the street/house address that was incorrect? The OP states "In the meantime I have to get all of the addresses I've already changed, changed again! " If it were simply "legal description" or "parcel number" that needed changing, the OP wouldn't be inconvenience. It would just...

    House fire in Ohio - does she have to leave?

    What is the name of your state (only U.S. law)? OHIO Posting for an acquaintance. I had no idea what to tell her and was hoping someone here knows the answer. "We had a house fire (small) and the landlord can not afford to fix the damages with what his insurance is quoting his repairs. Our...

She left no records for us (so it would be less...
