It is possible to owe money to a property without being evicted. Just like you can give your notice to vacate, your landlord can also serve you with a notice to vacate. This isn't necessarily an eviction. You can check the courts website, civil, to see if there was an eviction filed against you at any point. If not, it was just a debt that was forwarded to collections. Definitely keep the receipt as proof of satisfaction of the debt.... more
My understanding is that you will be responsible for the rent on the home until it is reoccupied, if your lease does not state otherwise. They cannot accept rent from 2 "renters" at the same time.
Does your lease state anything about subleasing or "replacements"? Meaning, could you find someone to take over the remainder of your lease?
*Both my lease and the property I manage offer a buy-out clause so this doesn't actually apply to us.*... more
The property manager doesn't pocket the money--it has to be remitted to the City. You might want to check your lease to see if you were obligated to pay sales tax and you might want to check with the City of Mesa and see if the location off the home makes a difference.... more
As a realtor I would be obligated to show all homes in the areas you choose, and then let you do the research on crime and such.
I would be happy to help you find a nice home. Would need more information about whatbyounare looking for, ie: price, size, animals, how many on lease, etc.

Is a lease valid the date that you sign it or the date that it goes into effect?
We sign our renewal lease a couple of weeks ago, BUT it renews on September the 1st, today I emailed the office asking if I could go to a month by month what would the monthly rate be, because I was looking to buy a house... they gave me a higher rate, but it seems they also want to charge me for "Breaking" the lease...even if it has not gone into effect... I asked for clarification and of course they have not replied to my email...... more
First of all - don't count yourself out! Many lenders work with people with less than "sterling" credit. You won't know that you can't get a mortgage loan unless you try. If that doesn't work, seller financing is your next option. If he/she won't do that, ask about a lease option which will buy you some time to repair your credit. If that won't work, ask him/her to consider selling the property to an investor with you (the tenant) already in place. Best of luck!... more
