Filippo,
What do you mean that you can't claim it as yours? Where are you looking to claim it at? If you own it then it should be yours in the San Diego County Recorders Office. I'm not sure specifically what you are asking. Please clarify.

Yes they can but were they sending you your deposit back? In California, landlords have 21 days to return or explain in detail why they are deducting your deposit.
I usually ask for a new forwarding address in case you get mail at the old address or for the return of your security deposit.

I would put everything relating to mold issues in writing right away. Sned and email and mail a letter certified mail. This will indicate to the property manager that you are serious about this issue.
You can have a mold test done to prove it is not just dirt, etc.
I hope this helps.
Mold is not something to play around with. It can be dangerous to you and your family. But you do need proof that it is mold and then the landlord must deal with it.

Nancy Bergman answered:
I tell all my sellers of rentals - please give a heads up to the tenants that the landlord is selling the property. Its the right thing to do.
With that said, depending how the contract was written, you may get to stay in the property with the new owners as your new landlord, you may have 30 days or 60 days depending how long you have been in the property. I would simply call the owners and ask!!!

I think it would be a good idea for her to get in touch with an attorney. That is definitely a health issue and there needs to be some work done to resolve that sewage problem. If the landlord isn't complying, a lawyer will be able to persuade him I'm sure. Good luck with everything. http://www.rtcrestoration.com/services/emergency-water-damage-repair-and-water-clean-up ... more

I have noticed that since searching on your website for possible rentals, I have received more"FAKE" landlord responses about the properties. The website is wasting my time now and will look elsewhere as I am tired of getting SPAMMED. Its the same email from different groups asking for when I can send the security deposit, pictures of my kids, my home address etc... Very disappointing and feel your website is now a waste of my time. ... more

Michael Ford answered:
theresa, there is a big difference between little or no credit and bad credit. 640 ain't that bad provided the reason is that you have little history or few lines or none.

you tenant history includes things like the way you pay on time, get along with neighbors, care for the home and generally comply with the terms of the lease. your current landlord can draw a simple letter for you to indicate your history in those regards. i do for mine if they ask. since you are only there a year references from prior landlord's, if available, are helpful if they are complimentary. lot's of folks these days are moving for reasons like sales so you're not unusual in that regard

you can pull your own credit report, along with any co-tenants, to see what the landlord might see and cover that BEFORE he sees it if there are any derogatory entries.

Hi Ronald,

As the owner/property manager of several rental properties, I would be leery to rent to someone that obviously cannot afford the monthly rent unless she/he can explain how she/he has been able to pay $1050/month for the last 6 months.

I would recommend getting that explanation and verifying the rental history with the previous landlords (further away than the last 6 months).

Any specific reason why you are only considering this candidate?

DJ in CA answered:
In California you are required to give 30 days notice unless otherwise specified on the lease. 30 day notice can be given ANY DATE, it does NOT have to be on the first (you can give 30 day notice any date, landlord can give 30 day notice on any date).
After you have been a tenant for 1 year the landlord must give you 60 days notice in writing to terminate tenancy. He must also give 30 days written notice to raise the rent in any amount, and 60 days notice to raise the rent more than 10%. If the rent has already been raised within the past year and the next raise will make the total increase more than 10% then written notice of teh second rent increase must be given 60 days before the 2nd increase is due (ie can't get around the law by raising the rent 5% each month).

Nolo has some really excellent books on landlord and tenants rights. They are a bit pricy ($40 last I checked), but I STRONGLY recommend them for landlords, and they aren't a bad investment for tenants to either.
Knowing what your tenant's rights and getting back 100% of your deposit can easily save you $1000 in one move. Far to many unethical or ignorant landlords treat the tenant's deposit as their own personal "fix-it fund". Know what the rules are, know what your obligations are (no motor oil stains on the carpet, please. The living room was NOT the place to rebuild your Harley Davidson.....no. I am not kidding...)
