Legal Answers
619 Questions Answered
Q. Can my landlord serve a mailed eviction letter if my rent is only 14 days late?
A: Look at your lease. Often there are provisions in the lease that you have waived notice for non-payment of rent. If you didn't pay in the grace period, then the notice may well be proper.
Q. I have a commercial tenant who sent their rent in by USPS and apparently was lost. Would this constitute a breach?
A: Check the terms of your lease - but typically rent is paid when you receive it. Not when the tenant puts it in the mailbox.
Q. Does the agreement need to explicitly say my spouse will split the equity with me? It only states he will refinance.
A: It's always recommended that documents be as specific as possible.
