26 Questions Answered

Q. I am a single parent of a 13 year old whom father has passed away. I'm in my late 50's and was wondering what kinda
A: You could designate your sister as a preference for guardian for your daughter in a Will. If you need assistance in drafting a will or other estate planning documents feel free to reach out to me.
Q. I'm having trouble with my landlord he hasn't given me an eviction notice or anything but he boarded up my place
A: Are you wanting to schedule a free consultation? You can call (501) 891-6000 Monday to set something up. It probably goes without says, but your landlord is not allowed to lock you out of your home. However, you should be aware that if you had not been staying in your home for awhile and if you were behind on your rent, then your landlord could claim that the property had been abandoned, and he would have the right to secure it.
Q. how much time do I have legally in Arkansas to respond to landlords intent to change lease terms
A: Generally, it depends on the language of your lease. Does your lease give the landlord the right to change the terms before it expires? If not, then your landlord would have to wait until the end of the lease to change any terms. If your landlord gives you notice that he intends to change the terms of the lease upon renewal, you usually will have to sign a new lease with the new terms by the expiration date of the old lease. If you decide not to sign a new lease with the new terms, you should give your landlord a thirty day notice (or whatever notice requirement is in the lease) of your intent not to renew. Hope this helps.
