Q. Who is responsible 4 damage caused by third party installation company (water damage/asbestos disruption in a rental)?
A: If you have not made a claim with your own rental insurance you should do so. Additionally, depending on what your lease agreement says you or your rental insurance may be responsible for the repairs and depending on the contract you signed with the installer/store as well. It is hard to say as without reading the contracts, it is difficult to answer your question. Additionally, other variables may change the answer, thus you should contact a local landlord tenant or personal injury attorney to review the contracts. good luck.
Q. I recently bought property from a friend. We closed escrow May 13 but she won't leave. What do I do?

Q. Hello, I recently renewed my rental lease for my apartment and im planning on terminating it early.
A: Your current lease preempts your first lease and without seeing the lease agreement, it is hard to answer your question. But based on the current facts you have stated your current lease, which controls, you would have to pay 1.5 times the stated monthly rent if you terminate the lease early. Please note that most lease agreements include additional terms for early terminate of the lease. If you have not contacted a local landlord tenant attorney you should do so, so they can review your lease agreement. Good luck.
