My fiancé and I moved into a new apartment about a month ago. The complex had advertised a move in special on their website that said: "Move in by August 15th and recieve your second month free." There was no other fine print on the page ANYWHERE saying "for tenants who qualify" or anything. All the sudden, the office manager is denying us the special based on a DUI charge that is over 8 years old! When we got our copies of the already signed lease, all the sudden we saw that they had hand written that we weren't getting the special bc of the background check. When we try to plead our case or describe how the promo was falsely advertised, the manager gets very rude. This situation seems shady & I feel like we are being cheated without a VALID reason. Is there anything we can do about this?
This is NOT a criminal defense question; It is either a "landlord-tenant" or a "real estate" question. If you want...
My ex was arrested in January 2014 for a 2nd DUI and quit his job, he has a wealthy family who "take care" of all of his financial responsibilities since his arrest there fore my ex will not look for work. The children have been doing with out medical coverage, child support, etc. The children have also stopped exercising 50/50 time share because my ex cannot transport them to school, activities, etc. I now drive them everywhere and pay for everything. I have shown kindness and patience since his arrest but the excuses as to why he is not getting any job possible have worn me down. Is there anything I can do at all? Enforcement? Contempt? Modification?
Yes..you can do many things and it all starts with your Final Judgment. If he is not working and living off of his...
Got in a car accident 5 months ago where I woke up in the hospital. No dui was mentioned just received a ticket for careless driving. It was only my car involved in accident, no one else involved. Blood drawn was obviously done and a month ago I received post card in the mail that stated a warrant was out for my arrest. I turned myself in and had my first hearing today where it was mentioned I was getting 5 days of Jail and an enhanced fine for a high blow and car accident. (I did not do a breathalyzer so not sure why she said blow).
If you are convicted of DUI then probation is mandatory and jail would be in addition to probation (which will start...
I did get 30 months doc so I do have a bad back round and want to avoid going back! I did blow .22 and I have a bpo license when they pulled me over. what are my chances I have been home for a while have two jobs and I now have my six year old son back. I don't want to leave him again over my stupidity what can I do?
First thing you need to do, is stop driving. You don't want to pick up another case while this one is pending. Second...
My fiancé and I moved into a new apt about a month ago. The complex advertised a move in special on their website that said: "Move in by August 15th & receive your second month free." There was no fine print ANYWHERE on the page requiring a clean background check, just to move in by the certain date. Now the manager is denying us the free month because of a DUI charge that is over 8 yrs old! Also, when we got our copies of our signed lease, they added a handwritten notation in the margin that we wouldn't be getting the special based on our 'criminal history.' When we try to plead our case or describe how the promo was falsely advertised, the manager gets very rude. This situation seems shady & I feel like we are being cheated without a VALID reason. Is there anything we can do about this??
This is a tricky question with a sticky set of facts. There are several issues. FIrst, your lease may not even be a...

While I agree that this sounds suspect, if you signed the lease with that provision in the margin, you signed subject...
My fiancé and I moved into a brand new apartment. When they ran our background/credit check, they got a red flag bc of some past "criminal history" of mine. There are only two instances this could be: 1) A misdemeanor DUI I was convicted of 8yrs ago that I paid out and completed courses for. 2) A misdemeanor petty theft case that resulted in no conviction. The online offer clearly states "move in before 8/15/14 and receive the special." No further fine print. We met that standard. But, after we signed our lease, they hand wrote "pending qualification" on our lease. When my fiancé confronted the property manager about being denied the free month of rent, she read out the list of "criminal activity" she found on me to him. Do we have a leg to stand on here? Is this situation legal?
Your question seems to be in the wrong category. So I will move it to "landlord/tenant" so you get better answers.
