Legal Answers
18 Questions Answered

Q. Can I include my NSF returned checks from my checking account with my bankruptcy? in Az?
A: Although overdraft fees are an unsecured debt, the bankruptcy law specifically excludes NSF checks from being discharged. You should list the debt in the bankruptcy schedules anyway, but most likely the debt will survive. Also, if the NSF check is not made good quickly, the store MAY submit it for prosecution by the County Attorney. Basically, writing a bad check in Arizona is a crime and you MAY be fined and serve time if the County Attorney takes the case. You should speak to an experienced bankruptcy attorney before you proceed.
Q. What are my rights as a landlord whose tenant breaks their lease?
A: You have 2 options:1 file a forcible detainer action now for the rent and late fees and attorneys fees due now, or wait until the property is re-rented and sue for rent and late fees until that point. Since, you are not likely to collect a lot of $ from the tenants, you may consider suing them now, so that at least you get possession. Please inspect the property to see if its damaged and include estimates of the damages in the suit along with the rent and late fees. Contact our office if you have any questions. Notice: I am not your lawyer unless we enter into an engagement agreement in writing. This is only general information. It is NOT legal advice, and it may not work for your specific situation. It is impossible to evaluate a legal problem without a comprehensive consultation and review of all the relevant facts and documents. I strongly encourage you to consult with a local lawyer to get legal advice and help with your specific situation.
Q. I am a landlord who owns a duplex. The tenants of this duplex can not get along and are bringing me into their petty
A: The answer really depends on the nature and subject matter of the feud. however, your obligations to your tenants are limited to your written lease agreement and the safety of the duplex. If you have provisions in the lease about common area maintenance or noise or pets and if the dispute is about those things than you should enforce the provisions of the lease that deal with those violations. This could mean an written notice and possible eviction. Otherwise I would stay out of it, and if the Tenants need other help, they should call the police or sue each other in small claims court. Hope this helps.
