It appears that this is legal. It counts as water resale, and for the case where none of the flats have their own individual meters, the bill can be split in an number of ways. Splitting it equally is, according to the rules, perfectly valid. If any dispute with the landlord over the bill cannot be resolved by mutual agreement, it is possible, as a last ...

I assume "property management" works on behalf of the freeholder or a group of leaseholders and the landlord is a leaseholder - otherwise it would ultimately be the landlord's decision alone. It's common for leasehold agreements to prohibit pets unless there is consent. The terms of the lease are important. If there is nothing about pets, then they ...

You're asking two questions and I think a mod will be along to ask you to focus on one. Re water bills: in my experience each dwelling had its own water bill. Perhaps anonymously or pseudonymously call your water authority to check with them. As for noise: in the first instance raise it with your neighbour; if it continues raise it with your landlord; if ...

If you pay rent per calendar month, you pay the same amount each month on the same date. In your case, the 30th. The rent is calculated by dividing the total for the year by 12, or by multiplying the weekly rent by 52/12 (4.3 recurring). You don't pay for 31 days in January, 28/29 in February, 31 in March, 30 in April etc.

You can wait to be evicted. If you are not asked to leave then you can stay. Explain and leave notice that you tried to contact and received no response.

A lot have people touched on the concept of incitement here. I don't think it applies unless you were specifically asking for violence with the sign. Also, that seems to specifically refer to criminal law, not civil law. I am certainly no expert on law, but I would say is that it would certainly be up to the interpretation of a judge, and it's not going to ...

The landlord is not free of liability risks. In California, everybody is responsible for injury brought about by lack of ordinary care or skill in management of his or her property or person. This applies to landlords, falling under Business Proprietor’s Liability for the Criminal Conduct of Others. Therefore the landlord must use reasonable care to protect ...

No People are responsible for their own crimes and torts. A landlord’s obligations to third parties is limited to acts and omissions of the landlord, not the tenant.

Certainly, "Tortious interference" comes to mind. While it's a difficult one to prove, there are typically 6 elements: The existence of a contractual relationship or beneficial business relationship between two parties (possible problem here). Knowledge of that relationship by a third party. Intent of the third party to induce a party to the ...

There's a material question here, but you worsen your situation only slightly by acknowledging receipt of the communication, and you worsen it greatly by stating in writing that you agree with the communication. (I don't know what you mean by "accept"). You're responsible only to the extent that you incite violence. This requires you be attuned to what ...

The only avenue for tenant liability would be if the tenant is responsible for the damage. The courts have not assigned responsibility for damage resulting from other people's disagreement with a political expression to the person expressing the viewpoint. You are generally free to peacefully express yourself, and as a renter this would be part of your right ...

You will not be legally liable. You are not responsible for other people's irrational or even violent reactions to your protected speech. If you could be held liable for other people's irrational or violent reactions to your peaceful speech, then exactly what your landlord is trying to do here could happen. People could threaten violence or harm as a way to ...
