The Tenants [^HOT^ Crack]l

I was performing a final walk though at end of lease (@ DFW area) and noticed a crack at countertop. Would you consider this as a normal wear and tear or a damaged item that tenant is responsible for the repair/replacement?

The Tenants [crack]l

Bad news for Ted Cruz -- last week, a group of amateur codebreakers were able to decipher one of the Zodiac Killer's messages from 51 years ago, bringing a new meaning to the old adage of "better late than never." Back in 1969, the mysterious killer, who committed five murders in the late 1960's and was ultimately never caught, sent a cryptic message, known as "340 cypher" to the San Francisco Chronicle. Now, more than a half-century later, a dream team consisting of an American software developer, a mathematician from Australia, and a computer programmer from Belgium, say they've cracked the code, revealing this very unsettling, spelling-error-rife message:

So, what does this mean for landlords and tenants? For landlords, you can breathe a sigh of relief, knowing that a tenant injured in one of your units will still have to prove that you owed them a duty of care, instead of being found automatically negligent by virtue of your status as a landlord. For tenants, on the other hand, if you are injured by a condition in your rental unit, you will still have to prove every element of a negligence claim against your landlord in order to recover.

Dubner continues: "A lot of writing about the poor tends to reduce living, breathing, joking, struggling, sensual, moral human beings to dupes who are shoved about by invisible forces. This book ... shows, day by day and dollar by dollar, how the crack dealers, tenant leaders ... cops, and Venkatesh himself tried to construct a good life out of substandard materials."

One cold February morning, I stood with him on a street corner as he met with one of his drug-selling crews. I was shivering, still unaccustomed to the chilling lake winds, and trying hard to focus on what J.T. was saying. He spoke to his men about the need to take pride in their work. He was also trying to motivate the younger members to brave the cold and sell as much crack as they could. In weather like this, the youngest members had to stand outside and sell while the ones with more seniority hung out in a building lobby.

It was true that sometimes his job looked hard. When his gang was warring with another gang, for instance, J.T. had to coordinate his troops and motivate 15-year-old kids to stand out in the open and sell drugs despite the heightened risk of being shot, beat up, or arrested. And it wasn't as though these kids were getting rich for their trouble. The B.K.'s, like most other street gangs, had a small leadership class. J.T. kept only a few officers on his payroll: a treasurer, a couple of "enforcers," a security coordinator, and then a set of lesser-paid "directors" who managed the six-person teams that did the actual street-level selling of crack.

L&I spokeswoman Karen Guss says the shutdown of a North Philadelphia warehouse this month is the beginning of a crackdown on such spaces, aided by technology that allows the department to cut through opaque ownership created by LLC's, or, limited liability corporations.

Guss says the building was empty by the time it was shut down, January 2nd, after Damaghi challenged L&I in court. Common Pleas Judge Abbe Fletman dismissed his request for injunction against the shutdown in a strongly-worded opinion, finding that "the evidence presented at hearing shows that continued operations pose a serious threat of harm to the tenants, their customers, and the surrounding neighborhood."

"If the way you make money is buying old warehouses and chopping them up inside with cheap, flammable building materials, wiring them up illegally, and then renting them out so that flammable gas canisters are right next to artist studios and beauty parlors, you're not really a landlord or a real estate investor," she says. "You're a gambler and you're gambling with lives of the tenants and the customers and the neighbors because of the heightened risk of fire or explosion.

New Jack City is a 1991 American action crime film based upon an original story and written by Thomas Lee Wright and Barry Michael Cooper, and directed by Mario Van Peebles in his feature film directorial debut. Released in the United States on March 8, 1991,[2] the film stars Wesley Snipes as Nino Brown, a rising drug lord in New York City during the crack epidemic, and Ice-T as Scotty Appleton, a detective who vows to stop Nino's criminal activity by going undercover to work for Nino's gang. Allen Payne, Chris Rock, Judd Nelson, Bill Cobbs, and Van Peebles appear in supporting roles.

In the New York City neighborhood of Harlem in 1986, Nino Brown and his gang, the Cash Money Brothers (CMB), become the dominant drug ring in the City once crack cocaine is introduced to the streets. His gang consists of Gerald "Gee Money" Wells, his best friend since childhood; enforcer and personal bodyguard Duh Duh Duh Man; gun moll Keisha; Nino's girlfriend, Selina Thomas; and her tech-savvy cousin, ex-bank teller Kareem Akbar.

Nino converts the Carter apartment complex into a crack house. Gee Money and Keisha kill rival Fat Smitty, the CMB throws out the tenants, and Nino forces the landlord out onto the streets naked. Meanwhile, undercover detective Scotty Appleton attempts to make a deal with stick-up kid Pookie, who absconds with the money. Appleton chases Pookie and shoots him in the leg, but the police release him. Nino's gang successfully run the streets of Harlem over the next three years.

When Det. Stone comes under pressure, Appleton volunteers to infiltrate Nino's gang and is partnered with loose-cannon Nick Peretti. Elsewhere, mobster Frankie Needles attempts to collect taxes from Nino, who refuses to pay. While Appleton and Peretti spy on Nino and his gang as they hand out Thanksgiving turkeys to the poor, Appleton spots Pookie, now a crack addict, as the man beats his junkie girlfriend. Instead of arresting him, Appleton gets Pookie into rehab. Later Pookie offers to help bring down Nino. Against his better judgment and the disapproval of Stone and Peretti, Appleton recruits Pookie as an informant in the Carter.

Cooper's rewrite was adapted from his December 1987 The Village Voice cover story entitled "Kids Killing Kids: New Jack City Eats Its Young," about the drug war in Detroit.[6] The account referred to the 20th anniversary of the 1967 riots in Detroit, and in its wake, the rise of crack cocaine gangs in the late 1980s, such as Young Boys Inc., and the Chambers Brothers.

Disputes between residential landlords and tenants are one of our office's most high-volume subjects. Our goal is to foster positive communications and understanding between both parties that leads to a smooth rental experience.

A landlord is required to use a written lease if the tenancy is going to be for a year or longer, or if the landlord owns five or more rental units in the state. Otherwise, the landlord and tenant may orally agree on what the rent and other terms of the rental will be. If you enter into an oral contract, it's very important that you know your and your landlord's legal rights and responsibilities. You should also have a clear understanding with your landlord about all terms in the agreement. However, it would be to your advantage to clarify things by having a written lease. Many landlords use a standard lease for all their tenants. However, you may want to negotiate your own terms with the landlord. Additional terms can be written on the agreement, and terms that are unacceptable to you can be crossed out. Of course, the landlord has to agree to these terms as well. Be sure that all changes are dated and initialed by both you and the landlord.

This is often the point on which landlords and tenants disagree. Unfortunately, there are no hard and fast rules that fit every situation. Common sense suggests that carpeting will need to be replaced periodically, and walls will need repainting, due to normal wear and tear. A landlord must expect to bear these costs as part of doing business. If, however, a tenant scorched a large area of the carpeting or dragged an appliance over it and ripped it, that could reasonably be considered damage. Leaving small holes from picture hooks in the wall would be wear and tear, while knocking a hole in the wall that would require drywall or plaster repair could be considered damage.Back to top

Q. Maria and two other tenants in her apartment complex circulated a petition to form a tenants' group to deal with the landlord's failure to make repairs. The landlord's nephew, who is also a tenant in the complex, reported this activity to the landlord. The landlord notified Maria that her rent would increase by $100 a month. Does Maria have to pay the higher rent or face eviction?

A landlord cannot evict you, increase your rent, or fail to provide services because you organize or join a tenants' organization. The landlord also can't take any of these actions if you complain to them, file a good-faith complaint against them with the housing inspection department or other agency, or file a lawsuit.Back to top

If a landlord receives a written Notice of Defect" that there is chipping or peeling paint, or a notice of a child with elevated blood lead level in the property, the landlord must respond by performing Modified Risk Reduction Measures within 30 days of receiving the notice. All tenants must be relocated while Risk Reduction Treatments are being performed. If you are required to leave your house for more than 24 hours while treatments are performed, the property owner must pay reasonable expenses for overnight housing and possibly meals for your family.

Q. Kevin and two fellow college students rented a house. The lease stated that only three non-related adults could occupy the house, but Kevin invited two more students to move in to share costs. After neighbors complained about loud parties, the landlord discovered the extra tenants. He told the students he was evicting all of them for breach of lease and they had to be out of the house by the weekend. Could the landlord do that? A. No. The landlord can evict the students, but must follow the process set forth by Maryland law. Eviction is a legal procedure. The landlord can't just tell you that you have to move or throw out your belongings. To evict you, a landlord must go to District Court to get a judgment against you. If a landlord moves your belongings out of the home, changes the locks or cuts off utilities without a court order, you should call the police and an attorney or a legal services organization. A landlord cannot evict you simply because you have filed a complaint or a lawsuit against him or her or because you have joined a tenants' association. This is called a retaliatory eviction," and you may be able to stop an eviction by showing the Court that your landlord is evicting you for one of these reasons. A landlord can evict you for:
