Am I supposed to tell my landlord that my boyfriend is moving in with me?

I am seven months into my second one-year apartment lease. My boyfriend and I have decided that he is going to move in with me. Am I legally obligated to tell my landlord? Will this put me in any legal issues with my lease, given that I am the sole name on it? I'm in British Columbia. [more inside]

Ethical obligation to pay for kicked out roommate's rent?

My roommates kicked out our 4th roommate mid-month without consulting me and have since made several decisions that I believe have prevented us from finding someone for next month.

Are leases transferrable from one landlord to another?

The owners of my apartment building have turned control of the building over from the extremely reputable apartment management company that I signed a lease with to a much less reputable company.

Why the change of heart Mr. Man?

I have been a great tenant for 2 years. I keep the place clean, I am quiet, I take out everyone's recycling, pay my rent on time (occasionally early), pay for my own carpet cleaning once a year to name a few of my glowing tenancy points. I have not physically renewed my lease in that time, but it states on the lease that I need to state my intention to stay and my lease is automatically renewed. Great! This year my landlord wants me to physically resign lease. No problem. He put a letter in my mail box with the new lease info. Same as always, so I said I would be over to sign. But two days ago he decided to change the terms... [more inside]

Forced into the car market: Lease or Buy?

We just lost our car in a garage fire, should we now lease or buy? We live in a condo, and a bunch of us homeowners lost our cars (and other belongings) in a garage fire. My wife and I want to know the hive-mind's opinion on whether we should lease or buy now that we're forced into the market for a new car. Some information: we're "tree-huggers" so we appreciate good gas mileage (and we're enamored with the upcoming 3rd gen Honda Insight). But we also drive the cars a ton, we drive everywhere. We live in Indianapolis, but our parents and families are on the east coast, so we drive to NYC and the D.C. area multiple times a year; not to mention the Chicago area, too. So that would also be a consideration whether we lease or buy... Thanks for anyone's opinion.

I'm Moving Out

Sort of like a question I asked before, but not quite as whimsical. I've reached the end of the lease with the apartment my wife and I live in. It's up as of February 1st and that's perfect, because we'd like to be out by then. The problem is that they're asking for a 60 day written notice and we just gave them notice today. In the last 7 days, Mrs. Bageena's father died and while we were out of town for the funeral, someone broke into our apartment and robbed us. [more inside]
