I'm trying to fill out a free fillable tax form. It won't let me click "done with this form" or "efile" which?
From https://www.irs.gov/pub/irs-utl/... (emphasis mine):DONE WITH THIS FORM — Select this button to save and close the form you are currently viewing and return to your 1040 form. This button is disabled when you are in your 1040 formSo, it appears, and without them mentioning it while you're working on it, that button is for all forms except 1040. Thank you to the other response to this question. I would never have thought of just clicking the Step 2 tab.
Is it possible to get out of a Residential Lease that I signed 4 months ago for a one year agreement?
I am a landlord and also a licensed broker. Aside from simply trying to negotiate with the landlord to break your lease early, there's nothing you can legally do to break it and not be on the hook for the remainder of the lease term. HOWEVER, if you abandon the premises, the landlord has a legal obligation to make his/her "best effort" to re-rent the property out. If the landlord finds a new tenant, then you are off the hook from that point on. Any months during the lease where rent was not paid and the landlord didn't have a new tenant in place, you'll be on the hook for. If you choose not to pay those amounts, the landlord can pursue civil action against you to recover them.Whether your landlord will actually follow the law and make a reasonable effort to re-rent the property out really is determined by whether you were paying above/below market rate for the place, and/or how easy it will be for the landlord to come after you to recover that money.The one thing the landlord can not legally do is collect double rents (i.e from you and a new tenant).
How can I get a residential lease template online that I can print at home for free? Every site I go to wants me to pay. I just need a basic blank rental agreement in Arizona.
Realistically speaking, if you get one for free, you get what you pay for. I am a licensed sales associate, and I know my forms in and out. When another Sales Associate makes a mistake which is in my favor, I tell the tenants, because if push comes to shove, the party which is using my skill set is going to be benefiting from it.I look at it like this: if my tenant, which is in your place, has your lease, then if something happens where they can’t make rent, or to take you to court, then I will review the lease and tell them where I see the loopholes and show those holes to a lawyer.I saw a free lease once for one of my clients, I handed it to a lawyer buddy and he said it was ok to sign, because “it was swiss cheese and could keep a tenant in the place for 6 month without paying”Not being ASS, just being very real in this society where everyone is taking everyone to court.
Have you tried to sign your lease agreement online? How does it work? Is it free or do I have to pay?
I’m not aware of any landlords or management companies that charge a fee to sign the rental agreement online. In fact they are moving more and more to digital signatures as way to speed up and make signing more convenient.DocuSign is a very commonly used digital signature and document management program/service.
What happens if my landlord did not send me a renewal lease to sign like they usually do? Can I get my first, last & security deposits back now that there's no more lease agreement, or do I get it when I am ready to move out(I live in Florida)?
There may be local law which dictates what happens but normally once a lease has ended and neither party has made a change the term of the rental continues on a month to month basis. You need to read your lease agreement as the original lease may have automatically extended for another lease period (probably one year). As you are continuing to rent, you would not get deposits back until (typically) after up to one month after you have vacated, having fulfilled your rental period after given your required notice.
What is the law if my landlord did not send me a new lease to sign this year, do I get my first, last and security back? I assume I am now month to month.
Of course, it depends on the state and locality to some degree. Typically, leases provide that at the end of the year lease period (apparently a year for you), it does become a month-to-month tenancy. I don’t know any reason you would get your first month’s rent back….that was to pay for your first month. If you have prepaid your last month, I don’t know any reason you would get that back, either. It is to pay your last month. (Where I live, leases typically don’t provide for a “last month’s rent” but rather for a security deposit which can be up to the equivalent of two months rent in most cases.) You get your security deposit back, less any legitimate charges, after you vacate and return possession, typically.
How can I break my Pennsylvania home lease agreement without penalty? I got a new job in another state and have to move out immediately.
I’m going to make the assumption that you have read your lease agreement and that it states clearly that there is a penalty for breaking it. So, rather than hiring a lawyer in Pennsylvania who might be able to help you for a fee, you get on Quora in the hopes that some schmuck with some knowledge of Pennsylvania real estate law will help you out for nothing. How am I doing so far?
