Personal Legal Plan

If I set no trespassing signs and beware of dog signs in my property line is my hoa and other people allowed to legally be inside my property line?

The law on property likely varies by jurisdiction but generally a property owner has a right to exclude others from their property. Likewise, there are often Easements and rights of way reserved to HOA's for maintenance and repairs and utility workers. You should review your closing documents and HOA By-Laws for reference. To discuss any specific laws, I recommend you schedule a consultation with your LegalZoom provider law firm. Jeffrey Lippman's offices are located in Leesburg, Virginia. Mr. Lippman is licensed to practice law in the District of Columbia and the state of Maryland, and his comments may only apply to those jurisdictions. If your question applies to a different jurisdiction you should check with an attorney in that jurisdiction. The information is not, nor is it intended to be, legal advice. You should consult an attorney for individual advice regarding your own situation.

What state do I choose when selecting a prepaid plan? In the state that I live in or where I need legal help?

When selecting a pre-paid plan for yourself, use the state you reside in. If you're selecting a plan for your business, select the state you formed your business in. Once you have your plan and you want to submit a request for a consultation, select the state where the issue applies. For example, if you have a plan based in California where you live, but you own property in Texas and have a question regarding that property, when you submit your question select Texas as the jurisdiction state.

Real Estate Lease

I live in california. Was wondering if I don't have a tenant at the time. Do I need their name before I can create a lease contract with legal zoom? Another question, do you offer rental applications as well too?

We currently have two plans that cover Residential Leases... a 7 day plan and a 30 day plan. Each plan allows you to update the terms of the agreement while your plan is active. Unfortunately, we do not currently offer a residential rental application.

Is this form applicable for month to month rental?

Lease requirements vary not only by State, but also at times by locality. It also may vary on whether this is a residential or commercial lease. The form document may be a decent starting point, but you will definitely need modifications. This might be achieved through use of your document review benefit.
