A new study conducted by Avvo shows that some longstanding assumptions and persistent stereotypes about divorce are being challenged by a shift in cultural values regarding long-term relationships. The study, conducted in California, uncovered data showing that many no longer view divorce as a failure, or a result of not “trying hard enough,” nor do they see marriage as something that is necessarily supposed to last a lifetime.
The presentation covered the basics of what problems tend to anger renters the most, based off data from a nationwide study conducted by Avvo’s research team, and how landlords can minimize the risk of legal problems with tenants.
A new national study released by Avvo on August 9th finds that that 70 percent of American renters believe residential rental prices in their city are too high, but nevertheless feel happy and even lucky to have their rental.
A recent Avvo survey looking at the experiences and attitudes of renters in Seattle found over eight in ten (83%) believe rental prices are too high. The averages bear out that opinion: when surveyed, the average tenant in Seattle pays $1,251 per month, as compared to the national average of $1,051 per month. That pricing pressure is reflected in the difficulty of finding good rental options, as nearly three-quarters (72%) said it was tough to find a good place to rent.
A recent survey by Avvo looking at the experiences and attitudes of renters in Boston, found that more than four out of five (81%) Boston-area renters believe rental prices are too high. Interestingly, although renters in other areas of the country with a growing tech industry blame the industry for causing rents to spike – 76% of renters in San Francisco, 57% in Austin and 58% in Seattle said this was true – less than one third of Boston area renters (29%) said the same.
The high costs appear to be translating into shorter tempers and quicker legal actions: San Francisco-area renters tend to be the most litigious in the country. One in five (20%) think lawsuits are the best way to solve problems with property managers, and 10% have actually sued or tried to sue (vs. 4% nationally.)
A survey recently conducted by Avvo on the experiences and attitudes of renters in Austin, found that more than eight in ten (82%) Austin-area renters believe rental prices are too high, and two-thirds (66%) wish people would stop moving to their city.
On the heels of recently announcing new options for their fixed-fee legal services, it appears Avvo is widening the availability of those services as well. Residents in Tennessee, Minnesota, Missouri and Oregon have now joined 18 other states in which Avvo has rolled out their full suite of legal options.
Adding to their list of legal tools, Avvo recently introduced a new set of options within their existing suite of legal services, with 22 new services in the areas of Business & Employment.
