I need to get out of my lease due to uninhabitability of the condo. The agent initially agreed, and then changed her mind after I gave her the required email notification. I already have a new place, and they have a new tenant for my condo. Is she legally bound to her verbal agreement from last week?

Can I claim land that was designated as a proposed street in

Can I claim land that was designated as a proposed street in a plat filed more than 30 years ago?I own 9 contiguous lots in a rural area. The lots are arranged in a roughly square shape totaling 17.78 acres. The property was subdivided more than 30 years ago, and was initially owned by a woman who rode horses on the land. I bought the 9 lots from her in 1999 and immediately constructed a sturdy field fence around the perimeter, in order to move my goat raising operation from another ranch.On the plat, there is a proposed street/cul-de-sac that juts into the middle of the property about 300 feet to provide access to 5 of the lots (all owned by me). When I built the fence around the land back in 1999, I ran the fence line straight across the entrance of the proposed street, closing it off to the connecting street, and including the area as grazing pasture with my other lots. All my land/lots surrounding the proposed street are zoned for agricultural use.Is it possible for me to incorporate this 2/3 acre of land into my holdings? I have no plans to develop the land, therefore the proposed street is not going to be needed any time soon.

I purchased a temporary above ground pool. I want to set it

I purchased a temporary above ground pool. I want to set it up in my back yard. An HOA fellow said I had to get approval first. I've read the CCR's which state I have to have approval for any changes to landscaping relegated to the front yard are any permanent structures. I would like to know why I would have to seek permission for something that is not specifically restricted?JA: Because real estate law varies from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?Customer: UtahJA: Have you talked to a lawyer yet?Customer: Not yet I could see no reason to do so. Maybe I'm just obtuse.JA: Anything else you think the lawyer should know?Customer: No permit is required. It was purchased from Costco. It will be inside a confined area with 5' foot high block wall and gated. The purpose is for two overweight 68 yr old husband and wife to excercise. The pool demension is 18'x11'x48". Again it can be taken down for storage in the winter and we had one last us 3yrs when we lived in California so it's not permant.JA: OK. Got it.
