Howdy, So I moved into this current unit, and the landlord

Howdy,JA: Hello. How can we be of help?Customer: So I moved into this current unit, and the landlord for this property didn't properly check the unit before moving in to ensure it was habitable. Upon moving in I noticed a strange scent but coughed it up to the owners old cats. I lived in it for almost a wek before realizing it was a gas leak. I contacted the landlord, who procrastinated almost a week and a half, forcing me to make multiple requests, before a technician came out to fix. Found out it was so bad they had to turn off my gas for a few days and completely replace my stove. Also realized there was water damager under the sink that was not disclosed to me that had a accumulated a large amount of black mold. I cleaned up the black mold, but theres a hole going straight through the wood , destroying the bottom of the cabinet, and a notable strong mildew scent. I am 99% positive there is black mold growing under the cabinet through that hole too, and have been talking to the landlord for almost a month now to get this replaced, but he keeps pushing back the repairs. Is there anything we could do about this or am I up shit creek without a paddle..?JA: What confuses you?Customer: You still there Tina..?JA: What confuses you?Customer: Or Pearl I should sayJA: Because laws vary from place to place, can you tell me what state the property is in?Customer: IllinoisJA: Has any paperwork been filed?Customer: In terms of a lawsuit..? No.JA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: Nope, I think thats everything.

Basic info: Broward County, FL. Homeowner purchased a condo

Basic info: Broward County, FL. Homeowner purchased a condo in 2004. She and her life partner (legal domestic partner) have lived in said condo, every winter, from 2003 until September 2015. Homeowner became ill around that time and did not return to the condo again before her death in late 2016. Her legal domestic partner is not on the deed. However, homeowner had an irrevocable living trust, in which an amendment was done in 2006 (by the homeowner), stating that homeowner's legal domestic partner (and non-working, disabled legal dependent), is now entitled to live in said condo, with all expenses (taxes, association fees, maintenance costs) to be paid by the trust, for as long as the living partner is alive, or until trust funds run out. The condo association, and their lawyers, have been provided with a copy of the legal domestic partnership certificate and a copy of the full irrevocable living trust, plus the amendment. Is it legal for the condo association to refuse access to the legal domestic partner and legal dependent of the deceased homeowner?

I am a Tenant and wth 3 kids I recently renewed my lease

I am a Tenant and wth 3 kids I recently renewed my lease 02/01/2017 the office called me the last day to renew because I forgot about it and we did with my partner. my partner moved out of my apartment more than a month ago 03/01/2017, I called my landlord to remove him but they refused. The Landlord found out I have 3 kids and so they send a letter saying we are over ocupants they gave me 21 days to solve the issue. I work part time my income is low so they asked me to get a co-signer because I'm not making enough income to stay in the 2 bedrooms apartment. Today is the 20th day of the notice they send to me and I have a co-signer now but they have made up a decision for me to vacate or move to a 3 bedroom apartment with my 3 kids, 7 years old twins and 23 Months oldToddler. They asked me today to sign the 60 days vacate form I didn't. Should I sew them and how do I get started

I own rental property in Syracuse, NY. The deed to the

I own rental property in Syracuse, NY. The deed to the property is clear and in my name (not under mortgage). It's a multi-unit property with 4 apartments, of which the rent's gross income = $2450. My credit is bad in the United States. Hence, when I purchased this property over years ago, I paid cash for it. And I bought it for an income property, which has been doing quite well for me. However, I do not live in the US. I'm an American citizen living in Canada (just across the border) as a legal resident.Here in Canada, my wife owns a home and pays a mortgage. We'd like to rent it and buy another home to live in. However, they'd want 12% interest as opposed to the 4% she's paying now--which brings me to my question, since I would like to get a mortgage in Canada, however, I need a large sum for down payment. Hence the question:Is it possible (or feasible) to get a mortgage on my property in Syracuse, NY at a decent interest rate?
