We own a rental house in Las Vegas, NV. About a month ago, a

We own a rental house in Las Vegas, NV. About a month ago, a couple of kids threw large rocks over the concrete fence from the property next door (an apartment building) and broke many windows of our house, costing us thousands of dollars in damage. They have not caught the kids yet. The apartment building next door has an alley way paved with large loose rocks and many kids use this alley as a short cut to get to and from the school. The kids used these rocks to throw over the fence from inside the apartment property. The alley has a gate, but it is so low that kids can easily hop over. My questions are 1) can we claim damage against the owner of the apartment building next door as their rocks were used to break our windows and they were thrown from their property? 2) can we demand that the apartment owner put up a better gate so that their alley way won't be accessible to kids taking short cut to school? Thanks for your advice.

My boyfriend and I signed a lease that's not up until August

My boyfriend and I signed a lease that's not up until August 2017. He came in yesterday and started packing and I was told, he is moving out and will be back today to get the rest of his stuff. While I can afford to pay the rent, it will put me in a terrible bind and stress me greatly. He was paying the rent and had me get the money orders for the rent with my signature on the money order. Is there anything I can do?JA: Because laws vary from place to place, can you tell me what state the property is in?Customer: Texas, a senior apartment with a waiting list. I would need some time to find another place to stay or otherwise sleep in my car.JA: Has any paperwork been filed?Customer: Like what? I have a lease with both our signatures and the office is closed today.JA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: no, not really

In 2011 I lived I moved to Columbia, SC. I lived in my apartment complex 6 months before moving back to San Diego. The lease had a buyout clause in it. I payed one final payment and never received any further communication from the complex. I informed them I would be leaving with a hand written intent and dropped off my keys per their request. I found out recently that they never terminated my lease and filed a notice to vacate with the local court. I know have this notice to vacate and a large collection on my rental history. I do not know where to begin. Should I pay the collection? How can I get this record fixed?

The apartment complex management (whom I already have issues

The apartment complex management (whom I already have issues with) have requested that I leave the apartment for one week for major constructions where I cannot access my apartment dues to the liability of the constructions (they are laying cement in the entire flooring). They offered to put me in another apartment for this period. Do I have the right to reject their offer due to inconvenience since the apartment is not furnished and ask instead for a reduction in the rent for this period?
