My neighbor tore down my fence in the backyard. They felt it

My neighbor tore down my fence in the backyard. They felt it was there's but it was on my property. They now want to put a new fence up that is on my property. They put the fence posts up already. All without my permission. They are very apologetic and will pay for the fence. I understand that there are legal implications of them paying for the fence residing on my property. Just looking for guidance on what to do. Thanks Karen

I live in Texas and have heir property that is not divided.

I live in Texas and have heir property that is not divided. My Mom allowed my brother who is deceased to move in a mobile home but did not give him the land on which it sits. His adopted daughter is now in the home but has not paid taxes for 2014/2015. What can I do? There is also a water well that supplies water for four homes, except hers on the land. The water was shut-off recently for non payment and my neice i'm told paid to have the services reconnected and changed the name on the account from my mother's to hers. My mother worked hard over the years to keep the water rights to her property and I don't feel she should come in a try to take control without consulting our family. What are my rights?JA: Because real estate law varies from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?Customer: TexasJA: Has any paperwork been filed?Customer: paperwork filed for what?JA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: Yes. How can I get taxes from family who owe for 2014/2015 and how can I get name changed back for water well?

Real Estate Question: I'm a Broker in the State of Oregon. I

Real Estate Question:I'm a Broker in the State of Oregon. I submitted an offer that, in summary, offered $312,000 purchase price, requested the washer/dryer, and asked for a November 19th close date. Seller counter with three amendments: 312,000 purchase price, washer/dryer were leaving with the Seller, and an October 19 close date. We REJECTED this counter, and counter-countered with two amendments: $304,000 purchase price, and agreed that the washer/dryer could be removed from the agreement. We made no comment on changing the close date. Now, the Listing Agent is asserting that their close date stands, regardless of whether we rejected the counter, and because we didn't include a new close date in our counter-counter. In fact, we wanted the original close date, so I felt that we had no need for a concurrent statement on the counter-counter. Recently, the word "implicit" agreement have been used. I can't believe that this argument has any merit, but would like your thoughts.

We have a home in a private gated community. Our home has an

We have a home in a private gated community. Our home has an entry off the street such that if a car parks in front of our home it blocks the door which makes it unusable. This creates a fire safety, medical emergency and access issue. Our home is next to the community stairs to the beach and cars frequently park in front of our home. About six months ago our HOA board approved painting a red curb in front of our entry. However, a new board member initiated a review of all the red curbs in the community and recommended that the board remove our red curb. His justification was that it wasn't fair to the other homeowners that they did not have "reserved" parking in front of their homes. There is ample parking in our community and there are only a handful of homes that have the same situation as us. Do I have any recourse to prevent the board from removing our red curb?

A couple of years ago I purchased 32 acres of land for raising cattle. The land had a large pond of water on it. The previous landowner had retained 7 acres of the land for his use. After I purchased the land, the previous landowner enlarged the pond to extend under my fence line - which was then under construction. Recently, I had the pond filled in (on my side of the property) and another dug in a different location on my 32 acres. The previous landowner is threatening to sue me over water rights?JA: Because laws vary from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?Customer: Sorry, the State of TexasJA: Has anything been filed or reported?Customer: Not to my Knowledge.JA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: No, I don't think so.
