My HOA issued a special assessment that was due in Dec 2015. We have a homeowner (that rents out her unit) that still has not paid. Can we legally collect her rent income to cover the special assessment or does she have 6 months to pay by Colorado law?

I am a member of an HOA in Pennsylvania. My question is,

I am a member of an HOA in Pennsylvania. My question is, when a home in our Association is sold by a Realator, isn't the Realtor responsible based on the Agreement of Sale, which is standard in their industry, to provide the HOA Rule Book to the potential buyer so they can see if they have any concerns in complying to the rules?

My Home Owners Association's subcontracted a landscaping

My Home Owners Association's subcontracted a landscaping company. The landscaping company burst (property damaged) the main water line to my home and spliced my water hose in half. I was home the day of the property damage. I saw the landscaping company cutting the grass. I did not see the actual damage. I complained to the property management company to fix the property damage. The property management company agreed to replace the water hose. However, the property management denied bursting the water. My water bill was over $600. I did not have water for almost two months. The property management company and the landscaping company denied they were responsible for the property damage. My home owner's association fired both property management company and the landscaping company. I went to small claims' court and filed a law suit. My home owner's association also voted in a new government body of HOA representatives. The new HOA does not want to get involved in my legal dispute with the landscaping company. The landscaping company hired an attorney. We went to court. The attorney who showed up in court, informed the judge that he is not the assigned company. The attorney told the judge, he and I agreed on a settlement. The judge told us, a continuation court date will be set for two months from our good faith settlement. The attorney also told me I might get a fraction of my law suite claim. I have not heard from the lawyer in over a month and a half. The lawyer's secretary called and asked for my email address. I need help. I am worried the lawyer will use tactics to make this case last longer than expected. The lawyer suggested the case can last longer if there is no settlement. I need help on what to tell the judge, so the judge can make a decision without the lawyer attempting to make the case last longer.

What can be done in this situation... My friend has his name

What can be done in this situation...My friend has his name on a deed with a rental property he used to own with his ex-wife (10 years since divorce) and he wants to have his name removed. He is listed as the contact for tax purposes and has had his tax returns garnished by the IRS because she didn't pay the tax bill on the rental property income. The property is not mentioned in their divorce decree/MSA however she has possession of a handwritten note of him giving her the property. Is there anyway for him to recover the $3k-$4k that he has already paid? If so, how?Thank you!

I have owned a building since Feb 2016. It's a four family

I have owned a building since Feb 2016. It's a four family apt building. 3 of the tenants are good. One woman who has been there for about 2.5 years has mental issues. She is harassing the other tenants and their visitors. Yelling profanities, banging on their doors, threatening them and their pets. Her son has admitted she is 'off her meds' and is trying to deal with it, but he is young and seems unsure of what to do. The police have been called a few times, but she won't answer the door and they say they are limited on what to do. She is clearly digressing. At this point, my good tenants want to move, so I want to evict her.
