In Chicago, I lived in a bldg on 3rd floor of a 4 floor

In Chicago, I lived in a bldg on 3rd floor of a 4 floor building that had a functioning elevator for 3years that was only not working at most for 4days in total at 2separate instances over 3years. as soon as I moved to the 4th floor and signed a lease to rent an apt on the 4th floor (up 45 stairs) under the pretense that this elevator would be working, the elevator is not working for over 10days. That's up and down 180stairs to do 1load of laundry. I am disabled and have had 5 surgeries on my ankle from falling down stairs once.Can I withhold rent per day until it is fixed and deduct it? Also, if it does not get fixed for weeks can I give a 30 day notice and break the lease? Old let me know. Thanks. Colleen 312 402_2363.

I purchased a home in 2006 In Orlando Florida. I put a friends name on the deed as she was living in Orlando as a student. I lived in the house and paid the mortgage and all expenses associated with hose and its maintenance. I left Orlando in 2009 but continued to all expenses (100 %) with this individual living in the house, making no contribution. I am now trying to sell the house and have request she sign a quit claim. She refuses. I would like to at least recoup some of the 450K that I have invested in the past 7years. She moved out of the house in June of 2015 and purchased her own home with a sizeable amount of cash. What can I do to sell the home and not have to give her anything. She never invested or made any financial contributions. I have all banking information to prove the same.

I live in a condo with a hoa. The president of the hoa sold

I live in a condo with a hoa. The president of the hoa sold her condo and closed on Aug. 8 but did not resign until Aug. 25. She is buying another unit in the complex but has not closed on that unit. Is the condo association responsible for any fees that she incurred while she was not a home owner? She did contact the organization's lawyers during this time. I do not know if they were aware of her not being a home owner.JA: I think they do a wonderful job. All Experts must pass our rigorous 8 Step Expert Quality Process.
