I'm not sure if it's a legal issue or not. My mortgage was turned over to another mortgage company with a negative escrow balance.JA: Because real estate law varies from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?Customer: the new holders didn't take out enough escrow money the first few months of 2016, making the escrow debt even higher.JA: Have you talked to a lawyer yet?Customer: No.JA: Anything else you think the lawyer should know?Customer: I have different papers from the first mortgage company showing different amounts of money. Weather it's in the positive or negative. My final analysis, which is in the negative, is different from my 1098 which shows a positive outcome.JA: OK. Got it.

In March, 2016 I contacted Blades Lawn Care in regards to

In March, 2016 I contacted Blades Lawn Care in regards ***** ***** maintenance for my yard. After meeting with Mr. Blades he offered me a package where I would pay 1000.00 for him to maintain my yard until March, 2017 which included winterizing my lawn when it got cold. I paid the first 500.00 during our visit and the remainder a month later. Initially he did exactly what he said and stayed in constant contact in regards ***** ***** he was doing. May 5th, he came out to cut my yard and when I arrived home from work I noticed my ac unit for my home was not working. I had someone come out the next morning to take a look at it and the repairmen stated some wiring appeared to be cut from a weed eater. I contacted Mr. Blades who stated he would pay for the repairs because he had someone new working with him the day he cut my lawn. He asked that I gave him to the middle of the month which was not a problem. That time came and went and I heard nothing from him. I contacted him and he asked that I gave him to the end of the week which I did, however I never heard anything from him. I contacted him once again and texted him in between and he stated his lawn equipment had been stolen and he needed time to get things back going. Mr. Blades has made no attempt to contact me. He has also done this to a friend of my whom I recommended to him as well. I have found since all this has occurred that he has done this to someone else whom I don't know. I am now having to pay someone else to maintain my lawn after paying him to maintain my lawn for an entire year. I would like to know how do I go about getting the money that I paid for my lawn as well as the money that I had to pay for the repairs of my ac. I have all documentation for all of our transactions.

I live in Norman, OK in mobile home park. Our lease (we own

I live in Norman, OK in mobile home park. Our lease (we own the home) for the lot is 4 years. We have been here 2 years & 3 months. We were never informed of prior year flooding and we had flood following Spring and lost 2 cars and had $7,000 in damages to home. Can we get out of lease due to the nondisclosure of flooding history? I've read the landlord has to disclose if there has been flooding in past 5 years of lease signing. I want to move because I'm terrified of flooding again. When it flooded here, 3 mobile homes on my street toppled into each other and were ruined. Thank you for your time. What do I do?

This has been weighing on me and my husbands minds and we

Good afternoon, this has been weighing on me and my husbands minds and we figured we might just ask someone if we should take action. In November of 2013 we moved to Australia and hired a property management company to help us with our house that we had recently purchased. They seemed incredibly nice and helpful in the beginning, but as time passed, it seemed as though they just didn't care about our business, as they had just signed a big contract with a large upscale apartment complex. While we were overseas, we rarely heard from them, and I had to email and call them to check the status of things with our house. We moved back from Australia in June of 2015 and our house was still being rented out until May of 2016. We scheduled a property inspection to check how things looked. Shortly after the inspection, it was brought to our attention that there was a tremendous ice dam that had formed during the time we were overseas and were never notified in regards ***** ***** bad the damages were that resulted from it. They did not respond to the tenant for 4 days during that time, and it resulted in a tremendous amount of damage to the inside and the outside of our property. We are now in a position where the tenant refused to clean our house before moving out, as well as left with all the damages resulting from their negligence. Part of us wants to take action against them, as we know from other clients of theirs that this was not the first occurrence of this property management company causing all these problems to someone elses property. Can you please let me know your thoughts?

Yesterday I arrived in Austin, Texas to an apartment I had

Yesterday I arrived in Austin, Texas to an apartment I had viewed online and signed a lease for based on photos (of a different unit) and a 1min 30sec digital tour of the apartment. Once physically in the apartment I found it not to be in livable condition. Aside from obvious aesthetic things like it being filthy and missing a drawer in the kitchen, the dishwasher is filled with disgusting, stagnant water, there is mold and mildew in the bathrooms, large holes in the wall above the baseboards, and cockroaches among other bugs both alive and dead throughout the house. My girlfriend and I stayed in a hotel last night and told them that we refused to take ownership of the apartment in it's current condition. At this point, it seems like they will likely not agree to the necessary repairs of the apartment, and I would like to know what leg I have to stand on in that situation.

I am dealing with an HOA that last two years has not been

I am dealing with an HOA that for the last two years has not been able to get my access key to the pool to work after several emails and phone calls. I have not paid my dues this year because of this and they have turned me over to collection saying that I must pay my dues to have access to the pool. I figured if I pay it I have no leverage over them to get my issue resolved. What should I do?
