I am one of the growing number of people who are concerned

I am one of the growing number of people who are concerned about a neighbors security cameras looking into their backyards, even if the backyard is somewhat shielded by a purpose built and community approved privacy wall. We paid for extra for this when we built the home as we wanted a private pool/spa area. Our neighbor just installed his cameras (real cameras around entire perimeter) and it potentially looks directly into our pool/spa and our garage personnel door. Is their any standard by which I can have them at least move the camera below wall height. He won't do it voluntarily as he cares little about our "neighborly" relations.JA: Because real estate law varies from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?Customer: Surprise, Maricopa County, ArizonaJA: Have you talked to a lawyer yet?Customer: No...I really hesitate to make a bigger issue, but will if you think I need to. If so, are there laws to stand behind?JA: Anything else you think the lawyer should know?Customer: Not really....it just makes my wife and I very uncomfortable that the home we enjoyed for the last 12 years now seems to be not as we envisioned when we purchased.

I had a new roof installed about 2 1/2 years ago. I now have a leak. I called the roofing company who did the job but the owner has closed that LLC business and now works for another roofing company. He came out, went up on the roof and looked at the problem, told me it was his workers fault, but since he closed that company it would cost me $1250 to fix it and he had no legal or moral responsibility

I need to know if I need to seek council. I was attacked by

Hi,I need to know if I need to seek council. I was attacked by 2 teenage boys last October at a haunted fort event at Wa. fort Casey park on Whidbey Island. The people who setup this event let the boys go instead of calling the police. The next day I heard that the boys were bragging about it on the parks dept, facebook page, by the time I got home the post was gone. I went to see my doctor and x-rays were done.At this point a L&I insurance claim was open. My doctor decided the best approach would be to send me to PT. I became really depressed that my back and neck was not getting any better. I went back to see my doctor twice regarding. In March I had blood work done and my doctor decided to lower my thyroid medicine without even comparing it to the previous blood work from my previous doctor from Nevada. I went back in to talk with my doctor and told her I was , tired, depressed, and that my thyroid t4 doesn't covert into t3. At this point she decided she needed to lower my does again. I requested seeing a spine specialist because nothing was getting done to help my back and neck. I saw a spinal specialist finally in May and he had a MRI done . The MRI showed that I have 2 bulging disk in my neck. In the mean time I decided to find a new doctor who was interested in my health issues. I asked my Doctor for a copy of my records. The doctors staff harassed me for 2 weeks to get them. When I was getting ready to go to my new doctors office I was going through my medications and realized that a medication Cetirizine which I had been on for years had been ordered by the doctor but never called it into my pharmacy for 11 months. I received a copy of all medications filled by my pharmaacy and that one was not listed. I'm at the point now where I don't know how to handle this. My Spine specialist is requesting epidural shots in my back as a first approach to relieve my pain. L&I are dragging there feet approving them and I'm sitting here going on 8 months without any relief. I have been let down by everyone involved in this accident and in my health care.

Next door neighbor installed Attic Ventilation Fan. It

next door neighbor installed Attic Ventilation Fan. It points directly at the side of my house where my bedrooms and bathrooms are. We are 50 years living in this house & they are new neighbors. It is noisy and I have to keep windows closed at all times when it is running. It works off a thermostat, and runs nonstop and for many hours at a time day and night. City bldg. inspector says it is not above 65 deciples, therefore, not breaking bldg. code. But I read somewhere there is such a thing as ambient noise, and it cannot exceed '5' onto your neighbors property, and that the proximity of the fan in relation to my house should be taken into consideration (such as facing our bedrooms). The fan is approx. 7 or 8 feet from their attic to property line. Is this true about ambient noise??Also, can neighbor 'exhaust' their hot air at my house???? Why can they point their fan to blow all their hot air & attic dust at me & onto my home??? Please help! Rancho Palos Verdes, CA in the County of Los angeles.

I had a disabled parking given to me by the administration

I had a disabled parking given to me by the administration and was destroyed and removed by a resident, the administration painted "blue" the parking but eventually they repainted the parking eliminating the one given to me because my medical condition, I don't use a elevator, don't live on a 2nd floor but cannot walk more than a 100 feet anymore and that's why the parking was granted, I went to the office and discuss the problem with the property manager and provided medical proof of my impairment in exchange I receive a arrogant response to a person with physical limitations and told me that has to be evaluated by their lawyers, in the meantime I am having physical anguish over an issue was given to me in a nice way, should I sue.
