How often can an apartment complex water their grass in

How often can an apartment complex water their grass in Aurora CO? Don't they have to follow the same city ordinance as everyone else? Or because they they both even and odds they can water everyday?Complaints about smoking marijuana tothe apartment complex and nothing being done. Since it is legal in Colorado, but the lease states that it cannot be smoked in the complex do tenants have to follow? I have complained several times in regards ***** ***** smell and even spoke to the complex officer, yet nothing has been done.

I am the executrix of my mothers' estate in New York

I am the executrix of my mothers' estate in New York state. She passed away almost two years ago. In her will my sister and I will split her properties 50/50 (3 commercial). She also established an LLC and was the sole owner. As the executrix, I notified her debtors of her passing, including the banks of the 4 properties she owed. Three of the banks requested an original copy of her death certificate without requesting or making any changes. One company after receiving the notice immediately sent me a foreclosure notice of the property that they bought from the original lender. I should note that there was a late payment or two that I was not aware of until I came on as my mothers' executrix in 2014. All debtors were notified in February and March of 2015. I was served by Situs in March of 2015 two weeks after they received the notification.I have been negotiating since 2014 with Situs to settle without going into foreclosure proceedings. We have continued to pay our monthly payments that they have kept in escrow. The settlement they are proposing wants us to transfer ownership of the property to the LLC and sign an Assumption Agreement stating that we essentially have no rights if a missed payment or any other act occurs. The agreement obviously favors them but I do not want to assume my parents' debt even if it is transfer to the LLC.We have until Friday to decide or the foreclosure process will go forward.We had a consultation with a lawyer who thought that we should not have informed them of her death but I was told then that I had to. I don't know if I should sign the papers and hope for the best that we don't lose the property even if we sign the agreement.

Real Estate Attorney. I sold a property two years back I

For a Real Estate Attorney. I sold a property two years back I have a Real Estate License but have not actively sold for 19 years. I hired a Broker to list the property.To make a long story short another Broker representing herself made an offer. Afterlots of negiotations through my Broker she backed out because a TDS was not issued to her. My Broker verbally told me you do not need a TDS for a commercial property but after checking it was two residential units and two commercial units and yes it was required. I am suing him for damages I sold the property but for $250,000 less it is ascertaining I should have know because I was an agent can this fall on my lap? Thanks

In the Florida Courts, please help me understand how a judge

In the Florida Courts, please help me understand how a judge should respond to a plaintiff and defendant that have contradicting versions of the truth with no physical or written evidence in support of their respective positions. Further, what if an individual is allowed to be a witness (to testify) and has a vested interest that is aligned with the plaintiff, swore to his story and at the same time the defendant did not have a witness corroborating his version of the story? When is hearsay evidence and when is hearsay just that....hearsay? Is there case law that defines hearsay vs. truthful testimony? How does he said, she said get sorted out during trial or at a deposition? This is a case where a commercial property was sold as is. The buyer never did any diligence in having the property evaluated or inspected....but then after the sale was completed the buyer filed suit against the seller erroneously claiming that there had been no disclosure of a defective septic tank. In fact the buyer never once inquired about the septic tank during the 30 day period prior to the closing and the owner had no knowledge that anything was wrong with the tank. The buyer intends to produce a false witness to the alleged defective septic tank. How can one defend against someone who is producing a false witness?

I have filed a complaint in York County Superior Court in

I have filed a complaint in York County Superior Court in Alfred, ME against a lawyer who represented me in what would have been a simple Chapter 11 case. I had an important commercial real estate property valued easily at $3 million and with little more investment would have been worth exponentially more. The only lien on the entire property was for $225,000. A fraudulent foreclosure action was filed and thus the reason I filed Chapter 11 protection. On the next business day after filing Chapter 11 protection my property was sent to auction after a 17 minute hearing held prior to normal court hearing hours and prior to any creditor being noticed of this kangaroo hearing. I was destroyed in 17 minutes...thanks to what my lawyer did (intentionally). Now my case pending before the Superior Court is pending with a motion for summary judgment because I can't find a lawyer willing to serve as an expert legal witness to testify in court that most of all that my lawyer did was intentionally designed to cause me to lose this commercial property. My time is running out. How best can I find...and afford...to locate an expert legal malpractice lawyer to testify that my attorney's actions were not only wrong but never provided me the due care I deserved as his client?
