I rent in Santa, Ca and the ownership of the property is

I rent in Santa Barbara, Ca and the ownership of the property is being transferred from a trust to an LLC (to reduce owner liability). When my wife and I moved in, we signed a one year lease. That was a little over 6 years ago and the lease was never renewed. So, we have been on a month to month lease since. Yesterday evening (6/27/17 4:30pm) I was handed a new lease with a rent increase and more rules/disclosures. The cover letter included with the contract states that if we don't sign a return the new lease by the end of the month that a termination notice will be served. It concerns me that we are releasing them from some liability without enough time to properly vet the new contract. The new contract includes section about Harmful substances and Lead paint contamination. I have digital copies of both the new and old lease and the cover letter if it would help. Do I need to sign this in the allotted time (before Friday) or is the some minimum time required by law for me to evaluate the new lease?

Second opinion] Do I have a substantive right to production

Second opinion] Do I have a substantive right to production of my requested docs which are financial in nature (statements for IRAs, JROS retirement annuities, IRA annuity w. death benefits, trust accts., investment accts., medical practice assets, bank accts. & loan apps)?Estate atty claimed privileges for his refusal to provide any of the docs. Financial docs are facts, not communications; they have nothing to do w. my ex having sought legal repre., and they are available to others. I needed those docs to prove that the marital assets my ex concealed were in existence at div. time. They were essential to show genuine issues of material fact, and, therefore, he was granted S.J. on all my claims except the 1 for unpd. alimony. (Judge knew about this situation long before hearing on MSJ.)This lack of docs DID determine the outcome (the final judgment) of my creditor claims proceeding, but the probate judge said the case IS appealable. I timely appealed to circuit ct. and motioned probate ct. for new trial.Denial of my claims for formerly-hidden assets has caused me great financial harm.

We recently put a contract in a home advertised with a pool

We recently put a contract in a home advertised with a pool and that it needed a new liner. Upon home and pool inspection it was discovered that the pool may need over $10,000 worth of repairs and not just a liner. What can I do?JA: Because real estate law varies from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?Customer: Moyock, North CarolinaJA: Has anything been filed or reported?Customer: I am not sure what you are referring to.JA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: Well we had the home and pool inspection on Thursday. The home was advertised as having a pool that only needed a new liner. After the pool inspection it was determined that they have not used the pool for 2-3 years and it is in poor condition. Is there anything I can do about the fact that it was advertised with a pool? We removed a contract from another house because we have daughters that wanted a pool, now we may need to put anywhere from $10,000-$20,000 into the pool to get it to run again.
