I have a home that appraised at nearly 400,000 several years

I have a home that appraised at nearly 400,000 several years ago. It was going to be my nest egg. My 1+ acres is in the Poconos where 3 huge water parks have been developed within 10 miles of my home and a 4th has been proposed. Since then the pond and stream directly in front of my home in plain view from the road is completely dry. Is there anything I can do about the depreciating value of my home due to these parks draining our water supply?

My question is my neighbor's drainage has been rerouted onto

My question is my neighbor's drainage has been rerouted onto my property. The City of Aurora says both properties should drain from the back of the property to the street. I documented with pictures how the drainage is coming under the fence onto my property under my gate down the rock path that is on my property to the street. The City that is how it should drain. I have lived in this home for 9 years and it has never drained onto my property in the past. Need to know what my rights are?

An interior centrally located atrium open to the sky with no

An interior centrally located atrium open to the sky with no drainage flooded the house from rain. My renters insurance denied the claim calling it a groundwater flood. Owner says he is responsible for his home only and will now do home repairs that include correcting the darn on drainage atrium. I think it should have been disclosed. My Travelers adjuster said it was a problem waiting to happen he had never seen and interior atrium with no drain out. What can I do?

Few weeks ago At&t was suppose to repair a line that

Hi my name is*****few weeks ago At&t was suppose to repair a line that connects to a box in our yard. We were told that an individual we be coming to repair the line which we were fine with, they gave us a two week window. A third party company ended up coming out, they did not knock on our door our attempt to notify us that they were coming in our yard to burry cable. They ended up burying a cable where a temporary line was lying across our entire yard. I tried to stop the contractors but they would not stop I told them we had lines running across our yard and I was afraid they would hit one. I didn't have a problem with them burring lines across our easement area with the rest of our utility lines but not across our personal property. In the process the company ended up cutting the burried electric line that runs to our koi pond. We have been unable to run the pond for three weeks, our fish are dying and the pond is now a mess and will have to be professionally cleaned. On top of this since the line is now running across the entire yard , not in a straight line, as well as a second ditch where the electric had to be removed to find where the pond line was cut, we are worried we will now have drainage issues and are thinking we will have to have the yard re grated. In addition, we are also worried that At&t could possibly take easement over the area surrounding the new line.At&t did send a representative out that documented the damage and told us it was the worst job he had ever seen. We have a claim number however we have been trying for weeks to have someone from Sedgwich, at&t's claim agent to resolve this matter with no luck. Is there anything we can do?

Can I file a case against my apartment leading agency for

Can I file a case against my apartment leading agency for mold causing health issues?We notified maintenance of problem in 3/2015 and all they did was apply caulk over the old calk. Around December 2015 I started having what I thought were just really bad allergies (runny nose, itchy eyes, fatigue) and my boyfriend started snoring so badly I tried to convince him to go to an ENT.Fast forward to April 2016, and my "allergies" got so bad my eye swelled up and I ended up having to go to the emergency room and having an orbital CT scan to find out I had cellulitis around my eye. Since then I have been on Flonase nasal spray, cetirizine, loratadine, and Allegra, Naphcon A eye deops, and benadryl at bedtime. I also have to use a netti lot to clear the slime from my sinuses.The shower tiles finally crumbled and in July we sent a request explicitly stating the tile needed replaced and there was likely mold. It wasn't until August 2 that they started to address the issue. They had a contracted company come in to replace the tile and the tub. I came home from work (I work night shifts) and saw that there was mold all over the shower area. The men said they had already shown the maintenance supervisor and had already installed the new tub. I had to make a call and send a maintenance request to ask them to do remediation on the bathroom before re installing everything. The next evening I had severe nasal drainage, congestion, safety eyes, a rash on my inner elbows, and fever blisters.They had an additional company come in to do remediation and are still re installing the tub and tiling.

77 unit complex with approx 15 units having hard plumbed

77 unit complex with approx 15 units having hard plumbed washer/dryers. I'm selling my unit and am going to plumb in hookups. The realtor of a prospective buyer asked my property mgt company if this was ok. They basically said no. There is no mention of this in our CC&Rs. I lost that buyer due to my property mgrs response, yet the precedence had been established. What are my rights? Do I have legal rights, can litigation be brought against the association?
