I purchased 20 ac of land 26 years (1990)ago from the VALB in Uvalde, Texas. I'm ready to retire and I just found out that there is a 2381' 30' wide Nonexclusive Roadway easement that was established in Aug.1924 and willed to heirs in 1985.JA: Because real estate law varies from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?Customer: Texas.JA: Has any paperwork been filed?Customer: I requested electrical service from my utility coop and the ranch said he would not allow electrical service to be placed to my property on the road way. This road is CR-103. Referenced in my Deed Description as the county gravel road. It was totally paved from beginning to end in 1993 and maintained by the county every since it was opened for public excess in the late 1950's.JA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: no
Real estate law. North Carolina. I entered an agreement,
Real estate law. North Carolina.I entered an agreement, largely through phone conversations and text messages, no formal contract of any kind, with a man who was going to work on my house in exchange for staying in the house for free. To start off the arrangement, he agreed to bring in a used stove and refrigerator and two window a/c units in exchange for the first two months' stay. He has now been in the house for 7 weeks. Over the course of this time, he has done one thing after another to demonstrate that he is the wrong person for this arrangement. The other day, the toilet pipe was badly clogged (according to him), and I told him that if he would tear out the old drain pipe (40 feet) and replace it with PVC, I would make that equal to a month additional stay. I should add that he brought the stove and refrigerator when he moved in, but not the a/cs which he claimed his mother had lost. So on the pipe issue, he said he did not know how to replace a pipe. That raised a red flag since he had represented himself as someone who could do prettty much all the necessary repairs. I told him how simple it was to cut and replace the pipe, but he insisted on getting a pressure snake to clear the line. I told him that I did not want the line cleared, that it would likely clog again, and that I couldn't credit him with repair work time every time he unclogged the toilet (if it was clogged). Seven weeks in, he has started making trouble with the neighbors on either side, and constantly text messages me questioning the arrangement and threatening to leave with "his" stove and refrigerator. I told him that he had already stayed almost the whole two months and that he did not bring in the a/cs, so I think he is about even on rent. He also begged me to get the electricity turned on in my name because he had no deposit money. I agreed to turn it on, but in text message, I was explicitly clear that I was only turning it on, not paying it for him. Then I found out last week that he moved several friends into my house. I told him I wanted the friends out, and it was another argument. Finally, I'm ready to tell him to hit the road, and he's saying I'll have to evict him, wasting time and money to get him out, and that he'll still take the appliances when he leaves. I'm inclined to call the police to remove him, but I'm concerned they'll side with him and say I had a verbal agreement. I want him out ASAP, and if he does take the appliances, then he essentially stole two months' rent from me. What are my options for fastest/cheapest removal and to keep the appliances/get reimbursed for the renting time?
We are in a complex where every unit has full title. Water
We are in a complex where every unit has full title. Water is supplied to the complex and the usage is metered at the main entrance.The complex then supplies water to the individual owners who gets charged on a pro-rata basis based on the individual metered usage at the end of each month at cost.Are we entitled to discontinue the supply to an owner who does not pay for their usage?
Can we enter a rental unit immediately to repair something
Can we enter a rental unit immediately to repair something the tenant (now under Writ of Restitution) claimed in court is a danger to his daughter? Both HUD rep and city maintenance supervisor (who did other repairs on 9/24/16) said this issue was not in existence at that time; now the tenant says the nails holding frame around the attic entrance are coming out--(we have good reason to believe the tenant is engaging in sabotage to the unit). We want to just go in while he's at work and film the work being done so he can't continue to pull down the frame surrounding the ceiling entry to the attic. We fear if we don't document that the frame was nailed back in he will BEFORE the Sheriff removes him on 10/19, that he will continue to pull it out until he ends up causing the ceiling to collapse and then file suit. It's my understanding that a 24-hour notice is not needed if it's something the tenant complained about and/or it's an "imminent danger" if not taken care of immediately. Thanks!

I have 20 year lease with this solar company called SunPower. Just after about one year, the output of my solar system dropped dramatically. We contacted SunPower over 11 months and the problem is still not solved. In the meantime, I have to pay over $900 to Edison for the electricity bill because of the system failure. Any suggestions?

We recently moved from PA to FL and signed a lease for a property sight unseen. Upon moving into the house, there were MANY things wrong including the A/C unit constantly running, water stains on the ceiling from the A/C running constantly and the windows were screwed shut. We included all of these things wrong and MANY other things on our pre-move in inspection which we had 7 days to complete. The property management immediately sent an A/C serviceman to inspect the unit. He specifically took many pictures and told us the unit was over 11 years old and we were told it was only 2 years old. The management spoke with the service comapny and told us there was nothing wrong is it would be OUR PROBLEM. Our electric bill will be astronomical with this A/C constantly running! Are we able to get out of our 12 year lease or are we subject to this abuse from the management for the next year?
