I am being sued for breech of contract by my former

I am being sued for breech of contract by my former landlord. When I moved out at the end of my lease I took pictures of the house and know what repairs needed to be made. They decided to charge me $1649.50 but have refused to give me a breakdown of what each repair that they made actually cost. I put down a $150 pet damage deposit as well as a $600 deposit. Because they have not given me the breakdown I have not paid the additional $1049.50 that they believe I owe. There are many other issues that occurred while I lived in the home such as no running water during the winters, extremely high heating costs and the home was always cold, being told that my not having water was not as important because there were others without electricity, etc. I guess I need to know if I should try and fight there suit or if I should just pay it and wipe my hands of the situation.

I am curious of my legal standing in disputing a termination

I am curious of my legal standing in disputing a termination of lease, including no penalties, and non-payment of further rent while vacating.8 months into a 12 month lease we had a City of Portland inspector from the Bureau of Developmental Services inspect our apartment for possible code violations. This was prompted by mold on our bathroom ceiling and my inclination was they were in violation. I bathroom has neither a window, nor a vent. Regardless of mold, which was covered in their mold addendum, it creates a hospitable environment for such and no way to properly manage it.The city report also covered some 15 violations, 4 of which were health, safety sanitation violations. Including construction being made without permits. Our apartment was not deemed unlivable but these issues are extremely concerning nonetheless.I have proposed the solution of our 30 days notice commencing on written approval of their agreement to no contractual early termination penalty, full refund of our deposit, and non payment of rent during our process of vacating.I am curious of our legal grounds moving forward, i do not wish to seek damages beyond what i have outlined in our separation agreement. I would like to move forward with finding and securing a new apartment to live in, without making a hasty uninformed decision.

I own a condo in Century Village, Florida, I also own a

I own a condo in Century Village, Florida, I also own a private home in New Jersey. The condo in Florida was originally mom's and transferred to me via a Quit Claim Deed. It became a huge burden, as Medicaid forced me to pay for it for 4 yrs while my mom was on Medicaid. They told me if we foreclosed on it or did not sell it for what they felt it was worth they would drop my mom from Medicaid. The condo is in bad condition and needs costly repairs, it has not been updated since 1972 with electric, plumbing, and more.*** Problem Now: My mom passed away and Medicaid Recovery now put a Lien on the condo. If I stop paying the Taxes, Association fees, Maintenance fees, because my name is ***** ***** on the deed, can they lien my New Jersey home? I heard that the tax dept can only put a Lien on the Florida Condo, is this correct? Can the Association and Maintenance Firm go after me personally and Lien my New Jersey Home or personal bank account.

I am a apartment renter in South Carolina. I am moving out

I am a apartment renter in South Carolina. I am moving out and have submitted my notice. The apartment manager sent me a 4 page document. I will attach if this allows me too. The notice states that I must pay 70.00 for carpet cleaning prior to moving out. It goes further to identify the cost of cleaning every item in the apartment if not turned over in the condition it was received. I was of the understanding that normal wear and tear was not and issue.

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?
