I was renting a house in New Jersey with a one-year lease. I

I was renting a house in New Jersey with a one-year lease. I had to break the lease 6 months into it to move home to Texas. I understand that I am responsible for "damages," including the cost of the landlord to find a new tenant. When I signed my lease, the cost to the landlord was one month's rent, split by the landlord's agent and mine.However, the new tenant has signed a 2-year lease. Consequently, the landlord wants to charge me damages of TWO months rent. That does not seem appropriate to me. If he had found a tenant to rent for 5 years would I be liable for five year's rent??The lease is $2,300 monthly rent. I understand that I am liable for damages of $2,300. But he is saying the damages are $4,600 and that does not seem fair to me.Please advise.

My brother passed over 3 years ago and left me s house but

My brother passed over 3 years ago and left me his house but it is 100 miles away from my wife's work so we have been renting it out the whole time but we are getting tired of the renters game so we decided to sell the house. When I sell the house how much taxes will I have to pay ? I have heard we would have to live in it for 2 years so we would not have to pay taxes and we also heard if my brother bought the house for $80,000.00 and we sell the house for a $100,000.00 we would have to pay taxes on that and we also heard if we sold the house for 100,000.00 we would have 2 months to find another house and put the whole amount toward the new house. We can not find a direct answer to this question. Don't get me wrong I am glad he left us his house and we planned on moving into the house but it has not worked out, I am just trying to do the smart thing so I don't end up owing like 40k to the government - please help- thank you very much

I had a reservation at a hotel nights and when I got there

I had a reservation at a hotel for three nights and when I got there the clerk checked me in and told me my room was 310. I asked where the elevator was. She said they didn't have one. I asked for assistance with my luggage. She said she would bump someone from the first floor and put me in a room on the first floor. The first floor was down about five steps do it was also non ADA compliant. She also told me that she wouldn't be able to give me a first floor room for nights two and three. Then my battle began.I think I have a case. What do you think.I booked the room through a rewards program and just wanted to get my points back. Tried on the phone for over an hour today. Not satisfied with the result.

Recently our town decided to not support our local ball field, city clerk held a meeting at ball field told us we need to form a board and city would lease us the field so we did. But in the past the city keep all our money form concession stand and fund raising if we need something we have to go through hoops to get it so we opened our own account in our clubs name and our kids play for a league with a tax free exempt so the lets us use that number.we started fond raisers and boys earned $2000.00 for their needs. Now the city has decided to continue supporting the ball players so our board will have to break up,the city says all the money we received needs to go to the city for our account.what we need to know is can spend it on ball supplies we need or do we have to turn it in? Thanks we are in Iowa.
