Buying a condo in Mililani. Needed to take early Occupancy,

buying a condo in Mililani. Needed to take early Occupancy, signed an EOA. Many things were not disclosed as a conservatorship is selling the property. The repairs added up but due to EOA hard to do anything about it. Now the seller is offering $1,000.00 if I agree to hold them harmless forever in the future. Should I sign and take the money or keep my rights?

We presented the Seller with an amendment following our home

We presented the Seller with an amendment following our home inspection. He did not respond to it so we felt he did not want to make the repairs. We informed our agent we did not want to go forward with the deal. Our agent failed to issue notice to the Seller that we we were terminating the contract. Once the Seller was informed that we wanted to terminate the purchase he told his agent he would agree to the repairs. We still do not want to purchase the home. We have received nothing in writing from the Seller. We have sent a cancellation and mutual release form to the Seller which he says he does not know if he will sign it. What should we do?

Last year (2016) my husband and I were in the market for a

Last year (2016) my husband and I were in the market for a home in King County, Washington, and had looked at several properties. We had decided on a manufactured home in the community known as Leisure Estates in Renton, Washington. It had an enormous amount of room – two master bedrooms, living room, dining room, large kitchen, two large bathrooms, and a few other things that other properties we'd seen didn't have. In September we began the paperwork for the property and paid for the home inspection ($500). The owner agreed to our terms and this was going to be an “all cash” sale. That was great for us since that meant we didn't need to apply for a loan. Our agent turned over the accepted paperwork to the managers of Leisure Estates to complete the deal and we waited for Leisure Estates response. Our agent hoped the sale would go through, but Leisure Estates was on the record for a lot of the area real estate agents of saying, “No!” to a majority of sales. Since the end of the third week of September was coming up, my husband called Leisure Estates for their decision; we had been turned down. We were devastated. Leisure Estates promised they would send a letter with an explanation for their rejection. My husband called them about the promised letter every day for a couple of weeks and ended up leaving messages; the calls were never returned. We felt we couldn't go forward and find another property until we heard from Leisure Estates. However, we did manage to find another property, qualify for a home loan, and buy this second property. I blame Leisure Estates for causing us to take on extra debt which we had tried to avoid. After we bought the second property, we FINALLY received the promised rejection letter from Leisure Estates. I've included their letter as an attachment for your consideration. Leisure Estates was calling us liars, but information they had amounted to being erroneous. They seemed to be alluding to the fact that I had supplied them with it, but no one from Leisure Estates ever contacted me. So I was wondering if we had a case for libel against Leisure Estates?

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?

I purchased a house in July this year and noticed there are rodent activities after we moved in. We found out that the previous owner had knowledge of the rodent activities, but did not disclose to us (I obtained an inspection report from pest control company dated May confirming rodent actitivies, before we signed contract,), no recommended repairs were done. The seller disclosure did not mention rodents specifically, but have clause "other hidden defects have not otherwise been disclosed", do I have a chance to sue them for damage in the small claims court?
