I have an offer on my house from a realtor. I don't yet have

I have an offer on my house from a realtor. I don't yet have a listing agent. The offer has a Commision Agreement (CAR) and a Purchase Agreement. The agent says that the CAR is just for this purchase. However, there is no language in the CAR that indicates a timeline or that it is tied to the Purchase Agreement timeline.Also, i have heard that there must be a listing agreement to close escrow. Is that true?My concern: I don't want to work further with this realtor if this deal doesn't go thru. I am concerned he will introduce a 3 month listing agreement once i have signed the Purchase agreement.

Hi, I am a new homeowner of a condo in CA. My neighbor plays

Hi,I am a new homeowner of a condo in CA. My neighbor plays loud acoustic guitar. When we approached him in person and via email to bring the noise down, he emailed back in a threatening and abusive manner. We then contacted our HOA management (and he is a board member of HOA, while I'm not) HOA wants me to provide a copy of my work schedule so that he can play when I'm not at home! I work variable hours and I don't feel comfortable sharing my work schedule especially in the context of the abusive emails. And what if I call in sick or have a change in work schedule? How should I approach this as my HOA does not seem helpful?

I own a piece of property here in Tn that is bordered by a commerical/industrial property. There is a fence separating these two properties, the fence has been there prior to my purchasing my property and as well as the other property owner purchasing his property. Per the other property owner, the fence is not on the actual property line of the two properties (there is an fire hydrant, a concrete pad for a garbage dumpster and a newly installed waste water cleanout grate on my side of the fence). The owner of the commercial/industrial property now wants to move the fence to what he says is his property line. Can he do this and take my access to the fire hydrant the concert pad for a small garbage dumpster along with access to my new waste water cleanout grate?
