I rented 1 acre of land to a cannabis farmer with a

I rented 1 acre of land to a cannabis farmer with a notorized lease. They are to have paid $5,000 down & $2,000 a month. On signing they only had $1500 and have not paid another dime. They have 48 plants on that 1 acre, we suppose they will harvest and leave. Do I have any recourse? Thank youJA: Because laws vary from place to place, can you tell me what state the property is in?Customer: OregonJA: Have you talked to a lawyer yet?Customer: NoJA: Anything else you think the lawyer should know?Customer: We live on 34 acres & the 1 acre is on that property. Our fence has been cut twice, probably someone stealing from the next door farm. The grower is supposedly from Spokane & was moving down here to the farm next door.

I had given a deposit to a landlord lease of an apartment.

Hello,I had given a deposit to a landlord for the lease of an apartment. We signed a lease agreement and established a move-in date. A deposit of one month's rent was given.The Landlord sent me a note a week later and indicated that they will be selling the place and further indicated that my deposit will be returned promptly. After two weeks of follow up and no check, the Landlord indicated that she would re-send the check via certified mail and also subtract $100 from the total amount ($50 for cancelling the check, and $50 for re-sending (the nerve!). After one week, no check. Now I cannot get a return call from her. Given that the deposit was for $2,650, is this considered grand larceny? Is this best-handled in small claims court? Is this a felony?

I own a condo in Avon, OH. My by-laws state that it can only

I own a condo in Avon, OH. My by-laws state that it can only be rented/leased to family. I bought the condo as a divorced person, but remarried 2 years ago. I leased the condo to my husband's niece. The HOA questioned whom I leased to and said that since she is my husband's niece, she is not my family but they will allow her to reside in the unit under a hardship clause for 24 months. Now they are saying that I am responsible for their attorney's fees to the tune of $427.00. Is this enforcible or even legal? Can they put a lien on my property? They have never even sent me a letter and I am not sure why the board felt the need to get an attorney involved to begin with. It is not like I intentionally broke a by-law.

I recently submitted an application to lease an apartment.

I recently submitted an application to lease an apartment. Prior to applying I informed her that I was currently unemployed and the only income I have is my child support and alimony payments( which were not sufficient to qualify me for the lease) I told her I could use a cosigner if she allowed it, she agreed. I received an email from the owner with a fee list, application fee was $130 in total, $50 for me, $50 for my 19 year old daughter, and $30 for my cosigner. My daughters and my information were included on one application, which I gave to the owner. She told me she would need my cosigners application by days end to proceed with the process and she would call me if she didn't receive anything. The owner call me after 6pm and stated that she hadn't received the application. My cosigner called the owner the following day because she had a few questions and told the her she would send the completed application after she speaks to me. After speaking to me I told her we weren't going to move forward with the application because I didn't feel comfortable with the monthly rent and the lease terms. The owner had already stated that she couldn't move forward with the application without a cosigner because she couldnt qualify me alone because of my lack of income. I reached out to the owner and explained to her my reason for not sending my cosigners application and that I was no longer interested in the apartment. I asked for the application fee to be returned because she never received a complete application to submit on my behalf. She stated she does not owe me anything because she processed the information on myself and daughter. I know she didn't process anything because she never gave me the results of her findings or mentioned anything about processing our portion alone. She stated that she would try to get the $30 back for my cosigners application but she couldn't promise anything. Is she allowed to keep my application fee if she submitted my partial application knowing I couldn't be approved alone and the fact that she told me she couldn't move forward without my cosigners information. Wouldn't the burden of any fees incurred fall on the owner if she submitted an incomplete application on my behalf?

I am an LPR trying to join the US Army as a linguist as I have no family in the US and my remaining family in Spain would be better taken care of I were deployed as a linguist on a US base in eastern Europe. Army has consistently told me I can get an age waiver based on knowledge of languages of interest to US military (Polish and Russian in my case, in addition to German, French and Spanish). But it appears serving US Army in one of new battalions in Poland or Baltic Republics or Romania does not fulfil the requirement of being on US territory for an LPR. Is this correct?JA: Since laws vary from place to place, what state is this in?Customer: I reside in MarylandJA: Have you talked to a lawyer yet?Customer: not on the military angleJA: Anything else you think the lawyer should know?Customer: I have been a LPR since May of 2015
