I'm in the process of buying a condo. We hit a bump in the

Hi, I'm in the process of buying a condo. We hit a bump in the road - namely, that the original owner has tenants in the condo that they said would be given 30 days notice once I received my clear to close. After I got my clear to close, they contacted my realtor and asked if I would be willing to have the tenants live there a little longer if they paid me rent since they hadnt found a new place yet. I said no, and they responded that, well, shucks, the tenants aren't leaving. Assuming that they were squatting, we were hopeful that the issue would be solved within a few weeks, with the owners offering the tenants money to leave. As the date grew close, we were told that it wasn't the tenants fault at all - the tenants had a lease that went until april that we were not informed about, and had no plans on leaving until then. We should have closed in early December, but now we can't until April. That ruined a lot of my plans for the year. They agreed to take $9,000 off the purchase price since they were in breach of contract, and they came to us with some paperwork specifying the conditions. We returned the paperwork with a few addendums - mainly, that if we were unable to close in April, that I would retain the right to pursue any legal means to be reimbursed for my damages. They just sent back an addendum to that addendum that seems to limit my legal options, and I'd like to get an opinion of whether or not I should go forward with their addendum.JA: Because laws vary from place to place, can you tell me what state the property is in?Customer: MichiganJA: Has anything been filed or reported?Customer: Legally? No, just a few contract addendums back and forth between us and the seller.JA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: I'd like to be able to attach the addendums

I am a real estate investor, in the Los Angeles area, who contracted with a licensed contractor do perform approximately $260,000 of construction work. I was informed by a subcontractor that the general contractor lost his license, and the subcontractor stop working delaying the project. I am dissatisfied with the performance of the contractor and told him that I wanted to terminate my contract with him, due to his license no longer being active. I sent a termination letter to contractor. Has changed his mind about accepting the termination. Initially saying he felt we still had a valid contract, but later accepted the termination, and now is saying he will pursue early termination liquidated damages if we try to terminate contract. If I were to seek legal representation, will a lawyer review my case and determine the viability of success, and take the case on contingency if they feel it is a good case?JA: Because real estate law varies from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?Customer: I thought by stating it was in Los Angeles, that you'd know it was in California?JA: Has anything been filed or reported?Customer: I have presented the termination letter, and stated that if he and I could come to an agreement on how money would be distributed to end the contract that I would file, but I have not filed anything yet.JA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: The contract includes a clause stated mitigation would be pursued prior to going to court.

I have an Order of Protection against my older brother,

I have an Order of Protection against my older brother, which prohibits my brother from: aggravated harassment, harassment in the first or second degree and coercion in the second degree. I believe that he has violated my OP against him multiple times by:(a) sending me abusive txts while I was recovering from surgery to repair a torn rotator cuff and in while residing in an SRO in NYC; this caused me to have nervous breaking shortly after the harassment started and be rushed to a local ER at least ten times in the period of two months. It also gave rise to a neurological problem that presented itself as my right hand being cramped into a tight, very painful and highly disturbing.fist snd prevented me from obtaining any employment. My neurologists and I have determined that is was a neurological reaction to the stress induced by his abuse. This is well documented by my physicians and therapists.In these txts and emails, he repeatedly told me that I was mentally ill and had a substance abuse problem and should go into rehab, neither of which is true. In addition, a good friend committed suicide during this period of the abusive txts an emails.He has also told all of living relatives that I am mentally ill, which has caused all of them to sever contact with me.Before he was served with my OP against him, he induced my 85-year-old mother to take out a stay-away order against. After she passed away, he informed the police that I had violated her OP against me, and they went to one of my former residences to question me. I received a phone call from the police telling me that they were looking for me. This caused my stress levels to skyrocket, and I lived in constant fear and could not sleep do to the anxiety his actions produced. The Legal Aid Society informed the police that I was not to be questioned since my mother had passed away five months before. I am presently working on getting a FOIL report from Police HQ to verify that fact.Furthermore, he stole a number of computer components from me. Since they were stolen, I cannot prove that he stole them. He WAS however staying at my mother's apartment at the time of the disappearance of my property.Lastly, he threatened me with regard to his carrying out the liquidation of my mother's estate by saying: "If you in any way seek to hinder my duties as executor of my mother's estate, it will cost you money. This is not a threat -- it's a FACT!"Lastly, he accused me of committing credit card fraud with my mother's CC without her consent, which is not true. He is trying to subtract the amount he claims that I stole from my distribution.The last time I saw my brother in private around 10 years ago, he tried to strangle me.My brother has well documented alcohol and substance abuse problems, as well was charged with a felony a couple of years ago involving weapons and illegal narcotics. He also has a history of violent behavior toward me.Do all of these actions equal multiple violations of my OP against my brother?
