Good Evening,I own 6 acres of land in the woods (this is in a HOA) the land is in front on a little lake. The easement is in my property and is for a right of way to the other neighbors to access the lake. The deed says I am the owner. The Association says they own it and want to clear the easement of trees etc and want to built a dock. I pay taxes on the land where the easement is and the survey shows that the easement is within the boundaries of my property. Can the Association do what they want and are they co-owners of the easement? This is in Michigan in Gladwin County

Our private right-of-way road easement runs through a

Our private right-of-way road easement runs through a neighbors land. Although there is no problem driving on the road, the neighbor chases road maintenance crews away either via intimidation or downright threats. He keeps 2 horses on his property and thinks maintenance will bother them. He claims it is his property and they are trespassing. The rest of the neighbors willingly pay for all maintenance. The road has been there for many year. The horses only 5 or 6 years.

I bought 4 rental properties some years ago and it was

i bought 4 rental properties some years ago and it was strictly an interest only loan. rents and cost of repairs and maintenance were insufficient to fully pay interest on loan monthly. For the last 2 and half years, I asked the mortgage servicer to take them back but they simply turned around and sold the note off time and time again. A couple of months ago, they went to court to ask for foreclosure and all accrued interest on the loans and other fees and charges which were in the $200,000 range for each of the houses. I did not receive a letter to come to court on that date and the judge granted them all that was requested.It is totally impossible to repay them and I cannot afford to even pay a lawyer and I am looking for a pro bono lawyer that can represent me. Please let me know what to do, thanks.

I live in a retirement community. One year ago the HOA

I live in a retirement community. One year ago the HOA decided to put a Landscape Maintenance building and yard next to my home. It has become a nuisance with trucks and cars coming and going all day. The front gates are always open giving the impression that it is their neighborhood. But, it is a neighborhood of houses now with this nuisance and hazard in the midst. Is there anything that could be done, assuming the HOA acted within the limits of the developments rules and regulations, to attempt to have this relocated?Don

I have a tenant that uses a drive to enter the rented home.

I have a tenant that uses a drive to enter the rented home. It is a private road that runs from the county road on my property to access my homestead, my shop building, and provides access two my rental properties. I have a posted speed limit of 5 miles per hour. I signed a one year lease with a the tenant. At the time of the application and two seperate viewings the potential tenant was informed that i am very strict about the speed limit. Upon acceptance/signature of the contact and payment of deposit-i again stressed that the speed limit is strict. especially due to the fact that i have animals and other tenants with children and for respect and safety for all tenants and animals-the tenant and other occupants assured that they understood and having a child of their own appreciated the caution and agreed to follow the posted speed limit. less than one month into the contract i encountered the tenant driving past my house and another tenants residence at 15 to twenty miles per hour! I admit i handled the issue inappropiately as i called him and said "I am Dead f**king Serious about the speed limit. You almost ran over my wiener dog! You run over my dog and you will be out" he stated that he was unaware he was speeding. I asked "did you even see my dog?" he answered no. I then told him that "i dont care if you are on the way to the f**king hospital...you need to be cautious and away of the speedlimit and surroundings. drive 5 mph all the way from entry to end all day every day" now the tenenat has sent me notice to terminate the contract on the grounds that i threatened him and that he is no longer able to exercise his right of "quiet use and enjoyment of the leased premises" is this incident cause to legally terminate the contract? im fine with him moving on but expect him to pay rent unil i find another tenant. also am i obligated to refund his deposit?
