I live in Iowa and my county assessor will not remove the

I live in Iowa and my county assessor will not remove the mobile home designation from my home. That means that the buyers that want to buy my home can't get a conventional loan. There is nothing mobile about my home it is all under 1 roof and there is more sq feet that is stick built than was ever part of the mobile home. I have read that each state has a definition of what is considered a mobile home. How would I find what Iowa considers a mobile home and is there a way to legally get the assuror to change the designation?

My electrician installed (and had s workers install) all

My electrician installed (and had his workers install) all wiring and solar for my off the grid new house. One of his workers, whom he fired, miswired several outlets. He now wants to charge me for the repair, which I've refused to do. In addition, he told me I still had $445.00 for fixtures, but this has disappeared apparently.During his installation he delayed and delayed (I think he had many other jobs and was overwhelmed....he's a young man starting a business).......his worker he left a big hole in my soffit when I told this guy that installing the bathroom vent there was against code.Now I was my own contractor, and he's blaming me for all delays, miswired stuff, etc. When one of his men told me he sent a lone worker who was supposed to be supervised, I was alarmed!Ordinarily I'd just not call him anymore. But the solar panels he installed ( $5,500.00 worth) are judged by the manufacturer to be likely damaged. He's says he's sending the bill for the messed up wiring repair to collections. We had no written contract (foolish of me!) and as I'm elderly making repairs myself is dangerous. Please, what can I do?

A property management company purchase my home during a

A property management company purchase my home during a foreclosure sale. I spoke to about retrieving my property from the residence on the 16th of Jun . He told me they had already cleaned the place out and that he had left me a message on my phone for me to come and get my property on the 12th of Jun. I have no such message on my phone. This person never tried to contact me. The person I had staying at the time says they were rushed out and was he told he was going to sell my belongings. I don't think this was the proper procedure. Was it legal for him to sell my property with no notification.

I received a manufactured home in my divorce because my ex

I received a manufactured home in my divorce because my ex wife did not want it, the judge decided I had to refinance it within two years to get her off the deed. I was unable to refinance it because we were in chapter 13 bankruptcy, it is now discharged but I am un able to find someone who will refinance it due to it being a rental (which is currently rented to a section 8 individual) I owe about as much as the home is worth without getting it appraised and I am losing money on it every month, rent versus mortgage payment, plus repairs and taxes and water and sewer bill. My ex wife will not give me a quit claim deed until I refinance it or sell it and if I sell it she gets half of the proceeds from the sale even though I just this year sunk about $10,000 cash into a new roof and A/C. What are my options for this? thanks

We had sold our home 0n May 3, 2016; all went well without a hitch. Within days, found a property, made an offer and was accepted. Using a VA loan the sellers agreed to pay for a retrofit 0f their manufactured home. This did not drag on and with us having to pay for the VA appraisal, pest inspection; also paid by us. Then having to pay for a re-inspection because the previous report reflected PREVIOUS termite/wood rot on a storage shed and a covering protecting the well pump. These two out-buildings had no physical connections to the Main house which passe with flying colors. The re-inspection report reflected that the structures were retreated and yet this underwriter would not approve the re-inspection report and stated that these two out-structures must be "repaired or removed". Knowing how this person thinks, we knew that the "repairs" would never pass (a third inspection), so with the financial help from the sellers, the structures were removed. By this time, the sellers had moved out and a closing date was set for May 27, 2016. Now, the underwriter had to look for something else. The closing date of May 27 had come and gone. Two more closing dates had also passed.Now, there was an issue of the road that ran to the the property: Private vs. County. Regardless, any issue(s) of the road is moot. There was never any disclosure or mention made prior to, during or after the contractual transaction of the road to the property; until NOW! To date June 25, 2016 we still, do not have a closing date. Needless to say, the mental anguish of this ordeal has been unbearable. My wife, of whom I adore, has broken down in tears three times that I know. I am a 20yr. retired, 100% disabled, combat veteran who struggles daily with my Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD). My question for you is: Can my wife and pull out of this without reprisal or lawsuit from the sellers. I have selflessly and without hesitation, proudly served my country with Honor and Distinction without regret and with nothing less than Loyalty towards my comrades and my superiors. That first day of my military life, I took an Oath and Vowed to protect and defend this country and its Constitution. For myself, that oath did not stop when I left military service. I will take this oath to my death.

We had a vinyl laminate flooring product installed

We had a vinyl laminate flooring product installed throughout our condo to replace old carpeting. The installation company did a preliminary check to insure the flooring would work in our unit. They recommended an expensive underlayment to insure it would install correctly. They also did a moisture check and approved the unit for installation. Two months after install the flooring planks started to separate. After one year of different kinds of inspections, Both the manufacturer and install company indicate the problem is moisture, which they state in Wisconsin can change on a daily basis. No one shared this information, when we purchased the flooring. We would have picked another product and would not have made a $6,000 investment We have asked for 1/3 of the purchase price back to cover the flooring with large area rugs. They have denied all claims. Do we have a case?
