My neighbor's windows are reflecting and intensifying the

My neighbor's windows are reflecting and intensifying the sun's rays onto the side of my house and causing the siding to warp. I know for certain this is the cause because the previous owner's had to replace the siding for the same reason before we took possession of the home in July.JA: Because real estate law varies from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?Customer: New YorkJA: Has any paperwork been filed?Customer: No, I replaced the siding on December 7th and in less than one month it has warped again. The builder of all the homes in our neighborhood used cheaper single hung windows so a screen cannot go on the upper portion of the window, which would put this to bed.JA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: No, I would just like to know who is liable, if anyone.

My daughter and her husband have bought a new $90,000 mobile

My daughter and her husband have bought a new $90,000 mobile home and it is not what the owner of the company said. When you flush the toilet in the master bath, it came up into the bathtub. Light fixtures are not up, the back splash in the kitchen is crooked, when they washed clothes the first time the water didn't flow out, it flooded the utility room, ruining the flooring. The warranty man has been out numerous times but many problems still exist.The plumbers have been out 15 times! They moved into the trailer 11/4/16 and have made 1 payment. What can they do?JA: Because real estate law varies from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?Customer: MississippiJA: Has any paperwork been filed?Customer: No, they are young and don't know what to do or where to startJA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: the owner has not been very cooperative, at this point I think they just want out.

My overflow valve in my bathtub leaks through the ceiling of

My overflow valve in my bathtub leaks through the ceiling of the basement below. My landlord had a plumber come over and the plumber stated that this was "normal" for such valves. The landlord now says any damage that arises from leaks from the overflow valve are my wife's and my responsibility. Is it true that a overflow valve leak is normal and complies with plumbing code? Thank you!

My situation is the following: I purchased my home a year

My situation is the following: I purchased my home a year ago. I had a new roof with gutters, impact doors and windows installed shortly after.JA: Because real estate law varies from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?Customer: My home is in Florida. My situsation has many moving parts and so I will unpack it layer by layer so-to-speak. About a year or so after the roof was installed, strange noises started coming from the attic. As time progressed, the noises became louder, more frequent and began to spread throughout the entire house. I went outside to visually observe the roof from ground level. All the asphalt shingles appeared to be fine and there were no leaks coming from the ceiling. On a rainy day, I decided to check how the water was behaving as it traveled through the gutters and downspouts. I noticed as it exited a total of 3 out of 5 downspouts, water was spilling to the rear of the downspout at the bottom near the wall and foundation because there wasn't sufficient pitch in the connecting elbow at the bottom of the downspout to draw the water away via gravitation from the foundation. I now have visible signs of cracks throughout ceilings, walls, and door frames. I also have slopping floors and low spots on floors.JA: OK. To minimize me, please click the down arrow at the top right corner of this box.Customer: I recently had a foundation repair company visit my house for an inspection. They found my floors are uneven in several areas. They have provided me a quote for repairs to foundation. I contacted the company that sold the roof and gutters to file a claim for damages to property. An adjuster for their company sent me questions to answer regarding my claim. I have not answered yet. I want to know how to go about this prudently. If a state licensed structural engineer reports my home condemned due to unsafe conditions of building, what happens with my insurance? My policy does cover replacement. How does the mortgage company fit into the equation? Who pays for a temporary place to stay while my home is demolished, rebuilt or repaired? Is the company who installed the gutters liable for damages to property due to faulty installation?JA: Has anything been filed or reported?Customer: I have an appointed adjuster from the company that sold me the roof asking questions, but I have not answered anything as of yet.JA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: Nothing else comes to mind. Thanks for asking and thanks for your patience.
