I live in Texas and have heir property that is not divided.

I live in Texas and have heir property that is not divided. My Mom allowed my brother who is deceased to move in a mobile home but did not give him the land on which it sits. His adopted daughter is now in the home but has not paid taxes for 2014/2015. What can I do? There is also a water well that supplies water for four homes, except hers on the land. The water was shut-off recently for non payment and my neice i'm told paid to have the services reconnected and changed the name on the account from my mother's to hers. My mother worked hard over the years to keep the water rights to her property and I don't feel she should come in a try to take control without consulting our family. What are my rights?JA: Because real estate law varies from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?Customer: TexasJA: Has any paperwork been filed?Customer: paperwork filed for what?JA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: Yes. How can I get taxes from family who owe for 2014/2015 and how can I get name changed back for water well?

09/18/16 I woke to find I had no hot water, called the maintenance guy. When he arrived we both discovered there was a leak under the mobile home I occupy. This leak had been going on for a while due to the mushrooms growing in a corner of a room a use for storage and the two rotted out floors we discovered. The leak was the result of a previous repair not being done correctly. Due to this leak the water was turned off making the house unlivable. First the landlord offered to put me and my two dogs into a hotel but the hotel he offered did not allow dogs. When I found a hotel he denied paying for my room because it was more than he wanted to pay. He then offered to put me into an empty mobile home (smaller than my current unit) while the repairs occurred. I denied this because I did not feel comfortable having his men move my belongings. If he would have agreed to have movers move my furniture and put me in a mobile home the same size as mine I would have taken him up on his offer. I instead, paid for a hotel room for 3 nights out of my own pocket. I also contacted my renters insurance to see if they would cover the costs. Due to the problems being something that could have been prevented, my renters insurance would not cover expenses. I would like to know if I can deduct the hotel expenses from my rent without retaliation? I had to miss 2 days of work because of this issue and my house is still not completely repaired. I have water, but one of my bathrooms is not fully functional and I have a bedroom that is still out of use. I need to know what I can and can not do legally before preceding.

My niece has been paying the monthly payments on a mobile

My niece has been paying the monthly payments on a mobile home owned by her brother. Her brother filed bankruptcy and asked to keep the mobile home for his sister to continue to live in and to continue making the monthly payments but the bankruptcy did not accept that. Am I correct that my niece cannot be evicted without the financing company go through normal legal processes to evict her? Am I correct that she does not have to move out just because her brother tells her that the mobile home is going back to the finance company?

My daughter co-owns and lives in a mobile home that her dad

My daughter co-owns and lives in a mobile home that her dad bought in Colorado. It unfortunately has turned out to be a wreck. The reason her dad put her on the title is because the park would not allow for rentals but she could make payments to her dad and live there until she paid him off in full. She has no money to fix up the more serious issues and her ceiling is caving in and very moldy. She has requested help from her father getting it fixed and he is ignoring her. Is there anything she can do to propel him to help and if she cannot can she vacate the property when she has money to get another place without any legal consequences if the place should be condemned? Thank you

F.S. 633.0215 - Florida Prevention Code states as follows:

F.S.(###) ###-####- Florida Prevention Code states as follows:The State Fire Marshall shall adopt by rule pursuant to ss 120.536(1) and 120.54, the Fire Prevention Code which shall contain and incorporate by reference all firesafety laws and rules that pertain to and govern the design, construction, erection, alteration, modification, repair and demolition of public and private buildings, structures, and facilites and the enforcement of such firesafery laws and rules.Florida Fire Prevention Code under F.S 633.022 states as follows:—The Legislature hereby determines that to protect the public health, safety, and welfare it is necessary to provide for firesafety standards governing the construction and utilization of certain buildings and structures. The Legislature further determines that certain buildings or structures, due to their specialized use or to the special characteristics of the person utilizing or occupying these buildings or structures, should be subject to firesafety standards reflecting these special needs as may be appropriate.(1) The department shall establish uniform firesafety standards that apply to:(a) All new, existing, and proposed state-owned and state-leased buildings.(b) All new, existing, and proposed hospitals, nursing homes, assisted living facilities, adult family-care homes, correctional facilities, public schools, transient public lodging establishments, public food service establishments, elevators, migrant labor camps, mobile home parks, lodging parks, recreational vehicle parks, recreational camps, residential and nonresidential child care facilities, facilities for the developmentally disabled, motion picture and television special effects productions, tunnels, and self-service gasoline stations, of which standards the State Fire Marshal is the final administrative interpreting authority.Issues:F.S.(###) ###-####speaks in general of "public and private buildings". It defines those kinds of buildings as the appropriate category for application in a number of ways that clearly exclude "existing structures" unless said structure are in the process of some "alteration, modification or repair".But F.S.633.022 limits the application of the "uniform firesafety standards to only some categories of public and private buildings. Moreover, the mandatory standards are specifically mentioned and intended to apply to both new and existing but only to very specific public and private buildings.Thus the clear and convincing interpretation (to me anyway) of the law is as follows:1. No existing "private building" not in the process "alteration, repair or modification" is subject to the law under any circumstances.2. The precise articulation of the term "existing buildings" in FS 633.022, distinguishes existing buildings from the other categories defined in(###) ###-#### It is not therefore a matter of a "scrivener's error" or subject to any other interpretive intent but that which I have given it.Questions:1. Absent any other conflicting statute, is my interpretation shown in Issue # 1 above correct?2. In the light of the very specific listing in 633.022 of which "existing buildings" are covered, is it not very clear that private buildings not in the process of "alteration, medication and improvement" are absolutely not included?
