Do I have any options like be evicted to buy time.I'm 62

Do I have any options like be evicted to buy time.I'm 62 yrs. old and retired from the State of Ohio. I've been a tenant at 656 N. High St. Apt. 3c for 20 yrs.I received a letter from the property owner stating my 30 day lease was up at the end of Sept. Before my letter, my neighbor had just moved out. He said his lease was up and he wasn't renewing. He wanted to go month-to-month for a few months but they said no. So I just assumed that's what they were telling me too, in the letter. I thought I would just have to go in and sign a new years lease. I had been going month-to-month for the last 19 yrs. I pay my rent on time, I've tried to always let the property owner know when I thought there was a problem on his property.1). The bicycles attached to the stairway which people could trip and fall. He would have had quite a lawsuit there.2). The lady driving in, doing her laundry, and driving out.3). And laundry being stolen from the laundry room, mine specifically!!! I thought maybe he could alert the other tenants via email. But I or anyone else ever heard anymore about it.Most landlords would appreciate their tenants taking interest in their property... I would think. Anyway, the letter said to contact His attorney w/any questions. I did that the next week but he was out of the office for the next several weeks so I left a message.I called the property owner the next Saturday because I hadn't heard anything back yet. He said he couldn't talk about this and I would have to contact His attorney. This worried me because I've always been able to call him about anything.After about 3weeks I went back to the Attorneys office, he wasn't in but he did call me back this time. I had to be out of the apt. I just couldn't believe it.I never thought at 62 I would be moving again. My life plan was to stay another 10 yrs. and then move back to Ky. My family are all buried there.I just can't understand why their doing this to me.The bot***** *****ne for me is, I just can't be out of here in this short time. I'm exhausted. I have spent the last couple weeks looking but can't find anything in my location and price range. I was not financially set up to move.I would now like to stay till spring if I could so I have time to make some life decisions... Or till the end of the year or a month....whatever.These are good people. I just can't figure out why they are

Hello, I have been living the last nine years in Missoula MT. I recently discovered from a neighbor, the HOA had raised the dues to $75. monthly . Since for the past 9 years I've been paying $100. monthly I sent a letter asking about this and what the dues were prior since I feel they owe me past dues . Now they threaten to put a lien on my property. Do I have any legal recourse?

I have hardwood floors above me which are very loud. I was

I have hardwood floors above me which are very loud. I was woken up for a week straight and it made me quite angry. I had an incident where the person above me could hear me swearing. After management told me my neighbor could hear me I immediately stopped. Since then they have been looking for an excuse to evict me from my apartment. They have been sending me letters like loitering in the common areas and disturbing other residents. They just keep tacking on warnings and in the last letter they have written final warning even though I've done nothing wrong since the initial incident. What can I do, if anything, to combat this. I would really like to see the community manager get replaced. She has had a grudge against me since the initial incident.

We just bought a house and have the plats for the location

We just bought a house and have the plats for the location where the house is. I We could have had a survey before or after we bought the house. Since having a survey is expensive I decided to see if one of my neighbors surveyed. Where we live their are rods in the ground we found that lets me know where the boundary is on the lot. Bad news: Our sun room was built on the other lot. The owner was a realter. He sold the house to two other people and did not know this when he had the house built? I don' t think anyone checked. Shouldn't they have revealed this to me? What do I do?
