I have lived in a condo years. My neighbor has serious
I have lived in a condo for 10 years. My neighbor has serious mental issues and his unit is foul smelling sewer stink. He leaves trash all over the place and feeds the wildlife. So now the building has mice. Me and the other owners have complained for years. Nothing is ever done. The association says they send him letters. That's it. We are all sick of it. Is there anything I can do?

My neighbors have an RV parked on their property. The development has covenants against parking these vehicles anywhere on one's property or in the development. All neighbors want this removed. It is unsightly and also a danger that hampers vision. The Township will not enforce. How can we go about getting this enforced???
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?
How often can an apartment complex water their grass in
How often can an apartment complex water their grass in Aurora CO? Don't they have to follow the same city ordinance as everyone else? Or because they they both even and odds they can water everyday?Complaints about smoking marijuana tothe apartment complex and nothing being done. Since it is legal in Colorado, but the lease states that it cannot be smoked in the complex do tenants have to follow? I have complained several times in regards ***** ***** smell and even spoke to the complex officer, yet nothing has been done.
When entering into a rental agreement, does the management
When entering into a rental agreement, does the management company have to disclose to the renter major upcoming repairs, such as paving your parking area and stripping and painting the exterior of your condo complex, if this is going to occur during your rental agreement period? Contact with owner of property, was he knew about upcoming maintance, but did not consider it important to notify us or the management company.Are we expected to honor the remainder of our rental agreement, approx three months, as long as we make a thirty day move out notice and have condo professionally cleaned as agreed upon.Thanks for reading thisGaryState of Hawaii

I reside in a 4-unit condominium, all owner occupied, inView more real estate law questions
I reside in a 4-unit condominium, all owner occupied, in Massachusetts. We are a self-managed property and three years a go a new resident purchased one of the units; this owner's Master Deed is both in their name and his mother's; his mother does not live on the premises.Since this individual has moved into the Association there have been significant violations of bylaws as well as safety concerns that have involved the police: spray painting the exterior of his door with red spray paint, stating obscenities; screaming for hours on end at night while also causing physical destruction w/i his own unit; threatening to murder people; leaving pools of his own blood in common area; taking a baseball bat to the fire alarm; and a series of other disconcerting behaviors.We, and our neighbors, routinely call the police and they have taken him into custody on some occasions and not others. In some cases, unfortunately, association members have not called the police out of fear of escalating the situation (fears include that this individual could hurt himself, others or cause damage to our property). We have attempted to engage the parent, who is also on the deed, who only assures us that this individual is harmless.While we are not certain that this individual is mentally ill, we assume that the presenting behaviors are indicative of such, so we are at a loss as to how to protect ourselves and our property while also being mindful of the law.What can we legally do?
