I reported mold to my landlord on 9/25/16 inside of my

I reported mold to my landlord on 9/25/16 inside of my central ac return air closet. I had this mold professionally tested and the tester confirmed it was black mold and stated in writing my apartment was not safe to live in. The local health inspector cited the property for various health code violations which endangered my life limb, etc. he also cited the property for actual nuisance. The landlord never removed the mold, so i moved out of the apartment 35 days later. The mold sat there for 35 days and it was never removed. Both of my doctors wrote me letters, after looking at the mold reports and photos, these letters stated in their professional options this mold was contributing to my long term upper respiratory illnesses. I also started seeing one of my doctors(one that wrote the letter) for upper respiratory health issues in 2003 after I initially moved into the building in another apartment and started having symptoms after moving in, in this other apartment. The landlord lied to me in writing about the health department coming back to inspect the apartment after I moved out (I can prove this) The landlord also lied to me about the stated repairs they said they had made to the property...they said they replaced molded wood in the property but my before and after photos shows indentations in the same pieces of food and mold coming through the wood.Can I sue my landlord in civil court for breech of contract, negligence, breech of the covenant of fair dealing ...

There is strip of property adjacent to mine that is owned by

Hello - There is strip of property adjacent to mine that is owned by a municipality in PA. The property owner of the adjoining "opposite side" of the strip of land has been known to scatter trash within this strip. I have repeatedly notified the other owner of the trespassing and litter problem to no avail. The municipality has also been contacted several times in the past without action. Therefore I have continuously picked up the trash for approximately 30 years. I would like to fence in my property and include this strip to eliminate the trespassing and litter problem. However I did read that no land can be appropriated from a government agency due to "squatters rights" but is there some way I could erect a fence around the area? I hope this makes sense.JA: Because real estate law varies from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?Customer: PennsylvaniaJA: Has anything been filed or reported?Customer: Only verbally.JA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: Just thank you for your prompt response and consideration.

This subdivision in Monroe co. Georgia sounds like it is the

this subdivision in Monroe co. Georgia sounds like it is the same one I have lived in for 24 yrs.i live on the 1 entrance that comes in off main rd. my uncle owned 5- 2acre lots 3 on the main rd. + 2 behind us on the private rd. he bought them right after they were logged off and made into 2 acre lots in1975 and only put I home for him.then in 1994 he sold me a 2acre lot next to him. no one but 2 people ever lived back there till 2001.thats when a realter/logger bought all the lots he could and stripped them said he was going to fix the road that have 3 entries.he cut all the lots to 1acre lots never fixed the rd. I bought 3- 2 acre lots off my uncle and aunt before they died.i sold 1 to my son across the private from me I kept the 2 acre lot behind him so I have 2 lots 4 acres total on both sides of the private rd. the story was it was a subdivision made and 2 acre lots were bought by people who were from out of the state building local coal power plant,then we had a crooked health inspector that would not pass a perc test so the owners moved home and basicly never came back. the logger found all of them and bought them all, I told him I would be interested in one behind me and wait till he was done he then came on my porch told me for 12000.00 then said that was for 1 acre ! itold him it wasn't worth that and get off my porch before I throw him off. he ended up selling most all 1 acre lots to people putting trailers on them letting them go to hell and losing them then you get people who don't give a damn about the road either.or their kids raceing atv's dirt bikes and any friends from all over tearing it up throwing trash out cars speeding.all there cars have there cars tearing up. that's only the tip of it. ihave seen more crap and called law lots of times they come out and say we can't police this rd. it's a private right off way! they told me if I back out of my driveway +one hits me at 50 mph it would be my fault. if one them happen to hit my 4 yr old +kill him you better send 2 hearses!!my friend that is on another entrance actualy road graded it and would only cost all of them 25.00 no one even pd. but 2 of us and he gave it back +said if you two need anything he would never charge us. I even used his loader and dozer to clear my sons lot. the guy who had the only house +I dumped 4 loads gravel and graded to his house +mine ,I have dumped 4 16 tons on it. I have always kept the entrance in nice shape but stopped because it aint no better down there . even the fed ex +ups will not even go down back.a few yrs. ago we had nice prison guard never bother anyone he died in his new house and the ambulance tried to get down their from the two worst entrances, when they finally went down my entrance it was too late!! the new fire marshall condemned the roods.the road supervisor even was working along with our county commissioner got a petition all singed with her then he retired and she lost the election,good people they came and apoligised. but I am pretty sure this is the same subdivision! thank you very much fore listening!by the way I am 59 total ssd. it's sad when you have to wear ear plugs in your home I also am raising my two grand daughters one is full blown bi-polar and one has schytsoprenia and ADHD and they see a phsychiartist every month and can't even play outside because these idiots think they need an audience. me and my raised 3 of our boys and raised my wifes 3 brothers and no one ever complained at all and theyhad atv's but they have respect for others.across the main rd.there are three neighbors one was even a Monroe co. deputy now retired and she helps, but all of them are even fed up. thanks again. if you have any advice I would really appreciate it. thank you my e-mail is***@******.*** my name is ***** ***** jr. Ga.

We have a house Las Vegas Nevada and we have a neighbor that

Hello, We have a house Las Vegas Nevada and we have a neighbor that has recently built a house behind our rental property. He has recently been complaining about our landscaping. Specifically he is irritated with the overhanging bushes, shrubs and other types of desert landscaping.This Saturday he began cutting back sections of overhanging bushes and then tossing the debris over the 6-foot block wall onto our tenant's property.When he was approached by our tenant and asked not to toss the debris back over the neighbor stopped and said that the next time he needed to trim overhanging landscaping he would toss the debris over again and he would be billing the homeowner for his or his landscaper having to trim the overhanging trees / bushes.I thought I read somewhere that a neighbor has a right to trim back the overhanging trees. bushes, etc. back to the property line as long as he does not cause damage to the trees / bushes.However I thought there was a Nevada Revised Statute– Or Nevada Law that did not allow him to toss the overhanging debris back over the fence into our tenants yard and I thought there was a Nevada Revised Statute that did not allow him to send a bill for the trimming to the homeowner.We do have a landscaping company that does weekly lawn and irrigation work and they do tree and bush trimming every 3 to 4 months when needed. This problem is falling in between quarterly tree / bush trimming.I want to make sure understand how Nevada law reads on this issue.JA: Has any paperwork been filed?Customer: No paperwork, he just started to complain a couple of months ago & this weekend he began trimming himself & throwing the debris into the back yard, telling out tenants that he would bill us for it in the future if we did not keep the tree from over hanging onto his property. We had told him that the landscapers would be trimming in the Spring, as that is when it causes the least damage to the trees.JA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: Not that I can think of right now.
