I own a commercial building in the village of Strasburg

I own a commercial building in the village of Strasburg Ohio. While the building was empty between tenants, they cited a brickwork issue to declare it to be a nuisance and ordered me to tear it down within 30 days. They denied me the option to make any repairs. In fact they ordered my contractor to stop making the repairs. They made use of a village ordinance, which they later conceded was unconstitutional, to do so. I spent a small fortune to purchase my rights of due process which they had denied to me, then after seeing that they might get into trouble, they dropped all the actions against me, thus denying me a trial, which was the only forum I might have in order to let the court know what they had done. The city declared my building a nuisance in order to free up the land for a parking lot for a new business, which had recently erected a new building next door. They declared it a nuisance before they ever inspected it. They refused to let me make any repairs to the building, stating that they intended to demolish it.

Second opinion] I have a first floor condo unit that for

Second opinion] I have a first floor condo unit that for years intermittently every few months gets dirty water up from the sink, in some case getting into the floor and causing significant damage. In the past every time that happen the condo association will clean the ducts but never fixed the cause of the problem. Over the last 1 ½ years I have a new manager that, bot***** *****ne, misunderstood himself from the situation and blaming the problem on my unit. He said all evidence point to that. I send a letter and spoke with the board of the condo association without response. Lately I have been absorbing the cost of cleaning the duct every time gets clogged. I just paid an evaluation where a plumber came with a camera and look inside the ducts and conclusion is that the problem is 100% a building draining system and not my unit.I had lost probably between $5-7 thousand dollars at least on this situation over the last 2 years. Which includes changing hardwood floor, plumber and losing rent, as I could rent unit on time due to damages. I'm really frustrated.First, I need the association to take responsibility for the case because its going to continue happening. Happened twice in the last 10 days. How do I get them to resolve the issue if it belongs to the building. Can I sue them for that?Second, should I sue them to recover part of the money lost.

I live in a beautifully maintained condo community for 55+.

Hi, I live in a beautifully maintained condo community for 55+. When the neighbor above me moved in, the condo board had no requirements for laying wood floors. The owner did not use a licensed contractor and just did it his way. Needless to say, we hear every move they make...but this is not our complaint...about eight weeks ago, the wife decided to continue her power walking exercise program in her condo above our heads about 3-4 times daily causing our lights and TVs to flicker and turn off and on. Sounds carry through our kitchens and when I shout "stop it", they do only to start up a few hours later.JA: Because real estate law varies from place to place, can you tell me what state the association is in?Customer: IllinoisJA: Has any paperwork been filed?Customer: noJA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: Do we have any rights regarding this situation? I spoke to the board about it knowing they really can't do anything. I checked our by-laws and found no protection from bad behavior between neighbors. We plan to have an electrician repair the damage but have no guarantee that we won't have to do it again and again. Are we faced with a losing battle or is there any law that protects us?

We own a condominium on the second floor. The HOA rents out

We own a condominium on the second floor. The HOA rents out some of the units in the complex. The unit directly below us is one of the HOA rentals. The occupants downstairs are smoking in the unit and the smell comes into our home quite strongly. We have addressed this problem to the HOA and the occupants of the downstairs unit. The occupants deny smoking inside, even though when they answered the door, there was a strongly smell of cigarettes inside the unit. The HOA says that they are aware of the problem, yet the problem has not been corrected. I would like to know if I can take legal action for the diminished value of my condo due to the smell, and my trouble.
