I have a renter that reports me to the city before making me

I have a renter that reports me to the city before making me aware that she has a problem. We have been dealing with water problems & are addressing them quickly. We have not replaced a carpet in a back area as we need another rain to make certain we have fixed the problem. I sent an A.C. guy over this week. He says the a.c. is cooling but has a small leak that he fixed that is not uncommon. She told him she knows it is toxic & expects a new a. c. She is 3 months into a 2 yr lease. She finds everything wrong with the Hs. I need to know if I can get hr out soon & how ?? Please help.....we have other rentals & never problems like this.

I have owned a building since Feb 2016. It's a four family

I have owned a building since Feb 2016. It's a four family apt building. 3 of the tenants are good. One woman who has been there for about 2.5 years has mental issues. She is harassing the other tenants and their visitors. Yelling profanities, banging on their doors, threatening them and their pets. Her son has admitted she is 'off her meds' and is trying to deal with it, but he is young and seems unsure of what to do. The police have been called a few times, but she won't answer the door and they say they are limited on what to do. She is clearly digressing. At this point, my good tenants want to move, so I want to evict her.

The local property inspector in Ewing township N J is

the local property inspector in Ewing township N J is demanding that I come to his office to learn what he calls the steps necessary for an inspection of my property. the property is well maintained and has been kept up to date with inspections. However, we put a second tenant in without first having the apartment inspected again. The last inspection took place one year ago. To complicate matters, the downstairs Tenent plays cards with the inspector and constantly calls him to complain about me. She is a royal pain who pays late and makes constant demands.Her lease is to be renewed in August. She hasn't signed it yet. Can I send her another notice telling her that we don't now want to renew her lease? She has caused nothing But trouble. She has use of the backyard and refuses to share it with the upstairs Tenent. She constantly complains about noise and disturbs the upstairs Tenent. What can I do to get rid of her??

Do I have any rights to request an inspection be done to

Do I have any rights to request an inspection be done to make sure the flooring in the unit above me is in compliance with HOA?The unit owners above me installed hardwood floors. After fighting with HOA for years about the level of noise and that they were not allowed to have hardwood floors, they put carpet down. (The tenant living there confirmed there was no padding)(I'm suspecting they put the carpet over the hardwood floors.)Recently the tenant living in the unit said the owner added padding.However, it's made very little to no difference in the level of noise. I can still hear everything.It's not the same as it once was prior to him installing the floors.Do you have any suggestions to how I should handle this matter?

My wife and i own a seven unit compound where we live in

my wife and i own a seven unit compound where we live in Venice CA. Everybody enjoys the sweet vibration here. Unfortunately one of our tenants is becoming more and more aggressive and paranoid. For example she accused one resident of stealing her mail and illegal entry into her apartment, theft of suitcases, vandalism of her auto (all with no proof)

I live directly behind a grocery store. There dumpster

I live directly behind a grocery store. There dumpster smells bad and the smell flows into my yard making it unbearable to spend time there. I am also thinking about selling my house but I am afraid the smell from the store will prevent me from being able to sell. This has been going on for years and I am tired of this. Can I sue the store?

I live in Dallas Oregon. We bought 70 acres about a year and

I live in Dallas Oregon. We bought 70 acres about a year and a half ago. The north property line is about a quarter mile long, with only half being fenced.We were contracting with the north neighbor to build an out door horse arena in the southeast corner of our property.The people we bought the property from were there over 20 years. Now this north neighbor has brought a cat onto our property, trespassing and destroying trees and other plants, as well as destroying a portion of the existing fence saying that his property extends past the fence. The plot map we were given upon purchasing clearly shows he has trespassed. He has bladed out property on three different occasions.What are my options?Thankz, Geff
