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.

Am I entitled to a date and time of a condo inspection to

Am I entitled to a date and time of a condo inspection to make sure I'm home at the time? I received a letter from the condo attorney that someone will be inspecting my home for a washer and dryer. We are not allowed to have them. I don't have one. I own the condo and called and asked when the inspection is going to be. She didn't know. She said they just want your key otherwise I will be responsible for locksmith costs. All they said was it will be done during reasonable hours. Not tomorrow not next week.I have no problem letting them in. I have to make arrangements to be home during that time from work because I want to be present and I have a pet. There is no emergency or leaks. Just hearsay that I have one because of condo bull.....

Thanks so much help! I am looking to buy property where I

Thanks so much for your help! I am looking to buy property where I will put our cabin, in the country. It is in Crawford County in Wisconsin and County and Township zoning for the property allow for our 3 family pet goats (who are my babies!!). The location for our property is a development with a home owners association and convenants. The convenants currently have no restriction, no mention of animals. Can the home owners association vote to add a restriction against having goats and if I bought the property before this restriction was added, could it be enforced against me or would I be 'grandfathered' in? This is supremely important as I would never desert my goats who are part of the family, my babies completely so we would move and lose a lot of money. THANK YOU again for your help!

The closing was held up days past the date due to the out of

The closing was held up for several days past the date due to the out of the country seller not getting some required forms over. The Buyer has to move on the day that was scheduled since his home Buyer is closing at the same time and moving into the buyers home. Also the Buyer is unable to reschedule his mover. What can be done to let the buyer into the property he is buying without actually turning over possession until the closing is completed? Could the Seller lease the buyer the property for a week - is this a good solution??

My husband and I rented a home from a private person in Va

Hello,My husband and I rented a home from a private person in Va for 2 yrs. At the end of our lease, we spent over $850 on professional cleaning and carpet cleaning. We did a walk through with our landlord. He told us everything was good. He would cut us a check for our $2200 security deposit within 72 hrs. One week later, he emailed us and told us the carpets had pet urine on them. Carpets needed cleaned again. They were to his satisfaction. Almost 45 days later, still no security deposit. Sent a multitude of emails and texts asking for it. Barely a response. On day 34 (after we vacated), we received our security deposit which was $1900 instead of $2200 because of:1. $185 for Professional redo of cleaning the carpets from pet stains (we had already given a $300 no refundable pet deposit upon signing the lease)2. $75 for a repair of a broken screen (which was broken when we moved in and documented as damaged on our move in checklist)3. 3.94 For apparent missing keys to a doorMy question is:1. Aren't we owed the interest that was accrued on our original $2200 security deposit?2. We gave a pet deposit of $300 already that should have covered the cost of the carpet cleaning which they told us cost $1853. We shouldn't be charged for a broken screen for $75 that was already noted on our move in checklist that was damaged from the prior tenantWhat legal action can we take that will get us the remainder of our deposit back plus the accrued interest?

We lease a townhome in Dallas, TX. Our lease ends August 31

We lease a townhome in Dallas, TX. Our lease ends August 31 and we were just informed that the owners wish to sell and will not renew. This gives us time to look for another place, except that my wife and I will be out of the country for 3 weeks.Concurrently, the leasing agent who also acts as seller's agent demands to have immediate access to our place for marketing purposes while we are gone. We have pets, which will be taken care of three times a day by a pet-sitter, and we DO NOT WANT strangers in our home, putting our pets at risk.How can I prevent the landlord from placing a lockbox and having access to our home July 21-August 8?To consider: our lease does grant permission to landlord to install lockbox 30 days before end of lease (30 days before August 31) but we feel that our absence and our pets should be accounted for.
