Can you research and tell me what year building permits were

Can you research and tell me what year building permits were required in Eagar, AZ?JA: Has any paperwork been filed?Customer: Not to my knowledge.JA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: There is a house in AZ that has a list of things that need to be fixed before it can be occupied. One of the things is tearing out all the drywall to see if there is asbestos. The house was built in 1978. The current owner bought the house in 1981 or 1982. Asbestos was discontinued to be best of my knowledge in 1977. Would like legal verification on these questions.JA: Because real estate law varies from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?Customer: Eagar, Arizona

To whom it may concern, Our office has had plumbing issues

To whom it may concern,Our office has had plumbing issues for the last year and a half that has inconvenienced my business. Our office is located in an “office park” building that is shared with other units – our unit is located on the ground level. We have had numerous instances where our toilet has “backed up”, clogged, and overflowed. Recently, when our toilet had overflowed, we hired plumbers from Cropp Metcalfe to come over to our office to see what exactly is causing the recurrent issues with the sewage pipes. Based on what the plumbers from Cropp Metcalfe have told us, tree roots coming from a large tree outside of our unit, in the common area, have been damaging the sewage pipes, causing the recurrent issues we have had in our office with our toilet overflowing, “backing up”, and becoming clogged.I have paid over $700.00 out of my own pocket for the plumbing services from Cropp Metcalfe – just this year alone. Since the issue is stemming from a tree in a common area of the office park, not from our office, I have contacted the association – South Tysons Office Park Board, to see if they could cover the fees from Cropp Metcalfe, and also the fees for the removal of the large tree in the common area.The board has decided that this is solely my responsibility, and they do not want to remove the tree, or pay for the plumbing bills. The pipes still need to be replaced, and of course there will be additional fees for that as well. I have a copy of the email sent to me from the executive vice president / property manager for the South Tysons Office Park Board that I would like to forward to you, if possible, so you can have a better understanding of my situation with the board.I have been paying quarterly fees to the South Tysons Office Park Association for the last 12 years. I would like to them for pay for issues that are occuring from the common area outside of my unit, since I am obviously not the cause of the tree roots damaging the pipes.I would like to know my legal rights regarding the decision that has been made by the board. Please advise me on how to resolve this issue with the board.Thank you.Sincerely,Mitra Hooshangi, D.D.S., LLC

Yeah I moved into an apartment on August 12th of this year.

Yeah I moved into an apartment on August 12th of this year. Less than 30 days after moving in we had a termite infestation in our bedroom, which they came in and vacuumed them and told us not to open the windows. This left our house extrmeley hot and stuffy, but if we opened the windows termites were pouring in. So fast forward to this Sunday, they infested the apartment again and even more this time. The maintenance vacuumed them and then AGAIN yesterday they came back, and we found them in our clothes, shoe boxes, even eating into our brand new furtnireJA: Because real estate law varies from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?Customer: CAJA: Has any paperwork been filed?Customer: No.....we asked them very specifically if they have any issue with pests and they said no and did not include any type of disclosureJA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: No not at this point

I own a office condominium in Charlottesville, VA. Recently,

I own a office condominium in Charlottesville, VA. Recently, the Condo Association asked if they could determine whether or not a plumbing leak was coming from my particular unit. After inspecting my unit, which included opening up walls to look for the leak, the contractor saw that I still had Qest plumbing pipe in the walls. The leak was in the slab, not within my unit, so it wasn't my responsibility. He recommended having the Qest removed/replaced since the Sheetrock was already exposed. I said "sure," go ahead...no estimate or quote was offered, but they went ahead a replaced all the Qest, repaired the Sheetrock, and painted. Several weeks went by, and I receive a $3,700 bill for all this work. What, if any of this, is my responsibility?

This is a question related to New York real estate. I am

This is a question related to New York real estate.I am looking to remodel my apartment and in particular move a bathroom do a different location which will require some new plumbing. Some of this plumbing (directly related to a new kitchen sink, bathroom sink, bathroom toilet and bath in my apartment) need to go firstly through the walls in my apartment and then through the concrete floor and into the dropped ceilings of the apartment below me before connecting into the main stack (including in particular a waste pipe for a toilet)What I would like to understand is once those pipes go in, based on the Recorded Declaration and By laws for my condo, who will have the responsibility for the maintenance of those pipes and for example if there was a leak in the part of these new pipes that is a) in my apartment and causes damage to the apartment below, or b) in the dropped ceilings of the apartment below and causes damage to that apartment, who will be responsible for i) the repair of those pipes and ii) the repair of the damage to the condo below, assuming no negligence.Is this something you can advise on?
